Philadelphia Eagles Inside Slant 2008-08-11
The Eagles' Pro Bowl right guard, Shawn Andrews, finally reported to training camp. But how soon he'll be ready to contribute remains to be seen.


Andrews revealed last week that the reason for his absence from camp is because he's suffering from depression. He said he's taking medication to control it.

Third-year man Max Jean-Gilles, who was going to compete with Todd Herremans for the starting left guard job going into camp, was moved over to the right side and has played very well in Andrews' absence.

Head coach Andy Reid said he's going to take it slow with Andrews. He wants to make sure the offensive lineman has his depression under control before he puts him back on the field.

"I want to see him first before I make any judgment there," Reid said. "I know he's been working out. But I just want to sit down and talk with him face to face and make sure everything set up for him here so he can be successful.

"I'm going to gradually feed him back in. But I want to see how he's doing. That's my primary focus right now."

Andrews, who was put on the team's reserve/did not report list when he didn't show up for training camp, was put on the active
"He wants to come back," Reid said. "I'm sure there's some apprehension there. But I know he wants to get back going, get back with the guys."

CAMP CALENDAR: The Eagles will break camp at Lehigh this Wednesday. They'll play their second preseason game Thursday at home against Carolina, then resume practicing on Saturday, the 16th, at their south Philadelphia training facility.
