Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was not present at the beginning of Wednesday's practice because of an illness. Also, offensive guard Danny Watkins, wide receiver Mardy Gilyard, and safety David Sims were not practicing. Safety Nate Allen was practicing.


Who is the weakest link on the Eagles’ makeshift offensive line?

Allen, Watkins, and Gilyard missed Monday's game. Sims, who started in Allen's place, did not have a previously reported injury.

Phillip Thomas, who was signed to the practice squad, practiced. So did Frank Trotter, who was set to be released from the practice squad but is still on after Julian Vandervelde's promotion.
