Eagles | No treatment for LeSean McCoy
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (toe) is not injured, head coach Chip Kelly said Monday, Sept. 29. "He's not on the treatment list," Kelly said.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews paying dividends
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews stands 6-foot-3, and had a pair of touchdowns in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins. Head coach Chip Kelly likes his size, and looks forward to the future. "We wanted to get bigger at the wide receiver spot, especially in the slot," Kelly said Wednesday, Sept. 24. "Thought it would create some good matchups for us, and it's paying off for us." In the slot, Matthews will be matched against San Francisco 49ers CB Jimmie Ward, who is 5-foot-10.
Eagles | Short arms no problem for Zach Ertz
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly likes TE Zach Ertz's versatility, while it is believed the San Francisco 49ers skipped over Ertz and liked TE Vance McDonald more due to his physique and longer arms. Ertz will get a chance to show the 49ers what they are missing when his Eagles play in San Francisco in Week 4. "I was unaware that he had short arms," Kelly said. "They're long enough to catch a football because he does a really good job of that." Ertz has 45 receptions for 646 yards and five touchdowns since last season, while McDonald has managed just nine grabs for 128 yards and no scores.

Eagles | Cary Williams thinks players being overworked
Philadelphia Eagles CB Cary Williams said he believes the team is starting slow during games because the players are being overworked during practice by head coach Chip Kelly. "It's hard to go out there and fight for 60 minutes when you're fighting throughout the week to make it through one practice. I'm not the only one. I'm just the only one that's man enough to stand up here and talk to y'all. It's obviously, in my opinion, an issue in our starts," Williams said.
Eagles | Jason Kelce to undergo surgery
Philadelphia Eagles C Jason Kelce (hernia) will undergo surgery to repair a sports hernia he suffered in Week 3. Head coach Chip Kelly said he does not know how long Kelce will be out, but indicated it is a long-term injury. C David Molk will start at center while Kelce is out.
