The Eagles did not make a trade for a safety prior to Tuesday’s deadline, but it appears they are still poking around.

According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, the Eagles are bringing in former Jaguars safety Chris Prosinski for a look Wednesday.

A former captain at Wyoming, Prosinski was drafted by Jacksonville in the fourth round back in 2011 and appeared in 48 games for the Jags, registering 93 tackles, an interception and six passes defensed. The special teamer was waived/injured back in September after hurting his elbow.

If he’s signed, it would likely be for depth/special teams purposes.

Nate Allen is day-to-day with a hamstring injury. Earl Wolff would almost certainly get the nod if Allen can’t play against Houston. The Eagles also have Chris Maragos on the roster and fifth-round pick Ed Reynolds on the practice squad.

“Just working on honing my craft every day,” said Reynolds. “Covering a lot of slots, covering a lot of tight ends [in practice] which is a good thing for me, that was one of things I had to work on coming from Stanford because I played a lot of deep [safety].

“I prepare every week where if anything happens I’m ready to go. Obviously with Nate being down, don’t know how serious that is, and Earl’s pretty healthy, but overall I just have to come to work every day prepared so if my number is called then I’m ready to go out there and there’s no dropoff.”

Will Romo sit?

Tony Romo‘s status for Sunday against the Cardinals is in doubt after suffering a back injury against Washington Monday night. From PFT:

One league source with knowledge of the situation currently believes Romo will miss time with the latest back injury.  Dubbed a contusion in a spot different from the site of his late 2013 surgery, Romo nevertheless remains in doubt as the team awaits more information from doctors regarding his condition.

As noted by Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, coach Jason Garrett has been all over the place regarding Romo, from saying he anticipates Romo will play to calling that speculation.

Romo was administered a shot and re-inserted into the game late against the Redskins. He was clearly not himself. The Cowboys are calling it a contusion and say the injury is not related to last season’s back surgery.
