Cole Day-To-Day With Shoulder Injury

Head coach Andy Reid announced after Wednesday's walk thru that defensive end Trent Cole injured his AC (shoulder) joint in Monday's practice and is listed as day-to-day.

"We'll see how many days he's out," Reid said. "I can't give you an actual timeline."

Both of the Eagles' starting Pro Bowl defensive ends are now sidelined, as Jason Babin recovers from a calf sprain.

"I think with injuries in this day and age of football, you've got to be patient," Reid said. "You don't want to put the player in a bind. You think about them first and then the practices. You don't want to put them in a position where they get hurt worse than what they already are."

Reid did have some good news on the injury front. Tight end Brent Celek, who has been sidelined since last Thursday with a knee sprain, did some conditioning work on an adjacent field during the morning walk thru session. Reid said that the only limitation with Celek is that he can't cut.

"He's getting better, but he's not quite ready to go today," Reid said. "We'll see here in the next couple days how he improves. He's taken big steps here today."

Safety Phillip Thomas is still sidelined as he recovers from a hamstring injury.
