Jim Schwartz discusses his cornerback situation and lake effect moisture

Eagles defensive coordinator coached up the media

NFL: Preseason-Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Jim Schwartz met with the media this morning in preparation for facing the Bears on Monday Night Football.

The focus was the status of his cornerbacks. Leodis McKelvin left the Browns game with a hamstring injury and his status for Monday night is still up in the air. The Eagles only have four pure cornerbacks on the roster in McKelvin, Nolan Carroll, Ron Brooks and Jalen Mills.

If McKelvin is unable to play, Mills is expected to start his place.

Schwartz was also asked about the usage of Mychal Kendricks, who played only 37% of snaps on Sunday.

He also praised the work of second year linebacker Jordan Hicks.

Schwartz, who spent five seasons with the Bears as a division rival as head coach of the Lions, and also coached at Chicago in 2014 as a member of the Bills staff, also dropped some science on the media.
