BETHLEHEM - Danny Watkins might not be the only rookie starting on the Eagles' offensive line this season. Jason Kelce, a sixth-round center out of Cincinnati, is getting a long look with the first team in training camp. "He's a superior athlete. He's just so quick," Watkins, the first-round right guard from Baylor, said when asked about Kelce after a muggy morning practice. "I really like playing next to him. He just comes off the ball and he's so fast. He reminds me of the fastest hedgehog you've ever seen - his facial hair, and his [spiky]

The Eagles' main components are getting healthy just in time for the regular season. Guard Todd Herremans (ankle), linebacker Ernie Sims (forearm), and defensive end Trent Cole (ankle) were all back on the practice field Tuesday, along with center Jamaal Jackson, who delivered snaps for the first-team offense and showed no ill effects from battling defensive linemen in one-on-one drills Monday. All four are projected starters, when fit. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson was the only big piece of the picture missing, although head coach Andy Reid said that was because he had his wisdom teeth removed Monday.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Sometimes during meetings Howard Mudd feels the need to impart his wisdom on the latest group of linemen he is trying to mold. He came out of a one-year retirement to coach these guys. This group needs to be a brick wall to protect Michael Vick; that is, an athletic brick wall with quick feet, as Mudd prefers. So Mudd interrupts his meetings to tell stories. Later, rookie center Jason Kelce and his teammates will joke about it. Mudd's almost 70, and he doesn't realize his stories tend to drag on, but his intentions aren't dismissed.

Like a shot of adrenaline, DeSean Jackson has injected the Eagles with big-play gusto, and in the process he has emerged among the league's elite wide receivers. Although he was listed as questionable with a groin injury (relieved in part by a pregame cortisone shot), Jackson had his best game receiving as the Eagles throttled the Chiefs, 34-14, yesterday at Lincoln Financial Field. The second-year player finished with six catches for a career-high 149 yards and scored on an electrifying 64-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter.

The Eagles are making another change on the offensive line, this one just four days before the team's season opener Sunday in St. Louis. Guard Kyle DeVan, whose first practice with the Eagles was Monday, practiced with the starters Wednesday, ahead of rookie Danny Watkins, who has struggled at right guard. Neither coach Andy Reid, DeVan, nor Watkins would confirm the move, or say if it is permanent, but a team source said the change has been made. Wednesday practice lineups generally reflect Sunday's starters.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Mike McGlynn needed someone to snap to. But how many centers have a ready-made quarterback on call? So in the off-season, the Eagles offensive linemen picked the person closest to him to take snap after snap after snap. "I put my wife four yards back in the shotgun, and I made her catch them," McGlynn said Monday. "She looks at me and she just shakes her head: 'Really, do I have to do this?' " And McGlynn's husbandly response to his wife, Megan, was?
