DeMeco Ryans donned a helmet for the first time at practice this week, but said he likely won’t know until Sunday whether he’ll be able to play after suffering a groin strain against the Rams.
“When Sunday gets here, we’ll see how it feels,” he said. “If I can go, if I’m effective, feel like I can help my team, I’ll be out there. If I’m not, then I won’t be.”
On the Eagles’ official injury report, he was listed as limited.
“Just trying to get back to it, just trying to get back into where I can go full swing,” Ryans said. “Certain movements don’t feel too good. When I’m effective, I’ll be out there.” Read more »

Here’s a roundup of what the national media are saying about the Eagles this week.
Ifeanyi Momah says that when he looks back at the tape of the joint practices with the Patriots from a year ago, it makes his stomach turn.
“I looked terrible. During one-on-ones I didn’t catch a single pass,” said Momah. “Looking back at that film, it gets me kind of upset. I made sure [on Tuesday] when I came out here during one-on-ones, I tried to beat up the DBs and I caught every pass that came to me.”

We got a request from a reader yesterday to run through the Eagles’ wide receiver depth chart with the guys currently on the roster.
And since we are a blog of the people, we will oblige.
The Eagles currently have nine wide receivers on their roster (that does not include pass-catchers like TE Zach Ertz and RB Darren Sproles).
Below is a player-by-player look at how each guy figures into the team’s 2014 plans. Keep in mind that this outlook will likely change post-draft. Read more »
“He was just proud of his guys and just appreciative of everyone buying into his program,” said Eagles receiver/special teamer Brad Smith, via SI.com. “A lot of people didn’t know if it would work — a college coach coming into the NFL and how guys would respond and how they would respect him.”
It wasn’t so hard generating that level of respect in the latter stages of the season when the Eagles captured seven of eight to win the NFC East. It was early on, around the time that Philly was 1-3 and then 3-5, that could have presented problems. There were skeptics inside the locker room for sure, but the majority of players were on board despite the sub-.500 record. Read more »
