To replace him (not really “replace”) on the 53-man roster, they added safety Jamar Wall to the active roster and signed another safety, Jamar Adams, to the practice squad. They also added defensive tackle Jeff Owens to the 53-man group, because Mike Patterson has a knee injury. We don’t know how badly he is injured at this point.
To make more roster room, the team released Garrett Mills, a backup tight end who actually saw some playing minutes early in the year. With Clay Harbor starting to pick things up, he’s no longer needed.
According to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com, Owens and Wall are the 15th and 16th rookies to see time on the active roster this season. That’s some rookie class.
