7:54 PM ET

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — The Philadelphia Eagles got a pivotal member behind Friday, as starting defensive tackle Tim Jernigan returned to a use margin after being sidelined given late final week with an illness.

Jernigan is one of several players and coaches that has been battling a bug.

“I’m removing over it right now. It’s like a cold, dude. we don’t know. The whole group has it, though,” pronounced linebacker Mychal Kendricks on Thursday, who simplified that he didn’t meant that literally everybody on a group is sick.

Cornerback Ronald Darby missed Thursday’s media event with an illness though has used in full all week. Running behind Jay Ajayi (ankle), defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (calf) and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring) were also full participants.

The Eagles kept to their normal use news this week and on Friday focused on red section and short-yardage situations. The padless event lasted about an hour and a half. Coach Doug Pederson opted not to have his players in pads this week, wanting to keep them uninformed this late in a year.

Afterward, Pederson stood nearby midfield, surrounded by his players, coaches and front bureau executives, and delivered a extensive speech, according to a pool report.

“Play loose, have fun, suffer a moment,” he said, relaying his message. “These opportunities, as we know, don’t come around each year. Also, make certain only to simulate on this season, simulate on a tour that got us here. But only play for one another, have fun and suffer it.”

Pederson’s crony and former teammate, Brett Favre, is scheduled to pronounce with his players Saturday morning during a group hotel. That will be followed by a half-hour walkthrough during U.S. Bank Stadium, a site of Super Bowl LII. Preparations are scarcely complete.
