Guard Nick Cole missed his third consecutive day of practice and it will be a "game-time decision" on whether or not he plays, head coach Andy Reid said Friday. In a mild surprise, Max Jean-Gilles would get the start if Cole is not ready, Reid said.
Cole is listed as questionable for Sunday.
Recently acquired Reggie Wells filled in for Cole during Sunday's game against the Jaguars, but got tepid reviews and said Friday he has worked this week at left guard, where he would back up Todd Herremans. It was thought that Wells might compete for a starting right guard spot, but he has apparently fallen behind Jean-Gilles there.
"Reggie's been a left guard for the last six years. So to learn the offense and then put him on the right side, I'm not sure that's fair to him," Reid said. "Max has played both sides. Max came off a heck of a training camp – most of that was on the left side – so I put him over there where he's played for us before and has a little better feel for the offense right now."
