Babin hunting in Alaska

Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins were the only veterans who didn’t attend the Eagles' first voluntary practice Tuesday.

Babin is hunting in Alaska per an Eagles source. Jenkins has family issues according to a teammate.

Tight end Brent Celek (shoulder, hernia surgery) was back at work and anything but limited, as was center Jason Kelce (foot surgery).

Demetress Bell, the replacement for injured Pro Bowl left offensive tackle Jason Peters, was learning.

Rookie defensive linemen Fletcher Cox and Vinny Curry were trending.

Defensive end Brandon Graham, the Eagles’ first-round pick three drafts ago reported weighing in at 265 pounds. He played at 285 pounds coming off knee surgery last year.

“I know Coach Reid is going to bring the best guys in to help us win," Graham said. "I’ve been talking with Vinny Curry and Fletcher Cox. Those guys seem ready this year. And we need as much help as we can because last year we were dealing with a lot of injuries on the D-line. And those guys can fill in. So it’s always good to have good guys."
