Eagles Practice Squad Additions (UPDATED)

Teams began building their ten-man practice squads Sunday, and the Eagles began by adding some of their recent cuts.

OL Josh Andrews

Andrews was the the first man to join the squad, just after 2 PM EST, per Ravens Insider. Andrews was the low man on the offensive line totem pole, as evidenced Thursday when fellow third-stringer Kevin Graf entered the game following Matt Tobin's injury, while Andrews had to wait his turn. The Oregon State undrafted rookie is more adept to playing guard and center.

WR Quron Pratt

Zach Berman quotes a league source on Pratt's signing. Pratt was part of the final wave of cuts, a casualty of the deep receiving queue. His cause wasn't helped when he stopped his end zone route short against the Jets, leading to a Matt Barkley interception.

S Ed Reynolds

Reynolds signs, per Tim McManus. Reynolds became the first fifth-round rookie of the Eagles to be cut in preseason since CJ Gaddis in 2007. His sure-pick tipped into a Clyde Gates touchdown sealed his fate, though Reynolds had failed to impress prior to the gaffe. Reynolds, a Stanford grad, missed OTAs thanks to the school's later graduation, so maybe he just needs some catching up.

LB Emmanuel Acho

Jeff McLane has third-year Acho making the squad. Acho lost out to Casey Matthews for the fourth inside linebacker spot. Perhaps if Matthews falters, a cut leaves Acho a call-up away from rejoining the team on Sundays.

OL Kevin Graf

Most notable work was the aforementioned insertion into the final preseason game for the wounded Tobin. Tim McManus confirms the signing.

RB Matthew Tucker

Adam Caplan confirms Tucker's return. Looks unlikely that Henry Josey is coming back, but Tucker's a good back to have behind an injury-uncertain Chris Polk. Tucker's four touchdowns in August, as well as startling burst around the edges for a 227-pound back, are an asset, and it's amazing he's not on the main roster.

NT Wade Keliikipi

Further adding the accusations of Chip's Duck bias, Keliikipi worked closely at Oregon with current defensive line/assistant head coach Jerry Azzinaro. Keliikipi wasn't seen particularly much in the preseason, as he took a backseat to Beau Allen's ascent up the depth chart. With Damion Square off to the Chiefs, Keliikipi gains some extra face time in Philly.

WR Will Murphy

More Oregon! Murphy worked on the squad last season, and couldn't do enough to distinguish himself this preseason, aside from 49 receiving yards in the latter stages of games.

WR/DB Teddy Williams

Recently released by the Cardinals, Williams has one NFL catch to his credit: a 51-yarder against the Falcons last October. Williams has spent parts of an obscure career with the Cowboys and Colts as well, and was a track star coming out of Texas-San Antonio. His 4.26 40 time from the 2010 Combine has presumably caught the eye of a coach who likes a lot of speed with his conditioning.
