Eagles' Chip Kelly responds to Cary Williams' practice comments

Monday September 22nd, 2014

Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly said he doesn't think other players agree with cornerback Cary Williams, who said after Sunday's win that the team practices too hard during the week, according to Philly.com

The Eagles defeated Washington 37-34, but Williams said the team was sluggish as a result of taking too many reps during practice that are taxing on the body. "The the way we're doing it right now, it isn't conducive to success," he said.

Kelly said he has since spoke with Williams about his words. 

"I know we ask our guys to run a lot during practice," said Kelly. "I met with Cary just a little while ago, he came in on his own today ... I think he was frustrated (when Williams spoke after the game). I understand that. Cary's a competitor. I got no issues with Cary."

Philadelphia is 3-0 heading into Week 4, when they'll play at San Francisco.
