Eagles injuries

The report comes from Marc Narducci, Inquirer Staff Writer.

The Eagles began their Friday morning practice at Lehigh University with just one of their starting wide receivers and finished with none. Terrell Owens, who missed Thursday afternoon’s practice with left groin inflammation, didn’t workout Friday morning. He has been listed as day to day.

During the morning session, Todd Pinkston went down with what the team described as an Achilles injury. Pinkston was scheduled to get an MRI.

In addition, running back Correll Buckhalter left practice early with a sore knee. Buckhalter walked off on his own and the extent of the injury was not immediately known.

The fact that Buckhalter was having trouble with his knee is of obvious concern. He has missed two of the previous three seasons with knee injuries, including last year. Buckhalter had been running well in camp.

With Brian Westbrook holding out for the fifth day, the Eagles will be short at running back if Buckhalter is lost for an extended period.

The other running backs in camp are Renho Mahe, rookie Ryan Moats of Louisiana Tech and Bruce Perry, the former star at Philadelphia’s George Washington High who missed his rookie season last year with a shoulder injury.
