USA Today found a bunch of players - including including Eagles defensive end Trent Cole - who talked of troubles healing and getting prepared in time. Cole said he'll flip a mental switch to ignore his lingering aches and lagging energy as the Birds take on the Cincinnati Bengals at Lincoln Financial Field. "The mind takes over the body.

Michael Vick, several other Eagles, and a handful of locally based NFL players gathered for informal workouts in Marlton on Thursday. The quarterback was joined in South Jersey by tight end Brent Celek and wide receivers Jeremy Maclin and Jason Avant for the first time since the start of the NFL lockout. The players did not alert the media to their whereabouts, although 6ABC was on hand to capture some of the practice.

The Eagles trailed by 25 points after the two-minute warning when a running play was called for McCoy. After the game, coach Andy Reid defended keeping McCoy in the game despite the lopsided score.

IT'S NICE TO FIND somebody happy in his own skin. Actor Bradley Cooper is that guy. He sat in the executive dining room at the NovaCare Center on Wednesday, and he giggled when he recalled meeting Eagles LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson an hour before. He is an Eagles fan, unabashed and delighted. He is People magazine's Sexiest Man emeritus (actor Channing Tatum unseated him Wednesday), a designation that cemented him in the American consciousness. He is the lead in "Silver Linings Playbook," a romantic comedy set in Philadelphia and centered on the Eagles, that premieres Friday in limited release.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game: 1. What to do about Gonzo: Tight ends have been a problem the Eagles haven't been able to solve this season. In their last eight games, opposing TEs have 55 receptions for 634 yards and seven - count 'em, seven - touchdowns.
