He also gave several injury updates.On standouts so farPederson was then asked if they were planning to cross-train Dillard on the right side at all, and the head coach said that they’re main focus is to get him comfortable where he’s at, but he does think the rookie is capable of going to the other side.The head coach was also asked to elaborate on the development of Agudosi and how he’s picking up route-running and other aspects of his position. Pederson said that everyday brings a new set of challenges for a young player like that, but that he is working his tail off in individual drills to improve.He also talked a bit about Greg Ward, and said that his time in the AAF was valuable experience for the receiver. Pederson noted that Ward is a guy who knows the Eagles system and the offense, and is getting comfortable in the slot and showing up on tape.On Miles SandersPederson was asked right away about Miles Sanders who was sidelined during Thursday’s practice, and the head coach noted that he’s “good” after suffering what he called a foot injury Brandon Brooks Jersey , but will undergo some additional evaluation.Additionally, Pederson mentioned that the thing that has impressed him most about the rookie running back so far is how he came back for training camp so in shape. After missing most of the spring with a hamstring issue, he didn’t miss a step upon his return. His conditioning was good, he kept his weight where they wanted him to be, and he’s been attacking each and every day. The head coach did acknowledge that they’ve been monitoring Sanders’ reps so they aren’t over-extending him.More injury updatesThe head coach also said that Mack Hollins is still working everyday and getting some individual work in, but that he does expect him working back into the 7-on-7 stuff in the next few days.Pederson gave DeSean Jackson a rest day on Thursday, but he did do some individual work.Linebacker Paul Worrilow is still working back from the ACL injury, and they’re still day-by-day with getting him healthy. But, Pederson said that he’s doing well.Similarly with Corey Clement http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-malik-jackson-jersey , the running back was able to get in some work on 7-on-7 on Thursday for the first time all offseason. Pederson said there is still no timetable for when they’ll have him back and fully cleared, but that they do still need to have him prepared for when that time comes, so getting some involvement today was a good thing.Other notablesPederson was asked about Eagles president Don Smolenski’s comments last week about limiting open practices, and the head coach agreed that there are several factors that go into that decision — including the condition of the field with concerts and preseason games.He was also asked about what his first practice was like as a rookie QB — going waaaay back. Pederson noted that he was always with the offensive line, working on his cadence, and didn’t even get reps as a backup quarterback his first couple of training camps. He joked that he threw a bit to running backs and tight ends, but never to the receivers. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Malcolm Jenkins went back to raising his fist during the national anthem and Chris Long again put his arm around him as the teammates continue trying to raise awareness about racial inequality, social injustices and systematic oppression.Landry Jones and Josh Dobbs each tossed touchdown passes and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Philadelphia Eagles 31-14 Thursday night in the preseason opener.But Jenkins’ decision to resume his demonstration after stopping last December drew most of the attention as the defending Super Bowl champions returned to the field.“Everybody is waiting for what the league is going to do,” Jenkins said. “We won’t let it stop what we stand for. I was very encouraged last year with the direction and that obviously took a different turn.“I think it’s important to utilize the platform as we can because for whatever reason Womens Timmy Jernigan Jersey , we have framed this demonstration in a negative light and often players have to defend why we feel the need to fight for everyday Americans and in actuality we’re doing the right thing.”The league and the players’ union have yet to announce a policy for this season regarding demonstrations during the anthem after the league initially ordered everyone to stand on the sideline when “The Star-Spangled Banner” is played, or remain in the locker room.Cornerback De’Vante Bausby also raised his fist during the anthem, and defensive end Michael Bennett walked out of the tunnel and walked toward the bench while it played. It appeared all the Steelers stood.“Malcolm is always a guy who is doing the work in the community, backing up whatever he’s doing,” Long said.The Eagles rested several starters, including quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. Nate Sudfeld threw a pair of touchdown passes and two interceptions.Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown sat for the Steelers and Le’Veon Bell still hasn’t signed his franchise tender.Jones completed all four of his passes for 83 yards, including a 71-yard TD pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster in the first quarter. Smith-Schuster made a leaping catch over Rasul Douglas at the 33 and ran untouched to the end zone.Fitzgerald Toussaint had a 3-yard TD run and a 2-point conversion to give Pittsburgh a 15-8 lead. Dobbs threw a 29-yard TD pass to Damoun Patterson late in the second quarter.“We moved the ball successfully,” Dobbs said. “It felt good to be out there.”Sudfeld threw a perfect strike for a 63-yard TD to Shelton Gibson and fired a 15-yard TD pass to rookie Dallas Goedert. He finished 10 of 14 for 140 yards.“I just ran my route and when I looked back, Nate stepped up and scrambled to my side and was able to hit me Stefen Wisniewski Jersey ,” Goedert said. “A great play by him.”Wentz still hasn’t been cleared for contact after having surgery to repair two torn ligaments in his left knee last December. Foles, the Super Bowl MVP, has missed a few practices with muscle spasms in his neck and shoulder.Mason Rudolph, a third-round pick competing with Jones and Dobbs for the backup job to Roethlisberger, was 7 of 12 for 101 yards.“He did a solid job in all areas,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.ROOKIE REPORTSteelers: Safety Terrell Edmunds, a first-round pick, had three tackles. Wide receiver James Washington, second-rounder http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-carson-wentz-jersey , caught two passes for 44 yards.Eagles: Goedert, a second-round pick and the team’s first selection, had four catches for 66 yards and one TD. He’ll get plenty of opportunities as the second tight end.INJURIESRyan Shazier joined the defense in Pittsburgh’s pregame huddle, just 11 months after spinal stabilization surgery. Shazier is out for the season.WELCOME TO FOOTBALLEagles rookie Jordan Mailata, an Australian rugby player drafted in the seventh round, got beat for a strip sack on his first series in the NFL. Mailata began the second half at left tackle.HONORING FORMER EAGLESEagles owner Jeffrey Lurie announced at halftime that two-time All-Pro defensive end Clyde Simmons and three-time Pro Bowl linebacker Seth Joyner will be inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame on Sept. 23.NEXT UPSteelers: Visit the Green Bay Packers next Thursday.Eagles: Visit the New England Patriots next Thursday.
