Friday update: DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery are both out, per The Athletic’s Zach Berman. We should again see Travis Fulgham and Greg Ward see a good workload in a tough matchup with the Ravens.

The Philadelphia Eagles are spread thin at wide receiver and are hoping to get some reinforcements ahead of their Week 6 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Alshon Jeffery (foot) have been limited in practice and their status for Sunday is in question.

Jackson injured his hamstring in Week 3 and didn’t practice at all leading up to Week 4 before ultimately being ruled out. He did get in limited practices last week, but was again ruled out for Week 5, but coach Doug Pederson sounds more optimistic about his availability this week agains the Ravens.

Despite practicing, Alshon Jeffery is still getting back into the swing of things, with Pederson saying that Jeffery will need to practice with the starters before he can play, per Martin Frank.

Travis Fulgham has played well enough to continue running as the team’s No. 1 and if he can continue to play well, he’ll keep that job even when Jackson and Jeffery are both back.
