TAMPA — DeSean Jackson and Jason Pierre-Paul, who entered the weekend listed as questionable for the Bucs, are active for today’s game.
Jackson suffered a concussion last week and JPP hurt his knee. Having them both is a big deal for the Bucs.
In his career against the Eagles, Jackson has averaged 88 yards per game. He loves playing against his former team.
The Bucs will be without their top two corners. Brent Grimes was ruled out Friday and Vernon Hargreaves was placed on IR last week.
The only Eagles’ player who came into the weekend listed as questionable, Shelton Gibson, is also active. Gibson was listed with a knee injury, but head coach Doug Pederson said it was actually a quad.
As we already knew, Darren Sproles is out for this game. Expect Corey Clement to have a bigger role on third downs. It’ll be Clement returning punts today.
I’m told Corey Clement will handle punt return duties in place of Sproles

Here are the Eagles’ inactive players:
It’s the same six as last week, plus Sproles.
Wide receiver Kamar Aiken, who was signed Wednesday, is active. He was with the Eagles during training camp and already knows the offense. He’ll at least likely have a role on special teams today.
Here are the Bucs’ inactives: WR Justin Watson, CB Brent Grimes, RB Ronald Jones II, DT Vita Vea, DE Noah Spence, OL Alex Cappa & OL Mike Liedtke.
