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 Jenkins (hamstring) and Trent Cole (shoulder strain) out of the picture temporarily, it gives the coaches a chance to better sort out the logjam behind them.
On Wednesday, for example, Darryl Tapp and Brandon Graham, who each battled through lingering injury problems a year ago, were able to get almost all of the first-team DE repetitions at training camp.Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham (54) tries to muscle past center Dallas Reynolds (66) at their training camp at Lehigh University in Bethlehem on Wednesday.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jason Babin may miss the entire preseason due to a right calf strain injury, a league source tells CSNPhilly’s Reuben Frank .
Babin got hurt on Saturday during 1-on-1 drills.
Per Frank, Babin has suffered a Grade 2 muscle strain, meaning that a small tear exists in the muscle and that there is some bleeding. According to the source,
As Philadelphia Eagles training camp continues, the contenders and pretenders for roster spots are starting to separate themselves a little bit. Nothing is settled yet, of course, but there are a few new players who have a legitimate chance of making this team.
By new players, I’m not referring to any of the Eagles’ draft picks because for the most part, they are all virtual...
The longest tenured coach in the NFL right now is Andy Reid. He has been the coach in Philadelphia since 1999. Since he has taken over the Eagles, they have won 6 division titles. Been to the NFC Championship game 5 times(which he is 1-4), and has made it to the Super Bowl just 1 time (which he lost to New England 24-21). Since 1999 the rival Giants have made it to the Super Bowl...
One by one, the Eagles' starting defensive line has been picked off by injuries, and all four of them watched Thursday's practice, including defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins, who injured his hamstring Wednesday. "We have our defensive line meetings in the training room," Jenkins joked Thursday. Jenkins said the injury is mild and the "tweak" would likely...
Throughout the NFL, the injury bug is biting down...Hard.
Just days into camp, receiver Ron Johnson endured a dislocated ankle and Riley Cooper suffered a broken left collarbone. Philadelphia Eagles' head coach, Andy Reid, has yet to confirm the addition of any replacement free-agent receivers. If the Eagles are serious about winning, then they should bring in their old friend...
The Philadelphia Eagles have traded linebackers Moise Fokou and Greg Lloyd to the Indianapolis Colts for cornerback Kevin Thomas and a conditional seven-round pick in the 2013 draft.
Thomas, a third-round pick in 2010, played in nine games last season with the Colts, starting five. He had 33 tackles and three knockdowns. Thomas spent his rookies season on injured reserve because...
The Philadelphia Eagles acquired cornerback Kevin Thomas and a conditional seventh-round draft pick in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts that sent linebackers Moise Fokou and Greg Lloyd to the Colts. Colts general manager Ryan Grigson had been the Eagles director of player personnel before being hired by Indianapolis in January, and this is the second trade he's made with...
No matter what I say or do, I won’t be able to convince owners who drafted Michael Vick last year that they should take him again this year.
The damage has been done. It’s irreparable. Fantasy owners don’t forget, and they hold grudges. It’s part of our game.
But for the other 11 owners in any given league, Vick and other post-hype players are ripe for the picking. The five...
Call it the “Dream Team,” call it a “dynasty,” or simply call it a team that has yet to cash in on its potential.
For the second year in a row, a comment from an Eagles quarterback has brought attention to the one thing missing from head coach, executive vice president of football operations, and de facto sultan Andy Reid’s resume: a Super Bowl win.
As the Eagles arrive...
