The Eagles now have an open roster spot.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles-OTA Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles finally placed veteran linebacker Paul Worrilow on injured reserve, according to an official announcement from the team.

Worrilow suffered a season-ending ACL injury on the first day of Eagles OTA practice back on May 22. He went down after a collision during team drills and had to be carted off the field. Very unfortunate.

The Eagles originally signed Worrilow to a one-year contract back in early April. He figured to give Philadelphia more depth at middle linebacker while also offering the versatility to play all three positions.

Putting Worrilow on injured reserve frees up a roster spot. The Eagles are now one player shy of the 90-man offseason limit.

The Eagles recently received some significant cap room after designating Mychal Kendricks as a post-June 1 cut. They currently have $5.9 million in cap space, per Over The Cap. Perhaps Howie Roseman is looking to make another signing. (Corey Graham? Cedric Thornton? Courtney Upshaw?)
