Eagles add eight players to practice squad

The Eagles added eight players waived on Saturday to their practice squad on Sunday.

Offensive lineman Josh Andrews, offensive lineman Kevin Graf, defensive lineman Wade Keliikipi, safety Ed Reynolds, linebacker Emmanuel Acho, wide receiver Will Murphy, wide receiver Quron Pratt, and running back Matthew Tucker all joined the practice squad, which was expended to 10 players. The Eagles still have two spots remaining.

Acho, 23, shuffled between the practice squad and the active roster last season.

Andrews, 23, can play guard and center. He was the third-team center after Julian Vandervelde had back surgery.

Graf, 23, was a three-year starter at USC who can play guard and tackle.

Keliikipi is a nose tackle who played for Jerry Azzinaro and Chip Kelly at Oregon.

Murphy also played for Kelly at Oregon, and spent last season the practice squad.

Pratt, 23, impressed the Eagles on special teams this summer. The Palmyra native finished with seven catches for 96 yards during the preseason

Reynolds is a fifth-round pick who was caught in a numbers game. He was the first fifth-round rookie the Eagles cut since 2007, although he now remains in Philadelphia. 

Tucker spent time with the Eagles last season and scored four touchdowns this preseason.

**Wide receiver Damaris Johnson was claimed off waivers by the Houston Texans and defensive lineman Damion Square was claimed by the Kansas City Chiefs. Both players were waived by the Eagles on Saturday.
