To be honest not really a day off, as teammates and coaches were in meetings all day... but a day off in the sense it gives guys 24 hours to assess their sore bodies and put together a plan to avoid unnecessary pain today...Too bad that notion does not apply to WR Ron Johnson, who was unceremoniously waived by the team with a relatively paltry injury settlement of $60,000 for the "Wham, Bam, Thank You, Ma'am" award of the day. Geez, thanks for letting us destroy your Eagle dreams, Ron... oh, and here's a little somethin'...and by the way, Sonbutts could use a car wash, wax and detail on his Infiniti if you need a little extra cash...I jest somewhat...but it is a cruel business, this NFL, especially if you don't have brand-name recognition...I stumbled upon this little photographic gem of Monday's practice which I titled "WHY?"...

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid is running one of the toughest training camps in the NFL at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA. He is working his team hard, with the hopes that this critical ground work will pay dividends in the 2012 season.
With 90 men on the roster, it can be hard to single out just a few to highlight. Everyone is taking their play to the highest level...
It’s almost August, training camps are in swing, and some real football is not too far away. So let’s resume our profiles of Eagles heros from the past.
Read slowly down the list of clues and try to remember this great Eagle.
1. He played college at North Carolina State.
2. His son now plays basketball at Assumption College.
3. He retired from the Eagles due to a serious...
The Eagles first preseason game is a week away. We can almost hear the leather popping and the fight song playing. Let’s get more amped up for the upcoming season by continuing with our review of great Eagles from the past.
Scroll down slowly and then tell us how many clues it takes you to figure this one out.
1. He started his professional career with two seasons in...
The weather is hot and the days are long, but the sounds and smells of football are in the air. It’s time for training camp, and once again the Philadelphia Eagles meet at Lehigh University for their summer preparations for the fast approaching football season. There is not much to cheer about in Philadelphia these days. The Phillies stink, the Flyers have missed out on three of...
Eagles left defensive end Jason Babin could miss most of training camp with a partially torn muscle in his left calf. An MRI exam revealed Babin has a second-degree strain, which occurred Saturday during a one-on-one pass-rushing drill against right tackle Todd Herremans. Babin was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2011 with 18 sacks and three forced fumbles after re-joining the...
On Saturday the Philadelphia Eagles had their first training camp practice that involved putting on the pads and enduring some contact. As we all know such contact usually results in a player or two getting banged up. Saturday’s practice resulted in two Eagles players falling to injury — receiver Riley Cooper who suffered a broken collarbone and 2012 Pro Bowl defensive...
Kinda makes you wonder if Andy Reid's Training Camp format may need to be adjusted in the future... but... for now, the initial damage is still containable...
The Eagles head into Thursday with their entire starting defensive line sidelined by injuries, a potentially troublesome situation if some guys don't recover as expected. But with Jason Babin (calf strain), Cullen...

The Eagles needed to add another body to the wide receivers corps after Ron Johnson suffered what will turn out to be a season-ending injury on Monday. They made the move on Tuesday, signing Andrew Brewer from the United Football League and waiving/injured Johnson. Brewer, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound Northwestern product, is a former teammate of Eagles backup quarterback Mike Kafka. He...
Eagles coach Andy Reid said defensive end Trent Cole has developed an AC joint (shoulder) problem that could keep him out of practice "anywhere from a day to a week." Cole and fellow starting DE Jason Babin (calf) are unlikely to miss regular season time with their injuries. Their absence right now should give an extended look to players such as Brandon Graham, Phillip...
Tier 1: The Elite
1. Arian Foster
2. LeSean McCoy
3. Ray Rice
Who I want the most: LeSean McCoy. I love Arian Foster. I love Ray Rice. But like last year, I really love LeSean McCoy. And after these guys, well, let's just say the running backs are a crap-shoot. These are hands down the elite, the most proven, and the closest to a surefire running back you will get this...
9. Michael Vick will finish in the top 5 ranked Quarterbacks.
After a disappointing campaign last season, both team-wise and individually, Vick will bounce back stronger than ever. He finished outside the top 10 QB ranks via Yahoo last season. But with a boosted Eagles confidence, I predict Vick to finish right atop the biggest names in Fantasy with Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom...
