Position Listing
Bryce Treggs
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
Agholor (ankle) will have to compete for playing time in a receiving corps that now includes free-agent signings Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, reports.

With Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith joining slot receiver Jordan Matthews, it's hard to envision Agholor opening training camp as anything more than the No. 4 receiver. The 20th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft has just 59 catches for 648 yards and three touchdowns through two seasons, with a pathetic mark of just 5.7 yards per target. The Eagles might be open to trading Agholor, but he wouldn't fetch anything more than a middle or late-round pick.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai
No Updates
Taylor Hart
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
Kendricks (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Kendricks injured his quad during Friday's practice, and the injury will bring an end to his season. He'll finish the year with 32 tackles, one pass defensed, and one fumble recovery in 15 games.

Quadriceps - Questionable for the start of training camp
Caleb Sturgis
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
Titans right tackle Chance Warmack, who sprained his knee Sunday in Cleveland, will not play in Week 3 against Indianpolis, per ESPN.

He was on crutches after the loss to the Browns.

Ken Whisenhunt said Monday that Jamon Meredith, who replaced Warmack after he went down, will continue to start at that position.

Connor Barwin
Barwin signed a one-year deal worth up to $6.5 million with the Rams on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Barwin's signing addresses a major need for the Rams after the team jettisoned a pair of veteran edge rushers on the first day of free agency. The 30-year-old Barwin is coming off one of his least productive seasons as a pro, racking up 5.0 sacks over 16 games. That said, Barwin hasn't missed a game in six full seasons and he will add a veteran presence to an otherwise young defensive corps.

Darrell Greene

Aziz Shittu
No Updates
Ron Brooks
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.

Quadriceps - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kamu Grugier-Hill
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
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
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 trade well-regarded backup Chase Daniel to another team this offseason.

Kenjon Barner
The Chargers and Barner (hamstring) agreed to terms of a contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Seeking some stability behind Melvin Gordon (knee) following the departure of Danny Woodhead (knee), the Chargers have added Barner to a backfield that includes holdover Kenneth Farrow (shoulder). Barner is less experienced in a lead role than Farrow, who earned two starts down the stretch last season when Gordon was lost for the season with a sprained PCL and hip strain. At the very least, though, Barner's kick-return chops will be valuable after averaging 30.8 yards on his nine attempts with the Eagles during the 2016 campaign.

Beau Allen
Allen will enter the starting lineup at defensive tackle in Sunday's Week 7 matchup with the Vikings, Geoff Mosher of 97.5 FM The Fanatic reports.

Allen will fill in for Bennie Logan (groin), primary functioning as a run stuffer up the middle. The third-year player has accrued six tackles through five games this season.

Allen Barbre
Barbre (hamstring) should be completely healed in advance of the 2017 season, CSN Philly reports.

Barbre sat out last season's regular season finale after aggravating a hamstring injury in Week 16. While the injury is not expected to persist into the 2017 campaign, it still isn't clear how much of the Eagles' offseason program he could miss.

Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Josh LeRibeus
The Redskins listed the following players as inactive for Week 17’s game against the Cowboys: Chris Thompson, Kenny Okoro, Josh LeRibeus, Rishaw Johnson, Travian Robertson, Leonard Hankerson and Steve Beauharnais .
Anthony Denham
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
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
Williams signed a future/reserve contract with the Eagles on Wednesday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Williams spent time with the Chargers last preseason but failed to make the 53-man roster. As he enters his second season in the league, he'll look to find his way onto the Eagles' depth chart.

Justin Hamilton
No Updates
Darren Sproles
In a press conference from the NFL Combine on Wednesday, March 1, head coach Doug Pederson confirmed that Sproles will return to the Eagles in 2017.

Sproles entered last season as the club's change-of-pace back but became Pederson's most-trusted option in the ground game as the year wore on, as evidenced by earning 45 percent of the offensive snaps, versus 25 percent for Ryan Mathews (neck). With the oft-injured Mathews perhaps on the way out of Philadelphia, the team will look to bring in additional talent to the backfield via the draft or free agency. However, with bigger needs elsewhere on the roster, the Eagles could end up using Wendell Smallwood (knee) as their primary ball carrier in the upcoming campaign. Either way, Sproles will probably be slotted in the same scatback role that he occupied at the beginning of this past season. He finished 2016 with 438 yards on 94 carries and added 427 more yards on 52 receptions. He also scored two touchdowns each on the ground and through the air.

Dallas Thomas
Dolphins rookie Jamil Douglas continues to gain first-team snaps at left guard in OTAs. 

Douglas is competing with Dallas Thomas for the starting job. Over the last few weeks, he's gone from occasional snaps to a 50/50 split of starting snaps. 

"I like the fact that when he’s been in there he doesn’t make a lot of mental mistakes,” coach Joe Philbin said, per the Palm Beach Post. “I think he’s grasped the system relatively well. I think his play speed’s been pretty good. He doesn’t seem to hesitate a lot and that’s a good sign for a young guy. ... I really like what I see."

Bryan Braman
Braman is currently in the free-agent market, 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.

Dorial Green-Beckham
Green-Beckham will have to compete for playing time in a receiving corps that now includes free-agent signings Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, reports.

The Eagles' offseason moves suggest the team has little to no faith in Green-Beckham and Nelson Agholor, both of whom were incredibly inefficient with their limited targets last season. With Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Matthews and Torrey Smith likely to serve as the top three wideouts, Green-Beckham could find himself on the roster bubble.

Josh Andrews
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
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.

Steven Means
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
Graham had two tackles in the Eagles Week 17 win over the Cowboys.

Graham's two tackles Sunday were part of his 59 on the season, a new career high for the seven-year veteran. He also recorded 5.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and a pass defensed this season, right around his career average in each category. He'll enter the third year of his four-year contract next season.

Dwayne Gratz
Gratz signed with the Eagles on Monday.

Gratz joins Philadelphia after playing three games for the Jaguars and spending some time on the Rams roster after being claimed off waivers back in October. Although he was ultimately let go by Los Angeles, the fourth-year pro figures to add depth to the Eagles secondary.

Aaron Neary
No Updates
Stefen Wisniewski
Wisniewski signed a three-year deal Friday with the Eagles, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Wisniewski is a versatile offensive lineman that gave the Eagles depth at multiple positions last season with his ability to slide in at center or guard. Expect him to play a similar role in Philadelphia in 2017 and beyond with his new deal.

Alshon Jeffery
Jeffery is signing a one-year, $14 million deal with the Eagles,'s Josina Anderson reports.

Coming off a pair of disappointing, injury-plagued seasons, Jeffery clearly believes he can boost his value and then cash in with a multi-year contract to his liking next offseason. Despite being hampered by a slew of lower-body issues, Jeffery produced 1,628 receiving yards in 21 games (77.5 YPG) the past two seasons, after posting back-to-back 1,000-yard showings in 2013 and 2014. The Eagles also added Torrey Smith to a receiving corps that already included Jordan Matthews and TE Zach Ertz, but Jeffery will be the clear favorite to lead the team targets if he's healthy. Eagles QB Carson Wentz could take a big step forward in his second season.

Torrey Smith
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.

Byron Marshall
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.

Brandon Brooks
Texans guard Brandon Brooks (ankle, probable) played in Houston's Week 4 loss to Atlanta. The Texans' banged up offensive line got a lift with both Brooks and Duane Brown (thumb) getting back on the field.
Aaron Grymes
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
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.

Shoulder - Out for the start of training camp
Vinny Curry
Curry (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Browns.

Curry was a limited participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but upgraded to full participation in Friday's session. Despite the "questionable" designation, Curry will suit up and serve as a reserve defensive end.

Terrence Brooks
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.

Lane Johnson
Johnson returned to the Eagles' facilities Monday following a 10-game suspension, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Johnson received the ban for a second violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. The Redskins were given an Exempt/Commissioner Permission in order to put off releasing a player from the 53-man roster, but once a move is made, he'll be available to play again Thursday for the first time since Week 5. Due to a multitude of injuries at right tackle, head coach Doug Pederson expects Johnson to slot in as the starter against the Giants.

Alex McCalister
McCalister (calf) was placed on the Eagles' injured reserve list on Monday, reports.

A seventh-rounder from this year's draft class, McCalister suffered the injury sometime during practice. He now figures to enter the 2016 campaign with a "redshirt" approach and try out for the team next season.

Calf - Questionable for the start of training camp
Isaac Seumalo
No Updates
Rick Lovato
Lovato was signed by the Eagles on Monday.

Lovato joins Philadelphia after fellow long snapper Jon Dorenbos broke his wrist during Sunday's loss to the Redskins. As a result, he should immediately play a special teams role in Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Paul Turner
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
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
Wentz played through pain in his throwing elbow during the 2016 season, Jeff McClane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Wentz started all 16 games during his rookie season, throwing for 3,782 yards and 16 touchdowns on 379-for-607 passing. The team is unsure if Wentz's throwing motion or the sheer number of passes were the reason for his elbow soreness, but the issue was significant enough that the young passer had to take additional time off from throwing after the season ended. The soreness won't in any way impact his availability for offseason workouts, but it may be something the team tries to avoid in the future.

Matt Tobin
Tobin was placed on injured reserve Monday after suffering a knee injury Sunday against the Redskins.

Tobin sustained a Grade 2 MCL sprain during Sunday's loss, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The fourth-year pro started one game this season.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Rasheed Bailey
Bailey (ankle) reached an injury settlement with the Chargers on Friday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Bailey signed with the Chargers in early-August, but didn't see a minute of preseason action. The agreement removes him from the team's injured reserve list, leaving him free to sign with another team.

Terrell Watson
Watson ran nine times for 28 yards and a score in the Eagles' season finale against the Cowboys.

With three of its top four running backs ruled out, Philadelphia deployed a three-pronged rushing attack on Sunday behind the likes of Watson, Darren Sproles and Byron Marshall. Each player received only nine or 10 carries, though, so there wasn't a clear leader of the bunch. With the regular season now all wrapped up, Turner will look to stay injury-free throughout the offseason in hopes to secure a role in the Eagles' run game for the 2017 campaign.

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

Don Cherry
No Updates
Jordan Hicks
Hicks recorded five tackles (all solo) and two interceptions in Sunday's win over Dallas.

Hicks had his first career multi-interception game Sunday, ending the season with a team-leading five interceptions. He also was second on the team with 85 tackles. Hicks played on 95.2 percent of the Eagles defensive snaps this season and will look to build on his strong campaign come time for the 2017 season.

Andrew Bonnet
No Updates
Stephen Tulloch
Tulloch signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Eagles on Sunday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Released by the Lions a few weeks before training camp in a transaction that saved the team approximately $5.5 million against the 2016 salary cap, Tulloch still made out pretty well from a financial perspective, getting $1.75 in guaranteed money from Philadelphia, without having to go through the rigor of training camp. The 31-year-old linebacker will be reunited with Eagles DC Jim Schwartz, who served as Tulloch's head coach with the Lions from 2011 to 2013. Tulloch has overwhelmingly worked as an inside linebacker throughout his 10-year career, but with Jordan Hicks seemingly entrenched as an every-down player in the middle, Tulloch could push to take snaps from weakside linebacker Mychal Kendricks and/or strongside linebacker Nigel Bradham. It's also possible Tulloch will just provide depth at multiple positions, as the Eagles previously had minimal experience behind their starting trio of linebackers. Although he topped 100 tackles in each of his last six healthy seasons, Tulloch probably won't have much IDP appeal even if he ends up starting, as he's become a liability on passing downs in the latter stage of his career.

Donnie Jones
Jones signed a three-year, $5.5 million contract extension with the Eagles on Wednesday, Adam Caplan of reports.

Jones' contract includes $1 million in guaranteed money along with a $300K Pro Bowl incentive bonus. The former seventh-round pick is now 36 years old and provides the Eagles' special teams unit with a veteran presence.

C.J. Smith
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.

Chase Daniel
Daniel will visit the Jets on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The Eagles signed Daniel to a three-year, $21 million contract (including $12 million guaranteed) last offseason, only to release him after an uneventful 2016 campaign in which he attempted just one pass. The 30-year-old career backup won't be paid so handsomely this time around, but the Jets likely would give him a shot to fight for the starting job. The Eagles signed Nick Foles to serve as a more affordable backup to Carson Wentz.

Ryan Mathews
Eagles GM Howie Roseman said last week that Mathews was doing well as he recovers from surgery on his herniated disk, Calkins Media reports. "Ryan is doing great and we full expect him to be ready to play," Roseman noted at the Combine. "He's under contract and it's as simple as that at this time."

It has been speculated that Mathews will be released to bring the Eagles $4 million in cap relief, but Roseman would not comment on the situation since league rules prohibit cutting an injured player. The running back will be entering his age-30 season in 2017 and has always struggled with injuries and ball-control issues, but he should be healthy by the time next season begins and able to contribute wherever he ends up. Wendell Smallwood (knee) and Darren Sproles remain in the fold for the Eagles, but the club is likely to try and bring in additional help via free agency or the draft, if Mathews is in fact let go once he's healthy, according to

Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brent Celek
Celek had one catch for nine yards on two targets in Sunday's 27-13 win over Dallas.

Celek hasn't seen much action this season as the third pass catching option at tight end for the Eagles, behind Zach Ertz and Trey Burton. In what was his 10th season, Celek finished with 14 catches on 19 targets for 155 yards and no touchdowns, all career lows.

Joe Walker
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.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Nigel Bradham
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
Matthews will primarily operate from the slot, with free-agent acquisitions Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith lining up outside, reports.

The 2014 second-round selection has mostly worked from the slot to this point in his career, but he's also taken some snaps outside -- where he's far less effective -- due to the lack of surrounding talent in Philadelphia's offense. Matthews can now settle in as a full-time slot man, free to focus on what he does best. However, the offseason additions do add significant competition for targets in an offense that also features TE Zach Ertz as a crucial component of the passing game. Entering the final season of his rookie contract, Matthews is in real danger of drawing fewer than 100 targets for the first time in his career.

Fletcher Cox
Cox had three tackles in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Cowboys.

Cox finished the 2016 season with 6.5 sacks, 43 tackles, and a forced fumble in 16 games played. Those totals are down from his 9.5 sacks, 71 tackles, and three forced fumbles in 2015, but he was hobbled by ankle injuries at times during the season. He'll look to rebound with an improved season in 2017.

Trey Burton
The Eagles will place a second-round restricted free agent tender on Burton, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Burton is a key special teams contributor who also caught a career-high 37 passes last season, but it's still highly unlikely any team would be willing to surrender a second-round pick for his services. He thus figures to be back with the Eagles at a salary around $2.8 million -- a number that could be reduced if the two sides work out a long-term extension. Burton is clearly second to Zach Ertz in the team's pecking order at tight end.

Jason Peters
Peters (forearm) returned to Sunday's game against Seattle.

Peters exited in the first quarter Sunday to have his forearm x-rayed and was cleared to return early in the second quarter.

Wendell Smallwood
With Ryan Mathews (neck) likely to be released, Smallwood (knee) and Darren Sproles will be left as the leaders of the Philadelphia backfield, CSN Philadelphia reports.

The Eagles are expected to release Mathews once he can pass a physical, which could be a matter of weeks or months. Smallwood and Sproles both figure to have roles next season, but the team likely also hopes to acquire a bigger back to replace Mathews -- be it through free agency or the draft. Smallwood had 77 carries for 312 yards (4.1 YPC) and a touchdown in 13 games as a rookie, adding six catches for 55 yards on 12 targets. He missed the final three weeks of the year with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, but the issue should clear up before the start of OTAs, if it hasn't healed already. Smallwood's 2017 outlook largely will depend on Philadelphia's other transactions in the coming months.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jason Kelce
Kelce (foot) did not practice Wednesday after receiving a cortisone shot Monday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Kelce expects to be back at practice Thursday as he continues to deal with plantar fasciitis. He appears to be on pace for Sunday's tilt against the Vikings.

David Watford
No Updates
Marcus Johnson
Johnson has signed a reserve/future contract with the Eagles.

Johnson went undrafted out of Texas in 2016 but latched on with the Eagles later on in the summer. However, he was ultimately released in early September without making a game appearance and is now set to battle for one of the last roster spots once again.

Leodis McKelvin
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
Smith (shoulder) was removed from the Eagles' injury report Friday.

Smith suffered a shoulder injury last week against the Packers, but was full go in every practice this week, suggesting the ailment wasn't serious in the slightest.

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

Jon Dorenbos
Dorenbos was placed on injured reserve Monday.

Dorenbos suffered a broken wrist during Sunday's loss to the Redskins. With that injury rendering him incapable of long-snapping, Dorenbos will miss the rest of this season. In a corresponding roster move, the Eagles added Rick Lovato on Monday.
