DeSean Sidelined; Williams Absent Again

DeSean Jackson sat out practice Friday with an ankle injury.

The receiver was on the field with his teammates at the start of the session, but wore a visor instead of a helmet and was purely a spectator.

Kenny Phillips is about to become a new dad and was not at practice. A team spokesman seemed to think that the safety, who has been sidelined with knee issues, would have participated in practice otherwise. But who knows.

Meanwhile, Cary Williams was once again a no-show. The corner missed about a month of work as he took care of some personal business, which included getting married, having dental work done and tending to a house-build. The latest reason? His daughter’s recital.

LeSean McCoy was absent as well. The Eagles said that he worked out and attended meetings at NovaCare Friday, and had personal business in the afternoon.  Todd Herremans was in attendance but did not participate. No details were provided.

Jason Peters continues to be absent for personal reasons.
