Winston Justice said playing right tackle is like riding a bicycle. Since he last played there, though, the Eagles have replaced a mountain bike with a racing model. And with a knee that's still less than 100 percent, it's unclear whether Justice can even get back on the bike. Questions about Justice's ability to return to tackle were prompted by King Dunlap's recent spate of back spasms. Dunlap started at left tackle last week for the injured Jason Peters and was slated to fill that spot again Sunday at Washington.

The Eagles announced yesterday they have agreed to terms with three of their 2008 draft picks - cornerback Jack Ikegwuonu, linebacker Joe Mays, and offensive tackle King Dunlap. The Eagles now have seven of their 10 picks in the most recent draft under contract. Ikegwuonu, selected in the fourth round after completing his junior season at Wisconsin, is expected to sit out the 2008 season after suffering a right-knee injury during workouts in preparation for the NFL combine.

BREAKING down the Eagles' 20-13 win over the Redskins on Sunday:   Spotlight on Herremans Seven-year veteran Todd Herremans made just the sixth start of his career at left tackle because of injuries to Jason Peters and King Dunlap. As with his earlier move from left guard to right tackle, he made a seamless transition.   Run defense The Eagles didn't abandon the wide nine, but they used it less, particularly on first down, when they lined up in a tighter, more traditional, four-man front, and also moved their linebackers closer to the line of scrimmage.

LES BOWEN Not a lot of hesitation here for me. Don't like King Dunlap vs. John Abraham. Can't imagine Michael Vick can really play effectively this soon after his injury. Overall, the Eagles have done very little to make me want to pick them over a 4-1 team. You can question how legit the Falcons are, given the teams they've beaten, but this year you can do that with anybody, certainly including the Eagles. If I were inclined to pick the Eagles, I might lean on the fact that they have to win a home game sooner or later, or that Andy Reid is 7-1 against Atlanta.

He came, he saw, he left without a contract. Demetrius Bell was still a free agent when he departed Philadelphia after visiting with the Eagles over the weekend. The left tackle has met with four teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals, and Green Bay Packers, since the start of free agency last month. But he remains on the market even though the Eagles were scrambling to find a starting left tackle after Jason Peters suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon last week.

What we're talking about after the Eagles' 27-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers last night: Who's the starting QB? Kevin Kolb turned in an impressive performance against the Niners, completing 21 of 31 passes for 253 yards. If Michael Vick can play next week, will he start? Another big day for Shady: Playing with a fractured rib, LeSean McCoy rushed for 92 yards and had a 29-yard touchdown run. He also had five catches for 46 yards. Better against the run: After giving up 169 rushing yards to the Redskins last week, Sean McDermott's defense did a much better job against the run last night, holding Frank Gore to 2.9 yards per carry.

San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers comes into Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday with King Dunlap protecting his blind side from the left tackle position and a rookie holding down the edge on the right side. In between those two guys, the Chargers have a solid but aging center, and one guard who is a 320-pound converted tackle playing the position for the first time, and the other who is a journeyman now with his third organization in six seasons. Rivers, with a reputation for staying in the pocket and holding the ball to a fault, was sacked 49 times last season, second-most in the NFL. San Diego replaced three of its offensive line starters in the offseason, and if Dunlap represents an improvement, that gives you an idea how bad things were.

TWO YEARS AGO, before he ruptured his right Achilles' tendon twice in a 7-week period, Jason Peters was the best left tackle in the NFL. You can debate who might've been the best quarterback or the best running back or best wide receiver or the best pass-rusher in the league in 2011. But there's no debate about who was the best left tackle. There was Peters and then there was everybody else. He was that good. An athletic freak with running-back feet inside a massive 6-4, 340-pound body.

Despite rupturing his right Achilles tendon twice within a month last spring, Jason Peters said on Tuesday that he could have played late last season and that he anticipated playing near his all-pro form from 2011 for the Eagles this coming season. The left tackle met with reporters not long after he went through new Eagles coach Chip Kelly's first workout of the offseason. It was the first time Peters formally spoke with the media since his injury last March. He said that he knew Dec. 1, shortly after the Eagles shut him down for the season, that he was healthy enough to play.

The increasing number of questions about Jason Peters' return is all one needs to know about the state of the Eagles' left tackle situation and the offensive line in general. On the day he officially announced King Dunlap's return to the starting lineup, Eagles coach Andy Reid fielded as many questions about Peters as he did his current left tackle. "There's a chance," Reid said of the injured Peters' playing this season. The fact is that Reid won't have to worry about a Peters return if Dunlap or the rest of the offensive line can't improve enough for the Eagles to have a realistic shot at the playoffs by the time Peters is eligible to play.

Despite indications from Eagles players after Monday's practice that the offensive line would remain intact, a source close to the situation said later in the evening that King Dunlap was back starting at left tackle ahead of Demetress Bell. When Andy Reid said last Tuesday after firing defensive coordinator Juan Castillo that he had more moves to make, the offensive line was considered the most likely to undergo change. Center Dallas Reynolds, right guard Danny Watkins and Bell all seemed to be in jeopardy of losing their jobs after struggling against the Lions.

Left tackle King Dunlap is expected to return to practice on Wednesday. Demetress Bell has filled in for Dunlap the last two weeks with uneven results while Dunlap recovered from a hamstring injury. Dunlap beat Bell for the job out of training camp. Eagles coach Andy Reid would not commit on Monday when asked if Dunlap will be the starter on his return. "He's getting better, so we'll just see how he is," Reid said. "I want to see him out there, see what he can do, first. " The Eagles escaped Sunday's 19-17 win over the New York Giants without any major injuries.

Eagles coach Andy Reid answered questions Monday from fans during a philly.com chat hosted by Inquirer staff writer Jeff McLane. Here are some of the highlights: Bob B.: We're hearing that Nick Foles has a great arm but will be a project. Does he have the potential to be a starting quarterback over time? Reid: Every quarterback is some form of a project coming into the NFL. Nick has the talent to be a starter in the NFL. We're not far enough into this, though.

IF THE EAGLES lost Michael Vick to injury in the offseason, the alarm would be deafening. The fringy residents of Eagle Nation would hyperventilate if LeSean McCoy tore a chest muscle lifting weights. If DeSean Jackson's right knee buckled at the beach, or if Trent Cole dislocated his shoulder falling out of a tree stand, or if those Pamplonan bulls outrun Jason Babin, the Bleeding Green might slit their wrists. There should be at least as much anxiety surrounding the absence of Jason Peters.

Andy Reid offered a non-update on Jason Peters' condition, saying Monday morning that the Eagles tackle was out "indefinitely. " It was unclear later in the day whether the Eagles coach knew that Peters had re-ruptured his Achilles tendon, although it is likely he did since the five-time Pro Bowler once again needed surgery. But it is safe to say after this latest setback that Peters is definitely out for the 2012 season. The Eagles confirmed the injury Monday evening after Comcast SportsNet first reported that Peters re-ruptured his Achilles when the Roll-A-Bout machine he was using malfunctioned.

The Eagles have signed tackle Thomas Welch off waivers from the St. Louis Rams. Welch, 24, played in eight games last season, five with the Rams and three with the New England Patriots. His only start was as an extra tight end for New England. Welch was originally a Patriots seventh-round pick in 2010, but he spent most of that year on the Vikings' practice squad. Welch joins King Dunlap, D.J. Jones, and fifth-round pick Dennis Kelly as the team's backup tackles heading into offseason practices.
