Eagles: Coach Reid Says Team Ready For Thursday’s Preseason Opener

BETHLEHEM, Pa. (CBS) – The Eagles wrapped up preparations at Lehigh Wednesday for their preseason opener Thursday night against the Ravens at Lincoln Financial Field.

Head coach Andy Reid says his top unit will play in the first quarter, and even though it’s only the preseason Reid expects his players will be ready to perform at a high level.

“I think for the short period of time that they’re in, they’re going hard,” Reid told reporters.  “They know they don’t have a lot of plays.”

Quarterback Vince Young will lead the second unit out for the second quarter, with the rest of the players on the roster set to play in the second half.
