09:39 AM ET 08.05 | Andy Reid was not in attendance to start the morning walkthrough. The team gathered on one of the practice fields at the beginning of the session and knelt down in prayer. An Eagles spokesman did not reveal much, other than to say that Reid is fine. Players declined comment coming off the field. Kurt Coleman put the following Tweet out before practice: "Prayers and condolences go out. May God protect us and serve us in this time of need."

Andy was locked in his room with a bucket of KFC.

Didn't Reid's kids have some difficulty with drug use? I seem to remember they were in legal trouble as well. Not sure what it is, but I hope whatever it is gets better for him.

Press got it wrong again. They were praying for Reid to be absent.

Yes both his kids went to jail. One for drugs and one for weapons related charges.

Did they put the kids in the jail located in the basement of Lincoln Financial Field?

I don;t think they were aware of the circumstances.

I wasn't aware. Truly a tragedy.

A sad day for the Eagles and Andy's family.

Sometimes it can be very tough for the children of high profile parents. They have a hard time finding an identity of their own. Similar thing happened to Tony Dungy. It is very sad and must be very hard on the parent, especially a father, to lose a son.

Regardless, it is just another look into the sad state of the human race. A glance at the comment section of ANY story on ANY outlet is proof we are in the toilet with no hope for any future whatsoever.

Addictions have no boundaries..poor, rich, blue collar, white collar, privileged or not, the whole family struggles along with the addict. My condolences to the Reid family.

August 5, 2012  10:33 AM ET

Terrible news. Condolences to Reid and the Eagles.

August 5, 2012  10:35 AM ET

Sad, truly sad.

Condolences to the Reid family. There's football and then there is the important stuff.
