Eagles Send Brodrick Bunkley To IR, Promote Jeff Owens From Practice Squad

CSN is reporting that the Eagles will send DT Brodrick Bunkley to IR following the elbow injury he suffered Sunday night against the 49ers. Bunkley suffered ligament damage and will require surgery.

He will be replaced by DT Jeff Owens, who the Eagles will reportedly sign off their practice squad this week. Owens was the Eagles 7th round pick this past season out of Georgia. He was cut when the team trimmed their roster to 53, but signed to the practice squad a few days later.

While Owens will take Bunkley’s spot on the roster, Trevor Laws and Antonio Dixon will replace the snaps Bunkley played.
