Here are six players with something to gain tonight against the Bengals.
As always, I'll be live chatting during the game so be sure to join me.
Chad Hall, WR - He had a 22-yard carry and a 57-yard catch in the first game against the Jaguars. Hall was also the Eagles' primary return man, returning three kickoffs and two punts. Expect to see him get a lot of looks once again. Considering Mike Bell is questionable and LeSean McCoy suffered a quad contusion during the week, don't be surprised if Hall gets a few more touches at halfback. We even saw him practice there with the first team on a couple occasions at Lehigh.
Kelley Washington, WR - He is fighting for a roster spot and came very close to blocking a punt against Jacksonville. In my eyes, Washington is competing directly with Hank Baskett. The Eagles know what they have in Baskett. That's why he's not on this list. But Washington could gain ground with a good performance - both on offense and on special teams.
Mike McGlynn, C - Nick Cole will miss his second straight preseason game, and it's unclear how severe his knee injury is, or when he'll return. That means the door is wide open for McGlynn. He had no problem with the snap against Jacksonville. Pay special attention to how he performs as a blocker in the run game.
Moise Fokou, LB/DE - As I pointed out yesterday, Fokou's role could affect the Eagles' other roster decisions. Are the Eagles just experimenting with him at defensive end, or do they really think he can help them there?
Cornelius Ingram, TE - The Eagles continue to ease him in, which makes me think they're not convinced he can help this team in 2010. Ingram saw very limited action against Jacksonville and sat out a practice during the week. It's been a long road back. Last Friday was Ingram's first game action since the 2008 Capital One Bowl. It'd be great to see him make a catch tonight.
Macho Harris, CB - He hasn't played cornerback in a game since his college days with Virginia Tech. Last year's starting free safety changed positions in the offseason but didn't play against Jacksonville because of an injury. He'll likely see action with the second team. Oh, and hopefully he's still sporting the tremendous afro he had at Lehigh.
