Injury Update: Anderson Ahead Of Schedule

The Eagles concluded the third phase of the offseason without any significant injuries, head coach Andy Reid said Thursday.

The only player who began the on-field portion of the offseason as a participant who did not conclude the final minicamps on the field was rookie defensive end Vinny Curry, who is hampered by an ankle injury. That won't hinder Curry's participation in training camp at all, Reid said.

"Vinny Curry should be back out there (at training camp) and should be participating," Reid said, adding that Curry will be able to do upper body work during next week's rookie conditioning program.

Reid also provided an update on two of the three players who did not participate in any of the on-field offseason practices.

"The guys that we will keep an eye on as far as injuries go are (safety) Colt Anderson, who probably won't start training camp but we'll see how he's doing. He's ahead of schedule," said Reid. "We have (defensive tackle) Mike Patterson, who we will keep a close eye on. There's a chance that he's ready to go but he has to continue to see his doctor and test it out and see how things go from here."

Anderson is recovering from a torn ACL, while Patterson is on the mend from his offseason brain surgery that removed his AVM condition. Reid provided no update on the status of linebacker Keenan Clayton, who had recent surgery to repair a torn core muscle (sports hernia).
