THE EAGLES gave running back Chris Polk his freedom yesterday when they rescinded their restricted free agent offer sheet, making Polk eligible to sign with any team, a source close to the situation confirmed. Yesterday was the deadline for Polk to sign the sheet, the last day he was eligible to get offers from other teams before his rights reverted completely to the Eagles. With DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews all ahead of Polk on the depth chart, the Birds didn't have much of a role to offer Polk.

The Eagles rescinded their restricted free agent tender to running back Chris Polk on Friday, according to a source close to the situation. The move allows the three-year veteran to sign with any other club and ends his Eagles career. The team had tendered Polk at $1.54 million, which did not come with compensation if he signed elsewhere. He could have signed with another team up until Friday, but the Eagles would have had the chance to match. By withdrawing the tender, the team will not need to pay their No. 4 running back that type of salary.

EAGLES DEFENSIVE end Cedric Thornton signed his 1-year restricted free agent tender yesterday. Thornton, who turns 27 in June, will make $2.356 million this season. The Birds' 2011 draft was a disaster - of the 11 selections, only center Jason Kelce has made a continuing impact. But Thornton, signed as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Arkansas, has been a bright spot. The Eagles still have yet to sign restricted free-agent running back Chris Polk or exclusive rights free agent Jeff Maehl.

Eagles guard Danny Watkins practiced this week despite what the team has called a chronic ankle injury, but he still is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. Dennis Kelly, who has started three games at right guard in place of Watkins, practiced at right tackle this week. If Watkins cannot play or must leave the game, the Eagles have the option of veteran guard Jake Scott, who signed with the team on Monday.   McNutt as RGIII To prepare for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III this week, the Eagles used practice squad wide receiver Marvin McNutt at quarterback.

Veteran inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans is officially questionable for tomorrow night's game against the Giants while fellow inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks and running back/kick returner Chris Polk were ruled out. Ryans, who suffered a groin injury in last Sunday's Eagles win, was a limited participant in practice yesterday and Thursday. Neither Kendricks (calf), who hasn't played since Week 2, nor Polk (hamstring) participated in practice all week. The only others officially ruled out were center Jason Kelce (hernia)

Wide receiver Josh Huff (shoulder) and offensive lineman Matt Tobin (ankle) were declared out for Monday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Neither played last week or practiced this week. Running back Chris Polk (hamstring), wide receiver Brad Smith (groin), and cornerback Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) are all probable. Polk missed the preseason and season opener, but he could make his debut. The Colts will miss inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman, who is out with a hamstring injury.

DeMeco Ryans was listed as questionable for the Eagles' Sunday night game against the New York Giants. The starting inside linebacker was limited at practice for the second day in a row. Ryans said on Thursday that he was hopeful he could play, but that he wasn't going to put the Eagles in a precarious position if he wasn't healthy enough to compete. The Eagles are already short at inside linebacker. Mychal Kendricks was declared out for the fourth straight game with a calf injury.

CHICAGO - Jeremy Maclin started for the Eagles on Friday, marking the veteran wide receiver's first game since Dec. 30, 2012. Maclin, who missed practice time this week with leg soreness, did not play in 2013 because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. He finished with one catch for 15 yards, hauling in the only pass on which he was targeted. Fellow wide receiver Riley Cooper did not play beacuse of a foot injury that has sidelined him for most of training camp.

Crunch Time is a compilation of notable hits, and a few misses, from Eagles training camp. BETHLEHEM — Mike Kafka and Bryce Brown botched a handoff exchange during the live period, a goal-line set. Kafka tried to run it in himself. Defense didn't wait for a ruling on the red jersey and hitting the quarterback. It wasn't Michael Vick. A couple defenders crunched the backup. Dion Lewis did not have as good a day Wednesday as he's been having. Fumbled after a big hit from Vinny Curry, dropped a pass at the sideline.

The Eagles promoted running back Matthew Tucker from the practice squad and released cornerback Jordan Poyer on Saturday. The move was made because running back Chris Polk was downgraded from questionable to out for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys with a shoulder injury. Tucker is an undrafted rookie from Texas Christian who was with the team throughout training camp and the preseason. He has spent the last six weeks on the practice squad. Tucker will likely be active and contribute on special teams.

THEY ARE ALL too familiar now, the names used to indict Eagles general manager Chip Kelly. Evan Mathis should still be on the offensive line. Jeremy Maclin should still be catching passes. At this point, maybe you wish Shady was still here, too. Nick Foles? Ah, not so much. But here are some names often overlooked, names that might have as much, or even more, to do with why the Eagles have lost three games this season by a total of six points. James Casey. Chris Polk. Casey Matthews.

Kenjon Barner returned to the sideline after a 68-yard punt-return touchdown Saturday to share a moment with Chip Kelly. The Eagles' coach, who also coached Barner at Oregon, delivered a message to one of the team's preseason standouts. "He was happy for me, but he told me, 'You don't reach the ball,' " Barner said. "I said, 'You're right, I apologize.' So that's what that moment was about. " Barner carried the ball with one hand for the final 10 yards of his return, which could make a killjoy out of any coach.

DARREN SPROLES was everything the Eagles hoped he'd be when they picked up the then-30-year-old running back at a garage sale in New Orleans last year for a fifth-round pick. He led the league in punt returns with a 13.0-yard average. He had a career-high six rushing touchdowns and registered the second-highest rushing average of his career (5.8 yards per carry). Went to his very first Pro Bowl. Interestingly, the one thing he didn't really do was have much of an effect on the Eagles' passing game.

CHIP KELLY starts training camp Sunday, and by the time he's done his decision-making, the roster will have 53 players on it. Here's one man's opinion on what Kelly will wind up with: Quarterback (3) Sam Bradford Mark Sanchez Tim Tebow Cutdown casualty: Matt Barkley Comment: Kelly has kept three QBs the last two years and that isn't expected to change this season. If Bradford stays healthy, he'll be the starter and Sanchez will be the backup. There will be no "open" competition for the starting job. Tebow has worked his butt off the last two years to improve his throwing mechanics, but I didn't see a whole lot of difference in him in the spring workouts.

SO NOW that we've beaten to a pulp LeSean McCoy's jilted premise that Chip Kelly doesn't like talent-rich African-American players, the question remains: Why, exactly, is McCoy a Buffalo Bill these days and not a Philadelphia Eagle? Yes, I know Kelly's explanation claimed it was simply a monetary decision, that he could fill his linebacker need with a lesser-priced Kiko Alonso and have oodles of money left to add a lesser-priced running back - a two-for-one, I think it was called.

AS WE NEAR the end of the Marcus Mariota watch, with the first round of the NFL draft set for tomorrow evening, a couple of interesting reports about the Eagles have surfaced. The first, from ESPN's Chris Mortensen, alleges that the Eagles and quarterback Sam Bradford are discussing a contract extension, but that Bradford wants a no-trade clause for this season and will not sign an extension with any other team. You have to wonder if that will still be a consideration after tomorrow, since the Eagles are hardly going to look to trade their presumptive starting quarterback during training camp, or after the season starts.

The Eagles began spring workouts on Monday, and while Tim Tebow was at the NovaCare Complex after he signed a one-year contract, the team was without Evan Mathis, Mychal Kendricks and Chris Polk. Mathis, who has been the subject of trade speculation and has it made it clear that he wants a new contract, stayed away from the start of workouts and isn't expected to participate any time soon, an NFL source said. The workouts are voluntary, but the left guard was in attendance last year even though he was unsatisfied with his contract situation then and was also on the trading block.
