Eagles Injury Update: Cooper, Polk sidelined
Share This Post

The Eagles avoided major injuries after three days of training camp, but they aren’t 100 percent injury-free.

Wide receiver Riley Cooper, running back Chris Polk and center Julian Vandervelde are missing practice Wednesday. Cooper is dealing with a foot injury, coach Chip Kelly said, while Polk is nursing a hamstring tweak and Vandervelde is sidelined with a sore back.

Kelly said none of the injuries is considered major and all could be back “shortly.” Of the three, only Cooper is a starter.

Jeff Maehl has taken snaps in Cooper’s absence.

A committee of backs has replaced Polk on various sub teams. David Molk has taken over at center for Vandervelde.

Nose tackle Bennie Logan was in a helmet and appears to be full-go after dealing with a hamstring issue. His spot was held down mostly by Damion Square and rookie Beau Allen.
