Ellis Hobbs isn't retiring just yet, and Winston Justice's left knee cleanout apparently did not indicate a need for career-threatening microfracture surgery. Those were the major nondevelopments of the day in Eagles Nation. There has been speculation about Hobbs' possible retirement since the 27-year-old corner and kick returner suffered his second serious neck-disc injury in as many seasons, on a kickoff return against the Giants Nov. 21. That setback ended his season after eight games, the exact number of times Hobbs took the field in 2009 before injuring his neck and requiring surgery.

Free agency allows some teams to alter their rosters and most fans to dream big. The Eagles, after last season's splurge, aren't expected to fulfill the musings of those who want another spending spree in free agency. Most Birds fans, it seems, are fine with this considering how poorly the Eagles spent their allowance last summer. The hope is that the Eagles will target linebacker and perhaps a few other positions of less significance when scouring through the lists of free agents from other teams.

SAN FRANCISCO - With questions about their run defense and their offensive line, the Eagles certainly did not need any additional injuries. On the 49ers' first drive last night, the Eagles lost defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley to a left elbow injury. Bunkley's arm was pulled back behind him when he was trying to make a tackle. Bunkley was replaced by Antonio Dixon. Late in the first half, Trent Cole left the game with a hamstring problem and headed to the locker room. Juqua Parker, who regained his starting spot at left end from Brandon Graham, replaced him on the right side.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - There they were yesterday, sitting pretty on the Tennessee 3-yard line with a little less than 6 minutes left in the third quarter. There they were, 3 yards from a touchdown that would have given them a 23-7 lead and put them well on their way to their fifth win of the season and a very satisfying bye-week vacation. And then, just like that, it all went to hell. In the time it took Titans defensive tackle Jason Jones to blow by center Mike McGlynn and slap a would-be handoff to LeSean McCoy out of quarterback Kevin Kolb's hand, momentum shifted.

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.

As Andy Reid read the names, it seemed as if the Eagles coach was reciting his starting team. Twelve players will not make the trip to Indianapolis for tomorrow's preseason game against the Colts. Of the 12, 11 are injured. Of those 11, four of them are projected starters on the offensive line. All four linemen could be ready to start when the season opens in less than four weeks, but there is no definite timetable for the return of guards Todd Herremans and Stacy Andrews and tackles Jason Peters and Shawn Andrews.

The Eagles set a franchise record for points a year ago and still focused the majority of their attention in the off-season on an offensive makeover. At least during the Lehigh University portion of training camp, the alterations have not been all that pretty. It's well-documented that the Eagles have had all sorts of problems getting their projected starting offensive line on the field, but the source of offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg's frustration goes beyond that part of things.

King Dunlap's baptism came by fire - and its name was Dwight Freeney. The Eagles' fill-in left tackle, starting his first NFL game of any kind, was pitted against the Indianapolis Colts' all-time sack leader in the Birds' 23-15 loss last night at Lucas Oil Field. It took Freeney, a four-time Pro Bowl defensive end, one play to exploit Dunlap, a third-stringer stepping in for the injured and projected starter, Jason Peters. After a sack forced a Colts fumble, the Eagles took over on the Indianapolis 24-yard line.

For seven offensive plays, King Dunlap handled his business with the anonymity an offensive lineman prefers, taking care of Colts defensive end Josh Thomas without incident. Then came play No. 8. On a third-and-4 from the Colts' 13-yard line, All-Pro defensive end Dwight Freeney lined up across from the second-year pro making his debut as the Eagles' left offensive tackle. Freeney charged and spun. Dunlap flailed. Freeney sacked Donovan McNabb and forced a fumble, recovered by Colts defensive end Keyunta Dawson.

NASHVILLE - The penalties were back. After three weeks when the Eagles committed five or fewer penalties, they were flagged 10 times for 100 yards Sunday. The 10 tied a season high. The yardage was the most surrendered this year. The situations, not just the numbers, made the infractions costly. A roughing-the-passer call on Juqua Parker in the second quarter kept a Titans drive alive after it looked like the defense had made a stop on third down. Tennessee would score a touchdown three plays later.
