Injury News

Not alot of good news, but not really any surprises either.

As expected, backup running back Correll Buckhalter will miss the game after suffering a concussion in last Sunday's loss to the Giants. Also out for the game is tight end L.J. Smith, who suffered rib and knee injuries against the Giants.

Rookie Tony Hunt will slide into Buckhalter's spot behind Brian Westbrook and Matt Schobel and Brent Celek will split time in place of Smith.

"Schobel's the starter and Celek will work in and rotate with him," Reid said.

I got a kick out of the fact that the Eagles site referred to Buckhalter as a "key player" when he gets 2 or 3 carries in a game...
