We’ll keep this post updated throughout Friday and Saturday with Eagles cuts. The team has to get the roster down to 53 by 4 p.m. Saturday.
Part of the process for the Eagles over the next several days will be tracking which players are let go by other teams.
To that end, former Bills quarterback Thad Lewis reportedly had a tryout with the team this week, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today. Lewis spent two seasons (2011 and 2012) with the Browns when Pat Shurmur was the head coach there. Read more »
Matthew Tucker and Kenjon Barner were hurt on back-to-back plays in the second quarter Thursday night against the Jets.
After a four-yard run off the left end, Tucker went to the sidelines and was clearly in discomfort. It was later revealed that he sustained a shoulder injury. Barner replaced Tucker and rushed for five yards on the next play but hurt his ankle on the run and limped off. Tucker returned briefly but was still clearly hampered. Henry Josey and Damaris Johnson carried the load the rest of the way at running back. Josey finished with 121 yards on 22 carries (5.5 average).
Chris Polk practiced this week and was hoping to play even despite not being all the way back from a hamstring injury suffered early in training camp. But he sat out. After the game, he explained that the hamstring just wasn’t ready. Read more »

For most of the night it was one or the other booting kicks into the net as the other sat nearby. In the first half it was basically all Parkey. He handled the kickoffs and was called on for both field goal attempts. The rookie converted both of them, including a 54-yarder that made it with room to spare.
Henery kicked off to start the second half and it was his turn in the rotation when the Eagles began to drive on the following series. But special teams coach Dave Fipp told Parkey to be ready in the event that another long field goal opportunity presented itself. Sure enough, the drive stalled and there was a 53-yarder to be had.
