IF THE EAGLES were mired in turmoil yesterday over the Thursday practice scrap between wide receiver Riley Cooper and cornerback Cary Williams, they were doing a good job of concealing it. "What happened [Thursday] in that 10 minutes didn't affect us for the rest of practice . . . We got a brotherhood in here, so it extends far beyond football," quarterback Michael Vick said. Coach Chip Kelly endorsed Vick's view, that the team put the fight behind it immediately. "We went right back to a team period, right after that.

Cary Williams says he wants to bring nastiness to an Eagles defense that is not feared around the NFL. That became clear last week against the New England Patriots, the cornerback said. Williams was benched early during Tuesday's scrimmage when he got into a physical altercation with Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson. The former Raven said that the Patriots came into the NovaCare Complex with attitude and that he and his former teammates in Baltimore would have handled the situation differently than the Eagles.

AFTER A SOLID practice showing Sunday, the first time he'd made it through an entire practice as an Eagle, someone asked wide receiver Arrelious Benn what he thought he needed to show to make the team. "Stay healthy," Benn replied. "I prove to them I can stay healthy, I'll be all right. " So much for that. The former Tampa second-round pick, who arrived with a lengthy injury history, is out for the season after tearing his left ACL in a special- teams drill yesterday, the Eagles said.

Bill Belichick has known Chip Kelly since Kelly coached at New Hampshire, but the two are coaching against each other for the first time this week. Belichick said they have "been friends for a while" and praised Kelly's program at Oregon. But Kelly's offense at Oregon is different from the one he's expected to show in Philadelphia, and Belichick had his first exposure to the Eagles system on Tuesday. The two teams practice with each other again on Wednesday and play in the preseason opener on Friday.

The Patriots are coming, and the Eagles are happy they'll have several days of reprieve from hitting each other. "To have competition against the best is always a good thing when you bring guys in," Eagles linebacker Brandon Graham said. "I'm just looking forward to a change-up, seeing some different people. Trying to pick up [Patriots quarterback] Tom Brady - it'll be fun just to see really where I am because they do a lot of different things. " New England arrived Monday night in Philadelphia and will spend the next four days here.

A grim-faced coach Bill Belichick said in Foxborough, Mass., on Wednesday that the New England Patriots will learn from the "terrible experience" of Aaron Hernandez's arrest on a murder charge and work to improve their player evaluation process. Speaking publicly for the first time since the then-Patriots tight end was arrested four weeks earlier, Belichick, who opened his 22-minute news conference by speaking from prepared notes, said he was "shocked and disappointed" to learn of the criminal investigation while he was out of the country.

IF NEW ENGLAND coach Bill Belichick really hates the way Tim Tebow plays, he has a funny way of showing it. The Patriots reportedly are signing the former Jets and Broncos quarterback to a contract and expect him in minicamp today. ESPN.com and NFL.com, citing league sources, reported the news yesterday, the same day the Patriots announced they had released backup quarterback Mike Kafka. The websites reported Tebow was being brought in to play quarterback. CBSSports.com, however, citing a source, reported that he will play tight end. Tom Brady is, of course, the starting QB. His backup is Ryan Mallett.

ONE OBLIGATION as head coach at the University of Oregon used to be a big weekly midweek luncheon attended by some of the football program's most ardent alumni and supporters. It required a trip of about 1 1/2 hours each way, some handshakes, a little speech, a brief Q-and-A. I say used to be, because Chip Kelly put an end to it during his tenure there. Instead, he attended the luncheon via videophone, gaining 3 hours of planning, film viewing. What he didn't gain was any goodwill from those ardent supporters, but if we have learned anything about the man thus far, it is that Chip Kelly is not too keen on Dale Carnegie.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - To hear Bill Belichick glumly address reporters on Monday, you'd think the Houston Texans blew New England out in the regular season - and not the other way around. "There were several things in that game that went our way, but I don't think that's really that significant at this point," the Patriots coach said in a conference call. "I don't think you can overanalyze that game. " The Patriots beat the Texans, 42-14, on Dec. 10, when Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes.

PATRIOTS linebacker Brandon Spikes isn't hiding his disdain for the NFL's replacement refs. After Sunday night's 31-30 loss to the Ravens - which featured 24 accepted penalties, including a league-record 13 that resulted in first downs - Spikes took to Twitter to blast the men in the striped shirts, writing: "Can someone please tell these [bleeping] zebras Footlocker called and they're needed Back at work!!!!" No word on whether the NFL will take action against Spikes, but the league is reviewing tape that shows his coach, Bill Belichick, physically grabbing a referee after the game to try to ask if the game-winning field goal by Justin Tucker - which narrowly went through the uprights as time expired - had been reviewed.
