BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- The injuries continue to pile up at Eagles training camp as a number of players left the afternoon session on a hot August day.

The most significant injury appeared to be a hamstring pull that sent Jamar Chaney into the locker room. The linebacker had just earned a spot up on the first team nickel defense, but now he appears headed to the Eagles' growing injury list.

Chaney will have an MRI, the Eagles said. Rookie Mychal Kendricks, the strong-side starting linebacker, took Chaney's place in the nickel defense. 

Tackle Todd Herremans missed all of practice with a right shoulder injury. Rookie Dennis Kelly took his place at right tackle.

Video: Cole, Babin sit out practice

Safety O.J. Atogwe left practice early with a right groin injury. Wide receiver Jamel Hamler left with a right hamstring injury. Running back LeSean McCoy and safety Nate Allen left practice early with cramps.

The Eagles were already down several players, especially on the defensive line. Defensive ends Jason Babin (calf) and Trent Cole (shoulder) are out, as are defensive tackles Cullen Jenkins (hamstring) and Mike Patterson (brain surgery). Tight end Brent Celek (knee) appears to be close to returning, however.

The Eagles did work out a defensive end today -- Morkeith Brown from Temple.

There was a live hitting session scheduled for the end of practice, but coach Andy Reid must have decided to ease off his players in light of the injuries.
