Injuries: Anderson Starts On PUP

In addition to the news that Mike Patterson will be held out of this year's Training Camp, head coach Andy Reid addressed the rest of the Eagles' injury report in his opening press conference Sunday afternoon.

Only two other players will not be ready to participate once practices get underway, Reid said. Safety Colt Anderson, who suffered a torn ACL in Week 13 last season, will begin Training Camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

"He's doing very well right now," Reid said. "He's very close and we'll just see how he continues to progress. Effort has not been the issue there, as you'd expect."

Meanwhile, left tackle Jason Peters begins Training Camp on the reserve/Non-Football injury list after tearing his Achilles twice this offseason. Reid said Peters is "a longshot" to play in 2012, but "it's too early to rule him out."

"He will be up here and working out, doing the things that he can do," Reid said. "Again, he's doing well, it's just too early in the process to tell where and how long exactly this will take."

Several players who had missed various amounts of time with injuries during minicamps and Organized Team Activities will be expected to start Training Camp ready to go.

Linebacker Keenan Clayton missed all of the spring practices following sports hernia surgery, but "should be okay," Reid said. Clayton will also be part of the rookie/selected veterans portion of Training Camp, which begins Monday morning.

Also healed and ready to go are linebacker Jamar Chaney, linebacker Mychal Kendricks, tight end Brent Celek, linebacker Moise Fokou and center Jason Kelce. Rookie defensive end Vinny Curry suffered a high ankle sprain late in minicamps, but also will be ready for practice.

"Vinny Curry will be out here," said Reid. "He had the high ankle sprain, he's at about eight weeks right now from that high ankle sprain. He's doing well, so you'll see him out here tomorrow. He's doing okay."
