Eagles cut Leonard Weaver, 4 others

Cuts have begun around the league and the Eagles have announced that the following five players have been cut: DL Jeremy Clark, DB Gerard Lawson, DT Jeff Owens, FB Leonard Weaver, WR Jeremy Williams.

Obviously, the biggest name on the list is Leonard Weaver, who was released because he failed his physical. Weaver suffered a nasty injury in Week 1 last season and has been working hard to rehab the injury but clearly isn't healthy enough to play this season. In fact, he may work his tail off in rehab but I doubt Weaver ever plays again. Owen Schmitt will likely retain the starting fullback spot for another season.

As for the other 4 players cut, both Williams and Owens also failed their physicals.
