Running back Ryan Mathews left the Eagles' 20-19 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday with a concussion. Mathews' last play was a rush for no gain in the third quarter. He finished with eight carries for 18 yards and a touchdown. He also had two catches for 22 yards. Mathews and quarterback Sam Bradford were the two players injured in the loss. Wide receiver Jordan Matthews needed attention from the trainers in the fourth quarter, but he only had the wind knocked out of him. Peters sits out again Left tackle Jason Peters missed his second consecutive game with a back injury that is affecting his quadriceps.

DeMarco Murray hit the ground running in 2014 for Dallas, setting an NFL record by gaining at least 100 yards in each of the first eight Cowboys games. With the Eagles, however, Murray merely hit the ground when the season began, gaining a total of 11 yards on 21 carries as the team belly-flopped into the schedule by losing two straight. Among the many mysteries that remain unsolved regarding the Eagles' unexpectedly poor start - even as they have evened their record at the halfway mark - the difference between Murray a year ago and Murray this time around is one of the most confounding.

When the Eagles have the ball This matchup appears ideal for the Eagles' rushing offense. The Dolphins allow 142.1 rushing yards per game, second most in the NFL. They surrendered 266 rushing yards last week to Buffalo, including two 100-yard rushers. The Eagles could go for that feat with DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, who have combined to give the Eagles a potent backfield in recent weeks. The Eagles have averaged 173.3 rushing yards over the last four games. With left tackle Jason Peters questionable entering the game, the Eagles lineup on the offensive line is still undetermined.

THERE IS NO question Dennis Kelly had the physical attributes to get to the NFL. But what's kept him there, despite numerous obstacles, is some good, old Chicago toughness. At 6-8, 321 pounds, Kelly is the Swiss army knife for the Eagles' offensive line. A left tackle in college, Kelly, in his four seasons with the Eagles, has made two starts at left guard, four starts at right guard and, Sunday night, his ninth start at right tackle. "Being humble enough to do whatever the coach wants us to do is a (common)

Eagles left tackle Jason Peters was a limited participant in practice on Thursday with a back injury that is affecting his quadriceps, and his status for the game Sunday against the Miami Dolphins remains a question. "He looked good," coach Chip Kelly said. "He didn't go through the full practice, but he looked good in the reps he took. He took reps in team and in all three team periods today. " Peters missed the game Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. If he doesn't play, the Eagles are expected to keep their same lineup, with Lane Johnson at left tackle.

JASON PETERS says it's actually his quad that hurts - because of a pinched nerve in his back. But Peters said he felt good Wednesday, as a limited participant in Eagles practice. Will he play Sunday against visiting Miami? Well, at one point in a discussion with reporters, Peters listed his chances at 50-50, and said it depended on what coaches decide. Later, he said that if "I had to make a decision today, I'd tell coach I'd play. But it's going to be up to him, and how I feel. " So, not a whole lotta clarity there.

THE EAGLES have not been good at third-down conversions this season; they rank 29th in the NFL, at 31 percent. Fans were beyond frustrated early in Sunday night's game at Dallas, when the Birds completed four successive third-down passes - three of which did not result in first downs. "That's kinda why you want to stay out of those third-and-8s, third-and-9s," tight end Zach Ertz said. "First down usually sets you up for where you're going to be on third down. If you have a positive play on first down, usually you're going to be third-and-5, and you have to check it down, there's going to be an ability to get that first down.

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins missed practice Wednesday for the second straight day because of a concussion he suffered Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys, the team said. Jenkins was going through the league-mandated concussion protocol and was in uniform doing strength and conditioning work on the side during practice. If Jenkins is out for the Eagles' game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, the team would likely turn to Chris Maragos at safety. But coach Chip Kelly did not sound as if he's expecting Jenkins to miss the game.

Some sour ingredients had been mixed together in the days leading up to the Eagles' showdown with the Dallas Cowboys. Combine the absence of the Eagles' seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle, Jason Peters (back injury), with the presence of Dallas defensive end Greg Hardy and the assumption was that quarterback Sam Bradford would be pulling himself off the turf quite a bit and that yards and points would be difficult to accumulate. It seemed logical. The Eagles managed only 226 yards and 10 points at home in a Week 2 loss to the Cowboys, and that was with Peters playing and without Hardy and two other Dallas defensive starters on the field.

The Eagles practiced Tuesday without left tackle Jason Peters, linebacker DeMeco Ryans, and safeties Malcolm Jenkins and Jerome Couplin. Wide receivers Nelson Agholor and Riley Cooper both practiced despite recent injuries. Peters is still recovering from a back injury that sidelined him Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. Peters watched the offensive line drills during the portion of practice open to reporters. The Eagles kept the same alignment from the game on Sunday, with Lane Johnson at left tackle and Dennis Kelly at right tackle.
