The Philadelphia Eagles will have some tough decisions to make as the team trims their roster down to the 53-player limit by Saturday, Sept. 5 at 4:00 PM EST. Some of those decisions involve the team cutting young players with potential. The good news for the Eagles is they will be able to keep some of those players on their 10-man practice squad starting on Sunday, Sept. 6 after 1:00 PM EST.

We'll have more information on the practice squad (we talkin' 'bout practice squad!) such as salary, rules, etc. once final cuts are over, but for now here's a quick list of which Eagles players are eligible. Via Sam Lynch (@shlynch) of Iggles Blitz:
