Eagles put Joe Ostman on injured reserve, sign a defensive end

Not great news for Ostman, who was impressive so far in camp.

It wasn’t a pretty sight early on at the Eagles’ open practice on Sunday, with defensive end Joe Ostman being carted off the field, and a majority of his teammates comforting him as he made his exit.

The team has now opted to put Ostman on injured reserve with a torn ACL. His season is over. The Eagles used the open roster spot to sign defensive end Kasim Edebali.

Edebali is almost 30 years and has spent the better part of his career bouncing around the league. He played his first three seasons in New Orleans, playing in all 16 games each of those years — although only starting 3 games total —, and recorded 47 total tackles, 8 sacks, 3 passes defended and 1 forced fumble.

In 2017, he spent time with both the Broncos and Lions, and played just one game for the Bengals in 2018.

Ostman had been having a really good spring and training camp, and drawn a lot of praise from both Doug Pederson and Jim Schwartz, so this is a big blow for the potential rotation and depth they were hoping to have at the position.
