Hector has appeared in six games across multiple stints with the Eagles this season and takes the roster spot of Jalen Mills (foot), who was placed on injured reserve. The 24-year-old should play a rotational role on the defensive line as Michael Bennett (foot) and Timmy Jernigan (back) are questionable for Sunday's game at Dallas.
Hector was placed on waivers by the Eagles on Tuesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

The undrafted rookie from South Florida brings necessary depth at defensive tackle, with Destiny Vaeao (undisclosed) on injured reserve and Haloti Ngata (calf) questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
