Kendricks Runs With Ones; Sproles Practices
The Eagles are getting closer to full strength.
The pads were on as the team gathered inside the bubble at the NovaCare Complex Wednesday. Mychal Kendricks, Darren Sproles, Jason Kelce and Evan Mathis were all suited up and took part in individual drills during the portion of training open to the media.
Kendricks was paired with DeMeco Ryans during linebacker drills, a positive sign as he preps to play for the first time since suffering a calf strain Week 2 against the Colts.
Sproles was moving pretty well. He did some running and cutting at about half-speed and ran routes. Other than a little flexing of his left leg in-between plays, he seemed OK.
Mathis practiced for the first time since injuring his MCL against the Jaguars in the opener. He is not eligible to play until November 10 against Carolina. This week, Mathis suggested Kelce could be ready for the Houston game next Sunday. While Kelce is not ready to commit to that, he got some work in for the second straight day.
The only player who sat out Wednesday was Brad Smith (abdomen).
