LeSean, DeSean and Eldra OK; Lawrie signed

The heat issues sidelining running back LeSean McCoy and Eldra Buckley, and wide receiver DeSean Jackson before the end of the morning practice weren't serious.
Soon after Eagles head coach Andy Reid revealed that, all three players returned for the afternoon practice.
Nonetheless the list of walking wounded grew.
Running back Mike Bell is out of action with a recurrence of hamstring issues. Wide receiver Hank Baskett joined center Nick Cole and tight end Cornelius Ingram in the whirlpool, all with swollen knees. Ingram also has a calf issue serious enough the Birds signed former United Football League tight end Nate Lawrie, just in case.
And kicker David Akers sat out practice with a left heel contusion.
Other than that, the Eagles survived the morning practice in high humidity beneath the unforgiving sun.
