Eagles take a breather after explosive practice at the Linc: Training Camp takeaways


After an evening under the LFF lights, the Eagles returned to the NovaCare Complex without pads and ran through their shortest workout of the program so far. Here’s everything you need to know:


There’s still no update on Joe Ostman who was carted off the field last night. The young defensive end was rapidly becoming a lock to make the roster before he went down with an apparent knee injury. Shelton Gibson also limped off the field and wouldn’t return with what’s believed to be an ankle injury. RB Boston Scott is out with an ankle injury but it’s not seen as anything overly worrying.

Jason Kelce was reportedly given the day off again today, while Paul Worrilow was back at practice, but didn’t have a helmet on.

Gerry rises up

With Kamu Grugier-Hill injured, the Eagles have been looking to #47, Nate Gerry, to fill the void. Nigel Bradham is still yet to partake in team drills which leaves a huge opportunity to guys like Zach Brown and L.J Fort to really take full advantage of the exposure.

Wentz to DJax

Is it a practice recap if we don’t mention Carson Wentz throwing dimes to DeSean Jackson? The answer is no. So, with the aim of giving the reader what they want to see, da daaaaah.

Clement health

On another positive note, it’s great to see Corey Clement running at full speed once again after a grueling offseason of recovery. The running back depth chart is still in complete flux right now and if Clement can prove he still packs the same punch that he hit with in 2017, he should be able to secure a roster spot.

The Eagles will likely go full steam ahead tomorrow before a day off on Wednesday, Christmas Eve if you will. When they wake up on Thursday, it will be the day of the team’s first preseason game.
