   The Eagles announced that guard Shawn Andrews has reported to the team's Lehigh University training camp. He apparently arrived sometime early Sunday afternoon. It's still unclear when Andrews, who is battling depression and has missed the first three weeks of camp, will practice with the team.

   ``Still no idea,'' said club spokesman Derek Boyko. ``We're taking it day by day here.''

   Andrews was taken off the team's reserve-did not report list and was placed on the active-physically unable to perform list. He will be taken off the list when he returns to practice. To make room on the team's 80-man training camp roster, the Eagles released offensive lineman Franklin Dunbar, who was waived-injured with a lower back injury.

   Earlier in the day, head coach Andy Reid said Andrews would not practice with the team on Monday.

   ``I just want to sit down and talk with him face to face and make sure everything's set up for him here so he can be successful,'' Reid said. ``I'm going to gradually feed him back in. But I want to see how he's doing. That's my primary focus right now.

   ``I'm sure there's some apprehension there. But I know he wants to get back going, get back with the guys.''

   Here is more from Reid on the Andrews situation.

   Also, cornerback Asante Samuel, who returned to practice Sunday morning after missing the last three weeks with a hamstring injury, then took himself out an hour and 15 minutes in when he appeared to tweak the injury, did participate in the Eagles' afternoon workout Sunday. But because of poor weather, it was conducted indoors at about one-quarter speed.
