The Eagles have signed defensive tackle Derek Landri to their 53-man roster, league sources said.

Landri will replace Antonio Dixon, who suffered a season-ending torn triceps injury on Sunday and will be placed on Injured Reserve.

The 6-foot-2, 290-pound Landri spent most of training camp and the preseason with the Eagles before he was released on final cut-down day on Sept. 3.

Landri, 28, has five seasons of NFL experience under his belt. He last played for the Carolina Panthers a season ago, starting all 16 games and recording 43 tackles and three sacks. Statistically speaking, it was his best season as a pro.
