The Eagles trimmed down to 75 players by releasing kicker Richmond McGee and placing rookie cornerback Jack Ikegwuonu on the reserve/non-football injury list.
Ikegwuonu, a fourth-rounder out of Wisconsin who is recovering from a knee injury suffered during a workout before the NFL combine, is eligible to return to practice with the team any time between Weeks 6 and 9.
All NFL teams are required to cut down their rosters to 53 players by 4 p.m. on Saturday.
The Eagles had been expected to cut defensive tackle Montae Reagor, whose locker has been cleaned out and who has returned to Texas following Aug. 18 surgery on his left knee. Reagor and the team are likely working on some sort of injury settlement, which might explain why he remains on the roster.
