Philadelphia Eagles Strategy and Personnel 2008-12-26


Philadelphia Eagles Strategy and Personnel 2008-12-26
Wide receiver Reggie Brown went from being a healthy inactive in the Eagles' wins over the Giants and Cleveland to playing 57 of 64 snaps in Sunday's 10-3 loss to Washington. The Eagles have six wideouts on their 53-man roster, but activated only five of them for the Giants and Browns games. Brown was the odd man out. He played Sunday because of injuries to Kevin Curtis and Hank Baskett. Brown had four catches for 47 yards. He caught a 17-yard pass on the goal line on the last play of the game but couldn't get into the end zone. If Curtis and Baskett both return this week, Brown probably will be inactive again.


PLAYER NOTES

--MLB Stewart Bradley didn't practice for the second straight game. He's nursing rib and groin injuries and is very questionable for Sunday's game against Dallas.

--DE Victor Abiamiri won't play in Sunday's season finale against Dallas. He has a lisfranc sprain in his foot. He'll be replaced at left end by Juqua Parker.

--FS Brian Dawkins, who is nursing a lower back injury, didn't practice Thursday, but it was mainly to rest his back. He practiced Wednesday and is expected to play Sunday.

--RT Jon Runyan didn't practice Thursday. He has knee and ankle injuries. He will play Sunday, but his mobility will be limited against Cowboys LB Greg Ellis.

--WR Kevin Curtis, who missed last week's game with a calf strain, practiced for the second straight day and is expected to play Sunday against Dallas.

GAME PLAN: The Eagles hope to do something Sunday they couldn't do in their Week 2 loss to the Cowboys, which is pressure quarterback Tony Romo. In both of the Cowboys' last two losses, to Baltimore and Pittsburgh, Romo was under duress much of the game and threw a combined five interceptions. The Eagles hope to force him into turnovers Sunday.

MATCHUPS TO WATCH: Eagles RDE Trent Cole vs. Cowboys LT Flozell Adams -- Cole has fared well against taller tackles like the 6-8 Adams because he rushes low and is able to get under their pads.

Eagles C Jamaal Jackson vs. Cowboys NT Jay Ratliff: Ratliff is having an exceptional season. He made the Pro Bowl and has 71/2 sacks.

INJURY IMPACT: DE Victor Abiamiri, who has been taking the bulk of the snaps at left end in the Eagles' base package and then moving inside to tackle in their nickel package, suffered a sprain in his foot and probably won't play Sunday, which will make the Eagles more susceptible to the run. Juqua Parker, who rotates with Abiamiri, doesn't have Abiamiri's size and is essentially a pass-rush specialist.
