The Eagles got on the road to 53 players by saying goodbye to quarterback G.J. Kinne on Friday and the moves have kept on coming.
PFT has learned that the Eagles will place wide receiver Arrelious Benn on injured reserve. It’s the third straight year that Benn has wound up on that list with this year’s concussion joining 2013′s torn ACL and a variety of injuries in 2012 as the reasons why his career has been sidetracked after catching 55 passes for the Bucs in his first two NFL seasons.
Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the team has also cut running back Henry Josey, who showed well at times during the preseason. Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that wide receivers Ifeanyi Momah and Quron Pratt have also been dropped from the active roster. All three players have practice squad eligibility.
With the previously reported moves, the Eagles are down to 69 players which leaves them with plenty of work to do before they are at the 53-man limit.
