One man's trashed knee is another man's treasured chance at another shot in the NFL...or so it seems to go in the league, which is about ever-changing rosters and injury replacements.

Steve Vallos is Next Man Up for the Eagles.

Steve Vallos will back up Dallas Reynolds at center but can also play guard. Vallos is in his 6th season in the NFL, 6-3, 310, a native of Youngstown who was drafted 22nd in the 7th round of the 2007 NFL draft. Vallos played his college ball at Wake Forest. He was drafted by Seattle, where he spent 2007 on the practice squad, then was activated for a total of 32 games in 2008 and 2009. He started a total of 8 games. He was waived in final cuts of 2010 and was picked up by Cleveland. He appeared in 7 games for the Browns in 2010, and 1 game for them in 2011.

Vallos then was signed by the Eagles as a free agent in March of 2012. He was released by the Eagles on August 31...but now gets the call to replace the roster spot held by the injured Jason Kelce, who now goes on Injured Reserve list for the rest of the season as Kelce has wisely chosen surgery to repair his right knee.

A lot of people may not remember, but Vallos was selected to many All-American first team honors in 2006, as well as being named College Football News' ACC Player of the Year in 2006.

You could also argue SPLUNKER VALLEY (Leo) at 1-0-1 is still undefeated, but he's a half-game behind the leaders...

Holding down a tie for 3rd place are JETPACK NINJAS (Jerky), GREAT PPW, and PALM FEATHERS, and BONER all at 1-1.

BRI's BOYS (Brozer) are hanging around at 0-1-1 for sole possession of 4th place.

HAHA (Rodney), DIRTY STINKIN' BUMS (ATV-Swan-Lion), and HUDROCK HOES (Hud) are currently bringing up the rear at 0-2... but it's a long season. No need to panic, boys!
