LeSean McCoy made thousands - millions? - of Eagles fans ecstatic when he said Thursday that the Eagles plan to run the ball more against the Green Bay Packers. It remains to be seen what coach Andy Reid thinks of his running back's divulgence. Of course, McCoy's candidness could just be part of the cat-and-mouse games opposing teams play against each other before a big showdown. "I think so," McCoy said when asked if the pass-oriented Eagles intended to rush the ball more.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is just one player on a defense that has been truly wretched this season. So there have been plenty of targets at which to sling arrows. Still, you have to wonder if the absence of the cornerback, who was out with a high ankle sprain, had anything to do with the strong outing by the defense in the first half Sunday night? With Joselio Hanson taking Rodgers-Cromartie's spot as the fifth cornerback, the Giants pass offense sputtered.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Mike Patterson, who underwent brain surgery six months ago, will not participate in Eagles training camp and could need a couple of months - possibly more - before he is cleared to practice, the team said. "We're talking about this preseason as a month, then we'll probably reevaluate there," Eagles head trainer Rick Burkholder said. "But it could be a couple of months or more. We don't know. " The Eagles had anticipated Patterson's return at the start of camp, which began Sunday with the arrival of rookies and selected veterans at Lehigh University.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Charges against Eagles running back Dion Lewis after he and his older brother, Lamar, allegedly pulled a fire alarm at an Albany, N.Y., hotel will be dismissed in six months as long as both remain out of trouble. Lewis' attorney, Craig Crist, who was in Albany for the court hearing Monday with his client, confirmed the pending dismissal. The Lewises were charged with felony counts for falsely reporting a fire and misdemeanor counts for resisting arrest. Lewis, 21, and his brother, Lamar, 35, were arrested July 8 after police said they tried to knock down the glass doors of the lobby at a Hampton Inn, and then pulled an alarm after they were not permitted entry by hotel security.

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told the Daily News he did not tell anyone from CBS that he actually had three broken ribs, and not the torn rib cartilage the Eagles announced after Vick was sandwiched between two Redskins defenders Oct. 3. During yesterday's broadcast, announcer Jim Nantz said Vick gave that account of the injury during a Saturday conversation. "I never said that," Vick said following his postgame news conference. In the long run, it might not matter much - torn rib cartilage is a pretty big deal, no less signficant than broken ribs.

Safety Nate Allen, the rookie who has started every Eagles game this season, has a neck sprain and will likely miss the team's game at Washington Monday. "It looks like he's going to struggle to make it for this week, but we'll see how he progresses," coach Andy Reid said. If Allen is out he'll likely be replaced by fellow rookie Kurt Coleman, a seventh-round draft pick who had his most extensive showing of the season Sunday after Allen got hurt. The team has just three safeties on the roster - Allen, Coleman and Quintin Mikell - so if Allen can't play, they would be thin in that area.

On a night when Sean McDermott's pass defense didn't allow a touchdown for the first time since Week 3, the Eagles' secondary still had significant issues in a 24-14 loss to Minnesota on Tuesday night. Cornerback Dimitri Patterson appeared to have the biggest problem covering Vikings receivers and defending against rookie quarterback Joe Webb's passes. A second-half benching in which Joselio Hanson took his place suggested as much. Eagles coach Andy Reid did not have an answer Wednesday as to whether Patterson had lost his job permanently, but there's ample reason to speculate that a change will be made.

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.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Brandon Boykin and Damaris Johnson have the early edge as the Eagles' punt and kick returners, coach Andy Reid said Friday. "Obviously we brought Boykin in to do that, so he's right there at both kick and punt," Reid said. "We know he can do both. He does have more kickoff than he does punt. Johnson has done it, so we're kind of leaving him in there right now as the primary punt guy. " The Eagles drafted Boykin in the fourth round out of Georgia. Johnson is an undrafted rookie from Tulsa.
