Offensive line keys Eagles' surge

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Running back LeSean McCoy has regained his 2013 form.

Monday Six Pack: Eagles at Colts

The Eagles first week was defined by a troublesome first-half performance that resolved itself in the second. That was against a Jaguars team that spent Sunday getting stomped by the Kirk Cousins-led Washington Redskins. A similar performance for the Eagles against the Indianapolis Colts will almost definitely put them in the same spot as Washington – at 1-1. Andrew Luck, T.Y....

Next man up for Eagles in Indy: Dennis “Hagrid” Kelly at LG…

Just when it looked like David Molk would get his first NFL career start at left guard, Chip Kelly had a change of plan. Dennis Kelly, the 6-8, 321 lb. “Keeper of the Keys” from Purdue, will apparently start against the Colts on Monday night. You think of the giant 5th-rounder from the 2012 draft class more as a swing tackle, but his coaches like his match-up prospects against...

Eagles already 3 men down on O-Line

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Eagles started the same five offensive linemen for all 17 games last season. They won't do it two games in a row this year.

Why Darren Sproles Was a Steal

Say these names to yourself: Earl Wolff, Dennis Kelly, Dion Lewis, Julian Vandervelde, Ricky Sapp, Riley Cooper, Cornelius Ingram, Macho Harris, Fenuki Tupou.
