DeSean Jackson among several Eagles out for Sunday
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles will be missing several key players when they visit Minnesota, including wide receiver DeSean Jackson, cornerbacks Ronald Darby and Avonte Maddox and running back Darren Sproles.
Jackson hasn’t played since suffering an abdomen injury in Week 2. He had two touchdown catches on deep throws in the season opener. Darby is missing his third straight game with a hamstring injury and Maddox suffered a neck injury in Week 4.
Sproles injured his calf last week. Also, defensive tackle Tim Jernigan remains sidelined with a foot injury.
The Eagles (3-2) have won two straight entering Sunday’s game against the Vikings (3-2).
