Reggie Brown played with the first team offense in place of DeSean Jackson, who sat out the morning session. On the first play of No. 1 offense vs. No. 1 defense, Sheldon Brown stepped in front of Reggie Brown to knock down a Donovan McNabb slant throw. Soon after, McNabb beat a blitz with a nice slant to Kevin Curtis. Leonard Weaver lamented aloud how he was "wide open" on a play and wasn't seen. Linebacker Omar Gaither, the nearest defender to Weaver, quipped: "If he didn't throw it to you, how is it you were open?"

What we're talking about following the Eagles' 13-9 loss to the Oakland Raiders. The sacks: Yes, left tackle Jason Peters went down early with a knee injury and Andy Reid had to put green second-year man King Dunlap in front of All-Pro Richard Seymour. Still, giving up six sacks to a team that had a total of nine in the first five games is inexcusable. Trotter's problems: The middle linebacker's lack of speed hurt the Eagles badly. The Raiders threw at him when he was on the field and he got beat by tight end Zach Miller on his 86-yard touchdown catch-and-run.

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 Eagles have converted just nine of 29 third-down tries with Kolb at QB. Falcons Matt Ryan has a strong, accurate arm and enough mobility to get outside the pocket and extend plays.

Brandon Graham notched his first sack of the season in his hometown, bringing down Shaun Hill on the Lions' opening drive. Quintin Mikell, at 5-foot-10, broke up a deep lob to 6-5 Calvin Johnson to force a Detroit punt late in the first half. Michael Vick's late first-half throw to DeSean Jackson traveled in the air from the Eagles' 21 to about the Lions' 22. That's how you go 89 yards in 59 seconds. LeSean McCoy showed he can break off the big run - a 46-yarder - if he gets the ball enough and a sliver of daylight.

Andy Reid confirmed that DeSean Jackson will play Sunday against the Colts barring a post-concussion setback. "I always leave that open when you're dealing with concussions," the Eagles coach said on Friday. "But he had a great practice, and he's been feeling well and ready to roll. " The Eagles wide receiver was listed as probable on the official injury report. While Jackson's status was not much of a surprise, Reid's saying that Jackson will return punts was. The receiver's concussion did not happen during a return, but he missed parts of the 49ers game after he injured his knee fielding a punt.

Andy Reid was just playing with the possibilities when he talked about moving Todd Herremans to right tackle following the acquisition of guard Danny Watkins in the first round of the NFL draft last week. That was what emerged from dogged questioning of Reid on Mike Missanelli's 97.5-FM radio show yesterday. Initially, when asked about moving the left guard, Reid said: "We do have some flexibility there," but when Missanelli pressed, wanting to know whether that indeed was the plan, Reid finally said, "That's probably not going to happen.
