Eagles training camp: 7 takeaways from Day 6 of practice




 

The Eagles just wrapped up their sixth training camp practice, and injuries were the topic of discussion on Thursday.

Jordan Mailata and Andre Dillard were both out with concussions suffered in Tuesday's practice, while DeVonta Smith was ruled out with a groin injury.

As a whole, almost ten players are dealing with various ailments, and that means the next man up where Le'Raven Clark was able to get first-team reps at left tackle.

Here are seven takeaways from Thursday's practice with the team off on Friday.

After adding Haason Reddick, Jordan Davis, Nakobe Dean, and Kyzir White on defense, Philadelphia now has one of the more versatile defensive units in the NFL.

Look for this team to be a league leader in pressures and sacks.

The former Chargers linebacker will be an immediate upgrade over Alex Singleton at the WILL linebacker spot.

White has outrun everything in camp this season, and he'll do a fantastic job of setting the edge on running situations.

The additions of White, Reddick, and Jordan Davis can be felt against the run.

It'll be interesting to see how it impacts DeVonta Smith, but it can be denied that quarterback Jalen Hurts is targeting A.J. Brown a ton.
