In the wake of yet another wave of seemingly unending injuries, the Eagles had to make some moves.

With captain Craig James and key veteran Vinny Curry suffereing "significant" injuries, it would have been no surprise to see them both wind up in IR.

The 2020 rules allow unlimited returns from IR after just three missed weeks, so even less significant injuries might see the placement.

On Tuesday, the Eagles made those moves officially by placing the pair on injured reserve.

The Eagles announced their initial 53-man roster Saturday and it was an unbalanced collection of players (by position) to say the least.

There was certainly a thought process among some that this was temporary and that some further moves would be made to get some of those guys back.

The Eagles carried some injured players on the 53-man roster and with the rule being IR need only last for three weeks in 2020 with unlimited returns, players like Will Parks and Genard Avery, who figure to miss 2-3 games already may well find themselves placed there shortly, opening up roster spots.

On Sunday, it became clear they would not be bringing back at least three of their cut players, however.

The drama heading into practice on Sunday was already high in the wake of Andre Dillard's season-ending injury.

That was overshadowed shortly after practice began as NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Wentz was not practicing due to a soft tissue injury.

The good news is that it is considered minor and the team has been extra cautious with key players this preseason, so this should not affect him long-term.
