Eagles do some roster shuffling

The Eagles had to make a few roster moves this week as they lost Nate Allen for the season with a busted patellar tendon. He was moved to IR, which is no surprise.

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.

Safety Wall was drafted and a late cut by the Cowboys if anyone is interested..
He’s a little smallish (like Coleman) and an overall good athlete
DT J Owens was one of my original sleepers to make the 53 Man Roster out of camp,which didn’t materialize, he’s been on Eagles Practice squad and is familiar with the system,the routine and the team in general. He may surprise some folks with his quickness and now with fresh legs, may be a good players to put in to get some penetrations, look for him to get some 8-10-12 snaps this week against a pretty poor Vikings O/Line
I would expect DT M Patterson to definitely miss this week’s game and probably the final one too vs the Cowboys to get fully healthy for the playoffs
Only going with 3 TE;s the rest of the way is a minor risk, Eagles never have more than 2 Tet’s activated for a game so if some inmjury does occur, they can call back G Mills and bring him back

Todd Hermanns can pick up the #3 TE if they need him!

Agree on J Owens – will be interesting to see some J Owens and Dixon take reps together at DT – bigger bodies.

P man – hope you and the family have a good holiday – Navy vs San Deigo State ( a home game for SDSU) but the weather is ‘uncalifornia’ like with 50 degrees and pouring rain probably through Xmas..

See Micah, this is where I have problems with you…at least give us some history of the players if your going to post an article…I really didnt want to read Paulman’s post to find out the additional information….Step your game up!

Hey NavyDave,
Best wishes to you and your Family for a great Christmas Holiday…
West Coast is getting pounded by rains with floods and mudslides up in the hills.
They are calling for Snow down here in the NC Mountains for Christmas Eve/Day which would be nice to have.
I have liked that Jeff Owens from his college Days in Georgia thru Summer Camp and think he has real potential down the road as he gains experience and gets a little stronger

Any McNabb stories Micah….

I just finished re-watching the game.

Reid called tight formations through the entire game until the 7:30 minute mark. Until that time, Vick was generally under center (ironically, except when we ran the ball)

After that time, Vick was exclusively in the shotgun with 4 and 5 receiver sets.

Not that it matters much (because of the deficit) but Reid passed 74% in this game.

What was most curious, however, was that we ran the ball from shotgun formation and passed the ball when Vick was under center.

It went that way until there was only 7:30 to play. Then, we went exclusively from the shotgun with all passes and 2 QB keepers.

What a crazy game! I think Reid learned a lesson from this one. I don’t think we’ll see that style of offensive ever again, at least not for an entire game.
