DeMarco Murray sat because dehydration level 'a little high' - [Full Article]

Two days later Chip Kelly explained why running back DeMarco Murray was not in team drills during Sunday's first training camp practice.

Apparently, the Eagles test every player every day for the dehydration levels and Murray came up, according to Kelly "a little high'' Sunday.

"It was a training staff decision,'' Kelly said Tuesday before the team's training session at Lincoln Financial Field. "Especially, with the way the weather has been, we didn't want to take any chances. It's not just for (Murray), we treat every player on a daily basis.''
