The Eagles are already setting up their facilities at Lehigh University, the site of their training camp, reports Pro Football Talk (via LehighValleyLive.com).

"We're trying to be as prepared as possible in the event we go to Lehigh for training camp," Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko said.

Other NFL teams have canceled training camp at away facilities, including the Baltimore Ravens, the New York Giants and the New York Jets. They are all staying home this summer as a result of the lockout.
