For The Record

| DIED |

At 29 of undetermined causes, Garrett Reid, oldest son of Eagles head coach Andy Reid. Campus police at Lehigh, in Bethlehem, Pa., where Philadelphia opened training camp last week, found the younger Reid (below) dead in his dorm room at approximately 7:20 a.m. on Sunday and reported "no suspicious activities." Garrett, who had been assisting the team's strength coaches at camp, had run into trouble in the past: In 2007 he spent 23 months in prison after he ran a red light and crashed into another car while he was high on heroin, and he was further sentenced to two years in a drug-treatment program after he attempted to smuggle 89 prescription pills into his jail facility. "He's had a tough struggle," said Joe Banner, the former Eagles president and a friend of the Reid family. "He seemed like he got his life back together, and was doing something he was really enjoying and was doing it really well."
