Runyan still waiting for call

Former Eagles right tackle Jon Runyan said he continues to wait for a call from someone who might be interested in having him join their team. Runyan worked out for the Eagles, Chiefs and Bills earlier this season, but is still not back in the NFL.

He said his knee, following offseason microfracture surgery, "has taken a turn for the better in the last month" during an interview on the coach's show on WIP (this came during the part of the show without Andy Reid).

During his news conference earlier Monday, coach Andy Reid was asked about whether he was concerned about the offensive line and was considering bringing in new players. "I think we'll be alright," he said.

Kicker David Akers, who missed two field goals Sunday, said he was at his locker initially when reporters arrived, then left. It looked like a wonky snap on at least one of those missed field goals.

Of the misses, Akers said on WIP, "I let down my teammates, the fans and the organization."

Remember when you just assumed the Birds had the kicking edge, every week?
