Jackson was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report with a broken index finger on his throwing hand. Coach Brad Childress said Jackson will either start or be the emergency third quarterback against the Eagles, in which case Holcomb would be the starter.
``I'm still debating, the old game-time decision,'' Childress said. ``You just want to see how a guy keeps coming, keeps coming.
``I see him touch it a little bit better every day, and we'll just see if it will keep coming along.''
Jackson didn't have a splint on the finger when he walked off the practice field Friday, but when asked if his grip had gotten better he said only that the swelling had subsided. Earlier in the week, Jackson said the injury made it difficult to keep a tight spiral.
Starting safety Dwight Smith (strained hamstring) was ruled out for the second straight game. Running back Chester Taylor (strained groin) participated in Friday's practice and was listed as probable.
