Whew: Trent Cole has just a minor ankle sprain

The Eagles appear to have dodged a bullet when it comes to their best defensive player. Trent Cole, who was carted back to the locker room last night against the Chiefs, had X-rays and an MRI on his ankle and no structural damage was found. The Eagles are now calling Cole day-to-day with a mild ankle sprain but I wouldn't expect to see him on the field again until Week 1 against the Packers.

With Cole coming out fine and DeSean Jackson, who also left the game against the Chiefs early, suffering just a minor injury, Eagles fans can breathe easy. Losing their best offensive and defensive players before the season even started would have been a huge blow for the Birds.
