THE NFL FINED Eagles left tackle Jason Peters $10,000 for "unnecessarily striking an opponent in the head area after the play was over" in the game against the Redskins, the league confirmed yesterday. Washington's Chris Baker, whom Peters went after in the wake of the defensive lineman's blindside hit on Nick Foles, was fined $8,268 for grabbing an opponent's facemask. Baker was not fined for his questionable hit on Foles, a hotly debated topic in Philadelphia all week. Troy Vincent, the NFL's executive vice president of football operations, told the Washington Post on Tuesday that the hit was legal.

Jason Peters was fined $10,000 for his involvement in the fight that followed Redskins nose tackle Chris Baker's blocking Eagles quarterback Nick Foles to the ground in Sunday's game. Peters' fine was for unnecessarily striking an opponent in the head area after the play was over, according to the NFL office. While the league ruled that Baker's hit was legal and that he would receive no further discipline, he was fined $8,268 for grabbing an opponent by the face mask. Both Peters and Baker were ejected from the game.

The NFL's determination that Washington defensive lineman Chris Baker's hit on Nick Foles was legal left the Eagles confused on Wednesday. "I'm still under the impression you can't blindside a player, whether it's a quarterback or not a quarterback going back toward your own sideline," coach Chip Kelly said. "So I'll touch base with the league officials before we play again. That's news to me that that's a legal hit. " Former Eagles defensive back Troy Vincent, the NFL's vice president of football operations, explained on his Twitter account that a quarterback cannot be blocked at the head/neck area after change of possession, and that the contact on Sunday was not with the head or neck.

WE ARE about to find out just how good Chip Kelly really is. We are about to find out if he can find a way to win without his most valuable offensive weapon. No, nothing has happened to LeSean McCoy or Nick Foles or Jason Peters. While all of them obviously are important cogs in the offense, none of them is as irreplaceable as Jason Kelce. Kelce had surgery Tuesday to repair a sports hernia. Depending on just how serious the damage, he figures to miss between five and seven games.

IT COMES DOWN to this: To embrace the NFL's ruling that Washington's Chris Baker "did nothing wrong" in his blindside flattening of Nick Foles on Sunday, you have to embrace the idea that Foles was trying to tackle Bashaud Breeland when Baker hit him. That was the stance taken by NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent, in one of a trio of tweets aimed at explaining his rationale yesterday afternoon. On Tuesday, Vincent told the Washington Post that Baker should not have been penalized for the hit that started a brawl and led to the ejections of Baker and Eagles tackle Jason Peters.

AS THE Eagles' left tackle, Jason Peters is charged with protecting Nick Foles' blind side. It's a task that the six-time Pro Bowler and two-time first-team All Pro usually performs better than any other left tackle in the business. But sometimes, stuff happens. Stuff happened Sunday with 10:07 left in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 37-34 win over the Redskins. It started with that errant pass by Foles that sailed over the head of tight end Brent Celek and into the arms of Redskins rookie cornerback Bashaud Breeland.

Jason Peters slipped on sweatpants and a tarpaulin-size green T-shirt Tuesday, then turned to face the group of reporters who had gathered at his locker. Next to him, DeMeco Ryans had dressed and was stepping away from the scrum, making for the door, as he said to Peters, "Got to answer the question, buddy. " Peters did. He'll forever be a folk hero around here for what he did Sunday, for seeing Washington nose tackle Chris Baker flatten Nick Foles with a gratuitous blindside hit to the ribs and for reacting as he did: chugging 10 yards to Baker and sending a right hand toward his head.

Eagles center Jason Kelce needs surgery for a sports hernia, coach Chip Kelly confirmed on Monday. Although Kelly did not offer a timetable for Kelce's return, the injury typically keeps a player out up to two months. Kelce left Sunday's 37-34 win over Washington in the third quarter. "I don't have a level of concern," Kelly said. "Just tell us who we've got that is available to play, and let's go play. " Backup center David Molk will likely start in Kelce's place, although Kelly did not have concrete plans on Monday.

THIS DEFIES BELIEF. Eagles players keep reciting a tiresome refrain about "Next Man Up," and, given the militaristic nature of the NFL, distilling remarkable feats into a nonsensical chant follows the logic of the league. Wade Smith, however, has not been in green long enough to be completely brainwashed. In his 12th NFL season, Smith realizes what the Eagles have done in the first 3 weeks is amazing. In the first three games of the season, they have played nine offensive linemen, and played them extensively.

One of Chip Kelly's favorite sayings is that he wants his players to play with emotion, but not let emotion play with them. He'll probably be reminding Jason Peters of that pretty soon. "I'm sure I'll talk to him tomorrow and face the consequences then," Peters said. The left tackle was ejected in the fourth quarter Sunday when he retaliated against Washington nose tackle Chris Baker for a block that blindsided quarterback Nick Foles as the teams reacted to an apparent interception.
