Runyan won't be back to save the day - or the line

The roster spot to open when linebacker Omar Gaither goes on injured reserve after foot surgery could go to an offensive lineman.
But it won't be veteran Jon Runyan, who played for the Eagles from 2000-2008.
The Eagles are happy with right tackle Winston Justice, and encouraged enough with the progress of King Dunlap to respectfully pass on Runyan, who is on the mend from knee surgery.
It's a shame because the O-line could use a little more stability, what with Shawn Andrews in and out of the big picture so often and injuries hitting both sides of center Jamaal Jackson.
And the Birds never can have enough leadership, which is what Runyan supplied almost every minute he was on the team payroll.
