ESPN.com NFL Nation called in to talk some Eagles. Today, Sheridan spent some time talking about the injuries the Eagles are suffering with, the latest being to Todd Herremans and Nate Allen. Herremans is going to play, but it remains to be seen how the injured arm will impact his ability. Sheridan also talked about a game from last season against the Cowboys where the Eagles went for it on 4th and 1 and did not make it. Sheridan said that Chip Kelly told reporters after the game that "you have to be able to get a yard." His thought process has surely changed it, hasn't it? Follow the scribe on Twitter.
