Teams can start assembling their practice squads as of noon Sunday. We’ll keep this thread updated as Eagles-related news comes in.

Updated (5:43 p.m.): A city weeps.

#Jaguars[2] have agreed to sign UDFA RB Henry Josey to their practice squad, per source. Good job by Jags since #Redskins[3] also had interest.

— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) August 31, 2014[4]

And no, Josey wasn’t signed because they play the Eagles in Week 1. They plan to carry him all season. And if needed, to 53.

Caplan also reports that Alex Henery went unclaimed.

Updated (4:42 p.m.): The Eagles announced the signing of eight practice squad players: Offensive linemen Josh Andrews and Kevin Graf, defensive lineman Wade Keliikipi, safety Ed Reynolds, linebacker Emmanuel Acho, wide receivers Will Murphy and Quron Pratt and running back Matthew Tucker. Each player was with the Eagles this summer.

Teams are allowed to have a total of 10 practice squad players this year.

Updated (4:29 p.m.):

RB Matthew Tucker to #Eagles[6] PS, for those asking.

We are up to six known practice squad guys: Tucker, Ed Reynolds, Emmanuel Acho, Kevin Graf, Quron Pratt and Josh Andrews. Updated (3:40 p.m.): The Eagles added tackle Kevin Graf to the practice squad, per sources. The rookie out of USC was picked up by the Eagles following the draft. — TM Updated (2:56 p.m.):

LB Emmanuel Acho said he’s about to sign to the #Eagles[6] practice squad. — Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) August 31, 2014[8]

Updated (2:42 p.m.): Safety Ed Reynolds has cleared waivers and the Eagles plan on adding him to the practice squad, according to a league source. The fifth-round pick out of Stanford was released on Saturday as the team trimmed its roster to 53. — TM

Updated (2:37): 

FB Emil Igwenagu is signing with the #Lions[9] practice squad, according to his agent, Dennis Boyev. — Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) August 31, 2014[10]

Ex-Eagle “@dpbrugler[11]: Cowboys awarded OL Donald Hawkins off waivers … light feet & aggressive, but suspect functional strength at OT & OG” — Sam Lynch (@shlynch) August 31, 2014[12]

Updated (2:14 p.m.): The first two known additions to the Eagles’ practice squad:

Eagles sign center-guard Josh Andrews to their practice squad, according to his agent, Brett Tessler — Aaron Wilson (@RavensInsider) August 31, 2014[13]

Quron Pratt will sign with Eagles practice squad, per league source. Palmyra native had interest elsewhere. — Zach Berman (@ZBerm) August 31, 2014[14]

Updated (2:04 p.m.): Another Eagle claimed off waivers.

Damaris Johnson claimed by Texans — Les Bowen (@LesBowen) August 31, 2014[15]

Updated (1:48 p.m.): Some news on fan favorite Henry Josey:

RB Henry Josey cleared waivers, I’m told. — Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) August 31, 2014[16]

Updated (1:35 Sunday): Great story. NFL dream still alive.

DE Alejandro Villanueva signed to #Steelers[17] practice squad. — Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) August 31, 2014[18]

Updated (1:08 Sunday): Damion Square, waived by the Eagles on Saturday, is reportedly joining Andy Reid in Kansas City.

Updated (1:05 Sunday): Checked in on Ifeanyi Momah‘s status. Sounds like he cleared waivers. No word on if he will join the Eagles practice squad yet but seems like it could be a decent option for him. Apparently, G.J. Kinne will not be added to the practice squad.

A little surprised the Eagles aren’t adding G.J. Kinne to their practice squad. Knows the offense, fits the offense, had good preseason. — Reuben Frank (@RoobCSN) August 31, 2014[21]
