PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — The head coach of the Eagles continues to deal with a unique offseason. 

With the Eagles absent from the practice field due to the pandemic, Doug Pederson said he is putting his trust in his players to continue with their workouts online.

"We can't fly to them. We can't go see them workout. We can't do any of that. We're just asking they take this...they take this serious," said the coach.

Despite the lack of organized team activities, Pederson is confident his players will be ready whenever training camp and the regular season get underway.

"I'm not saying we're going to be a well-oiled machine in July," he admitted, "but the guys should be in pretty good shape when we do get a chance to have them back in the building."

Whether or not training camp or the regular season starts on time is still to be determined in the coming months.
