PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles were down to one healthy wide receiver at practice Thursday.

DeSean Jackson, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and John Hightower were sidelined and Alshon Jeffery still is recovering from foot surgery last season.

Rookies Jalen Reagor and Quez Watkins already are on injured reserve. That left Greg Ward as the only wideout from the active roster on the field.

He was joined by Deontay Burnett, Travis Fulgham and Marcus Green from the practice squad.

Burnett played 39 snaps against Cincinnati on Sunday and caught three passes for 19 yards. Watkins began practicing this week and is eligible to be activated.
