EAGLES LEFT TACKLE Jason Peters said he is ready to return and expects to play Sunday night against Dallas. Peters missed the last two games with a hamstring injury. He was back on the practice field Monday for the Eagles' abbreviated session. "I'm going to rock," Peters said on the team website yesterday. "Sunday, I'll be out there. " Peters was not available Monday when reporters were allowed access to the locker room. Fellow linemen said Monday the first-team o-line was Peters, left guard Evan Mathis, center Jason Kelce, right guard Danny Watkins and right tackle Todd Herremans.

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 it was: Nick Barnett's fourth-quarter interception of a Michael Vick-to-Jason Avant pass at Bills' 26. The Set-Up: Trailing 34-17, the Eagles, who had scored on each of their two preceding drives, were facing a third-and-3 from the Bills' 25 at the 2-minute warning. The Play: Vick gets the ball to Avant on a quick out to the left just in front of the first-down marker. Bills' cornerback Drayton Florence gets his right hand on the ball as Avant is trying to secure it and jolts it loose.

With the win, the Eagles are 16-6 against the NFC West under Andy Reid. The win was the Eagles' fifth in a row over the Niners. The Eagles improved their October record in the Reid era to 26-18. The Eagles have given up first-possession touchdowns in the last two games. Todd Herremans' holding penalty in the first quarter was the eighth against the Eagles' offensive line in the first five games. The Eagles committed a season-low five penalties. The Eagles scored a touchdown on their first possession for the first time this season.

The Eagles are making another change on the offensive line, this one just four days before the team's season opener Sunday in St. Louis. Guard Kyle DeVan, whose first practice with the Eagles was Monday, practiced with the starters Wednesday, ahead of rookie Danny Watkins, who has struggled at right guard. Neither coach Andy Reid, DeVan, nor Watkins would confirm the move, or say if it is permanent, but a team source said the change has been made. Wednesday practice lineups generally reflect Sunday's starters.

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.

THE FIRST current player to filter into the NovaCare auditorium to pay tribute to Tra Thomas, as the Eagles' all-time games-played leader among offensive linemen officially retired, was Todd Herremans. These days Herremans is the right tackle, but for four seasons he played next to left tackle Thomas at left guard, after arriving as a fourth-round draftee from Saginaw Valley State. Herremans posed for photos with Thomas and former offensive line coach Juan Castillo, now the defensive coordinator.

Last March, after extending Todd Herremans' contract and re-signing Evan Mathis, the Eagles said they felt as confident about their offensive line as any other position group. With the new contracts, they had all five of their starters locked up at least through 2014. Considering the progression the line had made by the end of the 2011 season, that was seen as a positive. But, less than two weeks after the ink was dry on Mathis' five-year deal, all-pro left tackle Jason Peters ruptured the Achilles tendon in his right foot and was done for the season.
