Jason Peters pushed back hard when asked if the time is now for him to transition from tackle to guard.
“No, no. I can still play tackle. I’m the best we got,” he said following the game Sunday. “Who are they going to put there? Who is better than me in this locker room? Nobody. Who can they draft better than me? Nobody. Who can they pick up better than me? Nobody.”
Those comments were presented to Lane Johnson during locker cleanouts Monday. Read more »

Miles Austin, Ryan Mathews, Thad Lewis, Denzel Rice, Cedric Thornton, Barrett Jones and Tanner Hawkinson will be inactive. Read more »
UPDATE: The Eagles added Bennie Logan (knee) to the injury report this morning as questionable for today’s game. The nose tackle was not listed on the team’s practice report at all in the past week and was a full participant on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter also reported that New England’s Danny Amendola (knee) and Jamie Collins (illness) will play.

After practice Tuesday, Malcolm Jenkins clarified comments he had made on WIP 94.1 about the way the Eagles hold each other accountable for mistakes.
“From a coaching style, I was brought up a little bit different where most mistakes that teammates or players make were brought up more in a team setting,” Jenkins said Tuesday.
On Wednesday, Chip Kelly was asked about his response to Jenkins’ comments, and why he chooses not to address glaring mistakes in front of the entire team for the sake of time.
Chip Kelly didn’t provide reporters with health updates on his players, after getting Jason Peters‘ status wrong last week, so we were left to our own devices.
T-Mac brings us video of Sam Bradford warming up with his teammates, who was later seen throwing with the Eagles’ quarterbacks.
This means he has progressed through the concussion protocol at least to the point where he can wear a helmet in practice and throw a football, but does not inherently indicate that he is completely cleared for contact just yet.
The Eagles’ season through three weeks has been a fascinating series of twists and turns. Before the opener in Atlanta, many considered the rushing attack to be a potential juggernaut. After Week 3, however, they rank third-to-last in yards per carry.
The secondary, meanwhile, was considered a potential weakness in the offseason. But after the win against New York, the Eagles’ defense ranks in the top-10 in interceptions, opponent passer rating and yards per throw allowed. Read more »
It looks like the Eagles could be down two of their top inside linebackers for Sunday’s crucial game against the Jets.
Billy Davis that Kiko Alonso, who is believed to have suffered a partial tear of his left ACL, is still in the evaluation process. “We’re crossing our fingers and hoping everything turns out for the best. We’re unsure about him,” said Davis, “but for this week I don’t expect him to play.”
Mychal Kendricks might not be available either. He sat out Tuesday’s practice along with Alonso as he nurses a hamstring strain.
“There is an outside chance we pick him up this week but it will be hard for him to get back,” said Davis. “But I think he has a shot at doing it.”
