The Eagles were back at practice today, studying and implementing the gameplan for this weeks critical game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Here are some of the highlights and news that came out of the NovaCare Complex. 

1. The Eagles have been relatively lucky on the injury front, and all of their starters practiced today, including Trent Cole and Jason Peters. Both should be "good to go" this Sunday according to head coach Andy Reid. 

2. Although he is not a starter, Brandon Graham was back in pads today for the first time in over 100 days. Graham said that he did not feel sore afterwards, and feels like he could play on Sunday if the coaches asked him to. The Eagles have a little less then 3 weeks to decide whether or not to activate him. If they did, they would have to release a player from the active roster.

 

3. Ronnie Brown spoke today about the failed trade between the Eagles and Detroit Lions that kept him in Philadelphia. His locker is pretty far from Asante Samuels, but Samuel could have learned something as Brown handled the situation like a professional. Give Brown credit for keeping a positive attitude through what has been a very disappointing season for him so far. 

 

4. For those that did not hear, Asante Samuel lashed out again at the front office. The Eagles are expected to respond in a statement sometime soon.

5. Jason Kelce talked today about finally having, what he thinks, is a good matchup in Dallas DT Jay Ratliff. Kelce and Ratliff are same in stature, making it the first time this season that Kelce will not be outweighed significantly by his opposing assignment.
