"I'm sure we do, but I don't think he cares," Kelce said. "Babin's a crazy dude, and he's going to do anything to put his life in jeopardy."
Jenkins back in the fold
While football is a dangerous game, defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins might feel safer on the field than at home, given the way things have gone there lately.
Jenkins is back at practice this week after missing the first week of full-team practices because of a surgery for his wife.
"She had to have a little procedure done. She's back up and running this week now, so it's good," Jenkins said Wednesday. He went on to describe a litany of injuries that have befallen his family.
"My wife, she was laid up for a couple days. My youngest daughter, she's in an arm splint because they think she fractured the growth plate in her wrist, then she hurt her Achilles on top of that, so she's limping around. My oldest one, she got kicked in the eye with a soccer ball at school . . . then later Friday her back locked up in gymnastics, and she was laid out on the floor, so I had to come get her from there," Jenkins said. "I look at them now like they're the ones playing football."
Maclin tweaked his ankle Thursday, but said he would be fine.
Fellow wide receiver DeSean Jackson dropped a couple of passes in traffic. It may be something to watch.
Even with Jenkins back, first-round pick Fletcher Cox is getting plenty of work at defensive tackle with starter Mike Patterson sidelined after brain surgery.
The Eagles defense continues showing a variety of blitzes. That will be a new wrinkle to watch from the pass rush.
Cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie have played on each side of the field, showing the kind of flexibility that the Asomugha-Asante Samuel tandem lacked last year.
At running back, seventh-round pick Bryce Brown has gotten more looks so far than undrafted free agent Chris Polk.
Quarterback Trent Edwards is getting few chances. He said he didn't have a single snap Thursday in seven-on-seven or 11-on-11 drills. That's not a good sign for his chances of actually competing for the No. 2 job.
