Setting roster shakeups straight

New, comments

Over the past couple of days we seen a couple of changes to the Eagles roster. With the short week, I thought it would be smart to try and get handle on what we will see and what we could see. So here goes...

  • Before Sunday's game Omar Gaither was benched in favor of Akeem Jordan. Jordan will retain the starting WILL LB job.
  • LJ Smith was benched in favor of Brent Celek, but Celek dropped a couple passes and LJ Smith has regained the starting TE job for Thursday.
  • At halftime of the Ravens game we all know Donovan McNabb was benched in favor of Kevin Kolb, but McNabb will start Thursday.
  • As I posted earlier, Correll Buckhalter will miss the Thanksgiving game and Lorenzo Booker will be activated in his place.
  • There's also some reports that Kyle Eckel, who signed a few weeks ago, could also see his first action. Whether it's replacing Dan Klecko at FB or serving as the 3rd RB remains to be seen.

We'll keep an eye out for any more changes...
