Eagles promote Hall, release Barnes

With Riley Cooper ruled out for Week 5 against the Niners, the Eagles needed to make a move to add another wide receiver to the roster. Enter practice squad WR Chad Hall, who has been promoted by the Eagles to their active roster and will suit up on Sunday Night as the 4th wideout. The preseason sensation could also play a role in the return game or as a running back should LeSean McCoy not be healthy enough to carry the load.

To make room for Hall, the Birds released defensive end Antwan Barnes. Barnes was acquired from the Ravens for a 7th round pick right before the season started and played in the first two games before being inactive in Weeks 3 and 4. Since they liked him enough to trade for him just a few weeks ago, don't be surprised if the Eagles try to bring him back after the game on Sunday.
