The Eagles waived/injured outside linebacker Phillip Hunt, which means he go on injured reserve if he clears waivers. Hunt has a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament. 

What is the Eagles’ biggest weakness?

  • 63 (1.5%)
  • 361 (8.8%)
  • 105 (2.5%)
  • 142 (3.4%)
  • 3454 (83.7%)
  • 4125

The move leaves the Eagles roster at 75 players, which it needed to be by 4 p.m. on Tuesday. They need to trim the roster to 53 on Saturday.

Eddie Whitley also will go injured reserve if no one claims him.
