Brent Celek enjoyed a career day Sunday as the Eagles routed the Seattle Seahawks, 26-7. But even though Celek caught six passes for 131 yards in place of the injured L.J. Smith, Eagles coach Andy Reid insisted yesterday that there is no tight end controversy. When he is healthy, Smith still will be the starter, Reid said. Smith missed Sunday's game with a concussion he suffered Oct. 26 in a 27-14 win against the visiting Atlanta Falcons. "L.J. is a starter when he comes back, and hopefully it works out for him with his [concussion]

DeSean Jackson, the Eagles' best wide receiver and the NFL's leading punt returner, left Sunday's game with a concussion that has made his status questionable at best for the team's Week 13 game against the Atlanta Falcons. Brent Celek, the starting tight end, has a sprained thumb that seemed to be a real problem for him during the Eagles' 27-24 win over the Washington Redskins. Brodrick Bunkley, one of the team's starting defensive tackles, is hobbled by a sprained ankle.

Kafka, out of Northwestern, is likely to be the third-string quarterback this year behind Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick. Harbor, from Missouri State, figures to battle with Cornelius Ingram for the job backing up Brent Celek. The Eagles have signed nine of their 13 draft picks, all from the fourth round or later. - Jonathan Tamari

On the day the Eagles drafted Zach Ertz in April 2013, Chip Kelly mentioned how the NFL had been moving in the direction of playing multiple tight ends together to create mismatches. At the time, the Patriots' two-tight end offense was in vogue. In Kelly's first season, the team's listed depth chart even included two tight ends as the base offense. But the Eagles' listed base offense during the past two seasons has been as a three-receiver set, and they barely used the two-tight end set in the first four games this season.

WHEN THEY approached Susie and Brent Celek about getting involved in trying to build a Miracle Field in Northampton Township, a safe, smooth baseball surface for kids in wheelchairs, it felt like deja vu, all over again. "I grew up in Greentown, Ohio," Susie said. "On a street with five boys, four of them named Matthew. One of them was in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the waist down. "My brother Matt built obstacle courses and other games for us to play. And he always designed them so that Matthew could play, too. He'd choose the sides for balance, matched the young kids with the older kids.
