Cooper, Babin out indefinitely with injuries

Jason Babin healthier times.
Defensive end Jason Babin, defensive tackle Antonio Dixon and wide receiver Riley Cooper all were shaken up at practice Saturday.

Cooper is out indefinitely with what the Eagles are calling a fractured left collarbone, landing hard  after getting tangled with defender Curtis Marsh.

"I think it's a bump in the road," general manager Howie Roseman said. "He'll recover from it. He's had a good offseason. Because he's had that offseason he's gotten a lot of reps and gotten stronger and got more knowledge of our system. And that will benefit him when he's ready to come back."

Roseman contends he doesn't have enough information to determine if it's a season-ender.

Babin strained his right calf in one-on-one pass rushing drills against the offensive line. He's scheduled for a Magnetic Resonance Imaging test Sunday morning.

Dixon limped off with heat cramps.

All were carted off the field.
