Philadelphia Eagles: LG John Welbourn's inflamed knee has forced him to miss another practice Wednesday, and he's listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. For the second straight week, coach Andy Reid said that OL Artis Hicks would start if Welbourn is unable to play. "He's done a nice job since he's been here," Reid told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "It's a great opportunity for the kid if [Welbourn's injury] is serious." Hicks has yet to play on the offensive line in a regular-season game.
