Timmy Jernigan remains out of practice with illness


The Eagles held their first practice of Super Bowl week on Wednesday and one member of the team did not take part in the session.

Defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan was held out of the practice due to an illness. Jernigan also missed the team’s final practice of last week for the same reason, but he was well enough to speak to the media this week and said he feels the best he’s ever felt late in a season.

Three other Eagles players were listed on the injury report, although there does not appear to be any level of concern about their ability to play this Sunday. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (calf), running back Jay Ajayi (ankle) and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring) were all full participants on Wednesday.

The Eagles will practice twice more this week and declare any injury designations for Super Bowl LII on Friday.

  1. Ajayi once again injured and not putting in a full practice. That is exactly what happened in Miami. Hope he does well and lights up the stat book. If that happens it means TB will not be on the field which is good for those that want Philly to win. As far as Gronk, only one way to hold him from having a great game is to get to Brady very fast. Nobody can stop Gronk, only chance you have is to get them off their timing and make him have an average game. Philly by 4!!

  2. Is the Miami fan just upset that he has come to Philly and may win a Super Bowl, has been nothing but class and in limited touches has torched opponents?

    He’s being held out for precautionary reasons. Every single source – including this website – has said all week that he’s FULL GO for the Super Bowl. No reason to bang up a guy that you are going to feed the rock to. More important he continue to learn our playbook.

    I know it’s hard getting fleeced by Howie Roseman every year, but try not to look like a whiner. (Thanks for those great trades. I know Byron Maxwell, Kiko Alonso and not having Jay Ajayi and taking ALL THAT SALARY CAP worked out well)

  3. Remember when he poked Brady in the eye after the play in that playoff game 3 years ago, only to see the Pats over come the 14 point deficit twice to win, and go on and win the super bowl? Pepperidge farms remembers. But the haters pretend that it didn’t happen. Just like they pretend the deflation of the colts footballs didn’t happen
