Eagles move into next training camp schedule phase

New, comments

Still a bit off from the real stuff.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles-Minicamp Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles’ 2020 training camp schedule technically began last week with veterans fully reporting to the NovaCare Complex. But the first week was more about COVID-19 testing and virtual meetings than it was actually getting on the field together as one team.

That changes today as the Eagles move into the next phase. Here’s a description of what the Eagles will be doing from today through Tuesday, August 11 (save for a mandatory rest day on Saturday, August 8):

Strength and conditioning work. Sessions will be limited to 60 minutes in the weight room, 60 minutes of aerobic conditioning. Coaches will be allowed to lead an hour-long walk-through.

Doug Pederson obviously won’t be at the NovaCare Complex after testing positive for the coronavirus. Assistant head coach/running backs coach Duce Staley will be running the show until Pederson returns, which could be Friday, August 7 at the very earliest.

The Eagles are slowly ramping up to the next phase that’ll potentially begin on Wednesday, August 12: unpadded practices like those we see in OTAs. It’ll be four days of those and one off day before padded practices finally begin on Monday, August 17.

Of course, this all assumes there are no setbacks due to COVID outbreaks. With walk-through sessions now beginning, players and coaches and other staffers are going to be in relatively close contact. We’ll just have to wait and see how that goes.


Read on for the entire upcoming Eagles schedule leading up to Week 1.

Day off.

Roster must be down to 80 players.

MONDAY, AUGUST 17 (AND BEYOND)

Padded practices begin — teams will be allowed 14 in total but not more than three days in a row.

My current understanding is this is when reporters (myself included) will be able to start watching the practices and writing up observations. Remember: Preseason games have officially been cancelled. So ... practice notes will be more valuable than ever.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5

Rosters must be cut down from 80 to 53 before 4:00 PM Eastern.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 6

Teams can begin to build their 16-player practice squads after the waiver period ends. Six of those players can have an unlimited number of accrued seasons, meaning eligibility is less limited than ever.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 through SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12

Week 1 practices and preparation.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13

Week 1 — Eagles at Washington Football Team in Landover, Maryland.
