According to Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly, Watkins did some "light running" on the sideline while his teammates were warming up.

Watkins, who was the Eagles' fourth-round pick​, missed time earlier in training camp with a hamstring injury.

Wednesday's practice was the first time this week that the Eagles practiced in pads.
