Eagles still trying new things over final 4 games

Associated Press  |  Last updated December 05, 2012
The Eagles are still trying to find a way to fix the problems that have hit them during a season to forget. Tommy Brasher took over as defensive line coach at practice for the first time since he replaced the fired Jim Washburn this week. Philadelphia's wide-nine defensive line alignment was getting less emphasis. Nick Foles took first-team snaps knowing he'd be the starting quarterback the rest of the season and Bryce Brown continues to play well in place of injured running back LeSean McCoy. McCoy and QB Michael Vick did not practice Wednesday. Both players have not yet passed their concussions tests and will remain sidelined. Coach Andy Reid says there's a chance McCoy could play over the final four games, if he's cleared. Philadelphia (3-9) meets Tampa Bay (6-6) on Sunday mired in an eight-game losing streak. It is the worst skid since 1968 and comes from a team that opened the season with Super Bowl aspirations. Despite the troubles, at least on the surface, Reid still sees a determined team. ''I see guys, they're upset that they're not winning, absolutely,'' he said. ''Their preparation, they're working their tail off to get better. That's an important thing at this point.'' --- NOTES: S Kurt Coleman (sternal contusion) did not practice. Coleman has 61 tackles and two interceptions this season. ... The Eagles are 0-2 vs. the NFC South. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
