BETHLEHEM - Yesterday might have been Kevin Kolb's sharpest day of training camp, but one throw, at least, didn't find its way to the intended target. Kolb's screen to tight end Brent Celek was picked off by exuberant rookie defensive end Brandon Graham, who pranced through the offensive players and high-stepped all the way to the end zone, though no one was actually in pursuit, and Graham could have just jogged to a halt and thrown the ball back. "That reminded me of my linebacker days" early on at Michigan, first-round pick Graham said.

SAN FRANCISCO - The Eagles continued a run of bad luck with injuries, as left tackle Jason Peters , defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley, and Trent Cole all left Sunday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers. The Eagles also played without their starting quarterback and one of their starting cornerbacks. Peters had a sprained knee and is expected to have an MRI on Monday, and Bunkley had a hyperextended left elbow. Cole had a hamstring injury. Joselio Hanson and Dimitri Patterson took on added responsibilities with Asante Samuel out with a concussion.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Kicker Alex Henery , one of the few Eagles who is expected to have a major regular-season role and played Thursday night, got off to a bad start. He missed his first field goal attempt, a 43-yarder. It was only his fourth field-goal attempt of the preseason, and it was his first miss, but it added to the question marks surrounding the man brought in to replace David Akers. Later Thursday, though, Henery rebounded by making a 49-yarder. "It was good to get him the long one at the end," said Andy Reid, who expressed confidence in the kicker.

It happens fast in the NFL. One year you're a rookie. The next year you finally get a chance to play. By the third year you're playing for your professional life. That timeline essentially sums up Joe Mays' career to this point. Of course, the Eagles linebacker hasn't made it to Year Three just yet. "They say that the average life span of an NFL player is three years," Mays said Tuesday. (It's actually 3.5 years, according to the league's players association.) "I'm going into my third year.

Here is a look at the good, the bad and the ugly from the Eagles-Colts game: So much for producing long, drawn-out drives to keep Peyton Manning and company off the field. The Eagles' offense wasted little time getting on the board. The Birds needed only three plays and 1 minute, 46 seconds to jump out to a 7-0 lead. LeSean McCoy did the bulk of the work, zig-zagging his way for a 62-yard run on the game's first play from scrimmage. Two plays later, Michael Vick hit DeSean Jackson on a slant for a 9-yard score and a perfect start.

The Eagles' defense has prepared for the Redskins' running game by looking back. The unit's early-season struggles against the run hit bottom against Washington in Week 4, when the Birds allowed 169 rushing yards and 4.8 yards per carry - both season highs - and couldn't stop the Redskins late in the game as they chewed up the clock. The Eagles have reviewed that game tape, with defensive coordinator Sean McDermott pointing out group and individual mistakes, several players said.

Dion Lewis was involved in a car accident that forced the Eagles running back to miss Sunday night's game against the Cowboys. The rookie was not seriously injured, the team said, but Lewis was shaken up enough that the Eagles decided not to dress him. Ronnie Brown , who returned to the Eagles two weeks after a trade with the Lions was voided, took Lewis' place returning kicks. Lewis was at Lincoln Financial Field but watched the game from the sideline in street clothes.
