Alonso Spotted; Murray, Kendricks, Ertz and Ryans Not Practicing

DeMarcoMurray15Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso has been missing since he suffered a concussion at the last open practice at Lincoln Financial Field. He was spotted at the Nova Care Complex.

The first news that broke at the beginning of the Eagles practice was the fact that DeMarco Murray, Zach Ertz, Mychal Kendricks and DeMeco Ryans weren’t practicing today.  We’ll find out the reasons afterward, but they’re not in uniform with the rest of the team.

I agree with Eliot Shorr-Parks that they’re probably resting Murray.  They know what he can do, so they’re going to keep him rested until they need the work done, which is during the regular season.

It wasn’t a great day for Sam Bradford today.  I thought Mark Sanchez might have gotten the better of him today.  Sanchez made quite a few throws downfield.

Andrew Gardner may be in position to take the starting right guard spot.  He’ll likely be starting on Sunday, since he’s been consistently getting the first team reps this week.  They’re anxious for one of these guys to step up and take the position.

It was a nice throw by Sanchez because he threw it out there and made Sproles use his speed to go get it.   They’ve been working on the wheel route quite a bit during this training camp, so don’t be surprised when you see it during the season.

Rookie Eric Rowe is a specimen, who needs to be on the field.  He is too talented to be sitting on the bench.  I think they’re going to have him coming in the games as the outside corner and letting Nolan Carroll slide inside at the nickel spot.

  • Nice Reports..

    I am concerned about the Health of the ILB’s with Alonso & Kendricks who both seem they can’t stay healthy for long stretches of time..
    Ryans is being brought back cautiously which is understandable, but both Alonso & Kendricks need to get their timing and reps down down..

    I do agree that Andrew Gardner will get the Start at RG probably this and next Pre-Season Game until Moffitt gets up to speed with conditionin and the playbook.. It Appears Matt Tobin is falling further and further behind on the depth charts..
    I also agree that Eric Rowe is too Talented to not have out on the Field with teh Eagles relatively think Secondary Corps

    I believe he Plays either Outside CB while Carroll shifts to the Slot CB in Nickel Packages b or maybe Rowe is moves to Safety Full Time and it’s Walter Thurmond who comes in as Slot CB which is his normal position but this would have to be done starting next week if this were to happen as Rowe would need as many Reps at Safety as possible with Ear Wolff can’t seem to remain on the field..
