Nick Foles is once again taking the starters repetitions in practice as the Eagles prepare to face their upcoming opponent. This week it's the Packers in Green Bay. Michael Vick is still limited in practice due to a hamstring injury he re-injured against the New York Giants. Chip Kelly has not officially committed to a starter for Sunday's game yet.
Only one sat out of Wednesday's practice. That player was Eagles starting defensive end Cedric Thornton. He was been listed on the Eagles injury reports prior to playing in recent games, so it's possible the Eagles are taking it easy with him.
Elsewhere, starting cornerback Bradley Fletcher was limited in practice. Fletcher was forced to leave late in the Eagles-Raiders game and did not return. Fletcher spoke to the media on Tuesday and made it sound like he should be ready to play this week. Jason Peters, who also left the Raiders game early, was a full participant.
Eagles receiver Riley Cooper was back at practice today after being sent home on Tuesday due to an illness.
