The Eagles got a bit of good news today as Colt Anderson and Jason Babin were a full participants in practice. That Babin was back is not a huge surprise as he's always been targeted to be back by week one as he spent the preseason rehabbing from a calf injury. It may take him a bit to get back to full game speed, but the Eagles depth at DE is ridiculous, he should have whatever time he needs.

Babin told reporters that he's "98.9%"

Colt Anderson is a bit of a surprise to see back as he was on PUP prior to the roster cut down day. But he says he is feeling good after his knee surgery and has not been ruled out of Sunday's opener against the Browns.

"I could play; I could not," Anderson said. "It's all still up in the air."

Casey Matthews also practiced today, although Andy Reid previously said he didn't expect him to be ready for week one. It will be worth keeping an eye on his status this week.
