Eagles Injury Update: Mack Hollins returns to sideline; an encouraging step for Rodney McLeod


Updated: 2:20 p.m.

Don't call it a setback.

Mack Hollins pops back up on the injury report Monday, but Doug Pederson made it clear his latest issue is unrelated to the sports hernia that sidelined the third-year wide receiver for 18 months (see story).

Here’s today’s Eagles training camp injury update:

Mack Hollins

After finally getting all the way back after an 18-month layoff following sports hernia surgery and practicing Thursday through Saturday (Sunday was a day off), the third-year receiver was back on the sideline Monday with what Pederson said was an unrelated “lower-body” injury. Pederson wasn’t any more specific than that.

Hollins was outside at practice and said he wasn’t concerned about this latest injury. He said he caught 300 balls from the JUGS gun after practice and said he was already feeling better at the end of that session (see story).

“It’s not a setback,” Pederson said. “We’re just being cautious with it. We’re going to continue to monitor it day to day, but it’s not a setback.”

Cre'Von LeBlanc 

Pederson addressed LeBlanc’s injury for the first time, saying the cornerback's injury was “week to week” but declining to be any more specific than that. LeBlanc was seen outside the locker room in a walking boot and riding a Roll-a-Bout scooter.

The fact that Pederson said "week to week" and didn't mention surgery or injured reserve is an encouraging sign, although as vague as Pederson was it's hard to draw any conclusions.

Rodney McLeod

As he gradually works his way back following knee surgery last September, McLeod got his first work in any drills other than individual on Monday as he participated in 7-on-7s. That's an encouraging step for McLeod, who told NBC Sports Philadelphia's Dave Zangaro he felt great after the session.

Paul Worrilow

After missing all of last year with a torn ACL that he suffered last spring at OTAs, the veteran linebacker has been practicing, but he was absent on Monday. No word on the nature of his injury. 

Blake Countess

Countess, the one-time Eagle safety who rejoined the team this offseason, practiced on Thursday before missing practice on Friday and Saturday. He returned on Monday and was a full participant. Countess had a foot injury late last season with the Rams.
