Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson will be a game-time decision against the Indianapolis Colts. His concussion, suffered against the Falcons two weeks ago, still limits him at practice.

Quarterback Michael Vick completed his first full practice with the Eagles since injuring his ribs against the Redskins on October 3rd. He claims to be 100 percent and says there is no soreness in the rib area when he throws. He also says he can’t know how fully healed they are until he takes his first hit.

Running back LeSean McCoy is practicing with the team but says his cracked rib is not at 100 percent. McCoy, who has played the last three games with the injury, will definitely still play against the Colts.

Left tackle Jason Peters, who suffered arthroscopic surgery on his knee, will start against the Colts, moving King Dunlap back to the bench. Dunlap has a hyperextended left knee and would be questionable against the Colts anyway.

Right cornerback Ellis Hobbs is moving to the bench in favor of veteran Dimitri Patterson. Hobbs allowed Titans’ receiver Kenny Britt to destroy the Eagles’ defense last week. Hobbs has been struggling all season and now has a minor unspecified injury.
