A FAMILIAR VOICE will return to the Philly radio landscape. Chio - of "Chio in the Morning" fame - will start airing his show on Mix 106.1. Chio will start broadcasting tomorrow. But there's a catch. Chio, who was let go from Wired 96.5 in December 2012, had landed at 95.7 Kiss FM, in San Diego, and he won't be moving back. Both Mix and Kiss are owned by Clear Channel, allowing for the cross-pollination. Instead, he'll do a customized broadcast from 6 to 9 a.m. Eastern time from San Diego.

FORMER EAGLES defensive end Hugh Douglas is in the news again, this time for allegedly attacking his girlfriend in a Hartford, Conn., hotel on Sunday morning. The woman, who was not identified, claims she received bruises on her neck and a bump on the head from the altercation. Douglas attributes the marks to rough sex. It was only last month that Douglas was fired by ESPN after calling his "Numbers Never Lie" co-host Michael Smith the "N-word. " Now comes word that the 42-year-old Douglas was arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend of 8 months.

MIAMI - In the first six years of his career, defensive end Jason Babin created 17 1/2 sacks. In just 13 games this year, he has 15, including three on Sunday as part of a ferocious Eagles pass rush that recorded nine sacks and knocked Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore out of the game with what the team said was a head injury. His 15 sacks this year are already one of the best single-season totals in Eagles history and are the most since Hugh Douglas had that many in 2000. He's tied for seventh in team history for most in a year, along with Douglas and Reggie White.

Sometimes it seems as though time travels faster than the speed of light. Wasn't it just yesterday that the Eagles' controversy du jour centered on Hugh Douglas rather than Terrell Owens and Brian Westbrook? Wasn't it just last week that Douglas' free-agent departure to Jacksonville sent Eagles fans into a frenzy? The truth, of course, is that Douglas left more than two years ago and has been back with the Eagles for nearly a year, after being released by the Jaguars near the end of training camp last summer.

Freddie Mitchell isn't sure the Eagles will bring him back for a fifth season even though he is not at the end of his contract. With the emergence of Greg Lewis as a deep threat, it's possible the team will attempt to trade or possibly even release Mitchell. Mitchell said he'd like to return, but admitted he was frustrated this season by his role in the offense. The Eagles receiver had 13 fewer catches for 121 fewer yards in 2004 than he had in 2003. "It was definitely a frustrating season, but we were winning," Mitchell said.

The wheel of misfortune has landed on Derrick Burgess once again. A separated sternum will keep the Eagles' starting right defensive end sidelined for at least the remainder of the regular season and possibly through the playoffs. Burgess suffered a rib injury during the Eagles' Nov. 28 victory over the New York Giants at the Meadowlands when he collided with cornerback Lito Sheppard. Despite Burgess' missing a couple of days of practice last week, he and the Eagles felt he was ready to return Sunday against the Green Bay Packers after tests revealed no serious problem.

If it seems like things are going the Eagles' way these days, it's not your imagination. After being dealt a crummy hand in the injury department last season, the Eagles have had to deal with their share of injuries again this year, but they have come at positions at which they were equipped with depth. Meanwhile, the Eagles' opponents since the second week of the season have been decimated by injuries. In Week 2, the Minnesota Vikings were without starting running back Michael Bennett, his backup Moe Williams, and starting tight end Jim Kleinsasser.

We know Hugh Douglas is funny. He proved that immediately upon his return to the NovaCare Complex yesterday afternoon. We know he's a leader. You could tell that just by the warm reception he received from so many of his old and new teammates and coaches as he watched practice with "a man purse" wrapped around his striped blue and white shirt. We don't know if Douglas, who turned 33 eight days ago, can still play the game anywhere close to the elite level he did during his five seasons with the Eagles.

Hugh Douglas is, and always has been, a talker. Have a question? Get a colorful, honest answer. Now that his first season with Jacksonville is over - with Douglas playing sparingly, the Jaguars were a dismal 5-11 - the former Eagles defensive end has taken to asking the questions as a guest reporter for the fledgling NFL Network. Last weekend, he attended the Indianapolis-Denver game and interviewed Peyton Manning, Shannon Sharpe, Rod Smith and other players after the Colts' rout.

Hugh Douglas made like a snowbird and departed for sunny Florida during the off-season. The defensive end's exodus left a large hole in the heart of the Eagles' locker room. So when Philadelphia stumbled at the start of this season, critics pointed to Douglas' absence as a big reason. But now that the Eagles appear to have steadied themselves, and their line has again been the foundation of a solid defense, at least one of Douglas' former teammates wants to dispute the often-cited theory that Philadelphia misses the all-pro's leadership.
