CLEVELAND -- The injuries were light for the Eagles in Friday's 27-10. Reserve wide receiver Brian Hernandez suffered an ankle sprain, but besides that, the Eagles came out of the game clean. That is far more encouraging than last week, when they lost Michael Vick.

Safety O.J. Atogwe was a gametime decision. He participated in pre-game warm-ups but did not feel healthy enough to play. Atgowe is suffering from a hamstring injury.

-- Ten players on the Eagles’ 90-man roster were not in uniform on Friday: quarterbacks Mike Kafka andVick; safeties Colt Anderson and Tom Nelson; offensive linemen Todd Herremans and Jason Peters; defensive linemen Jason Babin and Mike Patterson; and wide receiver Riley Cooper.

-- Cullen Jenkins started at left defensive end in Babin’s place, and Fletcher Cox took Jenkins’ spot at defensive tackle. Dennis Kelly lined up at right tackle with Herremans attending a funeral. Chas Henry took the first punt after Mat McBriar was the top punter last week. King Dunlap and Demetress Bell rotated snaps at left tackle.
