Eagles bring back a familiar face to replace Jeff Owens

To replace rookie Jeff Owens, who ruptured his patellar tendon in his first action of the season and was placed on injured reserve, the Eagles have signed a familiar face: DT Jeremy Clark. Clark, who spent one year on the Eagles practice squad back in 2007 after being signed as a rookie free agent, has been a journeyman in his short NFL career, spending time with the Giants, Falcons, Cardinals, Cowboys and Redskins. He has played a total of 6 games and could see some action on Sunday when the Eagles play a meaningless game against the Cowboys.

Owens is the 10th Eagle to be placed on Injured Reserve this season. You have to feel for the kid, who spent the entire season on the practice squad before finally seeing some action in Week 16 only to subsequently have a major injury. Depending on how he recovers from his injury, Owens should have a future with the Birds.
