The Shawn Andrews situation could be resolved by the end of this afternoon's practice at Lehigh University.

Rich Moran, the agent for the Eagles' two-time Pro Bowl guard, said Andrews was in the process of talking to Eagles officials about his situation and that an announcement could be made after the 2:45 p.m. practice.

Andrews has missed the first 12 days and 18 full-squad workouts of training camp because of "personal issues." There has been speculation, but no public statement from the team about why Andrews has been absent. Coach Andy Reid reiterated this morning that Andrews' absence has been unexcused. The Eagles have not said if they were going to fine Andrews for his missed time.

Reid said he had spoken recently with Andrews, but he wasn't any more comfortable with the situation.

"I'll feel comfortable when he's  here," Reid said. "He has to take care of his business and get himself right and get back here."

The coach also lauded reserve Max Jean Gilles for his work at right guard during Andrews' absence.

"The other guy is getting an opportunity to play and he's doing a good job with it," Reid said.
