Cole's bulky knee (and surgery not in the distant future?)

4

From Sat. "Ol’ Nick Cole was a merry old soul, and a merry old soul was he. Then the Eagles training staff called for him to leave. The starting center was sluggish running from field-to-field during this morning’s full-pads practice. Trainers intercepted Cole and advised him to head for the locker room early with the swollen knee that has bothered him for several days. Cole was favoring his left knee, walking back to the fieldhouse on his own. You got the impression Cole was trying to fight through the pain and stick it out. After practice, Cole said as much, and that he'd be fine, but it’s up to the trainers to determine when he’ll return to practice." Is it me or does it sound more and more like Cole will be have least a basic scope on his knee before the start of the season and that McGlynn has a good shot to be the starter in Week 1? Oh, Didinger this weekend on 610 said he thinks Jackson will be back and starting before Week 6. I would like to bet Didinger that Jackson isn't starting at C before Week 6 this year. More and more, this reminds me of a situation where the Eagles were confident that they could fill a position internally or with a stop-gap & it ended up costing them in a big way. It happened last year with FS & Dawkins. Happened in previous years when they didn't have a valid PR/KR or a FB. I have a bad feeling that not acquiring a C via FA or the draft is going to come back to hurt them in the early going this year.
