Jason Peters became the second Eagles offensive lineman arrested this offseason when he was charged with disturbing the peace and resisting arrest late Friday night in Shreveport, La., police said. Peters was in Shreveport as a celebrity guest at the Bay Bay Birthday Bash at the Kokopellis nightclub. According to the police report, Peters was asked to turn down the loud music blaring from his car. He refused and said he was going to park. He also declined to provide his identification when asked by police, leading to the resisting charge.

EAGLES running back LeSean McCoy, who suffered an apparently minor knee injury in the season finale against the Giants, will not participate in the Jan. 25 Pro Bowl in Arizona, an NFL source confirmed. Also, wideout Jeremy Maclin and long snapper Jon Dorenbos were added. Maclin, a third alternate, replaces Denver's Demaryius Thomas. Dorenbos was added as a "need" player by coach Jason Garrett. Eagles named earlier were guard Evan Mathis, tackle Jason Peters, linebacker Connor Barwin, center Jason Kelce and returner Darren Sproles.

The honeymoon is over. The dental work has set. And the sconces have been picked out. Cary Williams, who missed about three weeks of organized team activities in the spring, was among the first veteran Eagles to report for training camp. Defensive backs coach John Lovett said that the cornerback reported Tuesday and was the first from his position group to arrive at the NovaCare Complex. "I was in my office with [assistant defensive backs coach] Todd [Lyght] watching cut-ups and all of a sudden Cary walks in," Lovett said Thursday.

THE AMAZING season of Nick Foles will end up in Hawaii, as we all figured. Foles, the first alternate for any of the six Pro Bowl quarterbacking spots, was assured of going when Russell Wilson took the Seahawks past the Saints into the NFC Championship Game this weekend. The Pro Bowl will be Jan. 26, in Honolulu. Foles' 119.2 passer rating led the league, as did his ratio of 27 touchdown passes to two interceptions. He would have made it outright had those numbers been compiled over the entire season, instead of 10 starts.

Two of the Eagles' best players left practice early Thursday. Jason Peters departed with a quadriceps injury, and Malcolm Jenkins went to the locker room with a hamstring injury. The severity of both injuries was not reported. Peters' injury is notable because the left tackle had lingering injuries last season, and he missed two starts. One of those ailments was with his quadriceps, which he said was related to a back injury. Matt Tobin took Peters' place with the first-team offense on Thursday.

For the sake of this discussion, let's remove all the emotion and smokescreen and denials and apologies from what is almost certainly about to happen with Eagles tackle Lane Johnson and simply pretend instead that he tore a muscle at practice the other day and will miss 10 weeks of the regular season. Any muscle. Pick one. If you want to say he tore the muscle doing something really, really stupid and he was a rockhead to do so, that's your prerogative. The point is the muscle is torn, and he needs surgery, and it's going to take until Nov. 28, when the Eagles host a Monday night game against the Packers, for the rehabilitation to be completed.

Sam Bradford entered the preseason enthused by a clean bill of health with full clearance for the entire exhibition schedule. Bradford started the first game of the preseason for the first time since 2013, and he stayed in for a grand total of three plays. The quick hook in last Thursday's game was the result of the Eagles offense benefiting from a short field and scoring quickly. But it gave Bradford only one pass and two handoffs to celebrate. Bradford will play more Thursday night when the Eagles play the Pittsburgh Steelers.

LAST WEEK at minicamp, Jason Peters told reporters he hadn't lost any mobility, and there's a sheriff's deputy in Louisiana right now who probably agrees. News reports indicate Peters, 31, was arrested early yesterday morning after drag racing and resisting an officer by flight, in Monroe, La. The Monroe News-Star reported that a deputy watched a white Camaro and a blue sedan take off from a traffic light at 4:45 a.m., apparently racing. (This would seem to be a clear violation of new coach Chip Kelly's request that players get 10 hours of sleep a night, by the way.)

EAGLES RUNNING back LeSean McCoy and left tackle Jason Peters were named to the All-NFL team by Pro Football Weekly /Professional Football Writers of America.

The organizations named Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers as its most valuable player and San Francisco's Jim Harbaugh as coach of the year.

The Eagles hosted free agent tackle Demetrius Bell on Saturday as they embarked on their search for a suitable replacement for the injured Jason Peters. The 27-year-old Bell arrived in the evening at the NovaCare Complex, where he met with Eagles coach Andy Reid and others. Bell was in Pittsburgh the day before and has already visited with the Packers and Cardinals. He was slated to stay overnight in Philly. If the Eagles are serious about signing Bell, they will do their best to keep him from leaving without a contract.
