Before his press conference started Friday morning, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson filled in reporters on several injuries, just like Andy Reid once did in this city.
Linebacker Jordan Hicks had a quad spasm and has been getting treatment and rehab. He’s expected to be back at practice next Tuesday for the mandatory minicamp in a limited fashion. He’ll warm up, do individual drills, but will be limited in the team portion.
The same goes for Rueben Randle, who recently had gallbladder surgery. He’ll return as a limited participant next week.

Nolan Carroll (fibula surgery) and JaCorey Shepherd (ACL) have both been working their ways back and have been cleared for team activities next week. That means they’ll be able to participate in 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills.
When asked what he hopes to accomplish the most next week, Pederson said he wants his team to come out of the mandatory camp healthy before the long layoff leading into training camp.
