Sidney Jones practices for the first time

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Carson Wentz's season-ending has been all the talk this week. But the Eagles got some good news Wednesday with Sidney Jones practicing for the first time since being drafted in the second round of last year's draft.

The cornerback out of Washington has been on the shelf all season since an Achilles tear last March.

Jones is elgible to play Sunday against the Giants, but that likely won't happen.

The cornerback will be able to practice for three weeks before the team must decide if he's added to the active roster.

It's interesting how the corners seemed like a vulnerability of this team at the start, but with Jones soon joining the likes of Ronald Darby, Jalen Mills and Rasul Douglas, the future seems bright.

Coach Doug Pederson is eager to get Jones up to speed.
