Eagles waive Jake Knott with injury settlement

New, comments

Disappointing.

Well, that didn't last very long. Just a few days after signing a practice squad contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, inside linebacker Jake Knott is no longer a part of the team. The Eagles released the second-year player on Friday afternoon with an injury settlement. Knott apparently hurt his knee in practice this week.

Knott was originally signed by the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2013. Knott played well enough to earn a roster spot and contributed on special teams during the season. Knott's 2014 offseason didn't get off to a great start, however, when it was announced he would be suspended four games for testing positive for PEDS. To make matters worse for Knott, he suffered a hamstring injury during training camp and was part of the Eagles' first 15 roster cuts in late August. Philadelphia signed Knott to their practice squad on Tuesday night following the end of his suspension. Now, due to injury, he's gone yet again.

One open spot remains on Philadelphia's practice squad. Perhaps the Eagles will fill that spot with linebacker Brandon Hepburn, who was released earlier this week in order to make room for Knott.

Eagles practice squad:

QB G.J. Kinne
RB Matthew Tucker
S Ed Reynolds II
WR Will Murphy
NT Wade Keliikipi
WR Quron Pratt
G/C Josh Andrews
WR Cobi Hamilton
