Donovan McNabb joins Eagles’ workout in Philadelphia

Updated with video at 3:17 p.m.

Not to read anything into anything, but Donovan McNabb is in Philadelphia for a charity event and Mark Meany, executive producer of WPIV, tweeted some photos of him working out with a few Eagles players.

Which makes perfect sense and may have no significance at all. Unless it does.

This, basically, is all you need to know:

McNabb is in Philadelphia to attend the dedication of the McNabb Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Voorhees Replacement Hospital. He joined Jamaal Jackson, Austin Howard, Trevor Laws, and Jaqua Parker for some agility drills and weight training with trainers from Power Train in Cherry Hill, N.J.

“I’m just focused on working out. It’s what I do in the off-season,” McNabb told Dave Zangaro of Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia. “So working with a great group of guys. [The Power Train] guys did a wonderful job of preparing those guys. So, I was just looking forward to it.”

It wasn’t as if the R word weren’t mentioned, though.

“We’re out here — it’s not we play for the Eagles and he plays for the Redskins, it’s we’re out here just trying to get better,” Jackson said. “Whatever happens with him … we joked about it a little bit in the weight room. I hope for the best for him and his family. Of course he’s gone through a lot and it’s been publicized, but he’s been a strong guy throughout and as far as I’ve known him and he’ll pull through.”
