Bradley, Ingram On Track To Practice Next Week

Head coach Andy Reid updated the injury situation for next weekend's post-draft mini-camps after the draft concluded Saturday evening.

Linebacker Stewart Bradley and tight end Cornelius Ingram, who each missed the 2009 season with a torn ACL, should "be able to go," according to Reid.

"Stew, we're going to evaluate. Right now, it looks like he's going to be able to go," Reid said. "Ingram should be able to go, we just have to monitor him."

Two members of the secondary who were both on injured reserve by the end of last season - cornerback Ellis Hobbs and defensive back Marlin Jackson - will be worked in more slowly.

"We're just going to take it real slow with Ellis," Reid said of the veteran who missed the second half of the season with a neck injury.

Jackson, a member of the Indianapolis Colts in 2009, suffered an ACL injury last year for the second consecutive season. When he signed a two-year deal with the Eagles on March 10, Jackson said that he would be full-go by training camp.

"Marlin won't do much, but he'll do a few things out there (next weekend)," Reid said.

Knee injuries will keep center Jamaal Jackson and defensive end Victor Abiamiri from participating in the post-draft mini-camp. Abiamiri underwent a knee procedure in the off-season, but Reid said that it wasn't ACL related. Jackson, however, tore his ACL in the Dec. 27 game against Denver. Note that among the 13 players drafted by the Eagles not one was an offensive lineman.

"He's working extremely hard and coming along at a good pace," Reid said of Jackson's recovery. "But I would also say that we have confidence in some of the other guys playing the position that they can do a good job."

Nick Cole ended last season as the starting center in Jackson's absence. Mike McGlynn, a fourth-round pick in 2008, will also work in with Cole along with A.Q. Shipley and Dallas Reynolds.
