PHILADELPHIA – The Patriots wake up Tuesday morning in the City of Brotherly Love, focused on their first practice with and against the Eagles and new head coach Chip Kelly.

Kelly is known for running his offense and his practices at a high pace, and Vince Wilfork said on Monday him and his teammates will be ready for a lot of running.

“Absolutely,” Wilfork said with a laugh. “Trust me – Bill (Belichick) has been doing a real good job of that. We’ve always been a well-conditioned team and we’re not gonna stop.”

Before leaving Foxborough, the Patriots held a shells-and-shorts workout that was heavy on situational plays in all three phases of the game.
