Jason Phillips carted off at Eagles practice

The Eagles lost wide receiver Jeremy Maclin for the season over the weekend and they kicked off this week’s set of practices by watching another member of the team get carted off the field.

Several writers in attendance at Eagles practice sent out word that linebacker Jason Phillips needed to be helped off the field by trainers after suffering an injury to his right leg before being put on a cart for a trip back to the locker room. Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post snapped a picture of Phillips as he left the field to get medical attention and Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer adds that Phillips threw his helmet to the ground while shouting some “choice words” during the evaluation.

Phillips signed with the Eagles as a free agent after spending the last two years with the Panthers, for whom he played all 16 games and started twice last year. He started his career as a fifth-round pick of the Ravens in 2009 and played four games for Baltimore as a rookie.

He was slated to be a major part of the special teams units in 2013, but the results of tests on his leg may force the Eagles to look elsewhere for someone to fill that role.

    There was an air of excitement surrounding the new-look Eagles, and I’m not saying its gone by any means, but losing guys this early can be deflating for a team. These are definitely some bad omens..

    It’s all setting up for another GMAN SUPERBOWL TITLE RUN. Go Eli.

    Sorry to hear this. As a Panther fan I can say that Phillips is a true professional, and always brought his A-game. Good luck and get back soon.

    Did they lay down some Veteran’s Stadium turf?

    We’ve won the super bowl before, we’ll win the super bowl again. Reality be damned.

    As the Beloved Eagle Vince Young once said “Dream Team, huh huh”

    I love it, the Eagles are all but conceding the division to the G-Men…, while Run and Shoot Chipper is tinkering around with his gimmick Read / Option and has no clue who his QB is going to be, the G-Men are just souping up the engine, en route to HOME SB VICTORY!

    Chipper make up your mind on a QB apparently its getting to your team. That’s 2 down in 3 days. At that rate you won’t have a team left.

    Reality check. No superbowl again this year. A lot less flap in those little wings.

    has anything good happened since vick arrived? dont think so….karma baby…karma

    Sorry “G-man”

    They can’t run the ball and the defense will be a liability this year

    At least you still have Eli…..that’s about it though.

    Chip’s about to find out how hard it is to run that offense of his on NFL roster limits. I can’t wait for that smug smile of his to turn upside down!

    Eagles just took the top spot on my (Who will finish ranked 32nd) list!

  19. lrm1980 says: Jul 29, 2013 4:11 PM

    Gloating injuries on a 4 win team? That’s lame.

  20. elisnopunkbitch says: Jul 29, 2013 4:15 PM

    #deerintheheadlightslookingGOON –

    Stop pretending that you are truly that na├»ve, while Eli has taken home 2 Lombardi crowns and SB MVP’s, what has ANY grounded Eagles QB done – answer NOTHING!

    And laxman1944 –

    Really, are you honestly that blind to see that we have the best receiving corp in the division, perhaps the league, and that our backfield is as good as anyone else’s? If the D can tighten up just a bit we are on cruise control to a Home SB!

  21. giantsfan64 says: Jul 29, 2013 4:34 PM

    Is that XLAX MAN??? How many Super Bowls have the Eagles won????? ZERO… BUT THEY HAVE WON ONE THING. THE ONLY QB TO QUIT DURING THE SUPERBOWL. (CUTLER DID IT IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME)

    Someone walked underneath a ladder or something.
    Maybe it’s the ghosts of those Vick Dogs – their way of vengeance is just jinxing the eagles – get rid of vick, bam – ACLs won’t be torn or …idk, this comment became dumb.
