"They tend to know me just from one-on-ones and just from practicing, from competing with them every day," Rodgers-Cromartie told Denver-area reporters. "They tend to know my style of play. The main thing is just to see old friends. That's going to be the fun part, but at the end of the day, I know it's a game."
Rodgers-Cromartie is listed as a starter with the Broncos, although their defensive backfield could change if Champ Bailey returns. Bailey was a limited participant in practice with a foot injury.
Either way, Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson expects his former teammate to cover him.
"I'm sure he'll probably be on me," Jackson said. "[Over the] past two years, we've been going at it a lot. I know him as well as he knows me."
Lift a glass
The Eagles are releasing their own vintage of wine for a limited time. Rollout Philadelphia Eagles 2011 California Cabernet Sauvignon will sell for $30 a bottle at locations in the area.
The wine was crafted by Napa Valley vintner Samuel Spencer of Cameron Hughes Wine to mark the Eagles' 80th anniversary.
Safety Patrick Chung missed practice for the third straight day with a shoulder injury. Coach Chip Kelly said he has not set criteria for when a player must return in order to play Sunday. The only other player on the injury list was tackle Jason Peters (finger), but he was a full participant and will play.
