The good news for the Eagles is that only three players did not participate in practice on Thursday. The not-so-good news is that all three of those players were wide receivers.
With those three on the mend, the other receivers look to pick up the slack.
"We went out and executed the assignments and what they asked us to do," said
"I felt comfortable. I think I've been getting prepared for the last couple of weeks. They've been getting me prepared for if anything was to happen I would be the next receiver to go in," said Johnson, who is also the punt returner. "Coach is doing a great job; Mike (Vick) is doing a great job just getting me comfortable with the offense. I feel pretty good and I felt that we had a good week of practice."
Avant stated that it doesn't matter who is on the field, the same plays will be called by offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
"We're going to run the plays no matter who is in there. Everyone knows what we like to do on offense. It's going to be run different. It's different timing for the quarterback, but it's the same play," Avant said. "We have to be within ourselves and play our game; stick to our assignments, be in the right spots and Mike will make us right."
While it's a wait-and-see approach with the two starting receivers, safety
