Eagles cornerback Bradley Fletcher did not practice Wednesday because of a concussion, while cornerback Brandon Hughes returned to practice in his recovery from a broken hand. Fletcher is "day-to-day," defensive coordinator Bill Davis said. He is a starting cornerback, so his absence could force the Eagles to make major adjustments on defense. Recovery from a concussion varies depending on the player and the severity, so it is unknown whether Fletcher will play Sunday against the San Diego Chargers.

FIVE THINGS TO WATCH AT FLYERS' CAMP   Training camp means hope, and lots of intrigue. With that, here are five things to watch as the Flyers open their 46th training camp at Wells Fargo Center today: 1. THIRD LINE LEFT WING: If free agent Dan Cleary decides not to report to training camp, his absence will open the only obvious hole on the roster. Rookie Scott Laughton would be a great fit, both developmentally and on the salary cap, if he can demonstrate an increase in offensive output.

FIVE YEARS AGO, at the end of training camp, then-Flyers coach John Stevens brought his team together in the kitchen of the team's training facility to bake a cake. For the players, the exercise was hardly a lesson in home economics - but rather a real-life reminder that it takes many different ingredients to come together in perfect order to end up with a product worth consuming. It didn't take half a cup of coffee yesterday morning, as training camp opened for the Flyers at Wells Fargo Center, to notice the stark contrast in ingredients on the Flyers' blue line.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said he still expected Dan Cleary to attend the opening of training camp Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center, although reports suggested that the veteran left winger may end up with another team. Holmgren had announced Tuesday that Cleary, 34, an unrestricted free agent, had accepted an invitation to attend camp on a tryout contract. The GM called Cleary, a longtime productive player with the Detroit Red Wings, a "glue guy" who could play in all situations.

FLYERS PROSPECT Taylor Leier likely could not have scripted yesterday any better. On the day he signed his first pro contract, Leier lifted the Flyers' rookies to a 1-0 win over the Capitals' rookies in an exhibition game in Arlington, Va. The same could not be said for highly touted defenseman Mark Alt. Alt, 21, suffered a concussion in his rookie debut with the Flyers when he was driven into the boards by Caps rookie Tom Wilson late in...

The Eagles added two more players to their practice squad, signing offensive lineman Isaac Remington and safety Keelan Johnson on Tuesday. The team still has one of eight practice squad spots to fill. Remington (6-foot-6, 305 pounds) spent training camp and the preseason with the Eagles. He was an undrafted rookie defensive lineman, but toward the end of camp he was switched to the offensive line. Coach Chip Kelly has stressed having versatile players on his team. Remington played for Kelly at Oregon, as did three former Ducks on the Eagles' 53-man roster - safety Patrick Chung, linebacker Casey Matthews, and wide receiver Greg Maehl.

The 76ers aren't done adding players. General manager Sam Hinkie said he will make roster moves "in a lot of ways" in the weeks leading up next month's training camp. "In training camp, you can have up to 20 players," Hinkie said. "I'm not the kind of guy that you can say that likes to miss out on opportunities. "The chance to have 20 is another chance to learn more about people. " The Sixers have 14 players on their roster. Two of them - Nerlens Noel and Jason Richardson - won't be available at the start of the season because of injuries.

Inside Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho's notebook is a list of goals for the training camp and the season. Even though Acho's employment with the Eagles was not guaranteed beyond the preseason, the 22-year-old on the roster bubble planned for a regular season. On Saturday, Acho will find out if he survived the team's first cut to the 53-man roster for the NFL season. Labor Day weekend is an uneasy time around the NFL. The Eagles trimmed their roster from 75 to 62 on Friday, and need to cut nine more players by 6 p.m. on Saturday.
