Position Listing
Mack Hollins
News
Hollins stands to benefit from Friday's release of Dorial Green-Beckham, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Hollins, a 6-4, 221-pound deep threat, was selected by the Eagles in the fourth round of this year's draft. That came despite his senior season being restricted to seven games by a collarbone injury. Although Philadelphia also added Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith to its receiving ranks this offseason, and still features Jordan Matthews (knee) prominently, Hollins still figures to get every opportunity to push them and the underwhelming Nelson Agholor for playing time -- a sentiment DGB's release supported Friday. Although it's difficult to know what to expect from Hollins out of the gate, his 20.6 yards per catch and 20 touchdowns across his final 33 college games leaves plenty of intrigue ahead of training camp.

Tyler Orlosky
No Updates
Bryce Treggs
News
Treggs didn't catch either of his two targets in the Eagles' season finale against the Cowboys.

On a day TE Zach Ertz caught 13 balls for 139 yards and two touchdowns, no other Philadelphia pass catcher was able to make much of an impact. Still, with Jordan Matthews (ankle) unavailable to suit up, Treggs saw his most game action since Week 12. While he ultimately wound up without anything to show for it, Treggs is now afforded the offseason to work his way up the Eagles' wideout pecking order in preparation for Year 2 of the Carson Wentz era.

Nelson Agholor
News
Agholor has been the "standout star" of spring practices, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philly reports.

Eagles receivers coach Mike Groh had nothing but high praise for the former first-round pick, citing Agholor's productive spring practices and versatility. The USC product took over first team reps in the slot while Jordan Matthews nursed a knee injury and continued to shine. While Agholor has disappointed in his NFL career thus far and is slated to be Philadelphia's fourth receiver behind Matthews, Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, it is not as if the first two on that list are bastions of good health. The 24-year-old could still see plenty of playing time and a possible breakout if he can translate his spring production to the regular season.

Taylor Hart
News
The Eagles have moved Hart from defensive tackle to offensive tackle.

Hart played in just one game last season, recording two tackles while playing along the defensive line. Late in the season the Eagles coaching staff decided to try him out along the offensive line and they were impressed enough to keep him there in 2017. He'll work with the offense starting in spring practices and look to carve out a larger role with the team next season.

Dillon Gordon
No Updates
Mychal Kendricks
News
Kendricks (quadriceps) was not present at Monday's OTA, Philly.com's Jeff McLane reports.

While the quadriceps injury that prevented the California product from suiting up in the Eagles' regular-season finale seems to be a thing of the past, Kendricks missed the OTA session that was open to the media last Tuesday with a calf strain and it's presumed he sat out Monday due to the same issue. This injury isn't necessarily a huge concern at this stage in the offseason but it could become a problem if it lingers into training camp and the preseason.

Injury
Calf - Questionable for Week 1 at Washington
Caleb Sturgis
News
Sturgis connected on two of three fields goals and three extra points during Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

Sturgis finishes his 2016 campaign having made 35 of 41 fields goal attempts and 30 extra points in 31 tries. He signed a one-year extension with the Eagles in September, so he's slated to be Philadelphia's kicker once again in 2017.

Chance Warmack
No Updates
Chris Long
News
Long agreed to terms with the Eagles on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Long is fresh off of a Super Bowl win with the Patriots and will bring a veteran presence to Philadelphia's defensive front. He recorded 35 combined tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble in 16 games last season. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Long's deal is two years in length, so he will need to show he can still make plays at the age of 32 if he wishes to secure a long-term future with the Eagles beyond the next two seasons.

Darrell Greene
No Updates
Nate Gerry
News
The Eagles selected Gerry in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 184th overall.

Gerry (6-foot-2, 218 pounds) is a safety with mediocre athleticism but was a very good three-year starter at Nebraska. He projects as a strong safety in the NFL.

Aziz Shittu
Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Ron Brooks
News
Brooks suffered a ruptured quadriceps tendon during Sunday's game against the Vikings and will consequently require season-ending surgery, The Philadelphia Inquirer's Les Bowen reports.

Brooks went down after attempting to make a tackle during the first quarter Sunday. With his injury requiring surgery, Brooks is expected to land on injured reserve soon, opening a roster spot for the Eagles. After signing with Philadelphia this offseason, Brooks' familiarity with coordinator Jim Schwartz's defensive scheme, as well as fellow cornerback Leodis McKelvin's previous hamstring injury, resulted in Brooks starting five out of six games thus far. While McKelvin's return to health should help make up for Brooks' absence, C.J. Smith or Terrence Brooks could be activated to boost the Eagles' secondary going forward.

Injury
Quadriceps - Questionable for Week 1 at Washington
Kamu Grugier-Hill
News
Grugier-Hill (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Gruigier-Hill dealt with an illness that kept him sidelined during Thursday's practice, but he was able to return Friday without limitations. He'll provide depth at outside linebacker behind Mychal Kendricks.

Malcolm Jenkins
News
Jenkins had two tackles in Sunday's win over Dallas.

Jenkins finishes the season with 72 tackles, 1.0 sack, and nine passes defensed, including three interceptions in 16 games played. His numbers are down on the whole from last season but he did manage to play in a team-high 99.9 percent the Eagles defensive snaps.

Nick Foles
News
Foles agreed to a two-year contract with the Eagles on Monday.

After spending the last two seasons in Missouri with the Rams and Chiefs, Foles will head back to the place where he began his career in 2012. The 27-year-old once looked like he might be the permanent solution at quarterback for the Eagles after tossing 27 touchdowns against just two interceptions over 13 games in 2013, but he regressed the following season and appears to have settled into backup duties at this stage of his career. Foles will serve as the understudy for second-year signal-caller Carson Wentz, and his addition will likely prompt the Eagles to release well-regarded backup Chase Daniel.

Beau Allen
News
Allen (pectoral) was placed on the non-football injury list Sunday, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

Allen was given a 4-to-6 month timeline for a return after undergoing successful surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle in April, so his placement on this list comes as no surprise. It remains doubtful he'll be ready to play in time for the regular-season opener Sept. 10 in Washington.

Injury
Pectoral - Out for Week 1 at Washington
Allen Barbre
News
Barbre (hamstring) took part in Monday's OTA after sitting out the past two weeks with a strained calf, Philly.com's Jeff McLane reports.

Barbre, who sat out Week 17 with a hamstring injury before hurting his calf in OTAs a couple weeks ago, seems to have returned to full health. The veteran lineman is expected to open the 2017 season as the Eagles' starting left guard.

Anthony Denham
News
Denham was waived by the Texans, Aaron WIlson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Texans think they have a find in undrafted free agent Stephen Anderson, a hybrid tight end/H-back type, who will make the team's 53-man roster. Anderson's emergence throughout the offseason activities and preseason sealed Denham's roster fate.

Zach Ertz
News
Ertz has agreed to a restructured payment of his 2017 base salary, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

Ertz's restructure creates over $2.5 million in cap space for the Eagles this offseason and guarantees him more money in the immediate future. In 14 games last season, Ertz totaled a career-high 78 catches for 816 yards and four touchdowns.

Dom Williams
News
Williams (Achilles) has reverted to the Eagles' injured reserve list.

Williams was waived/injury in early May and reverted to IR after clearing waivers. While the severity of his Achilles injury isn't clear, he could be out for a while if it's anything remotely serious.

Injury
Achilles - Injured Reserve
Justin Hamilton
No Updates
Darren Sproles
News
Sproles returned to OTAs on Monday after missing last week with a family obligation, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The veteran speedster returns to the practice field this week and should compete for first-team reps with newly acquired LeGarrette Blount, who also missed some time last week due to family obligations.

Sidney Jones
News
Jones (Achilles) was placed on the non-football injury list Sunday, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

This move was likely inevitable as Jones tore his Achilles tendon in March. As it stands, the Eagles will have Jalen Mills, Patrick Robinson and Rasul Douglas to work with as their top corners to open training camp.

Injury
Achilles - Out for Week 1 at Washington
Timmy Jernigan
News
Jernigan suffered a sprained ankle in Monday's OTA, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

The defensive tackle had his ankle heavily taped as he limped off the field Monday morning, a worrisome sight for 295-pound offseason addition. The severity of the sprain remains unknown so look for more updates to come over the next handful of weeks. If he does sit out for an extended time, expect Justin Hamilton and Destiny Vaeao to receive some first-team reps to finish up OTAs.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 1 at Washington
Dallas Thomas
No Updates
Bryan Braman
News
Braman is currently exploring his options in free agency, NJ.com reports.

Despite playing through an AC sprain in his left shoulder most of the season, Braman played in all 16 games for the Eagles last year and ultimately racked up a total of five tackles on special teams. He'll look to latch on with a team in need of extra bodies for training camp this summer.

Josh Andrews
No Updates
Jaylen Watkins
News
Watkins inked a one-year contract with the Eagles on Saturday, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphia reports.

The defensive back was an exclusive rights free agent, but will opt to remain in Philadelphia. The 25-year-old played in all 16 games last season, while starting four of them. He recorded 24 tackles and three passes defended in the process. Watkins projects to back up Malcolm Jenkins at free safety heading into the 2017 season.

Steven Means
News
Means (illness) was a full participant at Saturday's practice, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

There was some concern that Means' game status might be affected by an illness he had been suffering from, but it looks like he will be good to go against the Packers on Monday.

Brandon Graham
News
Graham is expected to sit out offseason activities until he successfully renegotiates a new contract with the Eagles, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Graham signed a four-year, $26 million contract in 2015, which will pay out $6.5 million in both of the next two years. He's coming off a season in which he led the NFL in pressures and tallied a career high in tackles to go with 5.5 sacks. The 29-year-old figures to improve on those numbers in his second year in Jim Schwartz's 4-3 defense, but wants to be paid commensurate with his expected production. His status at camp will have to be monitored heading into OTAs, which begin May 23.

Dwayne Gratz
News
Gratz was released by the Eagles on Sunday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

This move is a little surprising, as Gratz was one the Eagles' only reserve cornerbacks with any playing experience whatsoever. The 2013 third-rounder shouldn't have too much of problem finding another job sometime soon.

Alshon Jeffery
News
Jeffery has enjoyed his best offseason since 2013, according to wide receivers coach Mike Groh, ESPN's Tim McManus reports.

Jeffery worked under Groh in Chicago from 2013 to 2015, and the wide receivers coach says he's pleased with where Jeffery is both physically and mentally upon being reunited in Philadelphia. It's worth noting that Jeffery's lone Pro Bowl appearance came in 2013, when he caught a career-high 89 passes for 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns. Given that success, it's intruiging to hear Groh compare Jeffery's current form to that of his best offseason to date. While Jeffery still needs to solidify his chemistry with quarterback Carson Wentz ahead of the regular season, the fact that he'll be playing on a one-year contract should motivate him to have another strong campaign.

Torrey Smith
News
Smith will sign a three-year, $15 million deal with the Eagles on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Smith was most recently in San Francisco, where poor quarterback play limited him to 110 receptions for 930 yards over his two-year stint with the 49ers. He will now join a more promising situation in Philadelphia, with Carson Wentz directing the offense. The Eagles lacked a true deep threat in 2016, but got exactly that in Smith. The veteran wideout has recorded a touchdown of at least 50 yards in each of his six NFL seasons, and should open things up down the field for Wentz and a Philadelphia offense that was 24th in the league in passing yards per game last year.

Cameron Johnston
No Updates
Byron Marshall
News
Marshall carried 10 times for 42 yards in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Cowboys. He also caught one of two targets for four additional yards.

Marshall led the team in carries and yards with Ryan Mathews (back) out of commission, averaging a respectable 4.2 yards per carry against what has been a stout Cowboys run defense. After contributing in just two games this season, it remains to be seen what Marshall's role will be with the team will be next year, with Ryan Mathews expected to head the rushing attack.

Elijah Qualls
News
The Eagles selected Qualls in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 214th overall.

Qualls is squat at 6-foot-1, but he's got a surprising amount of athleticism and shows excellent strength along the defensive interior. He put up 33 reps on the bench at the Combine, which ranked among the best in this year's class. Philadelphia already has Fletcher Cox and Timmy Jernigan to clog the middle, but Qualls could be a worthwhile addition who can help in the run game.

Brandon Brooks
No Updates
Aaron Grymes
News
Grymes was waived by the Eagles on Monday.

Grymes played in only one game and didn't record any tackles after being promoted to the active roster Nov. 11. He will become a free agent if he clears waivers.

Connor Wujciak
News
Wujciak (shoulder) was waived by the Eagles on Wednesday, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

Wujciak, a first-year player out of Boston College, spent the season on injured reserve after suffering a shoulder injury last August. When he returns to full strength Wujciak could be a cheap option on the free-agent market for a team in need of depth along its defensive line.

Injury
Shoulder - Out for Week 1 at Washington
Vinny Curry
News
Curry is absent from Tuesday's practice due to an illness, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

After opening up OTAs last week with first-team reps at right defensive end, Curry is not with the team to start this week's workouts. The illness, however, is likely not severe, and the defensive should return to work with the team in the coming days. The six-year NFL veteran is coming off a 2016 campaign where he battled a knee injury but still managed to post a career-high 26 tackles.

Injury
Illness - Questionable for Week 1 at Washington
Gabe Wright
News
Wright signed a one-year contract with the Eagles on Monday, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

The Eagles have been short on depth at defensive tackle throughout offseason activities, so Wright's addition will provide the team with a little more depth. The 25-year-old has appeared in 12 career games with the Lions and Browns since being drafted in the fourth round in 2015, logging 10 total stops.

Shelton Gibson
News
The Eagles selected Gibson in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 166th overall.

Philadelphia continues to load up on deep threats this offseason, adding Torrey Smith in free agency and picking up Gibson and Mack Hollins to start Day 3 of the draft. Gibson has an innate ability to get behind defenses even though he clocked in with just a 4.5 in the 40. He led West Virginia in receiving yards last season despite having 20 less receptions than fellow wideout Daikel Shorts and also averaged a whopping 22.1 yards per catch. While Hollins has the ability to win on contested catches down the field thanks to his height, Gibson has the ability to quickly gain separation on his routes and once he gets the ball in his hands, his shiftiness and elusiveness make him a threat to find the end zone.

Derek Barnett
News
The Eagles selected Barnett in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 14th overall.

Barnett is extremely accomplished as a college defender, but at under 260 pounds with poor athletic metrics, his skill set will need to carry him in the NFL. With 33 sacks in his three seasons at Tennessee, such optimism is reasonable. He'll compete for snaps behind Brandon Graham, Chris Long and Vinny Curry.

Terrence Brooks
News
Brooks (hamstring) will not play in Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

This will be the second straight game Brooks will miss with the hamstring injury he suffered during the team's Week 9 loss to the Giants. His next opportunity to return will be Monday night against the Packers in Week 12.

Alex McCalister
News
McCalister (calf) added 20 pounds of muscle during the offseason, Philly.com's Jeff McLane reports.

McCalister, who spent the entire 2016 season on injured reserve with a calf injury, seems to be back at full strength. We'll see if the added bulk will help him climb up the depth chart, but at this point in the offseason it seems the 2016 seventh-rounder is facing a long, uphill battle for a mere roster spot.

Paul Turner
News
Turner caught two of four targets for 30 yards during Sunday's season finale against the Cowboys.

Every pass catcher in Sunday's game was overshadowed by Philadelphia TE Zach Ertz (who caught 13 passes for 139 yards and two scores Sunday), and Turner was no different. Even in Jordan Matthews' (ankle) absence, the rookie only finished fifth on the team in targets. With the 2016 season now in the books, Turner will look to build upon his late-season progress in the offseason and carve out a complementary role in the Eagles' passing attack behind Ertz and Matthews in advance of the 2017 campaign.

Jalen Mills
News
Mills played in all 16 games during 2016, and finished with 51 tackles and seven passes defended.

The rookie, who was taken in the seventh round, worked his way up the depth chart in training camp, and found a role with the team providing depth at cornerback. While he failed to tally an interception, the 22-year-old showed he had a nose for the ball by knocking away seven passes during the season. He is under contract for three more seasons, at an affordable price, so the Eagles figure to continue using Mills in their plans going forward.

Carson Wentz
News
Wentz is working out with virtually all of the Eagles' top targets in North Dakota this week, Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports reports.

Wentz enters his second season with a bevy of new and improved receiving options, including offseason signings Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, as well as rookie fifth-rounder Shelton Gibson. Along with those pass-catchers, Jordan Matthews (knee), Nelson Agholor, Bryce Treggs, Zach Ertz and Trey Burton have also joined Wentz in his home state to work on their chemistry this week. In doing so, the Eagles' offensive contingent will hope to vastly improve on last season's mark of 6.2 yards per passing attempt, which topped just one team league-wide.

Blount is listed at 250 pounds and has enjoyed plenty of success while playing in that range, but the Eagles apparently want him to slim down, perhaps sacrificing a bit of power for additional quickness. He'd still be one of the two or three heaviest tailbacks in the league, and it's unlikely the minor weight loss would significantly change the nature of his game. He had 299 carries and only seven receptions last season for the Patriots, leading the league in rushing attempts inside the 5-yard line and inside the 10-yard line. While unlikely to get that kind of volume this season, Blount figures to enter training camp in a similar role as the Eagles' early-down thumper and regular goal-line/short-yardage back. Darren Sproles and Donnel Pumphrey are two of the smallest running backs in the league, while 2016 fifth-round selection Wendell Smallwood is listed at 5-foot-10, 208 pounds. All three are candidates to cut into Blount's workload, but none is a major threat to the core aspect of his presumed role.

Najee Goode
News
Goode re-signed with the Eagles on a one-year deal Wednesday, Aaron Kasinitz of PennLive.com reports.

Goode played in all 16 games in 2016, recording 10 combined tackles and providing solid coverage as a special teams player. If he is able to ultimately make the Eagles' 53-man roster at the end of the preseason, he should find himself in a similar special teams role this coming campaign.

Jordan Hicks
News
Hicks (hand) is expected to be limited during the start of training camp, Zach Berman of Philly.com reports.

Hicks broke a bone in his hand during his honeymoon this summer, which fortunately only required a "minor procedure" to heal. Although head coach Doug Pederson doesn't expect the injury to linger into the regular season, don't be surprised if the Eagles take their time in bringing their starting middle linebacker into the fold.

Injury
Hand - Questionable for Week 1 at Washington
Jerod Evans
News
Evans (foot) reached an injury settlement with the Eagles on Monday, NFL.com's Adam Caplan reports.

Evans signed with Philadelphia as an undrafted free agent this offseason but quickly landed on IR after injuring his foot. However, after reaching an injury settlement Monday, he'll now head back to the free-agent market.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for Week 1 at Washington
Stephen Tulloch
News
Tulloch has decided to retire from the NFL, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

The 32-year-old played 11 seasons in the NFL with the Titans, Lions and Eagles. He hangs up his cleats having recorded 949 tackles, including 14.5 sacks, and five interceptions over 159 games. From 2009-13, Tulloch finished with over 100 tackles in each season and quickly became one of the top linebackers in the league.

DJ Pumphrey
News
The Eagles seem to be preparing Pumphrey for a role, as he's been taking snaps with the first-team offense, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Selected in the fourth round of the 2017 draft, Pumphrey is one of the smallest players in the league at 5-foot-8, 176 pounds. His size (or lack thereof) might lead to assumptions that the Eagles only drafted him as an eventual replacement for 33-year-old scatback Darren Sproles, but it sounds as if the team may have a more immediate role in mind. Pumphrey will still need to impress during training camp and the preseason if he wants to earn more than the occasional touch in a backfield that includes LeGarrette Blount and Wendell Smallwood, in addition to Sproles.

C.J. Smith
News
Smith was signed by the Eagles from the practice squad Thursday, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

While starting cornerback Leodis McKelvin nurses a hamstring injury, the Eagles will promote Smith as a depth option in the secondary.

Ryan Mathews
News
Mathews (neck) has been excused from training camp, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

This all but confirms Mathews will be sent packing once he passes a physical to prove he's recovered from the neck injury that curtailed his 2016 season, since cutting the 2010 first-rounder would save Philadelphia roughly $4 million in cap space. However, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reported that Mathews likely won't be re-evaluated until "sometime in August", so it still may be a while until that comes to fruition. For now, the Eagles will open training camp with LeGarrette Blount, Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood leading the charge at running back.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for Week 1 at Washington
Patrick Robinson
News
Robinson (groin) participated in the Eagles' offseason program, Aaron Kasinitz of PennLive.com reports. "It feels great to be healthy," Robinson said. "Just being able to do the things I've done over the years and trying to do everything I can to help this team."

Robinson missed nine games in 2016 due to a groin injury and subsequently finished the season with one of the lowest stat lines of his career. Fortunately, he's now healthy again and is primed to open the 2017 campaign in a starting role.

Tre Sullivan

Brent Celek
News
Celek agreed to a decrease in his 2017 base salary from $4 million to $3 million, CSN Philly reports.

The move opens up more cap space for the Eagles, and the 32-year-old remains with the only NFL team he has ever known. Although listed as the number two tight end on the Eagles' depth chart, Celek was surpassed as a receiving option last season by third-year TE Trey Burton, who was targeted 60 times compared to Celek's 19. Barring injury to starter Zach Ertz, Celek's 2017 role should mostly come as a blocker.

Joe Walker
News
Walker (knee) is out for the season now that his injury has been confirmed to be a torn ACL, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Walker had an MRI on Friday that confirmed his injury. His absence leaves the Eagles thin at the top of the linebacker position with just two middle linebackers left on the roster. Ed Reynolds figures to see extra reps with Walker out.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 1 at Washington
Nigel Bradham
News
Bradham had just one tackle (no solo) in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Cowboys.

Week 17 was not a good one for Bradham. He failed to get a solo tackle for the first time all season, despite playing in every one of the team's defensive snaps. Despite his rough day, Bradham finished the season as the team's leading tackler with 102 on the season, and he played in 97.1 percent of the team's defensive snaps. He also forced two fumbles and had five passes defensed, including an interception, while playing in all 16 games this season.

Jordan Matthews
News
According to coach Doug Pederson, Matthews (knee) will be limited to start training camp, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Matthews missed the final three weeks of Philly's offseason program while dealing with tendinitis in his left knee. As the Eagles open training camp this week, Matthews is apparently still dealing with some discomfort, which will restrict his activity level early on. Compared to new wideouts Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, though, Matthews at least has a year of experience with quarterback Carson Wentz, making his occasional absences a bit easier to swallow.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 1 at Washington
Matt McGloin
News
McGloin agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Eagles on Monday.

McGloin returns to his home state after spending his first four seasons with the Raiders, for whom he started seven of his 13 games played. Although the 27-year-old has featured in just six contests since his rookie campaign, McGloin offers the Eagles an experienced third option behind starting quarterback Carson Wentz and backup Nick Foles, cementing their depth at the position ahead of offseason activities.

Mitchell White

Fletcher Cox
News
Cox sat out of Wednesday's practice due to a neck strain, but is back at Thursday's practice, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Cox likely won't be a full participant Thursday, but the neck strain appears to be a minor issue at the worst. Gabe Wright and Elijah Qualls figure to see additional reps in practice with Cox sidelined.

Trey Burton
News
Burton signed his one-year, $2.8 million tender on Monday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Burton had his best season as a pro in 2016, catching 37 passes for 327 yards and a touchdown as the Eagles third option at tight end. He'll remain firmly behind Zach Ertz on the depth chart but he could once again see an expanded role in the offense in 2017.

Jason Peters
News
Peters signed a contract extension through 2019 with the Eagles on Wednesday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Peters will be entering the 2017 season at 35 years old, but the Eagles have enough faith in the veteran offensive lineman to keep him around for an additional year in 2019.

Destiny Vaeao
News
Vaeao is dealing with a calf injury and missed Tuesday's minicamp practice, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The details on the injury remain unknown but new addition Gabe Wright has been getting a lot of work on the field in Vaeao's absence. Look for more updates to come as information is made available.

Injury
Calf - Questionable for Week 1 at Washington
Wendell Smallwood
News
Fourth-round rookie Donnel Pumphrey got more reps than Smallwood (knee) during the offseason program, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.

At 5-foot-10, 208 pounds, Smallwood is the closest thing the Eagles have to a typical NFL lead runner in a backfield that also includes Darren Sproles, the 170-pound Pumphrey and 250-pound thumper LeGarrette Blount. Smallwood represents a happy medium in terms of size, speed, pass catching and pass blocking, but his lack of a defining trait could leave him without a clear role, as Blount figures to get the short-yardage work and a good chunk of early down carries, with some combination of Sproles and Pumphrey handling the passing downs. Smallwood is probably the only one of the bunch with three-down potential, but his lack of specialization will probably work against him unless one or two of the other running backs is unavailable. An injury to Blount may represents Smallwood's best path to a sizable role, as Pumphrey profiles as the long-term replacement for Sproles.

Marcus Johnson
News
Johnson figures to benefit from Friday's release of wideout Dorian Green-Beckham, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Johnson was undrafted out of Texas and released following the preseason last year, but he signed a reserve/future contract with the Eagles in January in hopes of making the team this time around. Not only did Johnson impress when handed an expanded role while Jordan Matthews (knee) was sidelined for most of OTAs, but his progress has now been rewarded with a slide up Philadelphia's depth chart upon DGB's release. Of course, the 22-year-old will need to maintain his improved level to earn a roster spot ahead of the upcoming campaign, but Friday's transaction seems to favor his chances.

Leodis McKelvin
News
McKelvin was released by the Eagles on Wednesday.

McKelvin signed a two-year, $6 million contract with Philadelphia last offseason. In 13 games with the Eagles in 2016, he recorded 43 tackles and two interceptions, including one pick six. He saw the field on 57.5 percent of the team's defensive snaps but routinely struggled in man-to-man coverage. He'll be 32 come the start of the 2017 regular season.

Marcus Smith
News
The Eagles declined to exercise Smith's fifth-year option, Philly.com's Zach Berman reports.

The Eagles made Smith their first-round draft pick back in 2014 in an effort to shore up their pass rush at the time. However, he's recorded just four sacks throughout his first three years in the league and currently sits near the bottom of the depth chart, making his fifth-year option an easy one to pass on.

Chris Maragos
News
Maragos signed a three year extension worth $6 million ($2.25 million guaranteed) with the Eagles on Wednesday, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports.

Maragos' contract extension also includes around an extra $300K with Pro Bowl incentives, as the backup safety intends on spending three more years in Philadelphia. Through 10 games so far this season, he's notched just six tackles (four solo), but serves as a veteran tool for the team's special teams unit.

Rodney McLeod
News
McLeod recorded four tackles (four solo) and a pass defensed in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Cowboys.

McLeod's game Sunday was representative of his season, with him chipping in in the form of pass defense and sure tackling. He finished the year with 83 tackles, seven passes defensed, including three interceptions, and a sack, all of which were career highs. He played in 99.4 percent of Philadelphia's defensive snaps on the season, second only to fellow starting safety Malcolm Jenkins.

Rasul Douglas
News
Eagles' third-round selection Rasul Douglas was on the field for the team's nickel formation in the first week of OTAs, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philly reports.

Returning starter Jalen Mills and offseason acquisition Patrick Robinson started in the base package, with Mills moving inside in the nickel and Douglas replacing him outside. The rookie apparently acquitted himself well, and if he continues to do so could easily move into the starting lineup should Robinson continue his injury-prone ways or underwhelm as he has up to now. Douglas could also face competition from Ron Brooks (quad) and 2017 second-round pick Sidney Jones (Achilles)once they recover from their injuries, however.

Charles Walker
News
Walker, who is dealing with a knee injury, was waived by the Eagles on Thursday, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Walker was waived by the Eagles, with the team needing to open up a roster spot for free agent addition LeGarrette Blount. If Walker goes unclaimed on waivers, he'll revert to injured reserve.
