Andy Reid Is Back With the Team

Andy Reid Is Back With the Team

Just three days after unfathomable tragedy struck at Lehigh, and one day after the funeral of his oldest son, Garrett, Andy Reid reportedly has returned to training camp as the Eagles begin preparing for Thursday night's preseason opener. Coach Reid will hold a press conference later on this morning, and is expected to be on the sidelines for the game as well.

Some thought Andy might take a little more time, others have opined he should. If the head coach and his family believe what's best during this difficult period of mourning is to attempt to get back to normal, who can argue?

While I can't relate to the Reids' situation, I appreciate it's hard for anybody around the Eagles to think about football right now. My intention heading into this week was to examine different aspects of the team similar to how we've done in recent weeks and seasons past, but Monday rolled around and it didn't feel appropriate, Tuesday no more so. Today doesn't feel a whole lot better either, but there is a game tomorrow, so we're going to jump back into it.

It feels small and trivial by comparison, but after a trying past few days, putting the focus on football might be the best medicine. We will continue to keep the entire Reid family in our thoughts though.

Sixers' game vs. Kings rescheduled for Jan. 30

The NBA has determined a new date for the Sixers home game against the Kings, which was postponed on Nov. 30 because of unsafe playing conditions on the court.

The game has been rescheduled for Monday, Jan. 30 at 6 p.m. This will create back-to-backs for both teams.

The Sixers are playing in Chicago on Jan. 29. They will play consecutive games against the Bulls and Kings, then have a road back-to-back against the Mavericks and Spurs on Feb. 1 and 2.

The Kings will be on what is now an eight-game road trip. They will play a back-to-back against the Rockets the next night in Houston.
