The Eagles have waived running back William Powell after he failed his physical, the club said Friday.

Philadelphia was awarded Powell on waivers from Arizona on Wednesday.

A second-year pro from Kansas State, Powell was the Cardinals’ third-leading rusher in 2012, gaining 217 yards on 60 carries.

The Eagles also have moved rookie punter Brad Wing and rookie running back Matthew Tucker off the active / non-football injury list after they passed their physicals.

Wing will compete with veteran Donnie Jones, while Tucker will vie for one of the backup spots on the Eagles’ RB depth chart.

  1. When you’re a RB who fails a physical and gets waived after two days to free up a roster spot for a punter, you might want to think about a career change.

  2. Hate to even comment on a punter, but the Brad Wing move is a good one. If his college performance is any indication, he will be the punter this year for the Eagles.

  3. What does the punter’s physical conditioning test entail? Filling and drinking a glass of Gatorade in under 30 seconds and being able to get a uniform on with no assistance?

  4. upperdecker – That punter better be able to be 100% at punting the ball so high that there is never a chance for a return.

  5. I think Donnie Jones is probably the Eagles’ punter, but both of them can kick the hell out of the ball.

    =============================

    Actually, seeing how Wing is from Australia, they allowed him to do an alternate test. Instead of a glass of Gatorade he had to slam down a 20 ounce Fosters in 30 seconds. He had no problem with that one.

  7. So when is the NFLPA going to ask for the Eagle’s team doctor’s to resignation?
