Getty Miles Sanders and Boston Scott were part of a very effective Eagles backfield committee in 2021.
So much for those goofy-looking Guardian Caps protecting players from head injuries. Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott was listed out with a concussion on Saturday, an injury likely stemming from a hard collision with Marcus Epps at a recent practice.
Scott will enter the concussion protocol and miss a few days of training camp. He becomes the third Eagles player to suffer a head injury this summer, joining left tackles Jordan Mailata and Andre Dillard. Those two guys got knocked out of the team’s first fully padded practice on August 2 on undisclosed plays.
Meanwhile, rookie tight end Grant Calcaterra remained out with a hamstring injury. Receivers DeVonta Smith (groin) and Greg Ward (toe) were missing in action at Saturday’s session. The Eagles have three practices and two walkthroughs left before the preseason opener on August 12 at Lincoln Financial Field. Real football is almost back.

Join Heavy on Eagles!A.J. Brown ‘Going to be a Problem’
Heavy’s Matt Lombardo attended Eagles camp on Saturday where he was diligently tracking all the big plays. One player who really stood out was receiver A.J. Brown who showed off his physicality on a post pattern. He’s going to be a problem for opposing defenses.

Lombardo also walked away impressed by linebacker Kyzir White and undrafted rookie cornerback Josh Jobe. Prior to practice, Eagles special teams coordinator Michael Clay singled out Marcus Epps, Shaun Bradley, and T.J. Edwards as emerging leaders and “core special teamers.”

The Philadelphia area has been taken hostage by an extreme heat wave this summer. Temperatures reached 85 degrees on Saturday, but harsh humidity (64%) made it feel like a sauna on the field. The city issued a heat advisory. That’s been the norm throughout camp, or the “dog days” as some players have been calling it.

Head coach Nick Sirianni is being extra cautious about player health and safety. The major thing is monitoring injuries this time of year.
“The thing you dislike about it is you don’t want to lose guys,” Sirianni told reporters. “You’re worried about the heat as far as players’ health.”
I think a lot of the #Eagles offensive struggles today had to do with Mailata and Dillard being out. Pass rush was as oppressive as the heat. #Eagles

There are positives about grinding through the extreme heat, though.
“What you love about it, is this is how the first couple games will be played,” Sirianni said. “Atlanta last year, that game was hot. This year’s game in Detroit they’ll have the air conditioning on. But, after that, it’s going to be hot, and we have to be ready for that. It gets you in great shape.”

Overwatch 2 is out tomorrow — but it will take a HUNDRED games to unlock your favourites
OVERWATCH 2 is the long-awaited sequel to the popular arena shooter, but fans aren’t happy with how long it takes to unlock the characters.
The original Overwatch gained popularity due to how you could change up characters on the fly, and adapt to your opponents’ strategy.1It'll be a while before new players can play as Hammond.
However, if you don’t have the account that you played the original game on for the sequel, then it’s going to be a while before you can play as everyone.
Developer Blizzard previously announced that new players would not have the full roster of characters to choose from at launch.
Game director Aaron Keller defended the decision, saying: “We believe that, even with this change, Overwatch remains a highly competitive game.
“Internally, we have talked about this topic over the past year as much as, if not more than, any other topic that's involved with the game.More in ShootersAPEX PREDATOR These Vantage tips will up your game in Apex LegendsOVERWHAT? 'It's fair' — Overwatch director thinks it's OK to lock heroes away from players
“And we think it's fair and still allows Overwatch to retain its competitive nature.”
Early access has been granted to a select group of players and we now know exactly how many games a new player has to do before they can play as their favourite hero.
To unlock the full roster of heroes, someone has to play at least a hundred matches.
However, if you played the original game on the same account you will already have your heroes unlocked.Most read in TechWORM IN THE APPLE Five things you should never do with your iPhone including a risky habitAI SPY AI making bigger decisions over our lives - but we still don't trust itEND CALL Still using an old iPhone?

While players knew this change was coming, it was still disappointing to see just how many matches someone would have to play before they could have their choice of characters.
Despite the large number of matches needed to unlock heroes, fans were more disappointed about competitive matches.
In order to join ranked matches, rather than the quick play format, players will have to take part in 50 battles.
As competitive is by far the most popular way to play Overwatch, fans were concerned about how long it will take to get into the game.
The original Overwatch will be removed once the free-to-play sequel releases.
While we won’t know exactly how the changes affect players until the season is fully underway, it seems fans are holding back their excitement.
