PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles are getting ready to break camp at Lehigh.
Workouts will be completed on Tuesday, and the team will break camp on Wednesday. Andy Reid was happy with his team’s work ethic though a grueling three and-a-half weeks of work.
“They busted their tail,” said Reid. “People weren’t trying to get out of practice or look for the easy way out of a drill. They pushed themselves through and got better.”
Michael Vick was happy to see his time at Lehigh come to an end and the Eagles quarterback was proud of the way he and his teammates progressed throughout the workouts.
“It was everything that we thought it was going to be,” Vick said. “We got through it and I think it’s going to make us a better football team down the road. I’m excited all of the guys made it through and we’re definitely excited to get out of here.”
Reid also updated the status of Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who was injured at practice on Monday after a collision with Nate Allen.
“Nnamdi has whiplash-type symptoms and a split lip,” said Reid. “He didn’t have a concussion. He’s been tested and everything is okay.”
Asomugha sat out practice on Tuesday and Reid said his injury is day-to-day.
The Eagles resume workouts in South Philadelphia on Thursday.
