"It's competition. I'm just trying to finish the play. I was trying to strip him," Landri said. "Sometimes you can't tell where you're out on the field. He didn't like it, so he turned around and tried to swing. And I didn't like that, so I retaliated. It's done and over with now."
Landri has been involved in a few mix-ups at Lehigh. Practices have been relatively tame since the early portion of camp, when the hitting was at full speed. After Sunday's practice, coach Andy Reid had a long talk with Landri as they walked off the field.
Landri said it had nothing to do with his altercation.
"I don't know what happened after I grabbed his face mask," Landri said as a few players walked by and razzed him. "But we've got to play football, and I shouldn't be doing things like that."
The Eagles' first-team offense struggled during the majority of red-zone drills Sunday, which could be interpreted as good news for the defense.
But quarterback Michael Vick never seemed to get in sync with his unit. He fumbled on one play after receiving the snap. On another, center Jason Kelce snapped the ball too quickly to Vick - who was in the shotgun - and the ball bounced off the quarterback's shoulder pads.
Vick held onto the ball too long on several plays, and on a few throws he was terribly off-target. Vick suffered a bruised thumb on his throwing hand in Thursday night's preseason game and was seen flexing his hand after several passes.
Plays of the day
With Mike Kafka out of team drills with a broken non-throwing hand, Nick Foles has made the best of his opportunities as the No. 2 quarterback.
His best throw Sunday came during a red-zone drill when he lofted a 20-yard touchdown pass to his favorite target, wide receiver Mardy Gilyard.
Chad Hall is on the roster bubble, but the wide receiver knocked Trent Cole on his keister when he blindsided the defensive end with a legal block. Cole jumped up and waved his hands as if to say, "What was up with that?"
Quote of the day
Coaches don't always single out players when asked to name one who played well in a game. But defensive coordinator Juan Castillo didn't hesitate when he was asked who stood out Thursday against Pittsburgh.
"Phillip Hunt played well," Castillo said. "The nice thing about the defensive line was that they were getting off the ball but what they were doing was when they were rushing they did a pretty decent job of playing the run, also."
