Aiken caught five of his six targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Buccaneers. Aiken just re-signed with the Eagles this week with Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) set to miss another game and caught the first pass of the game from Nick Foles for a three-yard gain. The 29-year-old would see more action after Mike Wallace left the first quarter with an ankle injury. If Jeffery and Wallace are forced to miss more time, Aiken might be in line for more work against the Colts in Week 3.
Aiken signed a contract with the Eagles on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports. Aiken spent the preseason with the Eagles but was released during roster cut-downs. Don't expect the veteran to see much action on offense as he will likely serve more of a depth role.
Aiken (hamstring) was released by the Eagles without an injury designation Monday. Since Aiken is healthy, he'll be free to sign with another team at any time. His most likely destination would be a practice squad.
Aiken agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Eagles, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Following a one-year stint with the Colts, Aiken will look to resurrect his career with the reigning Super Bowl champs. Given the Eagles' crowded receiving room along with Aiken's underwhelming production a season ago, it seems more likely than not that he'll fail to make the Week 1 roster. Aiken's best season came with the Ravens in 2015, when he hauled in 75 passes for 944 yards and five scores.
Aiken (hamstring) doesn't have a designation in advance of Sunday's game against the Titans. Aiken has mostly been a persona non grata in the Colts' passing attack this season. As evidence, he's earned 62 percent of the offensive snaps but turned the third-most targets on the team (38) into a measly 14 catches for 131 yards and no touchdowns. Although his health isn't in question, he's barely worthy of consideration in any format.
