Eagles Notes: With Herremans on IR, Eagles Sign a Pair of Free Agents
The Eagles have placed right tackle Todd Herremans on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.
The team signed guard/center Julian Vandervelde off their practice squad to the 53-man roster. Vandervelde, a fifth-round pick of the Eagles in 2011, will be depth for a decimated unit.
Earlier in the day, the Eagles re-signed rookie safety Phillip Thomas out of Syracuse to the practice squad and released defensive tackle Frank Trotter. Thomas, an undrafted free agent, spent the offseason with the team but did not make the final cut.
