The Philadelphia Eagles made major changes to their practice squad again.
According to a report from ESPN's Adam Caplan, the Eagles signed cornerback Duke Thomas to their practice squad. In addition, the Eagles brought back linebacker Don Cherry to the practice squad, who they released last week to make room for offensive lineman Darrell Greene.

Thomas was signed by the Houston Texans as an undrafted rookie free agent, but reached an injury settlement with the team in September. A two-time All-Big 12 selection, Thomas finished with 173 tackles (six for loss) one sack, seven interceptions and 20 pass breakups at the University of Texas.
To make room for Cherry, the Eagles released Greene from the practice squad. Greene was paid the highest amount of guaranteed money among undrafted free agents when the Eagles signed him in April. He has been released from the practice squad on multiple occasions this season.
Cherry, a Villanova product, was signed by the Eagles days before training camp began in July. Before the Eagles signed Stephen Tulloch, Cherry was in line to be the backup middle linebacker to Jordan Hicks after Joe Walker went down with a torn ACL.
The Eagles also released fullback Andrew Bonnet to make room for Thomas. Bonnet, a rookie from North Dakota State, was signed to the Eagles practice squad a week before the season.
