And on the third day, the Eagles wore shells and shirts. And really, nothing else happened.
Your update from BCEagles.com:
The Boston college football team stepped up the intensity in the third day of preseason camp, wearing shells and shorts for the first time.
The wide receivers were the most boisterous group while making their way onto Shea Field. Ifeanyi Momah and Colin Larmond, Jr. led the cheers, with Larmond repeatedly shouting, "Oh yeah," in anticipation of the session.
Senior LB Mark Herzlich was held out again but was on the field today. He sported a green top over his maroon jersey and did not wear shells.
The big story is still the fact that Herzlich has yet to practice. At this point, I wouldn't expect him to return to the field this week. Here's to hoping he can use this time to get the foot on the mend.
Former Eagles Matt Tennant and Jo-Lonn Dunbar were also in attendance. The Saints play the Pats tomorrow night in their preseason opener. It's too bad next week's Patriots scrimmage vs. the Falcons is in Atlanta. It would be great if Matt Ryan could have rubbed elbows with the Eagles QBs.
Today's Conroy feature focuses on the wide receiver situation. Sounds like Ryan Day will turn to five, largely unproven WRs -- Larmond, Jr., Flutie, Momah, Lee and Lindsey. After that, the Eagles will probably turn to Coleman, Phillips or Swigert.
Finally, while I haven't heard anything on the return of Damik Scafe, The Heights is reporting that Kaleb Ramsey has returned to the team. Via Twitter:
Kaleb Ramsey has returned to the team, after being absent during the summer "for personal reasons," sources say
If true, I'll certainly take it. Depth at DT remains a big concern, and Ramsey has the most experience playing on the line of any of the 4 DTs currently on the two-deep roster. Ramsey appeared in 8 games last season and started in 3 of those games. Conor O'Neal's 8 games and Bryan Murray's 5 games were the only experience that BC returned on the D-line. Goodman Jr. is shifting from O-line to D-line and Quinn is a redshirt freshman, so neither have any game experience playing on the defensive line.
Let's hope what The Heights is reporting is true.
