Eagles Training Camp 2012: Rookie WR Marvin McNutt Gets Chance To Stand Out In Camp

With Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper sidelined for six weeks after Monday's upcoming surgery for a broken collarbone, rookie wideout Marvin McNutt will get a chance to show what he can do during training camp.

McNutt (6-2, 216), a sixth-round pick out of Iowa, said his spring went okay, although he was limited by having to learn the playbook. "Spring went all right. We were out there. I really just learned the offense. Kinda moving a little slow. If you don't know anything, you can't really move as fast as you want. Once you kind of get used to the situation and get used to the style of play, you can move a little faster." (via Philly.com)

Head coach Andy Reid talked about McNutt's most recent effort in practice from Saturday on Sunday. Reid said McNutt "had a good day yesterday. It was good to see. He's a big, physical kid. You saw that, you saw him attack the football, make some big plays. You saw him on a quick screen, make some people miss." Reid admitted McNutt had some issues learning the plays during the spring but looked good once the pads were on in camp. Reid also said that the team was not going to sign a new receiver so he will look to the young receivers in camp to step up.
