Eagles hurting: Riley Cooper, Jason Babin sustain injuries
The Philadelphia Eagles’ quest for a Super Bowl took a little hit on Saturday when wideout Riley Cooper and defensive end Jason Babin were injured during training camp.
Cooper broke his left collarbone and Babin sustained a calf strain and left practice early and will have an MRI Sunday.
“I think it’s a bump in the road,” Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said told Philly.com about Cooper. “He’ll recover from it. He’s had a good offseason and because he’s had that offseason he’s gotten a lot of reps … and gotten stronger and got more knowledge of our system and that will benefit him when he’s ready to come back.”‘
Babin led the Eagles with 18 sacks last season and Cooper had 16 catches for 315 yards and one touchdown.
