The Eagles sent out their first injury report of the week and the only real surprise was that Steve Smith was a full participant. That means he took all the snaps he was scheduled to and should be on track to play this weekend. Andy Reid has previously expressed some doubt about Smith being ready, but his being a full participant in practice is a pretty good sign. Reid said today that Smith has been running with the ones and that he wants to see how he feels at the end of the week
"He's going to go through this week, he's been taking reps with the first group in a rotation there, so I'm just going to see how he works out this week." Reid said. "I know he wants to play, and feels like he's ready. We'll just see how everything goes."
Practicing full go with the first team? We should all be very encouraged to hear that. The only player who did not practice today was Vince Young, who is still dealing with a hamstring strain. Reid says he's day to day and getting better.
"He's getting better; he's running on it in the pool, it's really just a day-to-day thing right now. Making great progress, working his tail off, he's been in there since he had the injury every day and long hours"
