Packers At Eagles: Marty Mornhinweg Discusses Health Of The Offensive Line

The Eagles offensive line, which struggled mightily in preseason, is finally healthy enough for all the regular starters to play. That was never the case in preseason. The question now becomes are they healthy enough to be effective?

Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg talked about getting the line up to speed.

"Well, I think that's the key. They've played a lot of winning snaps together and now they're standing, so we'll keep a close eye on that. Other than that, they're very good in their preparation and they're putting their hard work in with their recent past history and then this week. I would expect them to play at a high level."

He was also asked if there was a chance that Mike McGlynn could be asked to spell Jamaal Jackson for a series if needed. Jackson will be playing in his first game since tearing his ACL in the second to last game of the 2009 season. He didn't play in the preseason and only returned to practice a few weeks ago.

"We'll see what happens with [C] Jamaal [Jackson]. I do believe that Jamaal is in excellent physical condition. Maybe the best that he's been in, however, there are different kinds of physical condition in football. Our strength men, coaches and our trainers have just done an outstanding job with all of our players, including Jamaal."
