Ryans: Eagles wanted to face Brady

FOXBORO -- The Patriots did not play 27 of their roster players on Monday night in a 27-17 preseason loss to the Eagles at Gillette Stadium. The only first-team skill player on offense that played was Stevan Ridley but he didn't play until the second half as Tom Brady, Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez and Jabar Gaffney all got the night off. 

Instead, the Patriots started quarterback Ryan Mallett, who finished 10-of-20 for 105 yards and a touchdown. Brian Hoyer played the second and fourth quarters and completed just 5-of-17 passes for 55 yards and no scores. 

"You want to face their best guys," said Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans. "That's what we prepared for. We prepared for those guys this week and that's something we were looking forward to, facing those guys but it's out of our control. We can't control it, and no need to worry about it. There's nothing we can do about it. We just have to play...

Cunningham on Vick hit: 'That's just football'

FOXBORO -- Patriots edge rusher Jermaine Cunningham knocked out Michael Vick with one hellacious hit to the ribs in the first quarter of Monday night's preseason game against the Eagles. The hit was so hard that Vick didn't play another snap and headed immediately to the locker room for x-Rays, which came back negative. 

"It's football," Cunningham said. "Hits like that happen all the time."

Vick was knocked out of action last year with a non-displaced fracture in the ribs after a hit midway through the season in a home loss to the Cardinals in Philadelphia. 

Cunningham appears bigger this season, as he is playing the outside linebacker spot and fighting for a roster spot on the team. 

"It's football," Cunningham repeated. "It felt good to be out there playing football. It's still early in the year. We still have a couple of preseason games left. We just have to keep building. ...

Bobby V: No one event led to McClure firing

Speaking to WEEI.com at 'The Beckett Bowl' charity event at Jillian's, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said there was no one incident that led to the dismissal of pitching coach Bob McClure Monday.

"Not at all," Valentine said. "Bob's one of the greatest guys I've been around. I thought everything was trending in the right direction. There's just probably not enough season to let it get to where it needs to be."

When asked if the decision was made suddenly, Valentine said, "I think it's been around for a long time."

McClure was hired by Valentine and the Red Sox upper management in the offseason after interviewing pitching coach candidates Neil Allen and Brad Arnsberg.

The 60-year-old told WEEI.com a month ago that while his relationship with the manager had improved, there had been problems with Valentine earlier in the season.

"Was there anything as far as us not seeing eye to eye? Oh yeah,...

Rough draft: Chung hurt, Pats lose

FOXBORO -- With over 25 players not playing, the Patriots got a long look at second and third team players battling for roster spots during a 27-17 preseason loss to the Eagles at Gillette Stadium Monday night. Steve Gostkowski was one of the stars of the game for New England, converting all three field goal attempts, including a 55-yarder in the third quarter. Tom Brady was one of several starters that did not play, joining Rob Gronkowski, Jerod Mayo, Vince Wilfork, Aaron Hernandez, Wes Welker, Jabar Gaffney, Brandon Lloyd and Logan Mankins.

Brady did not dress and was not seen inside Gillette all night. Ryan Mallett started the game and the second half while Brian Hoyer got significant playing time in the second and fourth quarters. Starting strong safety Patrick Chung made a tackle on LeSean McCoy late in the first quarter and left with a shoulder injury and did not return. The injury is not believed to be serious. 

The Patriots jumped out...

Vick, Chung leave with injuries

FOXBORO -- Patrick Chung and Michael Vick left Monday night's preseason game after suffering injuries in the first quarter. Both players headed immediately to their respective locker rooms with neither expected to return. 

Vick was drilled midway through the first quarter on Philadelphia's second drive of the game. He dropped back and scrambled in the pocket. Instead of taking the sack, he heaved the ball downfield, opening his side to the oncoming Jermaine Cunningham. The Patriots defensive end drilled the Eagles quarterback in the ribs. Vick was slow to get up before taking a knee and being tended to by Philadelphia trainers at the Eagles 10 yard line. X-rays on his ribs were negative but he was ruled out for the rest of the game. 

He made his way to the sidelines before heading off the field slowly with the help of training staff. 

For the Patriots, Chung injured his shoulder making a tackle with Sterling Moore on the...
