DeSean Jackson pukes at Philadelphia Eagles practice

DeSean Jackson brought back some unpleasant Super Bowl memories for longtime Philadelphia Eagles fans at afternoon practice Friday. That's the bad news.

The good news is that training camp is the time for puking. The fourth quarter of the Super Bowl is not.

Brooks: Asomugha vs. Samuel
The Eagles chose to keep Nnamdi Asomugha and trade Asante Samuel. Who's the better overall corner? Bucky Brooks examines. More ...

"We ran a lot. The heat," Jackson said. "Gave it up a little bit, but it's part of training camp."

With new training camp rules, coach Andy Reid can conduct only one all-out practice each day. He's decided to conduct that in the peak of the afternoon heat, after a few meals have been eaten. So some of the meals may be given back to the Earth.

Other notes from Eagles camp:

• Former first-round draft pick Brandon Graham is still lining up as a backup. That's also true for this year's first-round draft pick Fletcher Cox. The starting Eagles defensive line: Jason Babin, Trent Cole, Cullen Jenkins and Derek Landri.

• Michael Vick slid during a run at practice, then motioned to the crowd for applause. President Obama approves.

• Clay Harbor is getting snaps with the starting unit with tight end Brent Celek on the shelf.
