The Philadelphia Eagles took to the practice field this morning but head coach Andy Reid was notably absent. The team told reporters that Reid was dealing with a personal issue and players were reportedly seen praying on the field prior to the start of practice. None of the Eagles players or members of the coaching staff were made available to reporters and the team expects that general manager Howie Roseman will address the media later on today. There is no reason to speculate as to what the personal issue is at this time. Stay tuned for more details as they become available later today. The Eagles have stated that a statement will be issued by the club’s general manager as well as the Chief of Police from Leigh University. No questions will be answered however. UPDATE- In a statement from the Eagles, Andy Reid’s son Garrett Reid was found dead this morning. An investigation is ongoing at this time with no suspicious activities suspected.
