PHILADELPHIA -- Defensive end Michael Bennett and running back Darren Sproles were not in attendance as the Eagles opened OTAs on Tuesday.
Bennett's absence is not related to his ongoing legal matter, according to coach Doug Pederson, who took Bennett's absence in stride.
"I really don't have any concern going forward with him acclimating himself to the defense," he said. "You've been around long enough to understand [defensive coordinator] Jim [Schwartz]'s style and what we teach and it fits his strength, and that's roll off the ball as a D-lineman. It's just a matter of getting him in here and getting him around his teammates."
