Eagles bring back Cornelius Ingram

With a practice squad spot opened up due to the release of DE Pannel Egboh, many assumed that the Eagles were making room for the recently released Joique Bell. After Bell was claimed by the injury-depleted Colts, however, the Eagles were forced to go in another direction. Enter former Eagles tight end Cornelius Ingram, who has been signed to the practice squad.

Ingram, who spent all of last year on injured reserve and failed to make the final roster this year, is a player with immense talent that has never been healthy enough to make an impact in the NFL. Given that no other team bothered to pick him between when the Eagles cut him and now, it's safe to say his knees are still a big problem.

With the Eagles already set at tight end with Brent Celek, Garrett Mills and Clay Harbor, who doesn't even suit up on Sunday's, it's highly doubtful that Ingram will make his NFL debut this year. Still, the Eagles must see there is some value in giving the kid one more chance to get healthy and put it all together.
