The Philadelphia Eagles saw several key players return to the practice field for Tuesday's training camp session. The team didn't wear pads, but it was still an active session. Here's a quick update on the team's overall injury situation:

• The follower players returned to practice: linebacker Kiko Alonso, running back DeMarco Murray, linebacker Mychal Kendricks, safety Jerome Couplin.

Kiko Alonso: Prior to practice, Chip Kelly said the Eagles will be easing Alonso back into practice after he missed the last two weeks with a concussion. Alonso participated during position drills but I didn't notice him in team drills. Kelly said Alonso should be back to 100% by the end of the week. After practice, Alonso was seen going through some individual drills with a trainer. Alonso said he's unsure if he will play against the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday.

DeMarco Murray: The Eagles' starting running back has been suspiciously limited in practice since training camp has started but he looked like a full participant in Tuesday's session. Murray caught quite a few passes and ran a lot as well.

Mychal Kendricks: Kendricks missed some time last week but seems to be fine now.

Jerome Couplin: Couplin had an appendectomy done early in training camp. He's back now. Couplin is considered to be on the roster bubble so missing time didn't do him any favors.

• The following players did not practice: linebacker DeMeco Ryans, tight end Zach Ertz, safety Earl Wolff. Kelly said Ryans is expected to return on Wednesday. Ertz is obviously out for the rest of the preseason. Wolff is still dealing with a knee injury.
