MAYBE SINCE the Eagles' offensive line hasn't enjoyed last season's continuity, it isn't yet functioning as a smooth, consistent, synchronized unit. Maybe LeSean McCoy's NFL rushing title led opponents to spend more time studying Chip Kelly's inside zone and outside zone read plays, to figure out ways of defeating the blocking and limiting cutbacks, ways that somehow weren't apparent during the 2013 season. Maybe McCoy allows himself to be stopped more easily than he did a year ago, when the offense was perceived to rest firmly on his shoulders; the addition of Darren Sproles could have made McCoy feel less urgency.

The Eagles' defensive plans for 2010 looked a little wobbly when middle linebacker Stewart Bradley limped off yesterday favoring his left leg, the day after Marlin Jackson's injury. Let's see - middle linebacker and free safety. Wasn't there some sort of trouble there last season? Bradley left the field and went inside midway through yesterday's workout. The Eagles later said he had tweaked a calf, an injury that shouldn't be a big deal, unless Bradley aggravates it or something.

It was fair to wonder whether Eagles offensive tackle Tra Thomas would be at this weekend's minicamp after he joined wide receiver Terrell Owens in hiring Drew Rosenhaus as his agent earlier this month. Thomas will be there, but he will not be participating in the activities because of a blood clot in his leg that the team revealed yesterday. According to one team source, Thomas has had the problem for a while. The source said Thomas has been attending off-season workouts with his teammates at the NovaCare Complex.

A SECURITY GUARD who was supposed to watch the cars of Philadelphia Eagles players during games has been charged with ripping off offensive lineman Todd Herremans to the tune of more than $225,000. Federal prosecutors accused Robert Von Ryan, 37, of Philadelphia, of going into the vehicle of a player identified as T.H., and copying his bank account information. He then allegedly transferred $225,034.52 from the player's account without authorization. Authorities said Von Ryan used the money to pay various bills and make purchases for himself and others.

IT'S OFFICIAL - the 2013 Eagles offensive line, the bellweather of that NFC East championship team, will not play one game together in 2014. An NFL source said right guard Todd Herremans will have season-ending surgery Friday to fix the torn biceps in his left arm, 3 days before left guard Evan Mathis returns from his knee injury to play against Carolina. Mathis went down in the season opener, while right tackle Lane Johnson was serving a four-game suspension. Center Jason Kelce underwent abdominal surgery after the third game, returning Sunday.

LIKE SO many things concerning the Eagles, the plight of running back LeSean McCoy is complicated. On one hand, considering the high expectations on McCoy - many self-appointed - coming into the season, the fact that he ranks just seventh in the NFL in rushing yards has to be viewed as disappointing. After all, McCoy led the league in 2013 in the same category with just over 1,600 yards. With his current total at 505 yards, McCoy would have to rush for 1,102 yards in the Eagles' final nine games just to match his All-Pro season.

DeSean Jackson became just the third Eagle to register 1,000 receiving yards in a season in the Andy Reid era. With 140 yards yesterday, Jackson has 1,087 with two games left. The other two Reid Eagles to crack 1,000 ? Terrell Owens and Kevin Curtis. With 48 yards Sunday, LeSean McCoy broke the Eagles' rookie record for rushing yards, passing Correll Buckhalter (586). McCoy has 606. Rocca's third-quarter touchback was just his third in 64 attempts this season. Todd Herremans' holding penalty in the third quarter was just the fifth of the season by Eagles offensive linemen, and only the third in the last eight games.
