Injury report

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was a limited participant in practice because of a fractured right index finger and his status for Sunday's game against Philadelphia remains uncertain.

Jackson said he took a few snaps during practice and that the finger felt fine, but backup Kelly Holcomb could be in line for his third start of the season.

In addition to Jackson, the Vikings listed five players as limited participants, including running back Chester Taylor (groin), tight end Visanthe Shiancoe (groin) and guard Anthony Herrera (knee).

Safety Dwight Smith (hamstring) and linebacker Vinny Ciurciu (ankle) did not participate.

Other players limited, in addition to those already mentioned, were defensive end Erasmus James (shoulder) and fullback Naufahu Tahi (knee).

For the Eagles, safety Brian Dawkins (personal), offensive tackle Jon Runyan (glute) and linebacker Takeo Spikes (shoulder) did not participate in practice.

Cornerback Lito Sheppard (knee) was limited.
