Marty's New Mask

Marty's New Mask

We previously mentioned that newly signed Flyers goalie Martin Biron would finally be debuting his new mask, and with some help from Flickr user Sktsave27, we have a first look at the new gear. The mask features images of the Rocky statue and the Art Museum, the Liberty Bell, and the Philly skyline under the Ben Franklin Bridge (no Comcast Center rendering, which is surprising considering they're picking up his salary). The Liberty Bell and skyline silhouette combination is somewhat reminiscent of Ron Hextall's later Flyers masks, after he gave up the "Puck Stops Here" design with the huge arrow pointing to his gaping five-hole.

What do you think of the new paint? Apparently we're still waiting on Marty's new pads...

Only 1 Eagle questionable for Sunday

Only 1 Eagle questionable for Sunday

Veteran linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring) is the only Eagles player listed as questionable for this week's game. Everyone else on the 53-man roster is expected to be available. 

Ellerbe, 32, missed practice on Wednesday and was limited on Thursday and Friday. 

The Eagles' starting MIKE linebacker was also listed as questionable last week and was able to play, so expect him to be good to go. After all, this is the NFC Championship Game. There's no resting for anything else. 

In Minnesota, wide receiver Adam Thielen (lower back) and safety Andrew Sendejo (concussion) are both listed as questionable. 

Thielen, the Vikings' top receiver, missed Wednesday's practice and was limited on Thursday and Friday. Just like Ellerbe, there's no saving him for next week. 

Sendejo was limited on Wednesday and Thursday, was a full participant on Friday, but is still technically in the NFL's concussion protocol. He'll need to clear that before he's able to play, but Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said he's optimistic Sendejo will be able to play. 

Meanwhile, third defensive tackle, Shamar Stephen (knee/ankle), missed practice all week and has been ruled out. While Stephen isn't a starter, he played just under 40 percent of the Vikings' snaps this season, so missing him is still a loss.

After practicing indoors on Wednesday and Thursday, the Eagles loaded up on buses and spent their Friday practice outside at Lincoln Financial Field. Head coach Doug Pederson likes to get his guys outside for at least one day per week. 

The Eagles will have a walkthrough on Saturday before they'll be back at the Linc for Sunday's 6:40 p.m. kickoff in the NFC Championship Game.
