EAGLES CAMP: Chip Kelly era gets underway

Published: Jul 23 2013 05:45:20 PM EDT

Chip Kelly opened his first Eagles training camp at the NovaCare Complex on Tuesday.

The practice was fast-paced, and lasted about an hour without pads. 

At one point, Kelly had receivers catching passes with poles in front of them to simulate defenders.

The practice consisted of 29 players, mainly rookies and select veterans. 

That same group will practice Wednesday afternoon, and then the rest of the team will report to camp on Thursday.

Friday afternoon will mark the first full team practice.

The first full contact practice will be held on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. 

Sunday's practice will be open to fans.
