Two players who did not practice were Nnamdi Asomugha and Trent Cole, who both missed the morning session with injuries. Asomugha did not practice due to upper leg inflammation. Cole did not price because of an elbow injury. Head Coach Andy Reid said that the team did not consider either to be serious, and that Cole could be back at practice tomorrow. Asomugha could take a day or two, said Reid.
Nate Allen, the teams starting safety, also did not practice. Allen being held from practice was more precautionary then anything else, said Coach Reid. It’s safe to say that the wet surface had something to do with Allen not being out their, as multiple Eagles slipped early on due to last nights rain.
To finish off the injury news on the day, Reid said that Jeremy Maclin is still undergoing tests and had no timetable for his return. It is looking more and more like their is a chance Maclin may begin the season in street clothes or on the PUP. Their was also no update on Mike Patterson, who according to reports is looking for other medical opinions on whether he has AVM or not.
