Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins, who had missed Thursday's practice, returned on Friday. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, the Eagles' first-round pick, was excused from practice for personal reasons.
Cornerback Kevin Thomas stood on the sideline during practice wearing No. 33 without a name on the back. That's how new Thomas was to the team, arriving at Lehigh University Friday afternoon, following Thursday night's trade with Indianapolis.
Thomas said Colts general manager Ryan Grigson told him his former team needed linebackers, which is why Moise Fokou and Greg Lloyd went to the Colts in the trade.
"It's a business," Thomas said. "I packed my things up and I'm here today."
Thomas suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament as a rookie and missed the entire 2010 season. He played in nine games last season and started five. He said he has fully recovered and feels better than he's ever felt.
The Colts played a different system than the Eagles and relied more on zone coverage, but coach Andy Reid said the team was intrigued by Thomas' ability to play bump-and-run and fit within the Eagles' scheme.
"I've been playing bump-and-run since I started playing football, and only in Indianapolis I played cover two," Thomas said, referring to zone coverage. "I would say my best attribute is definitely press coverage."
Two players work out
The Eagles have one open spot remaining on their roster and worked out two players on Friday: Linebacker Adrian Moten and defensive end Ayanga Okpokowuruk.
Moten was undrafted out of Maryland in 2011 and played 12 games last season with the Seahawks and Colts. He is 6-foot-2 and 230 pounds.
Okpokowuruk is a 6-foot-2, 253-pound Duke product who has spent time on the practice squad with the Browns and the Giants.
