Second-round pick Nate Allen couldn’t workout because of a quad injury.¬† Reid said the injury was prolonged because Allen continued to workout for teams prior to the draft rather than shut it down like he should have done.
Defensive end Victor Abiamiri had better wake up and find out what time it is.¬† Does he know they moved up 11 spots to draft at guy at his position?
Does he know they didn’t stop there but drafted another ten guys at his position? ¬† Despite that he’s watching practice while standing by the trainer.¬† Yes as usual, he was at the morning practice standing on the side.¬† His days are numbered as far as I’m concerned.
Abiamiri stays hurt.¬† He’s the kind of guy who can get hurt on the bus ride from the hotel to the stadium.¬† I don’t think he’s going to be here when the season starts.
He’s hurt so much that maybe the Eagles media office is tired of telling us that he’s hurt.
Eagles backup right guard Max Jean-Gilles didn’t workout because he underwent lap band surgery on Tuesday. It’s make me think that they must have given him an ultimatum.¬† Lose weight or we’re going to cut you.
The big fella says that he and his wife researched it before making the decision.
“They put a tube on top of your stomach to make your stomach a little smaller,” Jean-Gilles said.¬†”I talked to some friends of the family who did it. It was a big difference in their life. They feel healthy, they feel confident in themselves. The weight comes off quick.”
Jean-Gilles had been a disappointment for the Birds at the end of the season a year ago and in the playoffs.¬† He’s rumored to weigh about 375 pounds, but there have been times when it was at or over 400 pounds.
He thinks he’s going to lose 50 to 80 pounds very quickly.¬† Jean-Gilles will be ready to practice again at the end of the month of May.
Cornelius Ingram is still recovering from the knee surgery which caused him to miss his entire rookie season.¬† He was dressed for the practice and did do some individual work.
The recently signed Marlin Jackson missed practice for the same reason.¬† He’s recovering from the second knee surgeries in as many years.¬† Of course the Birds signed him as a free agent this off season and he’s supposed to battle for the starting free safety position.
