Andy Reid said today that S Colt Anderson and WR Riley Cooper have been ruled out of Sunday's opener at Cleveland. Anderson, a special teamer, has missed all of preseason and training camp as he rehabs from knee surgery. He was, however, activated from PUP last week and put on the 53 man roster. So he should be close to returning.

Cooper is still working to get back from a fractured collarbone suffered early in camp. His absence means the Eagles will go with 4 WRs.

Reid also mentioned that the team would likely only dress 5 of their 6 defensive ends. My guess is that of that group, rookie Vinny Curry is the most likely to take a seat. That is assuming that Jason Babin is healthy and ready to go, which all indications are that he is. Reid would not commit to Babin being ready though.

Andy was also evasive about who would start at DT. Cullen Jenkins will almost certainly be one, but Fletcher Cox & Derek Landri are up for the other starting job. We'll find out Sunday.

Finally, Nate Allen also told reporters that his hamstring, which limited him in the preseason is "100%" and that the injuries during the preseason were only minor anyway.
