They say the games always look easier from the sideline or the press box, and maybe the same is true for the video that players watch of what they did in practice.
Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz said Thursday that the small video cameras he and other QBs are wearing on their helmets at times in training camp give him a different and valuable take on his practice actions.
"Still trying to work through it and get used to the views from that ... It's a cool experiment," Wentz said. "The biggest thing is, you see where your eyes are. You see where your eyes are looking, and also, the audio. You can pick up what kind of protection calls you're making" and can evaluate whether it was the right call.
Overall, Wentz said his biggest challenge right now is "matching up my feet with the drop, with the play, with the progression, the read. The footwork for each play is different."
Wentz seemed to have a good day Thursday, though not as good as Sam Bradford, who was very accurate. Chase Daniel seemed to struggle.
There haven't been a lot of significant injuries in this Eagles training camp, though starting running back Ryan Mathews and starting guard Brandon Brooks haven't practiced yet because of lingering ankle and hamstring injuries, respectively. Thursday brought an uptick.
Safety Malcolm Jenkins (hamstring) and left tackle Jason Peters (quad) left practice and were to undergo MRI testing. Both injuries were considered minor, pending the tests. Then the Eagles announced that undrafted rookie defensive tackle Connor Wujciak, from Boston College, had been waived/injured after undergoing shoulder surgery.
