Default Injuries

Injuries. Wide receiver Jason Avant was the only player coach Andy Reid listed on the injury report after the game. Avant left in the third quarter with a sprained knee and did not return.
The Eagles started the second half without Samuel and safety Quintin Mikell on the field, but both players returned. Samuel received an intravenous treatment at halftime and Mikell has a sore knee.
Tackle Jon Runyan continued to play with a sprained right knee. He was asked afterward how difficult it has become to take the field.
"It's a challenge to do anything at this point," Runyan said.



Runyan is playing with a seriously damaged knee right now. What a warrior.

Runyan has played most of the year through pain/injury that would have had many of us lying in bed for a month. He is the epitome of "tough and reliable"!

If you ever had to chose a guy you'd trust to have your back under any circumstance, Runyan wouldn't be a bad choice.

If we beat Arizona, that bye week before the big game is going to help him a ton, let's hope.

Agree with all three of you. The guy is a warrior. IF we get by the Cruds those two weeks off are going to help the walking wounded.

Agree on both counts, Runyan is Da Man, and the/a bye week would really help.

If we get past this week, we might have Shawn Andrews back for the Superbowl. Giving Runyan some rest and getting the big kid back would really help us. The AFC is definitely going to be sending a great defense to represent them. Our offense will need every edge it can get.

Did anyone notice that on the Celek TD pass, Runyan was not in there? They put Herremans in his spot and placed Justice at LG. Justice held up well, but Tra tripped over his foot and he hit Tuck....sending Tra flying into the backfield.

If BigJohn calls it quits, they may move Herremans, who AR called our best lineman this year, to tackle and move Max in his spot. Ofcourse I want John back for one more year, but I feel he'll move to the booth to save his body.

I heard on WIP that Runyan asked Burkholder to cut off his leg at the knee, ala Ronnie Lott, so he could get back out there for the second half. When Burkholder pointed out that he wouldn't have a leg Runyan reconsidered. Now that's one tough guy!!

Shawn Andrews has been ruled out for Arizona?

Oh and Runyan is a legend.

Still the most important impact FA signing of the Reid era. Amazing that we've gotten 9 great years out of him after he was already an established all-pro coming off a Super Bowl apperance with the Titans.
