Eagles DE Derek Barnett (hernia) was a full participant at OTAs.

Barnett had a sports hernia operation shortly after Super Bowl LII but has already recovered. The 2017 first-rounder earned PFF's No. 37 grade among 4-3 defensive ends last season.

Darren Sproles (knee) did not attend voluntary OTAs last week.

Sproles instead opted to work out at his home in California. The 34-year-old is coming off a torn ACL but appears to be doing well in his recovery. When healthy, Sproles should occupy his usual role as a change-of-pace/receiving back.

Corey Clement wants "more touches, more carries, more catches out of the backfield this year."

Clement was a great find as an UDFA by GM Howie Roseman last year, and he had arguably the biggest game of the season in the Super Bowl win over the Patriots. Clement averaged just 4.2 carries per game as a rookie and was featured more in the pass game. It's unclear how the Eagles will split up work in 2018, especially with the return of Darren Sproles, but this is a situation to watch in the summer. Clement figures to be the No. 2 behind Jay Ajayi.

NFL.com's Mike Silver reports the Browns offered the Eagles the No. 35 overall pick for Nick Foles before eventually trading for Tyrod Taylor.

Per Silver, the Eagles consulted Foles, who said he wished to remain in Philadelphia. The sides later reached a reworked contract that gave Foles 2018 incentives and the option to leave in 2019. It's nice to see a team do right by a player, but the Eagles should have sold high on their Super Bowl hero. As it is, he's excellent quarterback insurance as Carson Wentz completes his recovery from a torn ACL.

Eagles LB Paul Worrilow has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the 2018 season.

Worrilow was a mere depth signing in April, but his loss is a blow for a team that just released Mychal Kendricks on Tuesday. Worrilow, who was a part-time player for the Lions last season, turned 28 earlier this month. The Eagles should be in the market for linebacker help.

Eagles LB Paul Worrilow was carted off the field with an apparent knee injury during Tuesday's practice.

Worrilow's leg was placed in an air cast on the field before he was carted off. We do not know for sure, but it looks like he suffered a serious injury. Worrilow was signed to a one-year deal in April.

Eagles LT Jason Peters (knee) is participating in OTAs.

Peters tore his ACL and MCL last October. It is a shockingly quick return, especially for a 36-year-old. Peters will likely be limited during the offseason program, but he appears on track to be 100 percent well before Week 1.

Carson Wentz (ACL, LCL surgery) threw during individual drills at OTAs.

Wentz said he has not been medically cleared to practice, but he did plan to be involved during OTAs. He looked good moving around before practice, and he looked comfortable throwing the ball during individual drills. At this point, he appears on track for Week 1.

Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media named Wendell Smallwood as one of several Eagles on the roster bubble.

Smallwood filled a change-of-pace role for the Eagles early last year but watched his playing time evaporate after the team acquired Jay Ajayi at the trade deadline. In a crowded backfield featuring Ajayi, Corey Clement and Darren Sproles, Shorr-Parks believes Smallwood faces a "steep uphill battle" to make the team out of training camp. Taylor Hart, Matt Jones, Donnel Pumphrey, Richard Rodgers, Nate Sudfield, Bryce Treggs, Chance Warmack and Markus Wheaton were also listed on Shorr-Parks' roster bubble.

According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media, Donnel Pumphrey faces an "uphill battle" to keep his Eagles roster spot.

He spent last season on injured reserve following a disappointing training camp. Pumphrey has reportedly bulked up since last year after weighing only 176 pounds as a rookie. That should help, though Pumphrey remains a long shot to keep his roster spot with Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement and Darren Sproles all ahead of him on the team's running back depth chart.

Eagles LE Brandon Graham (ankle) is expected to report to the team's facility for the start of OTAs on Monday.

Graham won't actually practice—he underwent right ankle surgery on May 1 and remains in a walking boot—but it's a good sign that he plans on being around the team, even as he seeks an extension. The Eagles are hoping Graham will be ready for the start of training camp in two months. The 30-year-old defensive end is entering the final year of a four-year, $26 million contract.

Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media said it would "not be surprising at all" if Darren Sproles led the Eagles in running back snaps this season.

He had been the Eagles' starter before his injury last year and even with Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement returning, Shorr-Parks still expects Sproles to occupy a major role in 2018. "The Eagles are not bringing him back for a feel-good story," said Shorr-Parks. "They are bringing him back because they plan on using him." The 34-year-old compiled 865 yards from scrimmage on 146 touches during the 2016 campaign and makes for a sensible late-round flyer in fantasy.

Eagles FS Chris Maragos (knee) could be ready for training camp.

Maragos had surgery to repair a torn PCL in October. He's been setback-free in his rehab and looks on track for the start of camp. A core special teamer, Maragos is set to make $1.75 million in 2018.

Eagles MLB Jordan Hicks (Achilles) remains without a timetable to return.

Hicks is ahead of schedule, but his status for training camp is still up in the air. After missing the final nine games of 2017 and the entire postseason, the Eagles plan to move him slowly. Hicks has durability concerns, but should return to an every-down role when healthy.

Eagles LE Brandon Graham is recovering from right ankle surgery.

Graham went under the knife on May 1. It's a clean-up operation from a high-ankle sprain Graham suffered last Week 16. Graham missed only Week 17 before suiting up for the playoffs. There is "some hope" he could participate in minicamp, but the Eagles appear to be targeting training camp for Graham's return. Headed into a contract year, Graham notched a career-high 9.5 sacks last season on a modest 662 snaps. He turned 30 last month.
