With Shawn Andrews hurting Eagles could turn to Jon Runyan

The fact that Andy Reid did not rule out a return of unsigned free agent right tackle Jon Runyan could mean Shawn Andrews' back injury is worse than imagined.

Why else would Reid even think about Runyan, who is still not yet cleared to play (that could come later this week) and is coming off microfracture surgery.

Andrews, who missed almost all of last season with the back injury that required surgery, has not practiced at all this season and Reid did not put a timetable on his return.  

We have been in contact with Runyan and he has not spoken to the Eagles, but would be willing to return.  He is set to see Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Alabama on Monday to get clearance to play.

Runyan made it known to us that if he is cleared to play he will be ready to play in the season opener.
