Good morning. The Eagles will play their first game since Feb. 4 on Thursday. You might remember a few details from that last game. The memories won't be as lasting from Thursday's preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it's nonetheless important as the Eagles start considering how they'll pare the roster from 90 to 53. You can find all the coverage on Philly.com.
