Andy Reid not thinking about possibility of final game

The narrative of what is likely Andy Reid's final game will be discussed in Philadelphia all week -- just not by Reid. As has been the case all season, Reid did not discuss the potential for his final game.

"I'm spending my time getting ready for New York," Reid said. "Want to make sure we play well, play better than we've been playing and coach better and play better. So, that's really where my energy's gone."

When asked specifically about whether he thinks it's his final game, Reid said, "I haven't gone there." And he said it's not a problem to think that way.

Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and linebacker Mychal Kendricks remain out with concussions. Antonio Dixon was signed to add depth to defensive tackle.

"It looks like Cox is a little worse than Kendricks, but I can't tell you," Reid said. "He's got a headache today, but he also has migraines. They're evaluating that to see what's what there. They'll go through the protocol and just see what happens with it."

Derek Landri is starting at defensive tackle. Akeem Jordan is starting at outside linebacker.
