Rookie tackle Eric Fisher was back to practice Monday, one day after sitting out Sunday’s session because of soreness in his right shoulder. Fisher also has a left thumb injury.

Fisher took his normal spot as the starting right tackle and took all of the snaps with the starting offense.

“He pushed himself through,’’ coach Andy Reid said. “Every rep a rookie can get is an important rep. He was out here doing it. It was a tough practice today and he was coming off a couple of days when he wasn’t able to do stuff, and he worked hard.’’

A better day for the offense

One day after the defense dominated practice, the offense made its share of plays. The offense wasn’t by any means dominant, but scored its share of touchdowns on a day dedicated to plays run from inside the 20-yard line.

“It goes back and forth,’’ Reid said. “That’s how you get better as a football team. You keep challenging each other. You do a lot of work with (starters against starters) and you expect that to take place. It’s good work.

“It was good work today. The guys battled through a semi-live day yesterday.’’
