Eagles tackle Jason Peters did not participate in Wednesday's practice because of a shoulder injury, and quarterback Michael Vick was limited as he continued to recover from a pulled hamstring. Coach Chip Kelly said Monday that he expected Peters to return Wednesday, so the injury might be more of a nuisance than initially believed. When asked about Peters' status before practice, Kelly said he expected Peters to be limited. Peters, the starting left tackle, briefly left Sunday's victory over Tampa Bay before returning.

Three Eagles have shoulder injuries that are likely to keep them from being full participants in Tuesday's practice: left tackle Jason Peters, safety Patrick Chung, and running back Chris Polk. Peters briefly left Sunday's 31-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before returning. Chung and Polk left and did not return. Coach Chip Kelly did not sound concerned Monday about Peters' injury, suggesting that the tackle would be fully participating in practice by Wednesday. Kelly was uncertain about Chung and Polk's injuries.

TAMPA, Fla. - The Eagles held an eight-point lead late in the fourth quarter when they had fourth and 1 from the Buccaneers' 17-yard line. Instead of sending his field-goal unit onto the field, coach Chip Kelly kept his offense out for the fourth down. The ball was snapped and Foles had appeared to be sacked, but a flag was thrown before the play. And that was exactly Kelly's plan. "We were just trying to draw them offsides, and it worked," Kelly said. "We were going to kick a field goal in that situation, you want to make it a two-score game, but if we could extend the clock a bit . . . " The Eagles took the 5-yard penalty, had a new set of downs, and ran three more plays while making Tampa Bay use all its timeouts.

TAMPA, Fla. - LeSean McCoy struggled rushing the ball when Nick Foles entered the game last week, but he had no issues in Sunday's 31-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. McCoy rushed for 116 yards on 25 carries, helping balance the offense. This came one week after he was limited to minus-2 yards on eight carries while playing alongside Foles against the New York Giants. McCoy downplayed the dramatic difference from one week to the next. "I feel like everybody wants us to run the ball for so many yards like the first game," McCoy said.

"I do know this - and we've got to address it - we have to protect [Michael Vick] better. We've got times where he is at the top of his drop and he is sticking his foot into the ground and there's pressure on him. That's not on Mike. " - Chip Kelly, after Eagles' 52-20 loss to the Broncos THE EAGLES' offensive line was supposed to be one of the team's greatest strengths this season. With the return to health of All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters (ruptured Achilles')

LeSean McCoy suffered a sprained right ankle last Thursday in the loss to Kansas City, but the Eagles running back says the swelling is gone and he has practiced without issue. McCoy is not listed on the injury report - a positive sign for the NFL's leading rusher. "It's a little sore, but I've done tons of treatment, so I feel a lot better," McCoy said. McCoy was worried during the game that he had broken his ankle. He said it felt just as it did when he suffered that injury in high school.

YOU HAD AN inkling, but you couldn't tell. When the Reid regime ended and the Roseman era begun, there was no way to forecast what Howie's Heroes would be. Was new Eagles coach Chip Kelly as smart as he seemed? Could the offensive players, particularly the line, handle Kelly's collegiate pace? Would Michael Vick re-reinvent himself? Should running back LeSean McCoy be an MVP candidate in the Machine Gun Kelly scheme? Did the defense have any viable personnel?

THE EAGLES' offensive line is supposed to be one of the team's strengths. But the unit played poorly in Thursday night's 26-16 loss to the Chiefs. While the line did a good job run-blocking for LeSean McCoy, who had another productive game, rushing for 158 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries, it did a poor job protecting quarterback Michael Vick, who was sacked five times. Center Jason Kelce had a pair of bad snaps, including one that resulted in a turnover. And the line committed four penalties, including a costly holding call on right guard Todd Herremans that negated a 19-yard Vick completion to tight end Zach Ertz with less than 3 minutes left in the game.

LANDOVER, Md. - LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson, the Eagles' top two offensive skill-position players, played to their big contracts in Monday's 33-27 win over the Washington Redskins. Coach Chip Kelly's offense was intended to highlight the two players after both had down years in 2012, but the way they looked Monday was even beyond an optimist's imagination. The Redskins had no answer for either player. Jackson topped 100 receiving yards by halftime, while McCoy had already topped 100 rushing yards by then.

The value of Jason Peters is most realized when he's not in the lineup. Without their Pro Bowl left tackle throughout the 2012 season, the Eagles lost 12 games and allowed 48 sacks. They were never able to adequately replace him. Peters will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars for the first time since he twice ruptured his right Achilles tendon during the 2012 offseason. He said he would play three quarters, and he's had no issues this week from the right-hamstring injury that kept him out of the first two preseason games.
