The Birds could use some beef and depth on the defensive line, so this is perfect timing:
#Eagles DT Tim Jernigan has been cleared to return to practice.

Jernigan has been on the shelf since undergoing back surgery in May.
The Birds now have three weeks to get him on the active roster.
From the team website:
Jernigan, who is on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list, can participate in practice for the next 21 days. The Eagles can place Jernigan on the 53-player active roster at any point during this three-week window. At its conclusion, the Eagles have to either put Jernigan on the active roster or he stays on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list for the remainder of the season.
