Herremans Is a Go, Max a Maybe

Eagles left guard Todd Herremans practiced today and told reporters "I'll be there," and "I feel good" despite a calf problem that surfaced in Wednesday morning's walkthrough. Officially, the team is listing Herremans as "questionable," the same as right guard Max Jean-Gilles and linebacker Stewart Bradley.

Jean-Gilles was walking normally as he watched practice, but he did not participate. Participating on a limited basis was Bradley, for the first time since he injured his elbow back on Dec. 12. Reading between the lines of Andy Reid's postpractice remarks, Jean-Gilles might be able to play against the Packers, Bradley still seems like an extreme longshot.

Officially, Bradley, right guard Nick Cole (who would play for Jean-Gilles), Herremans and corner Asante Sanuel all were listed as limited participants, though Cole and Samuel are "probable" to play.

"I'm not too worred about (Jean-Gilles) knowing the offense," Reid said. "He's been playing quite a bit."

On Bradley, Reid said: "I still think it's a stretch for him to play, but it was good to get him back out there and get some work."

Reid said he "backed off" guys with leg injuries, such as Cole and Samuel, who have had knee problems, since the team was practicing indoors. The Eagles' outdoor fields were snow-covered, though the sun was shining brightly as practice began. Governor Rendell was unavailable for comment.

Reid said Bradley is "a beast" who has been "very optimistic" about his injury, moreso than doctors and trainers.
