Following the extended absences of Jordan Hicks and Timmy Jernigan, both returned to the Philadelphia Eagles for the team’s Wednesday afternoon walk through.
Well, we can’t mark everyone present on the roll call, but two very valuable members of the Philadelphia Eagles‘ defensive unit and two of defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz‘s prized pupils, middle linebacker Jordan Hicks and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, were present on Wednesday for practice.
We can’t really say that the band is back together, but at least, the drummer is and so is the lead guitar player.
The Texans are on the horizon.

On Wednesday, the Eagles held their final walk through in preparation for Sunday’s game at Lincoln Financial Field versus the AFC South-leading Houston Texans. This wasn’t actually a full practice, but Hicks and Jernigan were still limited in what they could do.
Hicks has missed the better part of a month and four straight games with a calf injury. Jernigan has been held out of the last three Eagles contests as he continues to try and get back on track from offseason surgery.
At the beginning of May, the third of that month to be exact, Jernigan went under the knife and was placed on the team’s reserve/non-football injury list to start the 2018 regular season.
He was officially activated on November 20th, a move some questioned after he returned to the role of spectator, but these days, questionable moves by Philly’s medical team are becoming all to common.
Hicks is another story however. The most common thing about his story is the fact that he’s seemingly always dealing with something. His contract expires at the end of the current season, and the question is will he be extended. The jury is still out on that one.
