Witherspoon making strong debut for Eagles

LANDOVER, Md. -- It looks like the Eagles made a pretty strong deadline trade for Will Witherspoon Tuesday. They sent wide receiver Brandon Gibson and a fifth-round pick in 2010 to the St. Louis Rams for the 29-year-old Witherspoon. And in his first game with the Eagles, Witherspoon has returned an interception for a touchdown and forced a fumble.

It's been an awful start for Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell and you have to wonder how much longer Jim Zorn will stay with him. On the injury front, Redskins tight end Chris Cooley has left the game with an ankle injury and his return is questionable.
