Injury Report: Jackson, Peters Probable

desean_400_102713Here is the Eagles’ injury report for this weekend’s game against the Raiders:

Out: QB Michael Vick (hamstring).

Doubtful: LB Jake Knott (hamstring).

Questionable: Safety Patrick Chung (shoulder), WR Damaris Johnson (ankle), LB Casey Matthews (hip).

Probable: OLB Connor Barwin (back), LS Jon Dorenbos (groin), QB Nick Foles (concussion), WR DeSean Jackson (ankle), P Donnie Jones (left foot), T Jason Peters (shoulder, finger), RB Chris Polk (shoulder), DE Cedric Thornton (knee).

No real surprises here. The one thing to keep an eye on is the return game. If Johnson (questionable) can’t go, Brandon Boykin will likely return kickoffs. Punts are a little bit more of a mystery though. Jackson could be an option, but Chip Kelly has been hesitant to put him back there. And he might be even more hesitant, considering Jackson has an ankle injury.
