PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles made a plethora of roster moves on Tuesday, most notably placing defensive end Robert Quinn on injured reserve with a sprained knee and waiving defensive back Andre Chachere, opening two spots on the 53-man roster.
One was immediately filled by activating DE Janarius Robinson off injured reserve.
Philadelphia will also be reshuffling its practice squad this week after releasing WR Kawaan Baker, CB Javelin Guidry, and DT Anthony Rush from the 16-man unit.
Quinn, who was acquired from the Chicago Bears for a 2023 fourth-round pick ahead of the trade deadline on Oct. 26, hurt his knee practice last week, according to an NFL source, and must miss at least four games. He would be eligible to return for the Week 18 game against the New York Giants and there is optimism that this is not a season-ending injury for Quinn.
In five games with the Eagles, Quinn recorded two tackles in 70 defensive snaps with a high of 22 on Nov. 14 against Washington and a low of seven at Houston on Nov. 3.
Robinson was placed on IR on Oct. 15 with an ankle injury and the Eagles started his 21-day practice window on Nov. 16, meaning Philadelphia had to either active Robinson by Wednesday or shut him down for the best of the season.
Robinson, a rangy 24-year-old edge rusher, was originally signed off the Minnesota practice squad on Sept. 13 but has yet to make his Eagles’ in-game debut.
Philadelphia got NT Jordan Davis back from IR last week and has a number of players eligible to come off the list in the coming week starting with Avonte Maddox, who would be eligible to be activated this week and could fill the open spot on the roster if he’s ready to return from his hamstring injury.
TE Dallas Goedert (shoulder) is eligible to come off IR for the Week 15 game at Chicago and S Chauncey Gardner-Johnson (lacerated kidney) needs to sit out to at least Week 17 against New Orleans.
