Position Listing
Jerome Couplin
News
The Eagles declared quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone), cornerback Bradley Fletcher (hip), safety Jerome Couplin, wideout Jeff Maehl, offensive linemen Dennis Kelly and Julian Vandervelde, and defensive end Taylor Hart inactive for Sunday's game at the Giants.

With Fletcher inactive, corner Nolan Carroll will start.

Injury
Shoulder - IR. Out for season
Seyi Ajirotutu
News
Eagles wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu (concussion) took part in Tuesday's practice, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. 

Ajirotutu was back on the field Tuesday after missing last week's game due to the concussion. While he is apparently healthy again, he will remain primarily at the bottom of the depth for the Eagles.

Eric Rowe
News
Eagles cornerback Byron Maxwell (shoulder) will likely be able to play in Sunday's game against the Saints, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Maxwell injured his quad during the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Redskins, allowing rookie Eric Rowe to work in an every-snap role. If Maxwell doesn't end up playing in Week 5, Rowe will likely get the start.

Brandon Hepburn
News
The Eagles signed linebacker Brandon Hepburn and offensive lineman Tyler Hoover to the practice squad Tuesday and released linebacker Colton Underwood.
Barrett Jones
News
As the Rams start the final week of OTAs, three players are still battling in a wide-open race to be starting center. 

Tim Barnes, Barrett Jones and Demetrius Rhaney are vying for the job, and the competition will liekly last far into training camp. 

"We’re not going to make a decision real early,” coach Jeff Fisher said, per StLToday.com. “We’ll let them all play. We’re rotating them. They’re all getting opportunities to work with (QBNick Foles), so he’s familiar, not only with the exchanges, but also the communication. We’ll make that decision when somebody shows us he’s earned the job."

Thad Lewis
News
The Eagles have released third-string quarterback Stephen Morris and signed the more experienced Thad Lewis, per Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Lewis started five games for the Bills in 2013 and one for the Browns in 2012. Cleveland re-signed him this offseason, but let him go after a disappointing preseason performance.

Kevin Monangai
No Updates
Nelson Agholor
News
Agholor caught two of three targets for 23 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Agholor was drafted in the first round to help fill the void of the departed Jeremy Maclin and it didn't go quite as well as Chip Kelly would have liked. Agholor neve topped three receptions in a game all season and scored just once. Outside Jordan Matthews, there are no real bonafide threats at receiver for Philly, possibly giving Agholor an opportunity to take a mulligan for 2015. It's important to note, however, that the next regime may not be as patient with Agholor as Kelly was given that he won't be "their guy."

Ed Reynolds
News
The Eagles announced their final cuts to trim the roster to 53 players Saturday.

The following players were all released Saturday: linebackers Emmanuel Acho and Josh Kaddu; defensive linemen Wade Keliikipi and Damion Square; defensive backs Curtis Marsh, Roc Carmichael, Keelan Johnson and Ed Reynolds; quarterback G.J. Kinne; running backs Kenjon Barner (waived/injured), Henry Josey and Matthew Tucker; wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah, Quron Pratt, Will Murphy and Damaris Johnson ; kicker Alex Henery; and offensive linemen Kevin Graf and Josh Andrews.

The team also added wide receiver Arrelious Benn (back) and linebacker Travis Long (knee) to injured reserve. 

E.J. Biggers
News
The Eagles have agreed to one-year deals with cornerback E.J. Biggers and wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Biggers spent the last two seasons with the Redskins after joining the Buccaneers in 2009. Over his six-year career, the 27-year-old has compiled 235 total tackles, 34 passes defensed, four interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Ajirotutu, 27, was a special teams ace for the Chargers for four of the last five seasons. As a receiver, he has 24 receptions for 420 yards and three touchdowns.

Taylor Hart
News
The Eagles declared quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone), cornerback Bradley Fletcher (hip), safety Jerome Couplin, wideout Jeff Maehl, offensive linemen Dennis Kelly and Julian Vandervelde, and defensive end Taylor Hart inactive for Sunday's game at the Giants.

With Fletcher inactive, corner Nolan Carroll will start.

Travis Long
News
The Eagles have waived outside linebacker Travis Long, according to ESPN.com. Long suffered a torn ACL on Monday and if he goes unclaimed, he will be placed on the team's injured reserve list.

Long has been with Philadelphia since 2013, but is yet to play a game after suffering multiple injuries.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Tanner Hawkinson
News
The Bengals will be without top wideout A.J. Green (concussion) and starting tight end Jermaine Gresham (back) for Sunday's playoff game at Indianapolis. They combined for 1,501 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns this season.

With those key targets out, quarterback Andy Dalton figures to rely on running backs Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard and wideout Mohamed Sanu.

Also inactive for Cincy are quarterback AJ McCarron, defensive back Chris Lewis-Harris, offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson, defensive lineman Devon Still and wideout James Wright (knee).

Cincy is a 3.5-point underdog as Dalton looks for his first playoff win in four tries.

Mychal Kendricks
News
Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game in Carolina.

With DeMeco Ryans (knee) inactive, Kendricks and Jordan Hicks will start at inside linebacker. There's some chance Kendricks will be limited, but he did play every defensive snap in his only healthy game this season, all the way back in Week 1.

Caleb Sturgis
News
Sturgis (right hamstring) is active for Sunday's game at New York.

Sturgis has made 18 of 22 of his field goal attempts for the Eagles so far this season.

David Molk
News
Eagles center Jason Kelce, who's coming back from sports hernia surgery, is among the team's inactives Sunday at Arizona. David Molk will continue to fill in.

Also sitting out are running back Darren Sproles (knee), wideout Brad Smith (groin), quarterback Matt Barkley, offensive lineman Dennis Kelly and defensive end Taylor Hart.
Injury
Connor Barwin
News
Barwin recorded a sack, his seventh of the year, in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants.

Barwin's sack production was halved from last season to this year, as the Eagles' defense on the whole was less effective in pressuring opposing quarterbacks. He still piled up 45 tackles and seven passes defensed, but he only forced one fumble and didn't come up with an interception. Ultimately, the stud linebacker didn't live up to his preseason expectations.

Chris Pantale
News
The Bears have claimed tight end Chris Pantale off waivers from the Jets, the team announced on Tuesday.

Pantale was waived by New York in the offseason after one season. He appeared in five games, mostly on special teams. He had one kickoff return for 24 yards.

Sam Bradford
News
New Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said that Bradford would fit perfectly into his system, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The comment should be taken with a grain of salt, as Pederson also referred to Bradford as a "top-notch quarterback". To be fair, Bradford did play much better down the stretch in 2015, and he's at least good enough to safely be viewed as a low-end starter. The Eagles will presumably make Bradford a serious offer, but it's possible the impending free agent will find a better contract and/or situation elsewhere.

DeMeco Ryans
News
Ryans (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Dolphins.

Ryans will suit up for the first time since Week 6, but with a healthy linebacking corps in Philadelphia, his exact role will be a bit unclear. The 31-year-old has 23 combined tackles so far this year, but has made his presence known with both an interception and fumble recovery.

Malcolm Jenkins
News
Eagles free safety Malcolm Jenkins, whose thievery has resulted in one interception in each of the last three games, has earned the praise of Chip Kelly.

"We've said since day one, (he) can play anywhere," Kelly told Eagles Insider. "He's been unbelievable since he arrived here."

Jenkins has shown off his range this season. Each of his picks have been snagged on a different part of the field. The veteran has more interceptions in four games this year than he has in any of his five previous full seasons.

Kenjon Barner
News
Barner (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Barner is coming off a minor breakout game during last week's win over the Patriots, in which he recorded a career-high 39 rushing yards to go along with two receptions. The Eagles have grown frustrated with the lack of production from free-agent signee DeMarco Murray this season, and according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, there's a possibility that Murray could rank as the Eagles' fourth option at running back Sunday. If that's the case, Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews would likely shoulder the bulk of the duties at the position, but Barner should have an opportunity to occasionally mix into the rotation, particularly on passing downs.

Brandon Bair
News
Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews is active for Sunday's game at the Giants after being listed as probable with a knee injury. Also suiting up for Philly are outside linebacker Trent Cole (hand), defensive tackle Beau Allen (shoulder), defensive end Brandon Bair (knee), tight end Trey Burton (back), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (ankle) and safety Chris Maragos.
Beau Allen
News
Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews is active for Sunday's game at the Giants after being listed as probable with a knee injury. Also suiting up for Philly are outside linebacker Trent Cole (hand), defensive tackle Beau Allen (shoulder), defensive end Brandon Bair (knee), tight end Trey Burton (back), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (ankle) and safety Chris Maragos.
Travis Raciti
No Updates
JaCorey Shepherd
News
Eagles cornerback JaCorey Shepherd tore the ACL in his right knee, an MRI confirmed Monday, per Philly.com.

Shepherd was injured during Sunday's practice and was carted off the field. The injury will be season ending.

Shepherd was projected to claim the starting nickle cornerback spot.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Allen Barbre
News
The Eagles placed offensive lineman Allen Barbre (ankle) and linebacker Najee Goode (pectoral) on injured reserve Tuesday. Guard Evan Mathis (knee) was also placed on injured reserve with a designation to return.
Matthew Tucker
News
The Eagles have waived running back Matthew Tucker with a non-football injury, per ESPN.

Tucker spent the last two seasons with the team, but mostly on the practice squad. He did earn playing time in two games as a rookie in 2013, though with no rushing attempts.

Zach Ertz
News
Ertz has signed a five-year contract extension with the Eagles, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Ertz's new deal will reportedly make him the NFL's fourth highest-paid tight end, and keep him with the Eagles through 2021. At 25 years old, Ertz set new career-highs with 75 catches (on 112 targets) for 853 yards this season, when he also scored two touchdowns.

Andrew Gardner
News
The Eagles reached a contract extension with offensive guard Andrew Gardner on Tuesday, reports NFL.com.

The extension is for three years at $4.7 million and includes a $500,000 signing bonus. Gardner played in 16 games last season and started eight.

Injury
Darren Sproles
News
Sproles ran the ball three times for 24 yards and a touchdown, and caught three passes for 20 yards, in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants.

Sproles' yards from scrimmage ended up nearly identical to his first season in Philadelphia, but his rushing touchdowns were cut in half, from six to three, and his yards per carry fell by two yards per attempt. The Eagles' offense as a whole was notably less productive in 2015 than in Chip Kelly's first two years, and Sproles showed both on offense and in the return game that he can still produce as a playmaker. Where he fits in the Eagles' offense remains to be seen.

Bryan Braman
News
The Eagles signed former Texans linebacker Bryan Braman to a two-year, $3.15 million deal, including $1 million guaranteed, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Josh Andrews
News
The Eagles announced their final cuts to trim the roster to 53 players Saturday.

The following players were all released Saturday: linebackers Emmanuel Acho and Josh Kaddu; defensive linemen Wade Keliikipi and Damion Square; defensive backs Curtis Marsh, Roc Carmichael, Keelan Johnson and Ed Reynolds; quarterback G.J. Kinne; running backs Kenjon Barner (waived/injured), Henry Josey and Matthew Tucker; wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah, Quron Pratt, Will Murphy and Damaris Johnson ; kicker Alex Henery; and offensive linemen Kevin Graf and Josh Andrews.

The team also added wide receiver Arrelious Benn (back) and linebacker Travis Long (knee) to injured reserve. 

Jaylen Watkins
News
Eagles cornerback Nolan Carroll left the game at the Giants in the third quarter to be evaluated for a concussion. He had four tackles and two passes defensed before getting hurt.

Corner Jaylen Watkins replaced Carroll.

Steven Means
News
Means has been added to Houston's practice squad, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Texans project Means as an outside linebacker in their 3-4 scheme. He played 11 games for Tampa Bay in 2012 and 2013 and has six career tackles after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 draft. He was most recently with Baltimore, who released him late in September.

Brandon Graham
News
Eagles linebacker Brandon Graham feels the optimism of a guy coming off his best season.

"I'm feeling the best I've ever felt," he told the team website.

It's no wonder. He recorded career-highs in tackles (36), tackles for losses (13 1/2), assists (11) and sacks (5.5) in 2014. He earned significant playing time in a rotation at that position. And with Trent Cole off to Indianapolis, those reps could increase this year.

Graham has toiled feverishly to improve his game and adapt to a new defensive system. The result was a new four-year contract with the team.

"I understand the game and the league and what it takes to get it done here," he said. "I think I've grown up. I'm serious about being a great player. I want to be the best."

Randall Evans
News
The Eagles have announced that they have signed three of their draft picks. Included are second-rounder and cornerback Eric Rowe, sixth-rounder and cornerback Randall Evans and seventh-rounder and defensive end Brian Mihalik.
Cedric Thornton
News
Eagles defensive end Cedric Thornton has a broken bone in his hand and will be out 'a week or so,' The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. 

The nature of Thornton's injury is uncertain, but it appears it will cost him one game and possibly more. It remains to be seen who will take his place in the starting lineup.

Malcolm Bunche
No Updates
Deontae Skinner
News
The Eagles filled out their 90-man roster Friday by signing linebacker Deontae Skinner, who last played for the Patriots in 2014, per the team's website. 

Skinner played in seven games with New England last season, his rookie NFL campaign, picking up 16 tackles. He was released off the team's practice squad in May. 

Josh Huff
News
Huff was held without a catch in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants.

Despite playing much better football in his second year than he did in his rookie season, Huff's production was still very inconsistent. He caught just one pass for eight yards in the final two games of the year, and racked up 20 yards or fewer in nine games this season. Whether he can be the speedy play-maker former head coach Chip Kelly envisioned remains to be seen; so far, it doesn't look promising.

Jonathan Krause
News
Vinny Curry
News
Vinny Curry would like to receive as much playing time with the Eagles as possible this season. So the natural defensive end is not complaining about getting reps at linebacker during minicamp.

Curry maximized his opportunity last year despite participating in only 32 percent of the defensive snaps, finishing second on the team with nine sacks and tied for first with four forced fumbles.

"I think he's expanded his role in terms of where we can deploy him," Chip Kelly told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Despite his 280-pound frame, Curry boasts superior speed and quickness. But he's not expected to be used covering receivers or running backs coming out of the backfield.

He just wants to be prepared for anything the coaches provide for him to do.

"Hopefully, I will be ready for everything that comes my way," Curry said.

Bennie Logan
News
Logan (calf) was placed on IR on Saturday, Philadelphia Inquirer writer Jeff McLane reports.

Logan is a fine run-stopping interior lineman and his absence leaves Philadelphia a bit more vulnerable at the nose tackle position against the Giants.

Injury
Calf - IR. Out for season
Lane Johnson
News
Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson suffered a sprained MCL in his knee and a sprained ankle during Sunday's game against the Redskins, but is not expected to miss time due to either ailment, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Johnson will apparently play through his pair of sprains, but with him banged-up, the Eagles' beleaguered offensive line takes another hit in advance of next Sunday's game against the Saints.

Brett Boyko
No Updates
Riley Cooper
News
Cooper didn't catch a pass in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants.

Cooper, whom many believe will be moving on in the offseason as his contract becomes manageable, caught two passes in his final three games of the season. He finished the year with 21 catches for 327 yards and two touchdowns, both of which were the lowest marks since 2012. He was relegated to spot duty all year, and could find himself elsewhere next season.

Matt Tobin
News
Eagles right guard Matt Tobin, who suffered a concussion Week 11, has been cleared and is practicing Thursday, reports Philly.com. Still, Andrew Gardner took the first-team reps at right guard, the report added.
Kiko Alonso
News
Alonso finished the season with 30 tackles after recording a season-high eight in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants.

Alonso's first season with the Eagles was replete with disappointment, from his time-consuming knee injury to his seeming inability to replicate the production of his rookie year. Similar to Nelson Agholor, Alonso's status in the inside linebacker rotation will be tenuous going forward. He was out-played by rookie linebacker Jordan Hicks, and will have to prove himself to the Eagles' next coach.

Walter Thurmond
News
Thurmond (elbow/shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Thurmond practiced fully this week and looks like he'll check in at reasonable health in what represents a critical matchup for both teams' playoff hopes. With the Bills expected to utilize a run-heavy approach in Sunday's game, Thurmond could end up spending more time in the box, which should still lend itself to plenty of tackle opportunities. The safety has recorded 19 combined stops over his last two games.

Najee Goode
News
The Eagles placed offensive lineman Allen Barbre (ankle) and linebacker Najee Goode (pectoral) on injured reserve Tuesday. Guard Evan Mathis (knee) was also placed on injured reserve with a designation to return.
Jordan Hicks
News
Hicks has been placed on IR by the Eagles with a pectoral injury.

With Hicks -- who had recorded 50 tackles and two picks in eight games -- out for the season, philly.com relays that the Eagles will roll with an inside linebacker corps headed by Mychal Kendricks, Kiko Alonso and DeMeco Ryans.

Injury
Pectoral - IR. Out for season
Donnie Jones
News
The Eagles signed punter Donnie Jones to a three-year deal and released safety Patrick Chung, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Mark Sanchez
News
Sanchez completed 19 of 27 passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns during Thursday's crushing loss at Detroit.

Sanchez was under constant pressure from the Lions' resurgent pass rush, taking nine hits and getting sacked six times, yet he only committed one turnover, a fumble, on the Eagles' first drive of the second half. Facing a deficit of 31-7 at that point, he continued to truck along and finished with a quarterback rating (116.1) that belied an uninspiring performance from the Chip Kelly-coached squad. Because Sam Bradford (shoulder/concussion) is approaching a return to action, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network, Sanchez will likely serve in a reserve role in the Eagles' next tilt on Dec. 6 in New England.

Ryan Mathews
News
Mathews recently had groin surgery, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Mathews originally hurt his groin in late October, but a bye week allowed him to avoid any absences. He later missed three games because of a concussion, and he was also listed on the injury report with the groin issue until Week 14. Despite his absence from the report, this may help to explain why Mathews only had 11 touches over the final two weeks, with DeMarco Murray notably re-emerging in a key role for the regular-season finale. Mathews should be healthy before the start of training camp, but he'll likely have to compete with Murray for carries again.

Brent Celek
News
Celek agreed to a three-year, $13 million contract to stay with the Eagles, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

The deal reportedly includes $6 million guaranteed, which shows just how much the Eagles value the 31-year-old Celek, even though Zach Ertz has emerged as the team's primary tight end. Celek's days as a useful fantasy contributor may be numbered, but he's still an important part of the Philadelphia running game, with solid hands to boot.

Freddie Martino
News
The Eagles have announced that they have signed wide receiver Freddie Martino, who was released by Atlanta on Friday.

The team has also released fellow wideout John Harris and waived/injured defensive end Frances Mays.

Martino got into one game for the Falcons in 2014 without snagging a pass.

Nolan Carroll
News
Carroll (broken ankle) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Already coming unglued, the Philadelphia defense will lose arguably its most consistent cornerback. On the bright side, rookie second-round draft pick Eric Rowe should now have the opportunity to play nearly every defensive snap. Carroll, who can hit free agency this offseason, should have enough time to recover before training camp.

Injury
Ankle - IR. Out for season
Dennis Kelly
News
The Eagles declared quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone), cornerback Bradley Fletcher (hip), safety Jerome Couplin, wideout Jeff Maehl, offensive linemen Dennis Kelly and Julian Vandervelde, and defensive end Taylor Hart inactive for Sunday's game at the Giants.

With Fletcher inactive, corner Nolan Carroll will start.

Jordan Matthews
News
Matthews caught seven passes for 54 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants.

Matthews finished his second season with 85 catches for 997 yards and eight touchdowns, a marked statistical improvement from last season despite his up-and-down play. His second half of the season, when quarterback Sam Bradford played his best football, showed that Matthews has the potential to be a perennial 1,000-yard wide receiver when he receives consistent quarterback play. Whether he has solved his drop problem completely remains to be seen.

Byron Maxwell
News
Maxwell (shoulder) won't play Sunday against the Giants.

With Maxwell ruled out this week, the former Seattle cornerback finishes up his first season with the Eagles with 64 tackles and two picks in 14 games.

Fletcher Cox
News
Eagle defensive end Fletcher Cox had his biggest game of the season, picking up three sacks, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 39-17 win over the Saints.

Cox has long been adored by coaches and media types, but his stat sheet explosion against Drew Brees and the Saints could put him on the national radar for good. He dominated a depleted New Orleans offensive line, and has looked stronger with each week after a mediocre Week 1. He's an IDP with strong upside to keep an eye on. As the Eagles' offense improves, the defense will see less extended time on the field, which means fewer drives like they one they allowed against Washington in Week 4 and more opportunities for Cox to burst through offensive lines.

Trey Burton
News
Eagles tight end Trey Burton had to leave Sunday's game against the Cowboys after suffering a shoulder injury, the team announced. Burton underwent an X-ray and returned to the field.
Jason Peters
News
Eagles offensive tackle Jason Peters knows there will be a ton of pressure on the team's offensive line to help newly acquired running back DeMarco Murray duplicate or surpass his incredible rushing numbers from last year.

Murray was last season's NFL Offensive Player of the Year after leading the league with 1,845 rushing yards. He did so as a Cowboy and behind one of the best offensive lines the NFL had last season, so Peters realizes all eyes will be on the Eagles line to help Murray continue his dominance.

"It's a big weight on our shoulders. He was the rushing champ last year. He almost broke the record. For him to come here and not duplicate that, that would discredit us a little bit with the Dallas offensive line. We've got to make sure he gets his yards," Peters said. "That's a big challenge. The Dallas offensive line is good. We're just better. We're going to make sure he gets his yards."

Cody Parkey
News
The Eagles have placed kicker Cody Parkey (groin) on injured reserve, according to FOX Sports.

Parkey, who suffered a groin injury during warmups before Sunday's win over the Jets, will be replaced by former Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis, who was beaten out in training camp by Andrew Franks for the placekicking job.

Groin - IR. Out for season
Jason Kelce
News
The Eagles are almost completely healthy for their Sunday game against Tennessee. Only quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone) will be red-lighted. All of his teammates should play.

Included are probables such as defensive end Brandon Bair (elbow), cornerback Brandon Boykin (hamstring), center Jason Kelce (thumb), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (calf/hamstring) and wideout Jeff Maehl (foot).

DeMarco Murray
News
Murray carried 12 times for 69 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Giants. He was targeted once in the passing game but did not record a reception.

The nightmare season came to a close for Murray, who ran for fewer than half of the 1,845 yards he recorded last year with the Cowboys. Despite scoring in each of the last two weeks, the 28-year-old also found the end zone just seven times after compiling at least 11 touchdowns in each of his previous two seasons. Coach Chip Kelly's departure could have a positive effect on Murray's usage, and he will look to rebound in 2016.

Mike Lee
News
The Falcons have signed nose tackle Derrick Hopkins and waived cornerback Mike Lee.

Hopkins had been released during the preseason a year ago by Baltimore and served time on the Washington and Detroit practice squads.

Lee was signed by Atlanta as a rookie free agent after the 2015 draft.

Marcus Smith
News
Eagles second-year linebacker and first-round pick Marcus Smith has declared that the hamstring injury he sustained in practice Thursday will have him sidelined for 2-3 weeks.

"I'm glad it wasn't anything major, but it's still something that keeps him out," defensive coordinator Bill Davis told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "It's disappointing, probably to him more than anybody. He was really taking some growth steps and coming along, and now he's got a setback."

Smith is targeting more playing time in 2015. He got into eight games as a rookie, but registered no tackles.

Chris Maragos
News
Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews is active for Sunday's game at the Giants after being listed as probable with a knee injury. Also suiting up for Philly are outside linebacker Trent Cole (hand), defensive tackle Beau Allen (shoulder), defensive end Brandon Bair (knee), tight end Trey Burton (back), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (ankle) and safety Chris Maragos.
Jon Dorenbos
News
Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and long snapper Jon Dorenbos have been added to the Pro Bowl roster, the team announced Friday.

Maclin, who will be replacing Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, recorded career highs across the board in 2014, catching 85 passes for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns. He is set to reach free agency after the season.
