Brandon Graham was running down a screen (didn't Tom Petty sing about that?) when he landed funny, hitting the ground just under his shoulder and above the back of his ribcage. "It spasmed all my muscles up here," he said, pointing to his upper back and shoulder. Until that moment, in the second half of the Eagles' 35-32 victory at Detroit, it had been a great homecoming for Graham, the Eagles' first-round rookie defensive end. He had notched his first NFL sack early in the game, with friends and family watching.

WITH THE EAGLES cutting Hank Baskett , the future is uncertain for local production of "Kendra. " The E! show, which follows the wide receiver and Playboy Playmate bride Kendra Wilkinson , began shooting in the area several weeks ago. The couple, and their son, Hank IV , recently moved into the Residences at Two Liberty Place in Center City. Inquiries to E! and to Wilkinson's reps about plans for shooting were not returned. The Philadelphia Film Festival kicks off Oct. 14 and Ray Murray hopes it's very successful.

The Eagles Tuesday signed running back Joique Bell to their 53-man roster. Bell, who was plucked from the Buffalo Bills practice squad, worked out for the Eagles on Monday and then passed a physical. To make room on their roster, the Eagles released wide receiver Hank Baskett. This is the second September in a row that Baskett has been cut by the Eagles. Last year it was so that quarterback Michael Vick, who was serving a two-game suspension, could be added to the roster. Baskett, who is expected to be signed by Minnesota, did not record a catch in the first two games this season.

Changing quarterbacks wasn't the only puzzling thing the Eagles did yesterday. They also cut Hank Baskett, which is becoming an annual tradition this time of year, and added running back Joique (pronounced "Joyk") Bell, from the Bills' practice squad. The moves leave the team with as many running backs (four, even if you don't count fullback Owen Schmitt) as wideouts, which seems unlikely to be the mode for very long. The plethora of RBs meant Martell Mallett was released from the practice squad.

W HITNEY KOLB , wife of Eagles starting quarterback Kevin Kolb , didn't get to practice her 3-point shots yesterday because she was on nursing duty. Not for her husband, Kevin, who is recuperating from the concussion he suffered during Sunday's game, but for the couple's two daughters, 5-month-old Atley and 2-year-old Kamryn , who have earaches. Whitney probably can get away with missing practice since she has been hitting the courts hard in recent weeks as she and other Eagles' wives prepare for a celebrity basketball game.

Thirteen letters for "record-breaking crossword-puzzle builder"? That would be Bernice Gordon . At 96, the Center City resident is the oldest person to create a crossword puzzle for the New York Times, according to editor Will Shortz . (She was oldest last year, too, when she submitted one.) "I had a very fine education and a good vocabulary," the Penn grad, whose first NYT entry appeared in 1952, told me. "I was babysitting two little children and decided to make some money on the side.

If there's room, Kelley Washington may have wormed his way onto the Eagles' 53-man roster Thursday night. The wide receiver was active on both offense and special teams in the first half of the Eagles' final preseason game against the New York Jets. Washington caught two passes for 18 yards and made the type of play on punt coverage that the eight-year veteran is known for. After the Jets held, punter Sav Rocca booted an end-over-end kick that landed inside the New York 5-yard line.

At the start of every Eagles training camp, there are 80 players and a lot fretting over who will make the 53-man roster six weeks later. But, somehow, after dozens of practices, four preseason games, and hours of watching film, coach Andy Reid and his crew end up with very few tough choices when final cuts must be made by Saturday afternoon. With various places to stow and sometimes protect players - injured reserve, the physically-unable-to-perform list or the practice squad - picking the final roster essentially comes down to two or three players.

WHEN ANDY REID said yesterday that, "You want to make sure that you're right" about roster selections, he was not speaking in the theoretical. Just last summer the St. Louis Rams plucked Danny Amendola from the Eagles' practice squad and turned him into a valuable NFL player, a slot receiver with 43 catches and the sixth-best punt-return average in the NFL. When Chad Hall comes into the locker room late and out of breath from running extra routes,...
