The Eagles released running back David Fluellen on Wednesday, the team announced.

The 5-11, 224-pound rookie out of Toledo was picked up as an undrafted free agent this offseason. He had six carries for 25 yards in the preseason opener against the Bears and also had a receiving touchdown in the game. An injury forced him to sit out against New England.

Fluellen was part of a crowded backfield where Chris Polk, Matthew Tucker and Henry Josey are all competing for a spot. The Eagles added another player to the mix Tuesday when they acquired former Oregon running back Kenjon Barner from the Panthers for a conditional seventh-round pick.

The Eagles’ roster number currently stands at 89. Teams must trim their rosters to 75 on August 26th, then down to 53 on August 30.

Here’s an Animated GIF of Chip Kelly Diving Into a Pool of Ice Water

chip-ice-bucket

Yesterday, the entire Philadelphia Eagles team took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The team did it as one: Much of the team climbed into a giant pool filled with ice water and had dump trucks pour more ice water on them.

But the best part of the Eagles’ Ice Bucket Challenge is shown in the animated GIF above, which shows coach Chip Kelly diving into the pool head-first before any of his players did.

Kelly does the ice bucket challenge like he calls plays: As quickly as possible. Plus, you have to believe those dump trucks had several different ways to pour ice on the Eagles players. Kelly uses packaged plays everywhere!

WATCH: Shirtless Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff Reunite for “Summertime”

Will Smith’s oldest son Trey (aka DJ AcE) was performing in Las Vegas this weekend with DJ Jazzy Jeff, when his dad came on stage to surprise the audience with a performance of his and Jazzy Jeff’s 1991 hit “Summertime.”

“We haven’t been on stage in forever,” Smith told DJ Jazzy Jeff, before he pulls up his shirt to show the fans his abs and tears into the song. Eventually he just takes his shirt completely off, and he doesn’t look too bad for a 45-year-old pops.

Check out the video above (song starts around 2:10), and one from later in the day, when he dances to Sugarhill Gang’s “Apache (Jump On It), below.

Still Standing: Celek Sets Tone For Eagles

Brent Celek scores in the first quarter.

Brent Celek set up in-line next to right tackle Allen Barbre. When Nick Foles took the snap, he released and headed up field before turning diagonally to the sideline on a corner route.

Foles scanned the field, tried to move the safety with his eyes and then came back to Celek. The eighth-year tight end turned his body towards the line of scrimmage, reached his hands over his head and made the grab for a 22-yard gain. Just as he did, safety Patrick Chung lowered his shoulder into Celek’s chest, while cornerback Malcolm Butler sandwiched him and knocked his helmet off.

Celek rose to his feet, turned towards the end zone full of Patriots fans, balled his fists and let out a yell.

“When a guy like that makes a catch like that, takes a hit and helmet falls off and jumps right up, it’s a boost to everybody,” said Nick Foles. “…With the young guys seeing that, they see the fire you need. It just gives you something. I know when I saw that, it just pumped me even more than I was because one of my teammates sacrificed for us at that moment and just got up and was ready to go. He’s just got that toughness. He’s very unique.”

It’s a scene Eagles fans have seen play out for years. Celek has played in 117 games for the Eagles (regular season and postseason). This was the first quarter of a preseason game in August, but he was playing the way he always does. Read more »
