While Philadelphia Eagles OTA practices don't open to the media until tomorrow on Thursday, May 28, several other teams have already begun. Those clubs include the Buffalo Bills and the Washington Redskins, where two former Eagles players are already missing from practice.

In Buffalo, veteran Fred Jackson received first team reps at running back instead of LeSean McCoy. According to Bills head coach Rex Ryan, McCoy sat out due to a "little thing in his neck." Ryan said the injury isn't serious. Philadelphia traded away in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso earlier this offseason.

As for Jackson, his absence from Washington doesn't seem to be injury related. The former Eagles pass catcher was seen hanging out court side at the Cleveland Cavaliers game last night. Jackson even snapped a picture of him hanging out with LeBron James, which is pretty funny because Jackson was trashing him on Instagram just last year.

Neither of these absences are a big deal, especially at this point in the offseason. But it's at least a little funny to see the players Chip Kelly got rid of (at least partially) due to culture reasons not practicing yet.

In current Eagles news, 2015 first round pick Nelson Agholor is showing up to practice early every day.
