PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Training camp officially got underway for the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday as they hit the practice field for the first time.
Players and staff reported to training camp at the NovaCare Complex on Wednesday as players underwent physicals, attended meetings, and had a team dinner.
The team also had their first chance to show off a new Super Bowl Champion banner hanging outside of the team’s facility.

All eyes will remain on the handling of Carson Wentz’s rehabilitation from a torn ACL he suffered against the Los Angeles Rams last December.
After Wentz’s physical on Wednesday, the team opted not to place the 25-year-old quarterback on the physically unable to perform list, which would have kept him out of practice. Instead, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported Wentz would be kept on the active roster and limited in practice.
The good news for the team is they have a reigning Super Bowl MVP on their roster in quarterback Nick Foles to take over for Wentz while he continues to recover.
On the other side of the ball, the Eagles will be looking to find new starters at weakside linebacker and defensive end as they replace Mychal Kendricks and Vinny Curry, who were both released by the team this offseason.
