Eight projected starters won't make the trip to Indianapolis for Thursday's preseason game with the Colts, coach Andy Reid said today after practice. And neither will Michael Vick.

The Eagles announced today that they have signed safety Brandon Robinson, a rookie free agent from Michigan. Robinson was in camp with the Colts but was recently let go.

Wild about the Wildcat

Tuesday, August 18, 2009, 12:00 PM
Way back when I covered Penn State football, every time a reporter would ask Joe Paterno about this new-fangled spread offense, JoePa would dismiss the questioner with a wave of the hand and a, "Ahhhhhh, we ran the same thing back when I was the quarterback at Brooklyn Prep." Joe would then... Read more

McNabb and Vick: perfect together

Monday, August 17, 2009, 1:22 PM
Some people can't wrap their heads around the fact that Donovan McNabb lobbied the Eagles to sign Michael Vick, but that's the quarterback's story and he's sticking to it.

If you haven't seen Michael Vick's "60 Minutes" interview, here it is. I missed tonight's original airing, but recorded the segment conducted by "60 Minutes" contributor, James Brown. (I can't imagine Andy Rooney greeting Brown in the CBS corridors with a, "What's up, JB!")... Read more

Shawn Andrews: I ain't crazy; Westbrook back; more Vick

Saturday, August 15, 2009, 1:44 PM
The BIG lead: Shawn Andrews says he isn't crazy. Brian Westbrook is back practicing. And Michael Vick is ... well Michael Vick -- and that's OK with Kevin Kolb. Amazingly, on the day of Vick's first practice as an Eagle and Westbrook's return, Andrews managed to steal a little of the spotlight. The... Read more

Vick and Westbrook look good; Sheldon hurt

Saturday, August 15, 2009, 3:15 PM
Notes off practice: -- Michael Vick participated in individual drills and some team drills in his return to the NFL. Vick mostly split third-team repetitions with Adam DiMichele. His first toss during installs was a little wobbler over the middle to Danny Amendola. He looked better during one-on-ones... Read more

Vick: Part of solution, not problem

Friday, August 14, 2009, 12:53 PM
This was not your standard free-agent signing introductory press conference. The Eagles did not have a jersey with the No. 7 hung in front of the newly-acquired Michael Vick. There weren't many questions about football. And normally there aren't protestors picketing the acquisition of a quarterback... Read more
