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.
