Down and Out

Philadelphia hasn't exactly had a quiet training camp. First, Terrell Owens holds out, comes back, and suffers a groin injury. Then DE Jerome McDougle gets shot. Now WR Todd Pinkston is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles' tendon in his right ankle.

Pinkston led the NFC in yards per catch last season (18.8) but has largely been a disapointment in his five year career. The Eagles spent a high second round pick (35) on WR Reggie Brown of Georgia in order to a) provide some insurance in case Owens became a distraction, and b) push Pinkston. For now, veteran Greg Lewis is expected to start, but Brown figures to get plenty of playing time if he performs well in the preseason.
