OL Andrews Finally Back on the Practice Field

Back on the field for the first time today was Shawn Andrews, making his return for the first time since reinjuring his surgically repaired back. Andrews says he hopes to play the season opener against Carolina on September 13th.

The two-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman for the Eagles took part in an abbreviated practice Saturday at the team’s NovaCare Complex.

“It was a big step,” said Andrews, who has not practiced since training camp opened for veterans on July 30. “It felt good. Of course it wasn’t with pads, but I still got the feel of the pass rush. So we’re getting there.”

Andrews ran with the scout team, going against the Eagles’ No. 1 defense. He’s still hoping to get back his starting right tackle job, a spot currently held by Winston Justice.

“We’re taking it nice and easy with him,” Eagles coach Andy Reid said. “He made it through this morning. So we’re just going to go day to day with him.”
