Lost in the question of whether the Eagles will keep receiver Riley Cooper once the season begins is whether they’ll physically replace him with a new receiver until he returns from his leave of absence.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Eagles currently plan no roster move at the receiver position.
Two days ago, the Eagles waived receiver B.J. Cunningham with an injury settlement. Also, starter Jeremy Maclin has been placed on injured reserve, shutting him down for the year.
The other receivers on the team, in alphabetical order, are Jason Avant, Dave Ball, Arrelious Benn, DeSean Jackson, DeMaris Johnson, Nick Miller, Ifeanyi Momah, Will Murphy, Greg Salas, and Russell Shepherd.
If those 10 can’t get it done, or if more injuries happen, the Eagles could look elsewhere for help. For now, they’re standing pat with the guys they have.
