Marcus Smith stays off Twitter and Instagram to avoid the criticism he may receive from fans, but he can't always evade his family. "I got uncles that are really passionate about football," the Eagles linebacker said. "They see me do something wrong in the game, they'll send me a text and try to correct it. Sometimes I don't text back. " Smith is already under enough pressure. Drafted in the first round by the Eagles, the rookie has played sparingly in his first five games and only because of injuries.

Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz said Chip Kelly visited him in the hospital after Cruz hurt his knee in the Oct. 12 loss to the Eagles. Kelly said Tuesday he checked on Cruz the next morning and wanted to see whether Cruz needed anything before being transferred to New York. "I just think the way he got injured and you look at what happened, we're all competitors in this game," Kelly said.

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)

Mychal Kendricks was listed as questionable on the Eagles' Friday injury report for Sunday's game at the Arizona Cardinals. Kendricks has a calf injury and has already missed four games. He was limited at practice this week and several of his teammates said on Thursday that they didn't expect the starting inside linebacker to be ready by Sunday. Kendricks declined to be interviewed by reporters this week. Casey Matthews, Emmanuel Acho and Marcus Smith have been splitting Kendrick's snaps in his absence and will likely rotate against the Cardinals opposite DeMeco Ryans.

After a week of questions about whether inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans would play Sunday night against the New York Giants, Ryans started and fortified the middle of the Eagles defense. Ryans was questionable after leaving last week's win over the St. Louis Rams with a groin injury. The linebacker was limited in practice throughout the week. But Ryans has not missed a game since he arrived in Philadelphia in 2012. Coach Chip Kelly said Wednesday, "If there is one guy that I wouldn't count out of anything, it would be DeMeco.

DEMECO RYANS - A two-time Pro Bowler, Ryans was acquired to be the answer to the question that has long loomed over middle linebacker. He has the pedigree, but has to bounce back from a down season in 2011. JAMAR CHANEY - After a fast start as a rookie, Chaney had a rocky 2011, starting at the strong side and then moving to the middle early in the season. He struggled at times, and will have to move back outside with Ryans in town. BRIAN ROLLE - Rolle was probably the team's most effective linebacker last season, and showed impressive power for his size.

HE'S CALLED "Matty Ice" as a compliment, a nod to his ability to shake off some of the worst starts and circumstances the quarterback position can experience and play the last few minutes as if someone pressed restart. Nineteen times in his four-plus seasons, Matt Ryan has driven the Atlanta Falcons to victory in the waning minutes of a game, including three straight occurrences leading into Sunday's game against the Eagles. Just perfect. A defense coming off two fourth-quarter meltdowns, a defense that just saw its coordinator fired, that will have Todd Bowles talking into DeMeco Ryans' ears for the first time this Sunday, will have its first test against a guy whose fourth quarters make Eli Manning seem like a hack.
