Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley took a timeout from training camp to prepare for an event of far greatest consequence than the NFL season.

Any skills that can aid survival in a world of the undead will be 10x more useful on a football field; a place where being tackled by the opposition does not result in becoming one of them.
