DeSean Jackson had to be carted off of the field during Saturday's practice. The initial report is a hyper-extension of the knee, although no official statement has been issued to clarify the extent of the injury.

The Eagles are deep at receiver and in general, but not deep enough to sustain more preseason casualties at any position when dealing with starters like Jackson and Bradley.

Cornelius Ingram also underwent an MRI on his knee this morning with results not having been declared.  The good news is that Eugene Bright will continue to gain experience, but that good news comes with too heavy a price.

This training camp is turning into a nightmare.  The Eagles still have a great team, but the injuries are becoming very troublesome.  What once looked like an elite team, is now starting to look like it needs some rest and is quickly slipping from the their top tier position.

They still have all of the players to rebound from the loss of Bradley and Dawkins and even Jackson and Ingram if they must, but the task at hand is becoming more formidable and much less exciting.  

It's becoming a struggle to keep our heads up as Eagles fans.
