Reid isn’t at Eagles practice

Andy Reid AP

Eagles coach Andy Reid wasn’t present at the beginning of Sunday morning’s training-camp practice, according to Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com.  Coupled with the fact that the team gathered at the start of the session and knelt down in prayer, concerns immediately arose regarding the health of the head coach.

According to McManus, an Eagles spokesman said Reid “is fine,” and players declined comment while leaving the field.  The spokesman said Reid is dealing with a “personal issue.”

Safety Kurt Coleman posted the following on Twitter before practice:  “Prayers and condolences go out.  May God protect us and serve us in this time of need.”

It all seems a little ominous, but since the Eagles aren’t talking we’ll wait for more details to emerge.  G.M. Howie Roseman is expected to address the media.

    Oh wow. Hope nothing happened to any of his kids. They’ve had problems, as we all know.

    Am I the only one getting a weird feeling about this?

    Hope everything is alright, we already have enough issues with the team.

    I’ve long been on the Fire Reid train, but doesn’t mean I wish any ill on him. Hopefully most people can separate this in their own thinking while posting.

    Whatever it is, it can’t be good.

    @hulkhogan, after reading much of your drivel over the past few days I’m convinced you watch the game but have no clue what you’re seeing.

    @dawkinseffect I have the same feeling…..something bad has happened.

    My first thought was disease with him or his wife…my second was, of course, his boys. I hope this news isn’t as bad as it appears. Prayers up.

    I also would believe something happened to one of his children before himself. I hope everyone comes out alive and well though. Best wishes to everyone involved
