Kurt Coleman took the majority of first team repetitions at strong safety in place of Jarrad Page, who has struggled for much of the season.

While no one will quite say it, Coleman will start Sunday at Washington.

"I'll leave that for the coaches," Coleman said. "We'll see."

Rookie Jaiquawn Jarrett also took few first team reps, but he said it wasn't much more than he has over the last few weeks. Page was listed as a limited participant because of the stinger injury he suffered against the Bills Sunday.

Should the Eagles scrap their wide-nine defensive line scheme?
Yes. The linebackers can't pick up the slack against the run.
No. They can't change their philosophy this late in the game.

Coleman started the season at free safety but was benched during the Giants game after he failed to wrap up receiver Victor Cruz. Nate Allen took his place.

"It did miss a tackle, but I gave it my all," Coleman said.

The safety positions, for the most part, are interchangeable.
