Not as indelible as something carved in stone but still more substantial than a love letter in the sand, the Eagles' training-camp depth chart was released yesterday, revealing few surprises. Among starting positions on offense and defense, there were just two changes from the depth chart the Eagles released before the early-May minicamp, and those were necessitated by injuries. On the latest chart, Charles Crawford is listed as the starting tailback in front of Junior Tautalatasi and rookie Bobby Morse.

STATE COLLEGE - Penn State released its first depth chart of the season yesterday, and in no surprise, Tyler Ferguson and Christian Hackenberg were listed as the co-starters at quarterback. The duo has been competing for the job since the beginning of training camp, and an "OR" was the only thing between the two on the depth chart. Coach Bill O'Brien has repeatedly said the race is neck-and-neck, and he noted he plans on using both signal callers when the Nittany Lions open their season this Saturday against Syracuse at MetLife Field.

CHIP KELLY hasn't released a depth chart; the one you can access on the Eagles' website is from the end of the 2012 season and features starters who are no longer on the team, such as defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins. An inquisitive fan with a smartphone has added a little intrigue, though. "ADDiBona" - Anthony DiBona, an Eagles fan from Brooklyn - posted a lengthy recap on the Bleedinggreennation website of last weekend's Eagles Academy for Men. Buried in there, among his photos of the logo on the carpets and such, were photos of what were labeled unofficial depth charts, and they included current names.

Temple quarterback Clinton Granger has not received any promises, he said. Everything he wants, he said, he has to earn. And now the Washington High product nicknamed "Juice" is in position to earn the Owls' starting job. He entered Friday's first day of spring practice tied atop the quarterback depth chart with fellow senior Chris Coyer. Head coach Matt Rhule plans to have the Owls pass more this season, something that has raised the receivers' morale, Coyer said. Last season, Coyer threw for 946 yards, 8 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions.

BETHLEHEM — The Eagles released their first depth chart of training camp Monday, and there were no huge surprises. The biggest ripple might have been that Mat McBriar is listed as the starting punter over incumbent Chas Henry, even though McBriar acknowledged again Monday that he is still working his way back from a nerve problem that affects his plant leg. "I don't know if it's anything too official," said McBriar, 33, a two-time Pro Bowl punter...

The Eagles on Monday released their first depth chart leading up to Friday's preseason game against the Chicago Bears, and it listed Nate Allen as the team's starting safety. Nolan Carroll is listed as the Eagles' top kick returner, with Darren Sproles as punt returner. The base offense is a three-receiver set, with Brad Smith listed over Jordan Matthews in the slot. The depth chart is unofficial, and it is still premature to form any major conclusions about what it will look like when the regular season begins next month.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly bristled when queried about the depth chart, and quarterback Nick Foles offered a similar reaction when questioned about practice repetitions with the first or second team. It's clear during this week's mandatory minicamp, as it has been throughout the offseason, that the starting lineup remains a mystery even to Kelly at this point. One reason coaches often name starting quarterbacks is to eliminate speculation and ambiguity. Yet during Tuesday's practice, Michael Vick took the first snaps with the first-team offense.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Prized incoming freshman Christian Hackenberg is officially in the Penn State quarterback derby before ever taking a snap. The post-spring depth chart released Thursday listed Hackenberg and junior college transfer Tyler Ferguson, a sophomore, as the top two candidates to take over the starting job left vacated by the graduation of Matt McGloin. Coach Bill O'Brien had given every indication in spring practice that Hackenberg would get a chance to compete for the job when preseason camp opens in August.

The subtle rift that has developed between John Wooten, the Eagles' outspoken player personnel director, and the coaching staff came out of hiding. It did so after another attempt by Wooten to decide the depth chart. Unaware that he has been ruffling many feathers in the Eagles' coaches offices by telling the media who likely will be starting at various positions, Wooten continued to do so yesterday. Coaches have not appreciated reading Wooten comments regarding most free agents brought in or signed by the Eagles with regard to where they will fit in on the depth chart before taking the field.

THE EAGLES hoped veteran wideout Jeremy Maclin would be OK, especially since they released DeSean Jackson and signed Maclin to a pricey deal. They expected slot receiver Jordan Matthews, their top offensive pick, to make a splash as a rookie. They figured Marcus Smith, their top defensive pick, would contribute on special teams and push for playing time in place of veteran linebacker Trent Cole by midseason. They projected that free-agent safety Malcolm Jenkins would stabilize their secondary.

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.

Surprises have marked the first five-plus weeks of the Flyers' season, topped by winger Jake Voracek's emergence as one of the NHL's top scorers. But an under-the-radar development has helped keep the injury-plagued team afloat: the steady play of Nick Schultz, who signed as a free agent in July and figured to be the Flyers' seventh defenseman. At least he figured to be No. 7 to most observers. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall, however, was not one of them. "I said at the time, we have seven defensemen who are good defensemen," Hextall said the other day. "I've seen Nick Schultz play since he was 19. I was scouting in those years.

TODD GURLEY was back with the first-team offense as Georgia held its first practice for Saturday's game against Auburn. Gurley is returning from a four-game NCAA suspension for taking $3,000 for autographed memorabilia and other items over 2 years. Any uncertainty about Gurley's status on No. 16 Georgia's deep list of tailbacks ended when the junior was the starter on the updated depth chart released yesterday for the game against No. 9 Auburn. The depth chart can change during the practice week schedule, but Gurley appears set as the starter.

SO, ARE ALL successes created equal? Before knocking off East Carolina last Saturday in rainy South Philly, Temple (5-3, 3-2 American Athletic Conference) hadn't beaten a nationally ranked opponent since 1998. Even though it had 34 chances. So that has to be something, right? Yet in the overall scheme, maybe not as much as most of us outside the locker room would surmise. "I think you need every win," said junior defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis, one of several players whom coach Matt Rhule singled out for their selflessness in helping to make the victory possible over the Pirates, who were ranked 23rd in the College Football Playoff poll.

It seems like eons ago, but it's been only about 12 months since Christian Hackenberg, less than three months after his high school graduation, stood on the grand stage at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., as Penn State's starting quarterback in the team's season opener. Hackenberg got through it by completing 22 of 31 passes for 278 yards in his debut, a 23-17 win by the Nittany Lions over Syracuse. Now, for the 2014 opener against Central Florida in Dublin, Ireland, it's a bigger, more mature, and more confident Hackenberg who will lead the Lions offense onto the field Saturday at Croke Park.

When the Eagles released the first version of their depth chart earlier this week - what coach Chip Kelly would prefer to call a "seating chart" - the listings for the defensive positions had been scrubbed clean of any reference to an assigned side of the field or to other limited job descriptions. Defensive coordinator Bill Davis has said his players must be able to adjust to whatever the opposing offenses present. His cornerbacks have to be strong enough to play press coverage and fast enough to run with wide receivers, and to switch sides seamlessly.

When Chip Kelly ran onto Lincoln Financial Field on Aug. 9, 2013, it marked his first experience with the NFL's preseason. In college, Kelly's preseason games consisted of intrasquad scrimmages. His introduction to the NFL - even a watered-down version - came with much intrigue. There is less intrigue about Kelly regarding Friday's game against the Bears in Chicago. The first season only elevated the excitement in Philadelphia, but some of the mystery of his offense has been documented 17 times on film.

RILEY COOPER is out of the walking boot, but he won't play for the Eagles tomorrow night at Chicago, Chip Kelly indicated yesterday. Kelly said he wasn't sure about Jeremy Maclin, who missed 2 days of practice with what Maclin said were sore legs from an unaccustomed training-camp workload, as he comes back from ACL surgery a year ago. More and more, the first preseason game of 2014 shapes up as a showcase for the Eagles' young receivers, such...
