The Eagles have placed wide receiver Steve Smith (knee) on their Injured Reserve list and signed defensive tackle Cedric Thornton off the practice squad to take his place on the roster.
Smith did not dress Sunday for the first time this season because he had a bone bruise on his knee, the same one he had microfracture knee surgery on last December.
His season, and likely his tenure with the Eagles, are now over.
Aside from filling in for the benched DeSean Jackson last month against Arizona, Smith saw very little playing time with the Eagles. Signed as a free agent for around $2.3 million, Smith wasn't expected to contribute much coming off surgery. But he produced almost no game-changing moments when he did play.
