Philadelphia Eagles Notes, Quotes 2009-02-27
--Defensive coordinator Jim Johnson has returned to work following radiation treatment to shrink the melanoma tumor on his spine, according to head coach Andy Reid. Johnson did not attend the scouting combine in Indianapolis with the rest of the coaching staff because of his cancer treatment. Reid said he is hopeful that Johnson will be able to run the defense in the team's spring minicamps. The first one is in early May.


--While the Eagles aren't closing the door on re-signing veteran right tackle Jon Runyan, who had microfracture surgery on his knee in early February, they want to see how his recovery goes before they decide anything. "Time will tell on that," coach Andy Reid said. "They're all different. I've seen (microfracture surgeries) that worked and I've seen ones that didn't."

--While Reid is open to trading up in the first round on draft day, he said the Eagles are confident they will get two very good players with their two first-round picks, the 21st and 28th overall. "There are 28 quality players out there, who would be worthy of a first-round pick," he said. "I think there's some depth in the draft." The Eagles have traded out of the first round the last two years.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I've got a lot of time here. We'll see how it goes." -- Andy Reid on whether he will be looking for a fullback to replace Dan Klecko.
