If we close our eyes and pretend that left tackle Jason Peters wasn’t lost for the season back in the spring, you could make the argument that the Eagles will head into their season opener with Cleveland on Sunday at full strength.
Jason Babin, Michael Vick, and Colt Anderson–three of the team’s biggest injury concerns–each practiced today.
Babin told reporters after practice that he is “98.9″ percent ready to go. At this point he appears to be a virtual lock to play on Sunday. Meanwhile, Anderson’s status is a bit more of an uncertainty.
“I could play; I could not,” he said. “It’s all still up in the air.”
One other notable absence for much of this preseason has been linebacker Casey Matthews. Matthews also practiced today, but he’s not expected to play.
