Injuries mount at Eagles camp

New, comments

Several notable players got nicked up yesterday and missed practice.

Left tackle Jason Peters, the Eagles' prize acquisition of the off-season, spent practice working with trainer Rick Burkholder and a contingent of other injured teammates. That group included cornerback Asante Samuel, who had a hamstring spasm during yesterday morning's conditioning test, and defensive tackle Trevor Laws, who arrived at camp with a sore hamstring.

Right tackle Shawn Andrews, meanwhile, didn't even make it to the practice field after his surgically repaired back tightened up on him during a team meeting following the conditioning run.

It seemed like mostly spasms and sore hamstrings after conditioning drills, not contact drills. Pretty common stuff for a team getting back to serious workouts, still... everyone wants to see the big guys on the field. Plus, hamstring injuries always weird. It could nag a guy for weeks, or he could be 100% by later that afternoon.

Good fanshot on the subject from jaws 1385.
