The Eagles' offensive line depth will be challenged again this season. Right guard Andrew Gardner, who won a competition to start in training camp, will miss the remainder of the season after he was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a foot injury. The Eagles are expected to turn to third-year veteran Matt Tobin as their new starting guard. He practiced with the starting line on Tuesday. Dennis Kelly is also an option. Both players were beaten out by Gardner during the summer.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Who could blame 76ers coach Brett Brown if, after two seasons and a combined 37-127 record, he was looking for a little divine intervention? That certainly wasn't the reasoning for his visit to the Ben Franklin Parkway this past weekend to see Pope Francis, but the worldly coach couldn't pass up a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. So he and injured center Joel Embiid, hobbled with crutches, scored some premium seats to watch Saturday night's festivities. "We were right down there, and because of Joel's injury the Philadelphia and CIA and all the special police treated us well," Brown said.

CODY PARKEY said he didn't feel good from the start of warmups Sunday at MetLife Stadium, but he knew he had to kick, since he had no backup. Parkey managed five kickoffs, a 30-yard field goal, and three extra points with what he said yesterday were tears of "all three (adductor) muscles in my groin. " On Monday, Parkey went to IR. Yesterday, on a muggy afternoon more suited to training camp, he watched former Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis work with Parkey's long snapper, Jon Dorenbos, and his holder, Donnie Jones.

IN THE EARLY 1990s, when Ron Hextall was in his mid-20s and entering the prime of his goaltending career, the message was pretty straightforward when it came to playing his position and getting ready for a new season. "All they did with us was gave us our equipment and said, 'Go get em,' " Hextall said. There weren't goalie-specific trainers to work with in the offseason. There weren't many offseason training programs designed for goaltenders, either. You'd show up at camp, put the pads on and go to work.

THE EAGLES' first victory of 2015 came at a price. Kicker Cody Parkey's season is over after he suffered what a source close to the situation called "an extensive tear" of his groin in pregame warmups before Sunday's game at the Jets. And just before halftime, starting right guard Andrew Gardner went down with what MRI testing showed to be a "significant" Lisfranc tear in his right foot, a source said. Gardner probably will need season-ending surgery, the source said. He was replaced Sunday by Matt Tobin, who seems likely to slide into the starting spot this week against Washington.

Luke Schenn has been held out of the Flyers' last two preseason games as the defenseman's role with the Flyers seems to be in question. But Schenn - who has been the subject of trade rumors - does not appear worried. "It's training camp," said Schenn. "There's nothing to be upset about. Still have a week to see how things will shake out here. Still a few games left. I just want to have a couple more good games. " Schenn did not know on Sunday afternoon if he was going to play on Monday night against the Rangers.

Speedy defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, 101/2 months removed from knee surgery, opened eyes at the Flyers' training camp before being sent down to the AHL Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Saturday. In three preseason games, he had three goals, but his defensive play was uneven. "We're very excited about him," general manager Ron Hextall said after watching practice Saturday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. "Quite honestly, if you would have told me he'd come into camp and do as well as he's done, I'd have been thrilled.

EACH TIME Dave Hakstol and the University of North Dakota made it to the NCAA's Frozen Four in the eight years since Chris Porter graduated, Hakstol's phone would light up with a text message from Porter. That happened four times after Porter left Grand Forks having been to three straight Frozen Fours. UND lost in the 2004-05 national championship game when Porter was a sophomore. Boston College eliminated it in the semifinals the following two years (three actually, when you count the year after Porter's departure)

The 76ers added scoring options in rookie center Jahlil Okafor and second-year shooting guard Nik Stauskas to play alongside Nerlens Noel via the draft and a trade. Yet, the biggest question mark still has not been answered: Who will be the starting point guard for the 2015-16 season? Coach Brett Brown spoke about heading into next week's training camp at Stockton University seven point guards until he was corrected. "When you have seven point guards last year, it's just sticks in your head," Brown said.

IT WASN'T uncommon to see a Flyers player hunched over, using his stick to hold himself up at points throughout yesterday's first training camp session. There was even a time when captain Claude Giroux ended a one-on-one battle drill that finished with a missed shot on goal by taking a knee in the corner and waiting his turn in line. "I'm pretty tired, I'm not going to lie," Giroux said. "It's good. When you work hard during practice, it kind of becomes a habit during a game.
