There have been some questions about whether several guys are healthy enough to participate in this weekend's first mandatory minicamp. In a radio interview yesterday Tom Heckert said that tight shirted Jack Ikegwuonu, who spent all of last year on IR, is cleared to practice 100% in this minicamp and will be participating in the full practices.

There has been some rumors that Cornelius Ingram may be still be suffering effects from his knee injury last year. Some rumors even suggested that he may need a second surgery. However, Ingram himself said yesterday that he feels fine and will be participating in the full practice. 

Another thing Ingram said which I found very interesting was when he was asked by the hosts in a radio interview if he'd heard how passionate Philly fans could be? He said that during his private visit the coaches said people will cheer you one minute, but if you drop a pass they'll get you quick. Ingram laughed about it, but i can't help but think whether it was a test?

I wonder if they said it to see how he'd react? An important part of the evaluation process has to be finding out whether a guy has thick enough skin to play in this town.
