Yesterday, for the second day in a row, Jason Peters took part in non-contact drills; it looks like his quad spasms aren't too serious. He will probably figure into the full-contact drills sometime later this week.

Meanwhile, Shawn Andrews watched his teammates from the sideline, but did not practice or did not offer a time line as to when he will practice. According to a poll taken on, 50.6% of those polled consider Andrews' health problems a major concern and question whether he can stay healthy.

"I'm just fighting to get back on the field," Andrews said after the annual Eagles "Flight Night!" at the Linc yesterday. To questions concerning his return, he replied simply, "Lord willing."

In other news, Stewart Bradley and Ellis Hobbs both sustained injuries during Eagles "Flight Night!". Via the official Eagles website:

The two players await word on their official status. Bradley left with a knee injury and will have an MRI tomorrow. Ellis Hobbs left with a stinger, and will also get more information tomorrow.

So far, the training camp injury bug has affected only starters—and that is never a good sign. One blogger even predicts that injuries may derail the Eagles' season.

One thing the Eagles can control, however, is the signing of Jeremy Maclin. As of now, he and Michael Crabtree are the only rookie wide receivers still unsigned (Percy Harvin, Hakeem Nicks, and Kenny Britt all signed within a 36-hour period). There are still rumors that a deal is imminent, but Maclin is nevertheless far behind in learning the Eagles offense.
