Danny Watkins will likely be the only starter to play Thursday when the Eagles travel to New York to face the Jets in their final preseason game.

The rookie right guard confirmed that he will play and that he didn't have a problem with it, even though fellow rookie, starting center Jason Kelce, won't be asked to take the field.

"I asked for it," Watkins said.

With Watkins slated to play with the second team offense, Kelce said that he got some work at right guard.
"They want to make sure I know all the positions on the field," said Kelce, who beat out veteran Jamaal Jackson for the starting center job.

With Kelce at first team right guard, Jackson handle the snaps. He said that he did not know if he was playing on Thursday. Jackson could be a potential trade chip for the Eagles.

OTHER NOTES

- The Eagles met the 80-man roster deadline when they released cornerback Isaiah Truffant today.
