BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Even with two starting receivers suffering injuries early in camp, coach Andy Reid hasn't backed off on contact. In fact, the Eagles once again have more live tackling in camp than any of the other Beast teams.

On Wednesday morning, middle linebacker Stewart Bradley wiped out tailback Eldra Buckley when he made the mistake of going airborne.

Then former Lions linebacker Ernie Sims delivered a devastating hit to Buckley after a short pass. It took Buckley 3-4 minutes to stand up again.

I have a one-on-one with Reid this afternoon, so I'll ask about his philosophy. Practice just ended and I'm chasing down LeSean McCoy.
