Eagles 2021 Training Camp Day 6 Notes
As teased yesterday, the Eagles finally put the pads on today for practice. Although, players were not tackling to the ground today. Nick Sirianni said that they will have ongoing conversations if they will be tackling at all during camp.
Let's get to the notes!
Davion Taylor was limited with a quadriceps injury, Shakial Taylor was limited with a lower body injury, Brandon Brooks is day-to-day with a hamstring injury, Jason Croom is day-to-day with a knee injury, Ryan Kerrigan is day-to-day with a thumb injury, Michael Walker is day-to-day with a foot injury, Nate Meadors is week-to-week with a hamstring injury, Isaac Seumalo is week-to-week with a hamstring injury and DeVonta Smith is week-to-week with a knee sprain.
DeVonta Smith obviously did not practice today, but was getting some work with the JUGS machine today before practice. Nick Sirianni did not say a timetable for Smith.
Jake Elliott went 6/6 today in warmups, hitting from 33, 36, 39, 41, 44 and 47.
After a brief trip to the medical tent, Davion Taylor headed into the Novacare Complex with a trainer. He has been dealing with a quad injury. We have no new updates at the moment.
Jalen Hurts had a pass intended for JJAW picked off by Josiah Scott. Great sticky coverage from Scott.
John Hightower made a nice contested catch down the sideline in 1on1 drills.
Steven Nelson stuffed Jalen Reagor at the Line Of Scrimmage and then batted down a ball from Hurts.
Travis Fulgham beat Darius Slay on a go route in 1on1s, then Slay got flagged for an obvious hold on their next rep against eachother.
Jordan Mailata was the starting LT today. He had a nice block on Brandon Graham. Mailata and Dillard have been rotating every day.
Boston Scott got a massive hole opened by the O Line and speeded for around 20 yards.
Hurts' accuracy has only gotten better as camp has progressed. He hit Greg Ward for about 15 yards over the middle in stride.
Milton Williams crossed Dillard in a 1on1 rep.
Tarron Jackson got around Mailata in a 1on1 rep.
Kayode Awosika held his ground against Graham in an interior rep.
Nick Sirianni got fired up at the offense after a pre-snap penalty.
Kerryon Johnson made a nice catch in the flat and started cutting up field but was "tackled" by Elijah Riley.
Zech McPhearson had another great day. First he blew up Jason Huntley on a running play that got his teammates fired up. McPhearson had FOUR pass breakups today, including one where he punched the ball out of a WRs hands and one that lead to a pick for Grayland Arnold. Zech has been playing outside corner.
No tackling to the ground today but Anthony Harris rocked Travis Fulgham in the open field. Fulgham was ok.
Josh Sweat flattened Dillard on a pass rush. Dillard has had a poor camp.
Jason Huntley has been impressive all camp long. Bobbed through the defense and went upfield for a 50 yard gain.
Jalen Hurts and Zach Ertz have had a pretty good connection the past two days, connecting on two big plays in team drills today.
Raequan Williams had two batted passes at the line against Joe Flacco today.
After struggling all day. Andre Dillard was on the sideline missing some reps. Casey Tucker filled in for him. Unsure if he was benched or nursing an injury.
