One day after acquiring tailback Kenjon Barner from Carolina, the Eagles parted ways with a running back, announcing the waiving of rookie David Fluellen on Wednesday.

An undrafted free agent from Toledo, Fluellen (5-11, 224) rushed for 25 yards on six carries and caught a 14-yard TD pass in the Eagles’ preseason opener at Chicago. However, he did not play in the club’s Friday preseason game at New England, reportedly because of an injury. However, he was back practicing on Sunday, according to the Wilmington (Del.) News Journal.

The 22-year-old Fluellen rushed for 3,336 yards and 28 touchdowns in four collegiate seasons (2010-2013).

The departure of Fluellen leaves the Eagles with six tailbacks. The Eagles carried just three running backs on the roster in Week One of the 2013 regular season.

Philadelphia has one open roster spot.

    54 years and counting… It’s the Curse of Lombardi. The Eagles were the only team to ever beat Vince Lombardi in the playoffs. The Eagles have the Lombardi hex.
