Eagles Training Camp: Birds Leaving Lehigh

Today, the Eagles held their final practice of the year at Lehigh University and closed their 2010 training camp. Head coach Andy Reid said he thinks the team built a good foundation in their time at Lehigh.

“I think that built a foundation. In particular, a young group, and I think they need to be introduced to what the National Football League is all about. It’s faster, there’s more pressure put on you mentally and physically than what you had at the college level, and there’s no better place to figure all that out than right here. I’d rather have them figure it out here then when they get in the games they’re not worried about their conditioning or the plays that they’ve already studied, that they can go in and play football. It works into our favor when [GM] Howie [Roseman] and I have to sit down and have to make an evaluation on the players. We have a good base from practice and from the games. We can make smart decisions here.”

Reid said he was impressed with the performance of the thirteen rookies at camp this year.

“I told the team. I’ve been impressed with the energy and the work level and the effort that’s been put in. How they’ve handled themselves up here. And then the young guys have been very impressive, the draft picks, and how they’ve picked things up. Now, I give credit to the coaches and I give credit to the players that have been here that open up themselves to the young guys, even though it’s competition there, they’re not afraid to help them out. It’s a smart group that picked things up quickly.”

The team spent longer than usual at camp this year, an extra 200 plays by Reid’s estimation. So far, they seem to have escaped relatively unscathed and avoided any major injuries. Any camp that closes with everyone intact is a good one…

The Eagles play their second preseason game Friday night against the Bengals in Cincinnati.


Eagles Training Camp: Asante Samuel And Jeremy Maclin Return To Practice

After looking beat up the past couple weeks, the Eagles are slowly returning to full health. Yesterday DeSean Jackson made his return in the morning practice and in the afternoon both Asante Samuel and Jeremy Maclin returned.

The Eagles will play their first preseason game this Friday.

For a full recap of yesterday’s afternoon practice, check out BGN.


Eagles Training Camp: DeSean Jackson Returns To Practice

After being “carted off” the field at Lehigh University seven days ago, DeSean Jackson has returned to full practice this morning. The pro bowl WR had been nursing a back injury, but was running and working out over the past few days.

Jeremy Maclin, Mike Bell, & Asante Samuel didn’t practice today, but did spend the morning on the adjacent field at Lehigh running and working out.


Eagles Training Camp: Maclin Injury Update

I just got back from Eagles training camp and wanted to provide a few updates on the Maclin injury situation.

He was hurt in a no pads, non-contact drill. He was running a pattern, planted his foot and went down. Kind of a freak injury, and nothing that could have been prevented. He was taken off the field by cart after clearly favoring his left leg.

The Eagles soon announced that he had a “hyperextended left knee” and that the team was still evaluating him and would have a further update tomorrow.

About a half an hour later, Kevin Kolb told 97.5-FM The Fanatic that he had just visited Maclin who was positive and Kolb didn’t get the impression that the injury was anything serious.

Maclin later told reporters “I should be all right.” He was seen walking out of the locker room under his own power with his leg in a sleeve.


Eagles Training Camp: Jeremy Maclin Carted Off Field With Knee Injury

Eagles second-year receiver Jeremy Maclin was carted off the field during practice on Tuesday afternoon, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Maclin needs a assistance walking out of cart and into locker room.

Jason Brewer from Bleeding Green Nation reports that the Eagles believe Maclin hyperextended his left left knee, but that there won’t be any additional news until tomorrow.

I am live at Eagles camp all day today and will be providing updates after the two practices. But in the meantime check out my twitter feed for blow by blow updates of the goings on at Lehigh.


Eagles Training Camp: DeSean Jackson Injury Not Considered Serious

Bleeding Green Nation’s Jimmy K was on hand at Eagles training camp today and reports that DeSean Jackson was taken off the field on a cart with an apparent back injury.

The Inquirer is reporting that the injury is not considered serious.

The Eagles gave the injury update after practice, but said Jackson was still being evaluated. About a half hour after the update, the receiver, who hasn’t spoken to reporters since he arrived at Lehigh two days ago, walked out of the locker room on his own, got into his black Porsche and sped away without comment.

Teammates and Eagles sources were saying the injury wasn’t serious. Judging by the way Jackson left the practice facility, they could be right.

Obviously it doesn’t even need to be said that potentially losing Jackson to an injury would be a crushing blow. So far though, it appears a bullet was dodged here.


Eagles and Brandon Graham Agree To Five-Year Deal

The Eagles have agreed to terms with their first round pick Brandon Graham on a five-year deal. The 13th overall pick will be in Lehigh tomorrow.

That means all Eagles picks have all 13 of their draft picks signed and in camp.

So far, so good with Eagles training camp 2010.

After signing his deal, Graham admitted that he was was listening when the coach told reporters that he had to get to camp:

“It feels good. Because I really wanted to get to training camp and Coach Reid really wanted me to get to camp and now it’s time to show them why they picked me. I have a lot of work to do, but I’m ready to go.”


Eagles Sign Second Round Pick Nate Allen

Dave Spadaro broke the news that the Eagles have agreed to terms on a four year deal with rookie safety Nate Allen. He will report to Lehigh tomorrow.

That leaves just first round pick Brandon Graham unsigned. Unfortunately, just one first round pick has signed which is going to make it tough for the team and the agent to reach a deal. As it stands now, it could be at least another week before Graham gets into camp.
