Eagles coach Andy Reid addressed an assortment of injuries in a statement released by the team before practice yesterday. Some of the news was awful: Defensive end Jerome McDougle's season was apparently over before it started for the second time in his star-crossed, five-year NFL career.

" Some of the news was expected: Reid reiterated that running back Ryan Moats fractured his left ankle in Monday night's preseason loss to the Baltimore Ravens, and said that "surgery on that ankle is pending.

The wheel of misfortune has landed on Derrick Burgess once again. A separated sternum will keep the Eagles' starting right defensive end sidelined for at least the remainder of the regular season and possibly through the playoffs. Burgess suffered a rib injury during the Eagles' Nov. 28 victory over the New York Giants at the Meadowlands when he collided with cornerback Lito Sheppard. Despite Burgess' missing a couple of days of practice last week, he and the Eagles felt he was ready to return Sunday against the Green Bay Packers after tests revealed no serious problem.

Proof of that could be found on the practice fields at the NovaCare Complex during the Eagles' three-day, post-draft minicamp that came to a close yesterday. Wasn't it just yesterday that Matt McCoy moved into the starting lineup at weakside linebacker? Wasn't it just last week that Ryan Moats looked like the young running back who gave the Eagles an explosive outside threat? Wasn't it just last month that Jerome McDougle showed up as the celebrated first-round draft pick who would replace Hugh Douglas at defensive end?

Here are some of the recent No. 15s: 2011, Mike Pouncey, C, Dolphins: Started all 16 games for Miami and was arguably their best lineman. Grade: A. 2010, Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, Giants: The guy Eagles fans always think of whenever Brandon Graham's name comes up. Not good.

The Eagles' linebacker picture still isn't clear for tomorrow's game against the visiting Redskins. Neither Mark Simoneau (concussion) nor Nate Wayne (hamstring) practiced yesterday.

He is listed as probable. Simoneau may be the biggest question mark. "We'll see how he feels," coach Andy Reid said.
