AJ Feeley Gets Kicked Out of The Borgata

AJ Feeley Gets Kicked Out of The Borgata


According to Daily News gossip connoisseur Dan Gross, A.J. Feeley was kicked out of the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City yesterday.  Observe:

"Eagles quarterback A.J. Feeley was asked to leave a blackjack table at the Borgata yesterday morning following an argument with a casino dealer over a hand.

Reached yesterday, Feeley confirmed the incident, said he apologized to
casino employees before leaving for losing his cool and looks forward
to returning to the Atlantic City hotspot. Feeley said the dispute
started when a friend of his wasn't given enough time to buy insurance
on the dealer's hand, which had an ace showing.

The Borgata "doesn't comment on these types of rumors," a hotel spokesman told us yesterday."

In A.J.'s defense, 9 times out of 10 that you're playing blackjack in the morning it was preceded by a night of heavy drinking and dropping tons of cash.  So I pretty much envision Feeley sitting by himself, on his 14th Gin & Tonic -- or whatever backup QB's drink -- down a couple grand, trying to win it back while some dealer who's been working for 18 straight hours is getting on his nerves.  Hasn't that happened to everyone?

Now I ain't sayin' he shoulda yelled at him... but I understand.

Eagles injury update: Secondary hamstrung for second straight day

It looks like all three members of the Hamstrung Trio (see story) weren't practicing again on Thursday. 

At the start of Thursday's practice, Rodney McLeod, Corey Graham and Jaylen Watkins, who suffered hamstring injuries on Sunday against the Chiefs, were not participating. This will be the second straight day all three will miss practice. 

McLeod was the only member of the trio to even make an appearance at practice before reporters were kicked out after individual drills. He walked onto the field with a compression sleeve on his right leg and began to watch.

There was, however, a new safety on the field. Newcomer Trae Elston, who was claimed off waivers from the Bills, was on the field for the first time with the Eagles. He was wearing No. 35. 

It'll be tough for the Eagles to get Elston caught up by game time on Sunday at 1 p.m. Aside from Elston, the Eagles have just Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Maragos as safeties, although linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill could be used in a pinch and Jenkins thinks a couple cornerbacks have the ability to play safety (see story)

Ronald Darby (ankle) and Destiny Vaeao (wrist) were the other two Eagles who weren't practicing on Thursday. Darby is out for at least another few weeks with his dislocated ankle. 

Vaeao missed the Chiefs game and looks to be in danger of missing another week. In his absence, rookie sixth-round pick Elijah Qualls played nine snaps and played well. Qualls could see his workload increase as the fourth DT against the Giants.
