  Les Bowen: Bradford makes more sense Unless you are hatching a NovaCare coup that would oust Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman, who plan to start Sam Bradford at quarterback this season, it would make no sense to give the majority of Eagles training-camp reps to Carson Wentz. It might make some sense to give the second overall pick in this year's draft more reps early on than a third quarterback would normally get, but I'm pretty sure the other players want to make sure their starting QB is ready.

STARTING in 1975, it just wasn't an Eagles practice without Joe Brown standing on the sidelines. Even in recent years, when he was legally blind, Joe would be there, always treated with respect and consideration by coaches and players alike. His friendly, outgoing personality endeared Joe to everyone he met, on the field and off. Joe died Sunday at age 62. He lived in Exton. "Training camp will not be the same without Eagle Joe," said head coach Andy Reid. "He was a fixture at our practices every summer for many, many years.

THE EAGLES are well aware that they haven't done this before. Team president Don Smolenski was describing for reporters Thursday some of the changes to the layout at Nova-Care, where about 300 to 400 invited fans will watch training camp, and at Lincoln Financial Field, where the Birds will hold five free public practices for which they have already distributed more than 200,000 tickets, Smolenski said. "We didn't know what to expect with the tickets. It's exciting to see it grow, literally on a daily basis.

Even though the World Cup of Hockey doesn't start until next week, the Czech Republic team has been hit hard by injuries. That means players like the Flyers' Jake Voracek and Michal Neuvirth need to have strong showings if the Czechs are going to be a factor in the eight-team field. Key forwards David Krejci of Boston and Tomas Hertl of San Jose, along with rugged Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas, will miss the tourney because of various injuries. They have been replaced by non-NHL players - two who play in Russia's KHL (forward Michal Birner and defenseman Tomas Kundratek)

P AUL TURNER wasn't in a position to take anything for granted. With about 6 1/2 minutes remaining in the preseason, Turner caught a swing pass from Eagles quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson and gained 13 yards before being pushed out of bounds. Most of the fans had already left Lincoln Financial Field and, in the grand scheme, it was a meaningless play in a less than meaningless 14-6 preseason victory for the Eagles over the New York Jets. Turner, however, played it as if it were the most important play of his professional career, because, at that moment, it was. When you are an undersized, not overly fast, undrafted rookie wide receiver out of Louisiana Tech, there are no laurels to rest on. It didn't matter that, since the day he was signed, Turner had done everything the Eagles coaches have asked through OTAs, minicamps and training camp.

There was a moment Monday afternoon that exemplified the challenge of playing quarterback in the city of Philadelphia. It occurred in front of Carson Wentz's locker, where the Eagles rookie heard Dallas QB Dak Prescott's name mentioned as an example of a 2016 draft pick who had actually lived up to or exceeded expectations in his first preseason as a pro. Wentz responded as he should have, and as all those gathered around him might have expected him...

INDIANAPOLIS - We've been told since the day he arrived in Philadelphia as the Eagles' third-round pick in the 2014 draft that Josh Huff was hell on wheels with the ball in his hands. The only problem has been that, with the exception of his kickoff return chores, the ball hasn't been in his hands all that often. Drafted by his college coach, Chip Kelly, Huff had just eight catches his rookie year and only 27 last season. In Huff's first year at Oregon, Kelly was smart enough to utilize him as both a runner and receiver.

AVALON, N.J. - Joel Embiid gave a good prognosis on his health but said the 76ers will likely be cautious upon his return. Embiid, the No. 3 overall choice in the 2014 NBA draft who hasn't played his first two seasons because of two foot surgeries, and rookie Ben Simmons drew a huge crowd at the Sixers' annual Beach Bash on Saturday afternoon at Jack's Place. Also in attendance was the Sixers' second first-round pick, Timothe Lewawu-Cabarrot. In June 2014, the 7-foot-2 Embiid underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture in the navicular bone in his right foot.

INDIANAPOLIS - We learned a year ago that bold declarations about NFL exhibition games - even the one in which the starters spend extended time on the field - are dangerous. So let's live dangerously. What we saw from Sam Bradford and the offense Saturday night at Lucas Oil Stadium offered sincere hope for a 2016 Eagles season that until now lacked in enthusiasm and excitement. For the second straight year, Bradford looked brilliant in his final preseason tune-up, connecting on 17 of 20 passes for 167 yards and two touchdowns.

UNTIL HE was hit by friendly fire earlier this month, Jordan Matthews had been the picture of health during his athletic career. Oh, sure, he had suffered his share of bumps and bruises. But none of them ever prevented him from answering the bell. "I had never missed a sporting event," the Eagles wide receiver said. "High school, college, pro, little league, I had never missed anything for injury, ever. So, the last two weeks have been kind of weird. " Matthews suffered a bone bruise on his left knee on Aug. 5 when rookie cornerback Jalen Mills hit him low during a full-contact training-camp practice.

T HIRTY OR so years later, Jim Schwartz remembers his former Georgetown teammate as being "really serious, someone who worked hard. " That isn't exactly the persona comedian Jim Gaffigan portrays today. Gaffigan, who announced Monday that his TV Land show won't have a third season, by his choice, has made a career of playing a certain type of white-bread, mid-American schlub; there's a line of dad-comedy-style car commercials, and a vaguely creepy portrayal of Colonel Sanders on behalf of KFC. "I saw him just this summer" in Maryland, said Schwartz, who is from Baltimore and has a shore house near there.

Stephen Tulloch will sign a one-year deal with the Eagles, a league source confirmed Sunday. The veteran linebacker provides much-needed depth to the middle of the Eagles' defense, and arrives with a background in defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's scheme. Tulloch, 31, will receive a contract worth up to $3 million with $1.75 million guaranteed, per the source. The move is not yet official, but Tulloch's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, confirmed the signing on Twitter. The interest between the veteran and the team has been reported for weeks, and the Eagles' need at the position only grew after rookie Joe Walker tore his anterior cruciate ligament last Thursday.

In less than six weeks, the 76ers will begin what can accurately be called their most anticipated training camp since Allen Iverson's distaste for poom-poom pants became public knowledge. It's no wonder why. This will be a different team and a different season, tank-free. Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, and Dario Saric will be making their NBA debuts. Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel, the two big men who may or may not be part of the team's long-term future, have a chance to show how much they've strengthened the deficiencies in their games or whether they've strengthened them at all. Coach Brett Brown will finally have some seasoned veterans - Jerryd Bayless, Gerald Henderson, Sergio Rodriguez - to add to his regular rotation of players.
