Eagles training camp 2013: Day 2 recap of full team practices - James Kempski, Philly.com
Michael Vick is the only QB to have hit the "bug wing" guys that pose as faux defensive linemen trying to bat down passes. Vick hit them several times in OTAs and minicamp. Today, Matt Barkley joined Vick in "Club Bug Wing." Barkley not only hit a bug wing guy, but he also had a pass deflected at the line by Chris McCoy. McCoy, by the way, has looked good so far in pass coverage from his OLB spot.
Jeremy Maclin Tears ACL, Likely Out for the Season - Andrew Kulp, The 700 Level

Eagles QB tracker: Foles strong again on Day 2 - John Gonzalez, CSN Philly
By CSNPhilly.com’s unofficial count, Foles completed 22 of 24 passes. He took 40 total reps, 24 with the first team and 16 with the second team. During seven-on-seven drills, Foles unleashed a long pass down the right sideline that was hauled in by DeSean Jackson for a big gain. As the Eagles set up for the next play, some fans in the stands chanted Foles' name.
