Jason Avant was a full participant in practice for the first time since suffering an injury in the Eagles' last game against the Cowboys. Avant has a good chance of playing Sunday against the Cowboys.

"Feel pretty good," Avant said. "I still got some work to do. Hopefully I can be ready for Sunday, that's my goal."

 

Avant is listed as the starting receiver with DeSean Jackson on injured reserve. Avant wouldn't reveal how he'll be used, but he's typically a slot receiver. It's more likely Damaris Johnson and Riley Cooper would fill Jackson's spot.
