Eagles guard Danny Watkins practiced this week despite what the team has called a chronic ankle injury, but he still is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. Dennis Kelly, who has started three games at right guard in place of Watkins, practiced at right tackle this week. If Watkins cannot play or must leave the game, the Eagles have the option of veteran guard Jake Scott, who signed with the team on Monday.   McNutt as RGIII To prepare for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III this week, the Eagles used practice squad wide receiver Marvin McNutt at quarterback.

The coaches and players at Rutgers will not concede that today's season opener with Cincinnati is more important than any other game. But it could be. If the Scarlet Knights hope to reach the next level and get to a BCS bowl, they cannot afford another 0-3 (and 1-5) start, which happened last year en route to an 8-5 finish. Beating the defending Big East champion would establish a positive tone for the season from the outset. Still, coach Greg Schiano said there was no added emphasis in preparing for today's 4 p.m. kickoff.

LANDOVER, Md. - LeSean McCoy sustained a concussion in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 31-6 loss to the Redskins on Sunday. The Eagles trailed by 25 points after the two-minute warning when a running play was called for McCoy. After the game, coach Andy Reid defended keeping McCoy in the game despite the lopsided score. "We were trying to catch up and win the game," Reid said. McCoy appeared woozy in the locker room. There likely will be more information on his status on Monday.

Eagles guard Danny Watkins might return this week after missing the last three games with an ankle injury. Coach Andy Reid said Watkins is "making progress" and "there's a chance" Watkins could practice this week. That is more encouraging than Reid's description of the injury during the last few weeks. If Watkins returns, Reid might shuffle a struggling offensive line. Dennis Kelly has started in place of Watkins, although Kelly is a natural tackle who could replace King Dunlap at right tackle.

For anyone who remembers his college exploits, it has been strange to see Mardy Gilyard in Philadelphia, toiling near the bottom of the Eagles' preseason roster. Three years removed from a standout career at Cincinnati, after which the Rams drafted him in the fourth round, Gilyard is already with his third NFL team and struggling at the league's margins. No one wanted him on their roster last season. With the Eagles, he is stuck near the back of the pack of a deep group of young receivers and returners fighting for roster spots.

Fletcher Cox was ejected Sunday for throwing a punch in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 26-23 loss to the Detroit Lions. The rookie defensive tackle was escorted off the field after he was penalized for unnecessary roughness on an extra point with 10 minutes, 29 seconds remaining in regulation. "I have to control myself," Cox said "I have to control my anger and I have to do better. I can't afford to do that in games like that. I made a mistake and the mistake cost us. " Cox was at the bottom of the pile.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Chad Hall knew he was going to take a big hit before he released from the line of scrimmage. Or at least he knew he was supposed to take a big hit. The Eagles were in full pads Saturday for their first practice after Thursday night's preseason game, but during the 11-on-11 scrimmage, they weren't supposed to tackle. Hall was running a streak route against a Cover 2 defense with the safety crashing down. Plays like that are all about the timing and the catch. The wide receiver will be open, but once he touches the ball that gets floated over the cornerback, the safety usually drills him. Saturday, the pass from Mike Kafka floated in over the linebackers and cornerback.

THE PLAY THAT really brought the Detroit Lions back to life, four snaps after Jeremy Maclin gave the Eagles a 23-13 lead, was a 57-yard Matthew Stafford pass to tight end Tony Scheffler. "I think it was just an extended play," said dime corner Brandon Hughes, who was covering Scheffler. "[Stafford] just got outside the pocket, and Scheffler was running 'seam.' I was just chasing him. He just ran at an angle [after the called play broke down]. I just tried to haul ass and catch him. Couldn't catch him. "Initially, it was good coverage.

Here are some observations and ruminations about the Eagles-Lions game: Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha spent much of the first three quarters shadowing Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, and his coverage worked. It was perhaps the finest game Asomugha has played in an Eagles uniform and included an interception and drawing an offensive pass-interference call in the end zone. The 6-foot-5, 236-pound Johnson had only one catch after three quarters, although "Megatron" finished with five catches for 107 yards the rest of the way. Asomugha said the Eagles altered their coverage in the fourth quarter, and the Lions also started throwing the ball to Johnson regardless of coverage.

No. 5 Cincinnati trailed No. 14 Pittsburgh by 21 points late in the first half, a perfect season and BCS bowl berth in peril. Teammate after teammate came up to wide receiver Mardy Gilyard asking for a big play. He listened, silently whispered a prayer, then relied on his speed and can't-tackle-me attitude to change the momentum in a game the Bearcats led only once - at the end. Tony Pike's 29-yard touchdown pass to Armon Binns with 33 seconds left capped a comeback from a three-TD deficit as the Bearcats (12-0, 7-0)

The Eagles confirmed what many had thought when they selected Temple's Jaiquawn Jarrett in the second round of the 2011 draft: He was a reach. Jarrett was released to make room for Mardy Gilyard, who the Eagles signed Tuesday to bolster a wide receiver corps that is already down one and possibly two if Jeremy Maclin can't play Sunday against the Ravens. Gilyard spent all of the preseason with the Eagles but was released on Aug. 31 when the roster was trimmed to 53. Jarrett appeared in jeopardy of getting cut that day as well after struggling through the preseason.
