Eagles OLB Travis Long is out for the season with a torn left ACL.

It's Long's second left-ACL tear in the last year. He'll be placed on injured reserve, ending his season. Long is a former UDFA out of Washington State.

DC Billy Davis said Eric Rowe won't be playing safety anytime soon.

The Eagles will ride with Malcom Jenkins and Walter Thurmond at the two safety positions. At corner, Rowe will compete with Nolan Carroll for outside snaps and fellow rookie JaCorey Shepherd in the slot. On paper at least, the Eagles secondary is improved off last year's Bradley Fletcher/Cary Williams/Nate Allen induced dumpster fire. Byron Maxwell's ability to remain productive despite leaving Seattle's dominant scheme will be crucial.

People who are "plugged in" with the Eagles believe the team intends to keep Tim Tebow on the final roster.

Additionally, those people say Chip Kelly intends to actually use Tebow in games. We'll believe that when we see it, especially with Kelly saying repetitive accuracy is the No. 1 thing he looks for in a quarterback. For now, Tebow is just trying to beat out Matt Barkley for the No. 3 gig behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez.

The Eagles are giving sixth-round pick JaCorey Shepherd the first crack at replacing outgoing CB Brandon Boykin.

Although he is size (5'11/199) and speed (4.65) deficient, Shepherd was one of the NCAA's top cornerbacks last season, earning the lowest "burn rate" (32.9 percent) among draft-eligible corners. "We're really, really impressed," coach Chip Kelly said. Shepherd isn't in the mix to start, but he is squarely in the hunt to cover slot receivers in the Eagles' nickel and dime defenses.

Jordan Matthews lined up at slot receiver in three-wide sets on the first day of Eagles camp Sunday.

Matthews was inside with Josh Huff and Riley Cooper on the perimeter. First-round pick Nelson Agholor should easily win one of the outside jobs before Week 1. Matthews' day-one alignment all but confirms he will indeed continue to fill a Colstonian role in Chip Kelly's offense, creating mismatches between the numbers. Matthews is a high-floor WR2 pick in his second NFL season.

According to NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks, it was "clear" at the first practice of Eagles camp that Sam Bradford -- not Mark Sanchez -- will be the team's starting quarterback in Week 1.

Bradford handled every first-team rep on the first day of training camp, while Sanchez practiced strictly with the twos. For what it's worth, Bradford went 16-of-21 passing in team drills across 27 reps, throwing one interception and no TDs. Bradford reportedly looked "rusty," as expected, but was not outplayed by Sanchez, who declined to challenge the Eagles' defense downfield.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly made it clear Sunday that contract-year ILB Mychal Kendricks will not be traded.

"You can write that down in ink," Kelly emphasized. Kendricks has been the subject of trade rumors since the Eagles traded for Kiko Alonso, signed Brad Jones, and used a third-round pick on Jordan Hicks, all of whom play the same position as Kendricks. Kendricks is a rising star, though, and the Eagles need him in 2015 with DeMeco Ryans coming off a torn Achilles' tendon.
Aug 2 - 12:09 PM

Sam Bradford (knee) has been fully cleared for 11-on-11 drills.

Bradford is finally ready to let it rip after being limited at OTAs and minicamp. A recent independent study conducted by the Eagles showed Bradford has about a 10-to-12 percent chance of re-injuring his ACL, though coach Chip Kelly won't be putting any restrictions on his new franchise QB. Bradford shed his knee brace Sunday, another sign that he's back to 100 percent. Expect Bradford to begin creeping up fantasy draft boards in short order.

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski reports Matt Barkley is "still available" for trade.

This comes as no surprise; the Eagles would probably take a sack of punctured footballs for the former fourth-round pick. Unfortunately for Philadelphia, we don't expect another team to take the bait. Being pushed by Tim Tebow for No. 3 duties, Barkley is no better than 50-50 to make the 53-man roster.
Jul 31 - 12:06 PM

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski expects first-round WR Nelson Agholor to "produce immediately" and added that Agholor "looks like the real deal."

Agholor projects as an immediate Week 1 starter in the old Jeremy Maclin role opposite Jordan Matthews. Outside of Amari Cooper, Agholor has the easiest path to targets among this year's rookie receivers. Anything less than 800-900 yards and a handful of touchdowns would come as a disappointment, and we'd consider that his floor. Agholor has a chance to be 2015's top rookie producer.
Jul 31 - 11:31 AM

Nelson Agholor said Sam Bradford (ACL) was "moving great" when the two worked out together last week.

NJ.com has already reported that Bradford is expected to be a full go when Eagles camp opens on Sunday. "To me, he looks great, he looks healthy," Agholor said. Eagles quarterbacks have thrown 59 touchdown passes in two seasons under Chip Kelly.

LeSean McCoy gave his take on how the Eagles will divvy up the backfield reps this season.

"Chip (Kelly) doesn't value the running backs in a certain way," McCoy said back in April. "DeMarco's going to do all the running. Sproles is going to do all the routes. Mathews is just in case of emergency because Murray gets hurt a lot. That's how it's going to go." Shady isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but he does have intimate knowledge of how the Eagles coaches think. We suspect 270-290 carries for Murray and 80-100 for Mathews is a fair projection.

Eagles waived/injured RB Matthew Tucker.

He faces an 8-9 month recovery timetable after suffering a torn quad. Tucker spent 2014 on Philadelphia's practice squad.
Jul 27 - 4:54 PM

The Eagles did an independent study on the likelihood of ACL re-injuries prior to acquiring Sam Bradford.

The research concluded that football players have a 10-12 percent chance of re-injury. That gave the Eagles enough confidence to trade away their starting quarterback and a second-round pick for the right to pay Bradford $13 million this season. Chip Kelly pointed to Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning as quarterbacks who have rebounded from serious injuries. Bradford is available in the 11th round of fantasy drafts because he's "injury prone," an idea Kelly does not believe in. "Everybody in the NFL is 100 percent injury prone," he said.
Jul 27 - 9:35 AM

A source tells NJ.com Sam Bradford (ACL) should be ready to go when Eagles training camp opens Aug. 2.

Bradford didn't participate in full-team drills this spring, sending media and fans into a tizzy. They failed to consider that perhaps the Eagles were just playing it safe with a guy that tore his left ACL for the second time in the 2014 preseason. NJ.com's source says Bradford is now "looking great" and is expected to participate in 11-on-11s right at the start of camp. He's a great risk/reward pick in Round 11 as the leader of an offense that will put crooked numbers on the board no matter who is under center.
