Philadelphia Eagles Place Rookie DE Ricky Sapp On IR

The Eagles announced today that they’ve placed rookie DE Ricky Sapp on injured reserve. Sapp will undergo knee surgery and miss the entire season.

In all likelihood, the injury probably saved Sapp a spot on the team for next year. He’s failed to impress this summer and looked like a longshot to make the roster.

In his place, the Eagles signed free agent DE Pannel Egboh. The 6-8, 227 pound DE was an undrafted free agent in 2009 and has bounced around in the 49ers and Texans practice squads. The Eagles released this info about Ebgoh.

A four-year letterman at Stanford University, Egboh appeared in 40 career games (36 starts), tallying 98 tackles, 15.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. He was selected to play in Texas vs. The Nation All-Star Game and the East-West Shrine All-Star following his senior season in 2008.
