DeSean Jackson hyper-extends right knee ... MRI for Cornelius Ingram ... Jason Peters, Stacy Andrews practice

Left offensive tackle Jason Peters and guard Stacy Andrews returned to practice Saturday morning, leaving the Eagles short just one starter up front - right tackle Shawn Andrews.

Peters is nursing a strained quadriceps while Stacy Andrews is coming off knee surgery.

But the big news revolved around wide receiver DeSean Jackson (above), who was carted off the field after jamming his right knee trying to get off the bump of cornerback Asante Samuel.

Jackson tried to walk the injury off but wound his way to the trainer's tent, who radioed for the cart.

Doing rehab work on the side during the morning practice were defensive end Victor Abiamiri (strained pect), tight end Cornelius Ingram (knee) and tight Matt Schobel (calf).

Later in tbe morning practice cornerback Ellis Hobbs, acquired from the New England Patriots, replaced veteran Sheldon Brown in the nickel defensive pass package.

Last year Joselio Hanson replaced Lito Sheppard in the nickel.

Sheppard was unhappy with his contract. Ditto Brown.
