The Eagles placed Pumphrey (hamstring) on injured reserve Friday.

Facing a timetable of 4-to-6 weeks and without a role in the Philadelphia offense, Pumphrey isn't worth keeping on the 53-man roster while the team waits for his hamstring to heal. The timeline suggests he could return later in the season, but it might make sense for the team simply to keep him on injured reserve unless Darren Sproles is injured. Pumphrey seemed to be developing a bit slower than expected even before he suffered the injury.
