PHILADELPHIA -- Chad Ochocinco will not play here Sunday as he has been ruled out with a sore hamstring, according to a report in the Boston Globe.
The receiver showed up on the injury report on Friday with the injury and did not participate, according to the team's injury report. Ochocinco has caught just 11 passes this season for 201 yards and no touchdowns.
Ochocinco has been active and played in New England's previous 10 games. Friday marked the first missed practice for the star receiver since being traded to the Patriots from Cincinnati in July.
The Patriots arrived in Philadelphia on Saturday and will play the Eagles at 4:15 p.m. ET at Lincoln Financial Field. For more, visit the Patriots team page at weei.com/patriots and the blog It Is What It Is.

After meeting for over 15 hours, beginning on Friday and ending in the early morning hours on Saturday, the NBA owners and players reached a tentative agreement to end the lockout.
"We've reached a tentative understanding that is subject to a variety of approvals and very complex machinations, but we're optimistic that will all come to pass and that the NBA season will begin December 25," Commissioner David Stern said.
The NBA regular season schedule would be shortened to 66 games under the proposed plan, with training camp opening on December 9th. The tentative deal still must be agreed upon by both a majority of the NBA owners and players.
According to multiple reports, all citing a league spokesperson, the NFL fined Patriots guard Logan Mankins $7,500 for a late hit against the Chiefs in Monday night's victory over Kansas City. Mankins was flagged for unnecessary roughness in the fourth quarter of the contest when he shoved defensive end Amon Gordon to the ground after the play; the Patriots were also penalized for an illegal shift on the play, resulting in a Tom Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez touchdown catch being taken off the board. Mankins now has incurred eight penalties this year, most on the Patriots.

According to Maureen Mullen (via Twitter) and subsequently confirmed by multiple outlets, the A's have hired Chili Davis -- the hitting coach of the Red Sox' Triple-A Pawtucket affiliate in 2011 -- to be their major league hitting coach for next season. The report was subsequently confirmed by multiple outlets.
Davis spent 19 years in the majors, retiring after the 1999 season.

Davis will replace Gerald Perry, who was also hired by the A's from the PawSox for the 2010 season.
