Dorenbos '50-50': Jordan, Dunlap Out

Eagles coach Andy Reid said Friday that longsnapper Jon Dorenbos (high ankle sprain) is "50-50" for Sunday night's game against the Giants. Reid said Dorenbos practiced Friday and was moving around pretty well, but he would continue to evaluate. If the Eagles are going to bring up longsnapper Kyle Nelson from the practice squad, they have to do so by 4 p.m. Saturday. Of course, someone would have to be cut for Nelson to join the roster.

Eagles coach Andy Reid said Friday that longsnapper Jon Dorenbos (high ankle sprain) is "50-50" for Sunday night's game against the Giants. Reid said Dorenbos practiced Friday and was moving around pretty well, but he would continue to evaluate. If the Eagles are going to bring up longsnapper Kyle Nelson from the practice squad, they have to do so by 4 p.m. Saturday. Of course, someone would have to be cut for Nelson to join the roster.

Reid said LT King Dunlap and LB Akeem Jordan, both suffering from hamstring problems, will not play this week. That wasn't a surprise. Demetress Bell will start again for Dunlap and Jamar Chaney will start for Jordan.

Reid indicated that medically, WR Riley Cooper (collarbone) is ready to go, it's a matter of Reid determining Cooper has practiced enough, is sharp enough, to toss into a game, having been sidelined since the early days of training camp.
