Eagles work out former starting RT Runyan

PHILADELPHIA -- Former starting right tackle Jon Runyan worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday.

Games/Starts: 202/192

Experience: 13 seasons Height: 6-7

Weight: 330

Runyan never missed a game in nine years with the Eagles, starting 192 consecutive regular-season contests. He wasn't re-signed after having microfracture surgery on his right knee.

Eagles coach Andy Reid brought in Runyan to check his fitness level.

Philadelphia revamped its offensive line during the offseason, acquiring two-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters from the Buffalo Bills to replace longtime starter Tra Thomas. Shawn Andrews, a two-time Pro Bowl pick at right guard, was moved to Runyan's spot. Shawn's brother, Stacy, was signed to play right guard.

Shawn Andrews missed the preseason with a back injury but expects to play in Sunday's season opener against the Carolina Panthers.
