Hunt Waived/Injured; Roster Down To 75

The Eagles waived/injured outside linebacker Phillip Hunt Tuesday to get their roster down to 75 prior to the 4 p.m. deadline.

If Hunt goes unclaimed by 4 p.m. Wednesday, he will revert back to the Eagles injured reserve list.

The 27-year-old suffered a partially-torn ACL against the Patriots in the preseason opener. He was the fourth Eagles player to suffer a torn ACL this preseason, joining Jeremy Maclin, Arrelious Benn and fellow linebacker Jason Phillips.

The roster must be trimmed to 53 players by August 31.

The team waived/injured cornerback Eddie Whitley on Sunday. They will find out this afternoon if he has been claimed or will revert back to IR.
