It's DONOVAN at QB, Jordan at WILL

The only change in the Eagles' starting lineup for this weekend's road game with the Saints is at weakside linebacker, according to Andy Reid, where athletic rookie Akeem Jordan likely will replaced surgery-bound veteran Takeo Spikes (torn rotator cuff).

If the Eagles open against the Saints in regular defense, Jordan gets the nod. If the Eagles start in their nickel package, the guy is rookie third-round pick Stewart Bradley.

Also, Mike Gasperson will be promoted to the 53-man roster from the practice squad and play what Andy Reid described as a dual role at WR-TE.

Reid said tight ends L.J. Smith (knee) and Matt Schobel (concussion) would be held out of practice. Additionally, Brian Dawkins (flu), Brian Westbrook (knee), Reggie Brown (knee) and Shawn Andrews (knee) were to be held out of work. Andrews participated in the walkthrough.
