Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles faced an NFL first defense for the first time in his career on Monday night and if he was nervous about it he certainly didn’t let on.

In the 27-10 victory by the Eagles over the Browns, Foles finished the first half 12/19 for 146 yards with 2 touchdowns and 1 interception for a 99.9 passer rating. At one point it appeared that Foles had scored his third touchdown in under 6 minutes but the long haul to fellow rookie Damaris Johnson just missed being a score, as Johnson failed to get his second foot in the endzone.

For those keeping count, that’s 6 touchdowns in 3 preseason games for Foles, the most of any QB in the league.

Live from Lehigh: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie the MVP of first Philadelphia Eagles practice in pads

Share

Saturday marked the first appearance of pads at Eagles training camp in Bethlehem, and the excitement on the part of both fans and players was tangible.  Philly Sports Muse ventured to Lehigh University for a first-hand look at this Eagles squad.

The fact that there is still a good deal of work to be done before the first preseason game against the Steelers in 11 days and the start of the start of the regular season on September 9th against the soon-to-be Joe Banner co-owned Cleveland Browns a month after was apparent. But so was the fact that there is a lot to be excited about with this team.

The worst news of the day was the broken collarbone suffered by wideout Riley Cooper in a play that saw him going up against Curtis Marsh. At the end of the play Cooper was clearly in pain, ultimately needing to be carted off the field. It was supposed to be a camp to start a big year for Cooper, but unfortunately his promise for this third season with the team will have to wait to reveal itself until the injury heals.

Eagles Briefs: CB Curtis Marsh takes reps with first defense

The full Eagles team had its first practice at training camp on Thursday, and there is news-aplenty from camp. A rundown of some of the news:

-Football means injuries, unfortunately. TE Brent Celek suffered a mild knee sprain, but told reporters that he should be okay. Other tight end news: There’s “mutual interest” between Jeremy Shockey and the Eagles, but seems to be a holding pattern beyond that.

-Safety O.J. Atogwe experienced his first practice with the team. He’s confident that he’ll get the Birds’ defense down quickly:

I don’t believe I’m far behind. I learn defenses quick. I’ve played in the league a long time [this is his eighth season]. Concepts remain the same. Now it’s just assimilating the terminology and doing things the way the coaches want me to do it. For every player, that takes practice.

-DeMeco Ryans has impressed his coaches with his leadership abilities already but Ryans wants more. His aim? To be “the best linebacker in the league.” As for his proven ability to lead, Ryans says, “I’m just worried about getting the football part of it right. All the other stuff will come.”
-Corner Curtis Marsh practiced with the first team defense. Though pleased, he can’t say he was surprised. Continue reading ‘Eagles Briefs: CB Curtis Marsh takes reps with first defense’
