Eagles in the a.m. -- Aug. 17

QUESTION OF THE DAY

Onto the links...

FROM THE INQUIRER

- Tra Thomas called the greatest day of his football career coming to the Eagles, where he found a life and a father figure, writes Bob Ford: 

Reid didn't come along until Thomas' second season, tightening up a ship that, according to Thomas, charted a pretty loose course in the last season under Rhodes. All of a sudden there was discipline and accountability, and Thomas was made for that kind of system.

- There are two ways to view Mike Kafka's injury, writes Jeff McLane:

Figuring out which way the Eagles view his injury will give a much clearer picture of their ultimate plans at backup quarterback.

- Nnamdi Asomugha was at practice -- briefly -- along with some other notes:

The Eagles cornerback, however, did the bare minimum on Thursday and left before the more strenuous part of practice began. The team said Asomugha left early because of a sore neck that Eagles coach Andy Reid said Tuesday came from the whiplash of the hit.
