NFL  > Philadelphia Eagles  > Death, departure, devastating injuries...concern?
August 9, 2009, 07:51 PM
Lately everytime I check in on the Eagles, unfortunately the news is not so good.
Not to be disrespectful to J.J. and his family, but his presence with this team will be sorely missed. Some beloved players have departed (Dawk, Tra, Buck). Now the injury bug is biting...and biting hard. Losing the starting, and rising star LB Bradley for the season, as well as the very athletic rookie TE Ingram, who has been nothing short of impressive since he was selected (even though he was a risk w/ prior injury). Even pro bowl RG/RT Shawn Andrews seems to be having back trouble, and cannot seem to get back on the field after reporting in great spirits, and physical condition. Even a run in with the law for a player or two.
The injuries are mounting, other players who are on the PUP list need to heal up and get back to practices. The Eagles have not even played a single pre-season football game and already bodies are dropping like flies. Is this a dark cloud above a team that had a super off-season with trades, free agency, and the draft?
On paper the O-Line looked to be one of the best in the league, and has not practiced as a whole once. Key words "on paper".
The feeling going into camp was a feeling of excitement, new pieces to the puzzle, old faces resuming their posts, and away we go.
There are two days left of camp...and to be honest, I'm a bit concerned.
A long way from panic mode, but just concerned. Anyone else agree or disagree?
