Eagles Abroad: Weekend Preview

Eagles Abroad is brought to you by Grubber, makers of fine sporting apparel. 

Several Eagles that were with the team last week in Sacramento have returned to Europe but they aren't the biggest returning story of the week. Eric Fry is back from a lengthy injury layoff and is playing for Vannes. That is big for Fry as he looks to get as much first team action in as possible. Fry could put himself back in the Eagles prop conversation with a string of solid performances. Of the players that did return from Eagles duty none are starting for their respective teams.

We just wanted to take a minute to let you know that TIAR is currently holding a pledge drive. If you liked what you read consider a donation. Eagles Abroad is one of our favorite segments but it takes resources. Your support makes it possible. If so inclined, there is a donation button on the right hand side of the page.
