Andy Reid is sticking with left tackle Demetress Bell as long as King Dunlap is out and center Dallas Reynolds in place of Jason Kelce after a forgettable performance by the offensive line in a 27-6 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. 

When asked if Bell is still the starter at left tackle, Reid said yes. When asked if Steve Vallos will get snaps at center in Reynolds' place, Reid said, "No, I haven't goten there."

"I thought after the first two serious, I thought he settled down," Reid said of Reynolds. "I thought he was anxious the first couple of series. Then I thought he settled down and thought he played a pretty good game after that."

"We'll see how Jon does here in the next day or so, if it calms down a little bit," Reid said.
