Crunch Time is a compilation of notable hits, and a few misses, from Eagles training camp. BETHLEHEM — Mike Kafka and Bryce Brown botched a handoff exchange during the live period, a goal-line set.

SEATTLE - Quarterback Michael Vick and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin have both been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Seahawks, meaning Vince Young will get his third consecutive start at quarterback. Riley Cooper will likely start for Maclin, also for a third straight week. Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha made the trip to Seattle and will be a game-time decision, according to the Eagles. He played Sunday but only in a limited role in dime situations. He hyperextended his knee Thanksgiving Day and has not been able to practice in full since then.

DEMECO RYANS - A two-time Pro Bowler, Ryans was acquired to be the answer to the question that has long loomed over middle linebacker. He has the pedigree, but has to bounce back from a down season in 2011. JAMAR CHANEY - After a fast start as a rookie, Chaney had a rocky 2011, starting at the strong side and then moving to the middle early in the season. He struggled at times, and will have to move back outside with Ryans in town. BRIAN ROLLE - Rolle was probably the team's most effective linebacker last season, and showed impressive power for his size.

BETHLEHEM - The Eagles didn't really need another corner, Howie Roseman acknowledged Thursday when asked how he came to trade for Kevin Thomas from Indianapolis. But Roseman liked Thomas coming out of USC in 2010, before the Colts drafted him in the third round, and corner is one of those positions where you always look for more real players. And maybe most important, former Eagles personnel chief Ryan Grigson is the GM in Indianapolis now, and Grigson needed linebackers.

Every player the Eagles expected to attend the start of full team voluntary workouts Tuesday was present and accounted for - including Asante Samuel. It would be difficult to miss the mouthy cornerback, who is one of only three players that hasn't used the team's NovaCare Complex as home base for off-season conditioning. Samuel, though, ventured up from his South Florida camp for this week's round of what the NFL calls "organized team activities. " Next week could be a different story.

Last week I asked what was more likely, me predicting correctly 2 weeks in a row, or the Giants losing three in a row. It was a Karmic mismatch, of course. The poor Giants never had a chance after I picked them. Sorry, Eli. This week, having been painfully reminded of how good the Eagles can be, I'm back with the home team. Despite the fact that defensive coordinator Sean McDermott all but admitted he was worried yesterday, faced with a confident Tony Romo, behind a solid offensive line, commanding weapons such as Marion Barber, Felix Jones, Miles Austin and Jason Witten.

Eagles coach Andy Reid said that Brian Westbrook would play tomorrow against the Cowboys even though the running back was held out of most of practice yesterday and was listed as questionable on the team's injury report. "He has had two hard days of work," Reid said. "And really [LeSean McCoy] hasn't gotten a ton of reps. So like I've done on other Fridays, I kept Brian out and limited. " Reid said that Westbrook, who missed the Giants game on Sunday after he suffered a concussion the previous week, took almost every repetition during practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Linebacker wasn't always an annual question mark. In 1982 the Eagles sent two homegrown 'backers to the Pro Bowl: Frank LeMaster, a 1974 fourth-rounder, and Jerry Robinson, a first-round pick in 1979, the last linebacker the team has taken in the NFL's opening round. It was the only Pro Bowl appearance for either, and the next year the team began a drought at linebacker that would seem familiar to fans today. After '82 the Eagles went nine years without a linebacker in the NFL's all-star game, but they eventually broke the streak with Seth Joyner, an eighth-round pick in 1986 who would grow into one of the central pieces of Buddy Ryan's defenses.

For the second straight Tuesday, the Eagles addressed their subpar special teams by releasing a player whose roster spot appeared safe not all that long ago. Last week, it was punter Chas Henry. This week, the Eagles waived linebacker Brian Rolle, who was the starting weakside linebacker just a little more than a month ago. Rolle's role had shifted to special teams after he was demoted. After the Eagles kick-return cover team was gashed by the New York Giants on Sunday, somebody presumably had to pay. "It is what it is," Rolle said during a phone interview.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Coaches always warn players not to look at the numbers in training camp. Focus on doing your job, they tell them, and don't worry about the numbers. But that's easier said than done, particularly for a bubble player like Keenan Clayton, who doesn't need a roster or a depth chart to tell him he could find himself out of a job when the Eagles cut down to 53 players on Aug. 31. Clayton, a 6-1, 230-pound linebacker out of Oklahoma who was the first of the Eagles' three fourth-round picks in the 2010 draft, is listed as the team's No. 3 weakside linebacker behind Brian Rolle and Jamar Chaney.

BETHLEHEM — The Eagles released their first depth chart of training camp Monday, and there were no huge surprises. The biggest ripple might have been that Mat McBriar is listed as the starting punter over incumbent Chas Henry, even though McBriar acknowledged again Monday that he is still working his way back from a nerve problem that affects his plant leg. "I don't know if it's anything too official," said McBriar, 33, a two-time Pro Bowl punter...

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - DeSean Jackson injured his left ankle during Friday afternoon's practice after he was sandwiched between two safeties during seven-on-seven drills. Jackson slowly came to his feet and walked to the trainer's tent. His left ankle was wrapped and he returned to the team, although he did not play any more. When Jackson was asked how he felt while walking to his car after practice, he gave a thumbs-up. Fifteen players missed practice because of injury or illness, but most were minor pulls and spasms.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - The Eagles traded linebackers Moise Fokou and Greg Lloyd to the Colts for cornerback Kevin Thomas and a 2013 conditional seventh-round draft pick. Thomas was drafted in the third round in 2010 by Indianapolis. He missed all of 2010 with a knee injury. He started five of nine games he played for the Colts last season, recording 33 tackles and defending three passes. There were reports out of Indianapolis during the spring that the 6-foot, 192-pound Thomas could challenge for a starting spot in 2012.

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.

It's a long way until Sept. 9, but the Eagles' blurry prospects at several positions on defense became more clear after their three-day rookie minicamp. Of all the rookies, Mychal Kendricks is the most likely to be starting when the full squad gathers next Tuesday for the start of organized team activities, otherwise known as "OTAs. " Eagles coach Andy Reid wouldn't hand Kendricks the strong-side linebacker job at the conclusion of camp on Monday. But with Jamar Chaney - Kendricks' main competition - sidelined through the spring following neck surgery in January, the rookie should have an unimpeded path.
