DE Sean Lissemore (elbow) didn't practice. He had an infection treated on his elbow. He was confident that he would practice on Friday and play on Sunday. Against the up-tempo Eagles, it is critical that every defensive lineman is available.
OLB Dwight Freeney returned to practice and worked the entire session. He was limited on Wednesday for a non-injury matter, according to the club.
DE Corey Liuget (shoulder) worked for the second straight day and is a go for Sunday.
SS Brandon Taylor (knee) was a full participant for the second straight day.
ILB Manti Te'o (foot) didn't practice, although he is running more on the side. He could return to practice next week after being out since Aug. 8. But he definitely won't play Sunday and again will be replaced by Bront Bird. Bird is making his first NFL road start and second overall.
