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 the top free agents in the league, and the Sixers seem to be stuck in limbo until at least next summer. The only hope right now for loyal Philadelphians is the Eagles.
Here is a breakdown on how the Eagles are performing in Training Camp so far:
Wide Receiver Riley Cooper suffered a fractured collarbone. There is no timetable on his return.
Wide Receiver Donald Johnson suffered a dislocated ankle on a non contact play. There is no timetable on his return.
Defensive End Jason Babin is confirmed to have a stained calf muscle. There is no timetable on his return.

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 first practices featuring pads for the Philadelphia Eagles took place this weekend and there were some casualties.
Riley Cooper suffered a broken left collarbone at Saturday’s practice. The wideout is expected to have a big season in 2012 but will be out for at least six weeks. Cooper will have surgery on Monday to plate his collarbone. The lost time in training camp is a disappointment...
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...
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...

Wide receiver Andrew Brewer was signed by the Eagles, who waived/injured wide receiver Ron Johnson. Brewer played the past two seasons in the UFL for the Omaha Nighthawks, where Eagles player personnel executive Rick Mueller was the general manager. Brewer set a Northwestern single-season record in 2009 by averaging 16.2 yards per catch, with current Eagle Mike Kafka his quarterback.
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...
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...
The Philadelphia Eagles did not have the best first day in pads yesterday, losing both wide receiver Riley Cooper and Jason Babin to injuries. Cooper suffered a broken collarbone, while Babin sustained yet another injury to his calf. Both are expected to miss a decent amount of time.
But they say when one door closes, another one opens. In this case, could Cooper’s injury open...
After a week off to coincide with the bye week, BDTS is back and this time with the very familiar Philadelphia Eagles. The Falcons and Eagles have matched up every year since the Mike Smith era began. The Eagles have dominated the series winning three of four, but they fell to the Falcons last year in the Georgia Dome. This time the Matt Ryan led Falcons will head to Lincoln Financial...
