Eagles place Brandon Hepburn on injured reserve

Two more Philadelphia Eagles players have been added to the team's season-ending injured reserve list. According to today's official list of NFL transactions (hat tip to Adam Caplan), linebacker Brandon Hepburn and undrafted rookie free agent defensive tackle B.J. McBryde passed through waivers unclaimed after being waived/injured late last week.

What this means is that both players will be under team control until further notice. They won't be allowed to play this season but they'll be able to rehab at the team's facility.

Hepburn spent time on the Eagles' practice squad last season. He mostly played inside linebacker but the Eagles had been working him in with the outside linebackers due to the season-ending injury suffered by Travis Long. Hepburn suffered an abdominal injury last week.

Connecticut alumnus McBryde signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent following the 2015 NFL Draft. The 23-year-old defensive end suffered a foot injury.

The Eagles can always choose to waive these players off the injured reserve list with an injury settlement in the future, but for now they will be sticking around.
