This is never good news to hear, especially right before the Super Bowl. Throughout some of last week and all of this week, Eagles defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan has been battling an illness. Though, the 25-year-old was well enough to participate in a press conference this week. Accordingly, he said this is the best he’s ever felt this late in the season.
#Eagles DT Timmy Jernigan (illness) did not participate in today’s practice. … RB Jay Ajayi (ankle), DT Fletcher Cox (calf), LB Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring) all practiced fully.
