EAGLES TIGHT END Brent Celek was not injured in an early morning car crash yesterday in South Philly. Celek was one of four passengers in the car driven by Sean Glynn, 35, of Philadelphia, who was charged with driving under the influence after failing a field sobriety test, state police said. Glynn is listed as the general manager of the 879 Lounge, the Chestnut Street bar Celek owns with teammate Todd Herremans. Police said the 2012 Audi A8L was going too fast and spun out of control, crashing into a concrete carrier at the Packer Avenue off-ramp of I-95 at around 2:30 a.m. In a statement issued through the Eagles, Celek said, "As far as the events of last night are concerned, the bottom line is I showed extremely poor judgment.

MOBILE, Ala. - Brent Celek might get to retire an Eagle. But judging from his consistency and durability during his first nine seasons, the tight end may outlast the three-year contract he agreed to on Tuesday. Celek had two years added to his existing deal and will be signed through the 2018 season. The total worth of the contract is $13 million, with $6 million guaranteed. Celek was slated to earn $5 million in the final year of his previous contract. While the exact details are not known, the new contract is expected to lower Celek's salary-cap number for 2016.

There were many candidates, but Michael Vick gave his game ball to his favorite target on Sunday. "[Brent] Celek's the man," Vick said of his tight end. "He's definitely Player of the Game. " Vick will get much of the credit for the Eagles' 24-23 comeback win over the Ravens - as he should - but Celek was a dominating presence in the middle of the field from start to finish. Celek caught a 23-yard pass on the Eagles' first offensive play Sunday and he caught two passes for 37 yards on the Eagles' game-winning drive.

Kevin Kolb wants to get a haircut. The Eagles quarterback returned to the Philadelphia area and participated in informal workouts with his teammates for the first time on Thursday. Sporting shaggy hair and a goatee, Kolb - the poster player for NFL lockout sob stories - looked as if he was boycotting the barber until his future was resolved. "I'm not getting a haircut until I'm at a press conference with my next team or this team," Kolb said, repeating a joke he has made to friends.

One day after he shut down Shawn Andrews for the season, Eagles coach Andy Reid wasn't closing the door on the tackle's future with the Eagles or his future in the sport. Asked if Andrews' back injury was career-threatening, Reid answered yesterday, "I wouldn't say that at all. " The Eagles placed Andrews on injured reserve Tuesday after a roller-coaster preseason that saw the tackle go from nearly invisible to making bold proclamations about his return to suddenly reinjuring his back three days before the opener.

Here is an excerpt from Thursday's fantasy football chat on Philly.com with columnist John Gonzalez: Gonzo: These Thursday games are throwing my fantasy football week out of whack. I'm more of a "wait-till-Sunday-morning-to-set-the-lineup kind of guy. " Hangovers and fantasy football have a symbiotic relationship. We'll press on anyway. Comment from Brett:  Dwayne Bowe, my friend! I just chuckle now every week when I see he caught a TD on what was supposed to be a horrible KC team.

During the preseason, Zach Ertz heard often from fantasy football owners who thought he would become one of the NFL's breakout tight ends in 2014. He was a popular pick to accumulate statistics because of a scorching second half of 2013 and the opportunities available in the Eagles offense. Ertz never let them in on something: He did not think he would match the hype because he would not play enough to do so. "I knew going in it wasn't going to be as good as everyone projected, because I knew we were going to be a one-tight-end offense," Ertz said.

THE CONCUSSION Sam Bradford suffered Sunday seems much more likely to sideline him this week against Tampa Bay than the shoulder injury that drew everyone's attention as Bradford cradled his left arm while heading off for X-rays in the third quarter of the Eagles' loss to Miami. A medical source said the Grade II AC joint sprain to Bradford's nonthrowing shoulder is the sort of thing a quarterback could play through, given the right pain medication. But concussions obviously aren't like that, and 94WIP's Howard Eskin reported that Bradford had trouble remembering the first half of the game when questioned Sunday.

Even though he didn't practice for the second straight day with a sprained right ankle, Jason Peters insisted yesterday that he would be ready to play against the Chargers on Sunday. It's hard to doubt the Eagles left tackle. Last month, he suffered an identical ankle injury at Oakland only to return the following week. And last week against Dallas after Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff rolled on his leg, Peters took what amounted to only a quarter off before reentering the game.

IT WAS CLASSIC Brent Celek. The Eagles were having one of their "live" training camp practice periods last week at the NovaCare Complex, which means tackling and hitting were permitted. The 31-year-old tight end took a short pass from Sam Bradford, turned to run with the ball, and was immediately met by safety Rodney McLeod, who drilled him full-force in the sternum. Most players would have been knocked on their butt and been slow, very slow, to get up. Celek? McLeod's hit did bring him to one knee, but the rest of his body refused to budge.

Brent Celek couldn't sleep on Monday night. It was his 31st birthday, and the details had been finalized on a new three-year deal. Celek put pen to paper on that contract Friday. The Eagles tight end called it "one of the greatest days of my life. " Celek signed contracts that were more lucrative than this deal, which a league source said pays him $13 million, with $6 million guaranteed. But this deal likely ensures that Celek will finish his career where it started. "This is the greatest city to play for in the NFL," Celek said.

WHEN HE WAS taken fourth overall by the Eagles in 2013, Lane Johnson had a feeling the franchise saw the left tackle position in his future. He'd played it in college, and, with a talented but aging Jason Peters at left tackle, it seemed he could be a natural successor. With the news Friday that the Eagles signed Johnson, 26, to a new six-year deal that locks him up through 2021, his move to the left side of the offensive line could be nearing. "I think that's what they drafted me for," Johnson said Friday.

MOBILE, Ala. - Before he was so rudely interrupted a year ago, Howie Roseman was trying to build an atmosphere in which players drafted by the Eagles would stay with the Eagles, would feel valued by the organization, and would build valuable continuity for the team. Roseman, back in charge of Eagles personnel after a yearlong hiatus at the insistence of former coach Chip Kelly, is moving to re-establish that initiative this week with new deals for the team's top two tight ends, Zach Ertz (five years, $42.5 million, on Monday)

SAM BRADFORD has been cleared by an independent neurologist, the Eagles said, meaning he has completed the NFL concussion protocol, but Bradford was just a partial participant in Monday's practice, the only full-scale workout before the Thanksgiving game at Detroit. So it seems likely Mark Sanchez will again quarterback the Birds against the Lions; offensive tackle Lane Johnson said that was his expectation. The two other concussed Eagles, running back Ryan Mathews and tight end Zach Ertz, are expected to sit, as well.

BRENT CELEK and Jason Kelce are Chip Kelly guys. They've embraced the training methods, the pace, the ideas about spreading the field. They've defended Kelly after losing friends to the coach's personnel/culture dictates. Kelly makes no secret of their importance to his offense's blocking game and to his locker-room culture. The veteran tight end and the savvy center are the rocks upon which Kelly has built his vision of the Eagles, or at least, they are among the handful of broadest bricks at the base of the pile.

Coach Chip Kelly calls tight end Brent Celek the "epitome of a Philadelphia Eagle. " Celek, a blue-collar player who has been with the Eagles longer that every player except long snapper Jon Dorenbos, says he has been indirectly pushed by his grandfather, Ed Celek, who is a retired business manager and supervisor of buildings and grounds for schools in Fremont, Ohio. Ed Celek went to Notre Dame to play football, "but his mom died and he had to go home and take care of his family, so he really never got to live out the football dream," Brent Celek said after a practice last week.

It's that time of year again. While sportswriters and fans make a game of predicting the Eagles' 53-man roster, some players will have their lifelong dreams of playing in the NFL spoiled by the time the cutdown deadline rolls around Saturday at 4 p.m. Chip Kelly, given complete control of personnel this offseason, assembled a roster that is deep at running back, wide receiver, tight end, defensive line and inside linebacker. But there are still areas of concern like the offensive line, outside linebacker and the secondary, and that is where the Eagles coach may have to make some of his most difficult 53-man decisions.
