Mark Herzlich told the Boston Herald that his first day practicing in pads and in contact drills was initially nerve-racking, but eventually just like old times. As mentioned by SBNation's BC Interruption, Herzlich's first full contact drill practice in 612 days came and went without much trouble with his fractured foot.
"...obviously with my foot and my leg, you never really know what's going to happen. But it felt good out there and I didn't have to focus on that. After a couple of drills and a couple of periods, it was just back to football."
Herzlich is listed as sharing the starting SLB slot on the Eagles depth chart with senior Mike Morrissey.
