Here ya go.
#Eagles have signed RB Matthew Tucker from the practice squad and released CB Jordan Poyer. RB Chris Polk (shoulder) was ruled out Sunday

I’m sure Poyer will be added to the practice squad when he clears waivers. I suppose he could be claimed, but don’t anticipate that. Poyer hasn’t shown anything special in his limited time. He’s a young guy the Eagles hope can be a good role player in the future.
Tucker gives the Eagles depth. Going into a game with just 2 RBs is dangerous. If one gets hurt, you’re stuck with just one RB. That’s not good for a coach like Kelly who runs the ball a lot and runs an up-tempo attack.
