PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Philadelphia Eagles guard Shawn Andrews says he is battling depression and might end his training camp holdout this week.
Andrews tells the Philadelphia Daily News in an exclusive interview Monday that he has decided to get professional help and is on medication. The two-time Pro Bowl selection says the depression began more than a year ago and has worsened.
Andrews says he is to meet a doctor Thursday and could return to the team this weekend.
He confirmed he is being fined $15,000 per day by the team because his absence is unexcused.
Andrews says he has been working out and is in top shape at 335 pounds.
