Sam Bradford needed just three plays Thursday to do what Sam Bradford does during an Eagles' preseason: He chews bubble gum, kicks tail, completes passes, and leads touchdown drives. Kenny Bell, a wide receiver/return man for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, had lost a fumble on the opening kickoff, giving the Eagles the ball at the Bucs' 18-yard line, and the one thing you don't do is give Sam Bradford a short field in a preseason game, because he will make you pay. And he did: a 3-yard completion to Brent Celek, two handoffs to Ryan Mathews, and presto: Eagles touchdown.

IT WASN'T a disaster. The bus didn't catch fire. Nobody missed the game. Plays were called, and run; there was not a single delay-of-game penalty. Maybe Doug Pederson really is more a Mike Holmgren disciple than an Andy Reid guy. Pederson, of course, played under Holmgren and Reid in Green Bay, followed Reid to Philadelphia in 1999 to hold a place for Donovan McNabb, eventually retired, became a high school coach, an Eagles low-level assistant under Reid before ascending to quarterbacks coach, then was part of the Reid exodus to Kansas City as offensive coordinator before the Eagles hired him in January to replace Chip Kelly.

For the sake of this discussion, let's remove all the emotion and smokescreen and denials and apologies from what is almost certainly about to happen with Eagles tackle Lane Johnson and simply pretend instead that he tore a muscle at practice the other day and will miss 10 weeks of the regular season. Any muscle. Pick one. If you want to say he tore the muscle doing something really, really stupid and he was a rockhead to do so, that's your prerogative. The point is the muscle is torn, and he needs surgery, and it's going to take until Nov. 28, when the Eagles host a Monday night game against the Packers, for the rehabilitation to be completed.

WELL, THE Eagles' offensive line was a huge problem in 2015, for the second year in a row, but there's a new regime, and it has had all offseason to get things straightened out. So fans are looking forward to seeing the team open the 2016 schedule against the Browns on Sept. 11 with a group of starters that could include, let's see here . . . Matt Tobin? Dennis Kelly? Or Andrew Gardner? What the actual (heck)? We don't know whether any of that uninspiring but familiar triumvirate will end up starting, but chances sure look good that at least one of them will, maybe more.

The Eagles will open their preseason schedule Thursday without 10 players, including four projected starters. Coach Doug Pederson announced Tuesday that left tackle Jason Peters, safety Malcolm Jenkins, wide receiver Jordan Matthews, linebacker Mychal Kendricks, defensive linemen Mike Martin and Marcus Smith, running back Wendell Smallwood, and receivers Hunter Sharp and Marcus Johnson will all be sidelined with injuries suffered during training camp....

In 2012, Ryan Mathews prepared for his third NFL season by trying to determine how to stay healthy. He was a former first-round pick who topped 1,000 rushing yards and earned a Pro Bowl appearance in 2011, but the blemish to begin Mathews' career was his injury history. So he tried fixing it for his third NFL season. The result? Mathews suffered two broken collarbones that season and played only 12 games. "Sometimes it's luck of the draw," Mathews said. "I think I've done a good job this year of maintaining myself, and stuff happens.

THE EAGLES would really like to get their projected starting offensive line off the screen they're projecting it upon and onto the field, but that goal has proved elusive. Right guard Brandon Brooks practiced, at least a little, for the first time in this training camp Friday, but left tackle Jason Peters remained sidelined with the quadriceps strain he suffered Thursday. Though Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Peters is "day-to-day," he seems likely to miss several more days. Matt Tobin is filling in there.

Brandon Brooks and Ryan Mathews participated in practice Friday for the first time during training camp after both players missed a week. Brooks, the starting right guard, was absent because of a hamstring injury suffered before the first practice. Mathews, the top running back, had an ankle injury that he suffered during offseason training. Neither player took on his normal workload. Brooks did not practice with the first-team offensive line. Mathews left practice early, coach Doug Pederson said, "just [to]

Two of the Eagles' best players left practice early Thursday. Jason Peters departed with a quadriceps injury, and Malcolm Jenkins went to the locker room with a hamstring injury. The severity of both injuries was not reported. Peters' injury is notable because the left tackle had lingering injuries last season, and he missed two starts. One of those ailments was with his quadriceps, which he said was related to a back injury. Matt Tobin took Peters' place with the first-team offense on Thursday.

HEY, YA KNOW what would be a fun training camp debate? To ponder where the Eagles could least afford to lose a starter. Who is truly irreplaceable? Let's run down the list. There's thought interrupted by tap on shoulder; colleague points to safety Malcolm Jenkins limping to the sideline with a hamstring strain, to be replaced by, let's see, looks like it's gonna be Ed Reynolds . . . OK, I think we're done here. The Eagles boast what should be one of the league's top safety tandems in Jenkins and Rodney McLeod.
