Damien Covington, a star athlete at Overbrook High School who went on to play professional football, was killed Friday night as he tried to repel two home invaders, authorities said yesterday. Covington, 29, was visiting friends at the Coachman Manor Apartments in Lindenwold when two men forced their way into the apartment. Covington was shot as he struggled with one of the men. The two intruders fled on foot, said Bill Shralow, spokesman for the Camden County Prosecutor's Office.

An argument over champagne at an Old City nightclub devolved into a brutal beat-down early Sunday, leaving two off-duty police officers in the hospital and a group of football players, including former Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, facing possible arrest, according to incident reports. The 2:45 a.m. fight in the Recess Lounge on Second Street remains under investigation. Police are seeking arrest warrants. McCoy, 27, who was traded last year from the Eagles to the Buffalo Bills, was with former San Diego Chargers running back Curtis Brinkley, 30; former University of Pittsburgh player Tamarcus Porter, 27; and Christopher Henderson, 26. Some members of the group allegedly assaulted three off-duty officers - including a sergeant - in a dispute over a bottle of champagne, according to police reports.

Even after he noticed the blood in his urine, Miles Austin didn't consider that he might have played the last football game of his life. This was Nov. 30 in Orchard Park, N.Y., against the Buffalo Bills. Austin was playing for the Cleveland Browns, and he had caught a pass from Johnny Manziel - the first completion of Manziel's career - and turned up the field toward the left sideline. He tried to hurdle a defensive player, and when Austin landed on the ground, another Bills player landed on top of him. He didn't sense much pain in that instant, but after the Browns' 26-10 loss, his abdomen began to ache, as if he were having an episode of agita.

Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur will interview for the Buffalo Bills head-coaching position, a source close to the situation said. Meanwhile, NFL.com reported yesterday that Detroit director of pro personnel Sheldon White is expected to interview for the Eagles job created by last week's reorganization, running personnel under coach Chip Kelly. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Eagles have asked to talk to Kansas City player personnel director Chris Ballard. Also, the Eagles signed 2014 practice squad inside linebacker Brandon Hepburn.

The Eagles will work out offensive lineman Jared Wheeler on Monday, according to a league source. He will sign if he passes his physical, according to agent Brett Tessler. Wheeler, 24, is 6-foot-5 and 319 pounds and played at the University of Miami. He was waived by the Seattle Seahawks after the draft in May. Wheeler spent last summer with the Carolina Panthers and Buffalo Bills. He was with the Bills during the preseason, but did not make the final roster cut. Wheeler started six games at Miami in 2013 - one at left guard, two at center, and three at right guard.

If Marcus Smith were drafted in any other round, if he were one of the scores of other players from the 2014 draft trying to find an identity in the NFL in his third season, the conversations about him would be different. The questions to him would also be different. And surely, the expectations of him would be different. But Smith was the team's surprise first-round pick in 2014, and his first two years were filled with underachievement. He took 194 snaps in 21 games and totaled only eight tackles and 11/2 sacks.

No one has ever compared Fletcher Cox to Jerome Brown - at least not publicly - but Rex Ryan knew what he was saying when he compared the Eagles defensive end to one of the greatest defensive linemen in team history. "That [No.] 91 is a good player," Ryan said of Cox. "I was laughing when I saw him being compared to Jerome Brown, but I'm not laughing now. " Cox is entering rarefied air. He proved worthy of comparisons to Brown with another disruptive performance. Cox led the Eagles with a team-high seven solo tackles, recorded a sack, and had two other tackles for losses Sunday in a 23-20 win over Ryan's Buffalo Bills.

The Eagles signed veteran wide receiver T.J. Graham to a one-year contract Friday after Graham tried out for the team during their three-day minicamp this week. Graham, 26, was a third-round pick by the Buffalo Bills in 2012 out of North Carolina State. He has 61 catches for 794 yards and four touchdowns in four seasons with four teams. Almost all of that production came in his first two seasons, and he played only four games with the New Orleans Saints last year. At 5-foot-11 and 188 pounds, Graham provides speed to the Eagles receiving corps.

The Eagles started their free agent acquisitions one day early when they signed veteran cornerback Leodis McKelvin to a two-year contract Tuesday. McKelvin, 30, was released by the Buffalo Bills last week, which allowed him to sign elsewhere at any time - even before the start of the league year at 4 p.m. Wednesday, when contracts expire and free agents can begin signing with other teams. At that time, the Eagles can officially trade DeMarco Murray, Byron Maxwell, and Kiko Alonso, and they can spend the money they opened up with those trades.

FORMER JAGUARS linebacker Russell Allen said he suffered a stroke during a game last season and will never play football again. What he can do, he said, is alert other players to take head injuries more seriously. Allen, 27, told Robert Klemko of MMQB that he thought he'd had his bell rung when he collided with Bills center Eric Wood in the third quarter of a Dec. 15 game. He finished the game even though he had double vision. "You're thinking, I can't come out, because what if someone else comes in and takes my job?"

AFC EAST New England Patriots Last season: 12-4 (Won division; lost to Denver in conference championship) Coach: Bill Belichick (187-69 in 16 seasons in New England; 223-113 in 21 seasons overall) Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy: The first month of the season will be all about how Jimmy Garoppolo fares in the four games as Tom Brady sits while suspended for his role in deflating footballs. The Pats are at Arizona, and host Miami, Houston, and Buffalo in the first four. Outlook: Their string of seven consecutive division titles will get tested as the Patriots also will be without running back Dion Lewis and right tackle Sebastian Vollmer for a minimum of six weeks.

A YEAR ago, after giving up 30 touchdown passes, after allowing a league-high 72 pass plays of 20 yards or more, after finishing 31st in the league in pass defense, the Eagles blew up their defensive secondary and tried to rebuild it. They got rid of three of their four starters. They fired their defensive backs coach, John Lovett. They signed two cornerbacks - Byron Maxwell and Walter Thurmond - in free agency, giving Maxwell a six-year, $63 million contract with $25 million in guarantees.

Howie Roseman is back in charge of the Eagles' personnel department after control of the roster was ceded to Chip Kelly for one season. Roseman will maintain the title of executive vice president of football operations, but he will now be involved in personnel decisions. Tom Donahoe was named senior director of player personnel. He will handle the day-to-day operations of the department while working with Roseman on all roster decisions. The Eagles will not hire a general manager. "Howie will be responsible for making sure our player personnel department is as good as it gets in the NFL and be accountable for that, and that's pretty much the way it would go," team owner Jeffrey Lurie said.

THE EAGLES were called for five penalties on Sunday. Two were called on Dennis Kelly immediately upon entering the game, playing in an unfamiliar position. Another, on Riley Cooper chasing a punt return out of bounds, seemed ticky-tac. But then again, this was Ed Hochuli's officiating crew out there, the NFL version of a rain delay. Hochuli's crew is famous, or infamous, for numerous penalties, long pauses deciding what precisely to call, and mic'd-up explanations of those calls that take just slightly less time than the closing arguments in a trial.

Zach Ertz has caught 142 passes in his three years with the Eagles. Nine finished in the end zone. Three came in the playoffs, including a touchdown. But Ertz said none of those catches was as important as his career-long, 41-yard reception Sunday in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 23-20 win over the Buffalo Bills. Ertz's third-down catch came when the score was tied at 20 and set up Caleb Sturgis' go-ahead field goal late in the game. "I've made plays for this team the past two years, but in the situation we were in with the playoffs on the line, I think it was the most important catch," Ertz said.
