Boykin back to practice
Assistants always wait for Chip Kelly before hitting the field.
Cornerback Brandon Boykin returned to practice after sitting out a day with a sore hamstring.
Linebacker Mychal Kendricks (strained calf) joined his teammates at practice but wasn't in helmet or shoulder pads. That doesn't mean he won't play Sunday, according to head coach Chip Kelly.
"He's showing improvement," Kelly said of Kendricks. "He's moving, he's running a little bit more. He was running on the treadmills in the weight room and he's now out on the field doing some things."
Kelly, asked if he would play a player who didn't practice all week replied "it depends who the player is." Kendricks has a pretty good knowledge of what the Eagles do.
While Kelly reported improvement in Kendricks, the Eagles are two weekends away from their bye.
Also, offensive tackle Lane Johnson is rounding into shape. Johnson hasn't played since training camp due to NFL discipline.
