Report: Philadelphia Eagles release injury-plagued safety Kenny Phillips
The Philadelphia Eagles have released safety Kenny Phillips, ProFootballTalk is reporting.
The team signed the 26-year-old former Giant to a one-year deal in the offseason after Phillips played just seven games in 2012 due to knee injuries.
He also missed all but two games of the 2009 season — after being selected in the first round in 2008 — with arthritis in his knee that required microfracture surgery.
With the Eagles, he competed for a starting safety spot, but has been out of action for the past two weeks with a quad injury.
The Eagles have released S Kenny Phillips per league source.—
