The Eagles have signed cornerback Roc Carmichael off the Houston Texans’ practice squad, according to a league source.
Originally a fourth-round pick by the Texans in 2011, Carmichael (5-10, 190) appeared in six games for Houston last season, recording nine tackles and one pass defensed. The 25-year-old spent his rookie season on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. He was a contributor on special teams for the Texans.
To make room on the roster, Brandon Hughes has been placed on short-term injured reserve.
