To hit or not to hit? At NFL training camps, that's always a big question. The Eagles are one of the few teams that have live hitting sessions during training camp, and the reality is that means there is greater risk for injury. For years, the Eagles have had players go down with varying degrees of injuries during the full-contact sessions, with the latest being middle linebacker Stewart Bradley, who suffered a season-ending torn anterior cruciate ligament to his right knee during the team's Flight Night practice Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.

1 BRAYDEN SCHENN , center: Schenn, 20, has by far been the most impressive player in the 3-day rookie camp this week. Schenn hung for 23 games on the Los Angeles Kings' roster to start last season - and played in eight - but an injury derailed his season and he was sent back to junior hockey. 2 MATT READ, center: Scott Hartnell's quote about the former Bemidji State captain says it all: "I didn't know much about him, but skating with him over the past few weeks, it looks like he's going to be a good player in this league.

When the Eagles conclude today's "voluntary" workout, the next time they will be getting together will be on Tuesday at West Chester University for their opening meeting of official training camp. But as many as 12 Eagles who answered coach Buddy Ryan's call for volunteers over the last three weeks may be AWOL. With yesterday's signing of rookie draft picks Eric Everett, a fifth-round cornerback, and Joe Schuster, a 10th-round defensive tackle, the Eagles now have two draft picks and 10 veteran free agents unsigned.

Bobby Abreu, the Phillies' rising star in right field, will miss today's first full-squad workout of the spring. Abreu, who signed a three-year, $14.25 million contract last month, has been delayed traveling to Florida from Venezuela because his mother has been ill. Abreu is expected to arrive at camp sometime tomorrow, but possibly not in time to work out. He is expected to take part in the full workout Friday. No one else is expected to arrive late. In fact, most position players have been in camp for several days, taking batting practice and lifting weights.

The Oakland Raiders expect receiver Javon Walker to be ready for training camp when he recovers from injuries suffered in a robbery in Las Vegas last weekend. Raiders coach Lane Kiffin finally spoke to Walker by phone yesterday morning, more than 2 days after Walker was discovered unconscious and beaten on a back street near the Las Vegas Strip following a night of partying. Walker was released from a hospital after treatment for a concussion and facial injuries. "The info that I have is he's going to be fine," Kiffin said.

The Eagles held meetings Thursday evening before Chip Kelly bid farewell to most of the team for six weeks. Thursday's mandatory minicamp session marked the final day of the offseason program, and the team will reconvene for training camp July 25. The rookies still have a program during the next two weeks, so they will be around the NovaCare Complex. The rookies report to training camp July 22. After 13 full-team practices during two months of work, Kelly has a better sense of his roster, although there's still much more for him to learn when training camp begins.

Steve Spurrier was his usual maverick self when he arrived in Carlisle, Pa., for his first NFL training camp as a head coach yesterday. He barely had unpacked his bags when he immediately made it clear he would rather be somewhere else. "I don't understand the importance of getting away, to tell you the truth," Spurrier said as the Washington Redskins checked into their dorms at Dickinson College. Spurrier, an avid golfer whose first words when he walked into the room before the news conference were, "Shot 75 today," said he might move training camp back to Redskin Park in the Washington suburbs next season.
