Justice, though, was supposed to be healthy by now. He said he's getting better, but how close is he to returning?
"I don't know. It's really up to Reid and the trainers right now," Justice said, referring to head trainer Rick Burkholder. "I think the only thing I can really do is trust Rick and Reid with it. I think they have my best interest in mind."
In the meantime, Justice appears to have lost his starting right tackle position to Ryan Harris. Acquired as a free agent last week, Harris has secured the spot over the last three days, longer than any of the other candidates for the position have.
"I don't think you can think about that," Justice said. "The only thing I'm thinking about is getting better."
Last week, Reid said that Justice's role as an NFLPA representative during the NFL lockout may have put him behind schedule in his rehabilitation.
"I don't really understand the context of that," Justice said. "It really didn't affect it at all. I was rehabbing twice, sometimes three times a day to get better."
James Andrews performed the surgery, and Justice said, "He said I was right on track."
A day after sitting out practice, Nnamdi Asomugha returned but sat out the full contact portions on Monday.
The Eagles' top free agent signing was sidelined with an upper leg inflammation. Asomugha missed only a day, but every practice is vital as the new cornerback attempts to learn the Eagles scheme and the various ways in which defensive coordinator Juan Castillo plans to employ him.
Asomugha and Asante Samuel are currently the starting right and left cornerbacks. But with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in the fold the Eagles have shown looks that have Asomugha positioned in the slot or even inside the linebackers to blitz.
"We're trying to get Nnamdi comfortable with his position at corner," Castillo said. "There's some things we're going to do. . . . You see Dominique – it's the same thing. Sometimes he plays outside. Sometimes he plays inside. So we have some flexibility with those packages."
Defensive end Trent Cole also returned to practice after sitting out Sunday with an elbow injury. Safety Marlin Jackson left training camp to get further evaluation on his groin injury, the team said.
Defensive tackle Trevor Laws (hip) appears to be getting closer to a return. Defensive tackle Brandon Collier, though, was seen on crutches with a boot over his right foot. The Eagles did not have an official injury update Monday.
The Eagles signed former Redskins defensive end Chris Wilson to a one-year contract. Wilson recorded 65 tackles and six sacks during his four-year tenure in Washington. . . . The team also signed defensive tackle Marlon Favorite and released wide receivers DeAndre Brown and Cordario Calvin.
