PLAY OF THE DAY…During the live 11-on-11 session, both the first-team offense and first-team defense worked on the two-minute drill. The first-team offense drove right down the field on two separate occasions, thanks to a 30-yard completion from QB Donovan McNabb to WR Kevin Curtis. The drive was capped off by a 2-yard TD run by RB Brian Westbrook. Later, McNabb found WR Reggie Brown in the corner of the end zone on a 40-yard pass, despite double coverage. The first-team defense then came on the field and forced the second-team offense to go three-and-out, highlighted by a sack by CB Joselio Hanson, and a vicious hit by LB Stewart Bradley.

MONSTER TRUCK RACES…

The Eagles' training staff broke out a new piece of equipment Tuesday for use by players rehabilitating from injury: monster truck tires. The players could be seen flipping the tires end over end on the practice field. Assistant athletic trainer Gordon Williams said, "The tires are good for conditioning, and they're good for legs; especially for guys with hamstring problems." What's more, said Williams, the players were racing with the tires as "They're good for team building. We had teams of three players racing against each other. One player would flip the tire for five yards, then the next for 10, then 15." The small tires weighed 120 pounds, while the larger tires were between 250 and 300 pounds.
