The Eagles officially opened their mandatory three-day minicamp Tuesday at the NovaCare Complex. Everyone reported on time, meaning there will be no drama from anyone holding out this year. That’s a pretty good omen.
Of course, there was bad news to start the day: Miles Sanders will miss the entire minicamp. There was plenty of good news to soak in, too.
Mack Hollins was practicing for the first time since hitting injured reserve last September.
Malcolm Jenkins was there and hyping up his teammates as usual. Jenkins and newcomer Andrew Sendejo were the starting safeties.
Jason Peters was mentoring Andre Dillard and showering the rookie with wisdom.
One notable absence was Nelson Agholor who was dealing with an “unspecified injury.” Greg Ward took the first-team reps in his place during 11-on-11 drills.
Perhaps the highlight of the first was a flick-flicker which saw Wentz hand it off to Jordan Howard who pitched it back to Wentz and then found J.J. Arcega-Whiteside 30 yards down the field. It was a thing of beauty, according to reporters on the scene.
Sanders and Corey Clement did not practice as they deal with hamstring and knee injuries, respectively.
