BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Juqua Parker returned to practice for the first time since he was arrested by Lower Saucon Township police early this morning for possession of a small amount of marijuana. The Eagles defensive end declined to comment after the afternoon practice here at training camp. He missed the morning session because of coach Andy Reid's 30-and-over rule which allows players over the age of 30 to skip a morning practice every third day.
Parker was a passenger in the vehicle driven by Eagles tackle Todd Herremans that was pulled over. Police cited Herremans for making an illegal left turn and for driving without the headlights on of his suped-up van. He took a breathalizer test and registered a .05 blood-alcohol level. The legal driving limit in Pennsylvania is .08.
Asked if he had anything to say about the incident, Herremans offered a simple, "No."
Reid said this morning that he's waiting until a full police report before he makes a decision on Parker, who admitted to police that the marijuana was his.
