Eagles' Jordan ruled out for Sunday
By Dan Graziano
We knew it was coming, but Eagles coach Andy Reid made it official Friday that linebacker Akeem Jordan (hyperextended knee) will not play against the Chargers on Sunday. The Eagles will move Chris Gocong over to middle linebacker and Will Witherspoon will play the weakside spot. Rookie Moise Fokou, who filled in for Gocong against the Cowboys last week, will remain at the strongside position. Reid didn't shed much light on the situation Friday.
"We have a variety of things we can do there. We have a bunch of different combinations that we’re working on and we’ll just play it how we see it once we get out there as far as personnel goes."
In other injury news, left tackle Jason Peters did not practice Friday and he's listed as questionable for Sunday's game. According to reporters on the scene, starting left guard Todd Herremans moved over and took some reps at left tackle during practice.
