Reid: Cole, Peters Good To Go

The Eagles will have Pro Bowlers Trent Cole and Jason Peters back in the starting lineup this Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys.

"Trent's good to go. Jason's good to go," head coach Andy Reid said on Wednesday.

Cole and Peters have each missed the past two contests due to injury. Cole suffered a calf injury against the 49ers and Peters was sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Reid said that the entire team practiced on Monday and will practice on Wednesday as the Eagles are healthy coming off of their bye week. The Eagles are 12-0 after the bye under Reid, which is the longest post-bye win streak since it was instituted in 1990.

The Eagles could also have 2010 first-round draft pick Brandon Graham back in the lineup. Graham is still on the Physically Unable to Perform list after he suffered an ACL injury late last season. Graham practiced for the first time in 2011 on Monday and Reid did not rule out promoting him to the active roster before Sunday's game saying it's "an open agenda."

The Eagles do not have to make a definitive decision on Graham's status for another 19 days. Wednesday's practice will be Graham's first in pads and Reid said that it's a matter of getting the defensive end in football shape.

Reid also confirmed that the offensive line will be, from left to right, Peters, Evan Mathis, Jason Kelce, Danny Watkins and Todd Herremans.

Also, Reid noted that the Eagles did not actively shop cornerback Asante Samuel at the trade deadline last week. Samuel told 95.7 The Fanatic over the weekend that he was bothered by the trade speculation. Reid and Samuel have talked and are moving forward.
