It looks like Jerome McDougle's fairytale resurgence has ended, at least for now. McDougle was among 12 players the Eagles released today to get their roster to the 53 man limit. They also sent two player to IR.
Here are the cuts
Kyle Arrington (CB), Bam Childress (WR), Jed Collins (FB), Jason Davis(FB), Therrian Fontenot (CB), Michael Gasperson (WR), Nick Graham (CB), Jamal Jones (WR), Mike Marquardt (DT), Shaheer McBride (WR), Jerome McDougle (DE), Ryan Moats (RB), Marcus Paschal (S), Montae Reagor (DT), Montae Reagor (DT), Justin Roland (LB), Andy Studebaker (LB), Pago Togafau (LB), Kris Wilson (TE), Scott Young (G)
King Dunlap and Mike Gibson were both placed on IR, with seemingly fake/exaggerated injuries. That said, Dunlap has been carrying a high ankle sprain since Auburn's bowl game.
Surprised to see Scott Young lose his job since he did have a strong preseason. It's likely that rookie Mike McGylnn's versatiity(can play tackle, guard, and center) is what won out. It also means that Max Jean Gilles' knee injury from Thursday must be nothing.
It's a mild surprise to see Matt Schobel, Rocky Boiman, & Winston Justice make the team.
Tony Hunt is your starting fullback.
This could change even before the weekend is over... but for now here is your 2008 Philadelphia Eagles 53 man roster
