No starters were sidelined for the Eagles on Tuesday when they reconvened to start preparation for Sunday’s season opener.

Outside linebacker Connor Barwin, safety Malcolm Jenkins and running back Chris Polk were practicing at the NovaCare Complex after each missed some time last week before the preseason finale.

Head coach Chip Kelly said he was told by the team doctors that Polk is good to go despite the third-year pro's hamstring injury that kept him out of all four preseason games.

The only two Eagles not practicing were rookie wideout Josh Huff and second-year backup offensive lineman Matt Tobin. Huff has been out since spraining his shoulder against the Patriots on Aug. 15 at Gillette Stadium on a kickoff return.

Tobin, who was expected to be first off the bench if there’s an injury at guard or tackle, suffered a high ankle sprain against the Steelers last Thursday in the preseason finale. He will likely be out a few weeks. Look for Andrew Gardner to be first off the bench at tackle and Dennis Kelly at guard.

Kelly had no other information on the recovery timetable for Huff. Kelly said Nolan Carroll would get the first crack at kickoff returns if Huff isn’t able to play against the Jags at the Linc.
