Tight end Cornelius Ingram suffered another setback and will not travel with the team to Kansas City for tomorrow night's game.

An MRI last night at Jefferson Hospital as determined that Ingram had a "significant" Baker’s cyst in the back of his left knee and calf, according to the Eagles.

Ingram underwent a procedure at the Rothman Institute today to drain that cyst.

Ingram is trying to come back after two knee surgeries that have cost him the last two years. He is looking more and more likely to land on either injured reserve or the practice squad, meaning rookie Clay Harbor would be the second tight end.

Coach Andy Reid said yesterday that the second tight end plays a maximum of 25 percent of the snaps.

EARLIER:

A number of Eagles players are involved in charitable endeavors throughout the community, but we thought this one gets the prize for most creative and was worth mentioning.

Eagles fullback Leonard Weaver is asking fans to come up with a name for his dog as part of a contest to support his Leonard Weaver Family Foundation. The dog is a 22-week-old English Bulldog that Weaver adopted when the Eagles broke training camp.

The contest begins Sept. 5. Fans make a minimum $25 donation and submit a name. The winner receives two tickets in a suite, including food and beverages, to either the Giants, Vikings or Cowboys; a limo ride to the game; a meet-and-greet with Weaver afterward and an autographed football.

By the way, Weaver also is donating two game tickets to every Eagles home game to a deserving high school football player in conjunction with the Daily News this season.
