On the heels of Marlin Jackson’s season/career-ending Achilles tendon tear, the Eagles couldn’t be happy to see other starting players be helped off the field and/or miss time at this week’s voluntary OTAs due to injuries.
The good news is that none appear to be serious.
Stewart Bradley tweaked a calf muscle on Wednesday, while LeSean “Shady” McCoy dinged his ankle. Neither appears to be anything remotely long-term, especially since both players have seven weeks until training camp.
Starting offensive guard Todd Herremans injured foot, which required surgey a year ago, was the most serious. However, after seeing a foot specialist today, his prognosis seems positive.
Herremans himself took the trip to the doctor in stride.
“Just got back to Philly,” he tweeted after returning from the specialist in Charlotte. “All is well… except the plane smells like fart.”
Thanks for sharing that tidbit, Todd.
Herremans wasn’t the only one to alleviate fans’ fears via Twitter the last two days.
“All is well,” Bradley tweeted on Wednesday after sustaining his injury. On Thursday, he shook off the injury enough to participate in the team’s annual playground building project.
“Just finished the playground build!” he tweeted. “Great except for the sunburn ha ha.”
