Baskett: "I'm good"; Brady to play

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Hank Baskett hyper-extended his right knee today at Eagles practice. That's all, folks. After practice, Baskett walked to his car with his knee heavily bandaged. Asked if he was OK, Baskett responded, "Yeah, I'm good."

So let's all just calm down before we start jumping off cliffs, and writing/blogging/tweeting about his injury before we really know the extent of his injury.

In other injury news, Kevin Kolb sat out today's practice, but the backup quarterback said that he should be back soon. Kolb strained the MCL in his right knee yesterday.

"I feel real good," Kolb said. "Couple of days I'll be ready to rock."

Kolb isn't going to play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots. The Eagles have him listed as day-to-day. The newly-acquired Matt Nagy suited up as the third-string quarterback today and had some nice throws. He also has a nice story to tell. We'll relay it to you in tomorrow's paper.

One note: Former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil was at camp today. And, no, he didn't cry about all the Eagles injuries.

Back with more.

UPDATE: For those of you planning to attend Thurday's game, you'll probably get to see a little of Tom Brady. The Patriots quarterback told reporters at New England's camp that he's expecting to play. Brady missed almost all of last season after he tore up his knee in the season opener.
