First cuts aren't due until next Tuesday, but the Eagles didn't need another week to evaluate Jason Phillips.


Vinny Curry sat at his locker at the NovaCare Complex on Tuesday afternoon. He looked tired. Practice had just wrapped up, and he was sweating.

“It was a good day,” Curry said.


This is the evaluation phase. That’s what Bill Davis called it. Sometimes, he said, the evaluation phase “looks painful, and sometimes it looks promising.”


The groin injury Nolan Carroll suffered in Eagles practice more than two weeks ago really came at an annoying time.


Billy Davis knows the final stats for his Eagles defense against Chicago didn’t look encouraging, especially on third-down defense, especially for the starters.
