Eagles release WR Greg Ward from injured reserve with injury settlement

Philadelphia Eagles release wide receiver Greg Ward from injured reserve with an injury settlement.

The Greg Ward era is officially over in Philadelphia, as the team released the veteran wide receiver from injured reserve with an injury settlement.

Ward will now work to get healthy and join another roster around the league after being a late roster cut due to missing the bulk of training camp with a toe injury.

A former quarterback at the University of Houston who transitioned to wide receiver in the NFL, Ward signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent before their Super Bowl season.

Ward spent most of his first 2.5 seasons on the practice squad before becoming the full-time slot receiver. He posted 53 receptions for 419 receiving yards and six receiving touchdowns in 16 games during Philadelphia’s playoff run.

In 2021, Ward’s production slipped during Nick Sirianni’s first year as head coach, as the receiver logged just seven catches for 95 yards and three touchdowns after DeVonta Smith’s arrival and Quez Watkin’s rise up the depth chart.

With A.J. Brown and Zach Pascal now on the roster, Ward became a roster longshot.

Projecting the Eagles offensive depth chart for Week 1 at the Lions

Projecting the Philadelphia Eagles’ offensive depth chart for Week 1 at Ford Field against the Detroit Lions

The Philadelphia Eagles didn’t take many steps to retool the league’s top rushing offense, but they added a game changer at wide receiver.

The Birds pulled off a blockbuster draft-night deal, acquiring A.J. Brown from the Titans for draft picks.

After adding Zach Pascal and trading Jalen Reagor, Philadelphia now has one of the league’s top pass-catching units, without counting star tight end Dallas Goedert.

With training camp and the preseason in the books, we’re predicting what the Eagles starting lineup, and offensive depth chart will look like in 2022.

The Philadelphia Eagles have retooled a much maligned defensive unit, and now growing expectations surround a unit with top-5 potential.

The defensive line offers the most intrigue, with Brandon Graham likely sacrificing his role as a starter in Jonathan Gannon’s hybrid defensive scheme.

Haason Reddick will assume the role of a standup pass rusher opposite Josh Reddick.

At the same time, Jordan Davis will allow Fletcher Cox and Javon Hargrave to play their more natural positions.

With training camp and the preseason in the books, we’re predicting what the Eagles starting lineup, and defensive depth chart will look like in 2022.

Former Eagles TE Richard Rodgers signing to the Chargers practice squad

Former Philadelphia Eagles tight end Richard Rodgers signing to the Los Angeles Chargers practice squad

Richard Rodgers has always been a player the Eagles could call on in a pinch, and now the versatile tight end is taking his talents to the West Coast.

Ari Meirov of PFF reports that Rodgers is signing to the Los Angeles Chargers practice squad.

The Eagles signed Rodgers during the 2018 offseason after spending the first four years of his career with Green Bay.

He was drafted in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Last season, Rodgers recorded two receptions for 11 yards in three games, but he was released during Philadelphia’s 53-man roster cuts.

The Eagles will host the Steelers at Lincoln Financial Field in Week 8 of the 2022 season, and two former Birds could make a return.

Eagles updated 53-man roster after Jalen Reagor trade and recent moves

Philadelphia Eagles updated 53-man roster after roster claims and Jalen Reagor trade

Roster building in the NFL is always a fluid situation, and after weeks of practice and months of speculation, Philadelphia released its official 53-man roster for the 2022 NFL regular season.

Three undrafted rookies (Josh Jobe, Reed Blankenship, Josh Sills) made the team, but a few moves have been made since.

The Eagles made 29 total moves, including waiving Devon Allen and Britain Covey, although both players returned to the 16-man practice.

Then afterward, Philadelphia claimed quarterback Ian Book off waivers from the Saints, and the former Notre Dame quarterback will be the third signal-caller on the roster.

The Eagles then made a blockbuster move, trading Jalen Reagor before finishing the week out by claiming running back Trey Sermon off waivers from the 49ers.

With preparation for the Lions set to begin, here’s an updated 53-man roster.

Eagles left tackle Andre Dillard suffered a fractured forearm in practice

Philadelphia Eagles backup left tackle Andre Dillard suffered a fractured forearm in practice on Thursday

The Eagles held onto Andre Dillard this summer, choosing not to trade their backup left tackle and a former first-round pick.

Dillard is the insurance policy for star left tackle Jordan Mailata, but his availability could be questioned after he suffered a forearm fracture in Thursday’s practice.

According to OrthoInfo, the length of time Dillard will out depends on the severity of the fracture.

A stable fracture may require 3 to 4 weeks in a cast. A more severe fracture may need to be immobilized for 6 to 10 weeks.

Dillard is in the final year of his rookie deal, and his talent as a reserve plays a significant part in the Eagles having the best offensive line and the top depth in the NFL.
