Injuries: Mike Wallace returns to Eagles practice

Mike Wallace is back at practice for the first time since breaking his leg in Week 2.

The Philadelphia Eagles receiver returned from injured reserve this week.

Wallace was listed as "limited" in practice on Wednesday, but the Eagles only conducted a walkthrough, making that designation an estimation.

The 32-year-old receiver signed in Philadelphia the offseason to be a deep threat but didn't catch a pass in less than five quarters before suffering the broken leg (the injury occurred on a reception that was negated by penalty).

Wallace is hoping to be cleared for a potential return in the Week 17 tilt versus the Washington Redskins. Getting the veteran back could provide Philly with a deep threat they've been missing all season as the Super Bowl champs attempt to sneak into the playoffs in the regular-season finale.

Also from Thursday's practice, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (hip) was a full participant after being limited Wednesday. Safety Corey Graham (illness) made a full return. Offensive tackle Jason Peters (quad), who's expected to play Sunday, was limited. Defensive end Michael Bennett (foot), cornerback Sidney Jones (hamstring) and quarterback Carson Wentz (back) remained out.
