Gets full reps Thursday
Ward (back) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.
The Eagles capped Ward's reps Wednesday while he managed his back issue, but his ability to practice fully Thursday suggests he'll be ready to go for Sunday's wild-card game in Tampa Bay. Ward is coming off a two-catch Week 18 outing in which he played a season-high 57 percent of the snaps in the Eagles' blowout loss to the Cowboys, but that was mostly a byproduct of head coach Nick Sirianni deliberately resting fellow receivers DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins for most of the second half of the regular-season finale. As such, Ward will likely be in line for a steep drop in playing time for the playoff opener.
