The two brothers played against each other Sept. 26, 2004, when Stockar was a starting right offensive tackle for Detroit. The Eagles beat the Lions, 30-13. Jerome McDougle had one tackle in that game.
At least with the game on Sunday, Jerome McDougle won't have to answer questions about his 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct that led to a 44-yard field goal last Sunday in the 23-21 loss to Tampa Bay.
"I was past that right after it happened," he said. "That is the biggest thing in the NFL; you have to have a short memory."
Jags injury update. Three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Marcus Stroud has been declared out for tomorrow's game with an ankle injury. This will be his third consecutive missed game. Cornerback Terry Cousin will miss his second consecutive game with a groin injury.
For the second day in a row, Jacksonville quarterback Byron Leftwich missed practice with a left ankle injury. Leftwich is listed as questionable. Backup David Garrard, who hasn't thrown a pass this year but was 5-1 while replacing an injured Leftwich last season, would get the start if Leftwich can't play.
"We've prepared for both guys, and I think both of them are tremendous football players," Eagles coach Andy Reid said.
Wide receiver Matt Jones, who has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, practiced all week and is listed as questionable. Strong safety Donovin Darius, a graduate of Camden's Woodrow Wilson High, returned to practice yesterday after sitting out Thursday with a knee injury. He is listed as probable.
No hurts. For the second straight day, the Eagles had everybody participate in practice. It appears likely that wide receiver Dont Stallworth and cornerback Rod Hood will play tomorrow. Stallworth, listed as probable, has missed three straight games and four of the last five with a hamstring strain. Hood has been sidelined with a right heel strain.
When asked if he expects the two to play, Reid said, "Yes, there's a good chance."
In addition to Hood, the Eagles listed as questionable are tight end L.J. Smith (back) and fullback Thomas Tapeh (groin).
Eagles listed as probable are guard Shawn Andrews (back), wide receiver Reggie Brown (quadriceps), guard Todd Herremans (knee), defensive end Darren Howard (groin), linebacker Matt McCoy (hip), offensive tackle Jon Runyan (back), cornerback Lito Sheppard (hand, ankle), and running back Brian Westbrook (knee).
Stop the run. One of the keys for the Eagles will be to stop the Jacksonville running game. Veteran Fred Taylor has rushed for 451 yards (4.2 average) and two TDs. Rookie Maurice Jones-Drew of UCLA has rushed for 187 yards (4.6 average) and three TDs. Both also are receiving threats.
"Both are complete backs who run really strong but have the quickness to hit the edge," Eagles linebacker Shawn Barber said. "They are very elusive with that shake, that quick step - and are able to make people miss."
