    Eagles Wide Receiver Riley Cooper is out -- he broke his left collarbone at camp on Saturday.

    It was the first day of contact.

    Howard Eskin says Cooper is probably out one to two months. He got hurt during a passing drill.

    From Philly.com Sports:

    "Cooper went down awkwardly on an attempted long catch and defender Curtis Marsh fell on him. Cooper stayed down, then left practice. Afterward the Eagles announced he had suffered a broken left collarbone."
    Derek Boyko, Director of Football Media Services for the team tells us Riley is NOT out indefinitely, they just don't have a timeframe on when he'll be back.
     
    Wondering what the Eagles will do until then?
     
    "They consider rookie wide receiver Marvin McNutt, who is a 6' 3" wide receiver out of Iowa, drafted in the sixth round. Pretty good prospect," bets Eskin.
