We took a look at the Eagles this morning and now we have your evening update from Philly..
- Eagles outside linebacker Travis Long tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee a year after suffering the same injury, NFL sources told Jeff McLane of Philadelphia Inquirer. The Eagles, who have since confirmed the news, were already light at outside linebacker. Long was expected to compete for the third spot behind starters Connor Barwin and Brandon Graham. In a recent interview, Long said that he nearly retired in the past due to his string of injuries.
- Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com (on Twitter) expects the Eagles to go pick up a veteran outside linebacker after cutdown day rather than moving Kiko Alonso or Mychal Kendricks outside.
- Eagles exec (and former GM) Howie Roseman was on the sideline watching practice today, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer tweets. Roseman, by most accounts, wasn’t on the field in the spring after some organizational reshuffling transferred most of his power to coach Chip Kelly.
- John Gonzalez of CSNPhilly.com wonders if Chip Kelly‘s decisions hurting the Eagles‘ depth. Over the weekend, Kelly shipped cornerback Brandon Boykin to the Steelers and it’s not clear who will be able to step up and take his place. Kelly also bounced other players this offseason including Evan Mathis and Todd Herremans.
