Top special teams tackler H.B. Blades and blocking tight end Todd Yoder are back after not practicing on Thursday. They should both play Sunday in Philadelphia.

Blades, who leads the Redskins with 21 special teams tackles, was limited on Wednesday and out Thursday to rest the right knee he had scoped on Oct. 27.


Yoder, who has two catches, both for touchdowns, since Pro Bowl tight end Chris Cooley broke an ankle against the Eagles on Oct. 26, has been playing with a painful toe injury for a month. Yoder said Thursday that he would play Sunday even if the swelling in the toe didn’t go down further.
