LANDOVER, Md. - Greetings from FedEx Field, where the Eagles will try to snap a five-game losing streak against the Redskins.

The Eagles will have two new starters on offense today. In addition to rookie quarterback Nick Foles, who is replacing Michael Vick, the team confirmed that Jake Scott will be starting at right guard ahead of Danny Watkins.

Scott just signed with the Eagles last Tuesday, but previously played for Eagles offensive line coach Howard Mudd. Watkins, who missed the last three games with chronic ankle soreness, took some reps with the starting offense during pregame warmups.

There was also some other reshuffling on the offensive line. Rookie Dennis Kelly, who started in place of Watkins at right guard, will move outside to right tackle today. King Dunlap will move from right tackle to left tackle to replace struggling Demetress Bell.
