For the second time in Training Camp, the Eagles have lost a player to a torn ACL.
On Monday, linebacker
The Eagles placed Phillips on Injured Reserve on Monday and signed rookie free agent linebacker Travis Long. The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Long earned an All-Pac-12 honorable mention honors last year as he registered 61 tackles, 12 for a loss and 8.5 sacks in 11 games before suffering a season-ending ACL injury. Long was named the Cougars' defensive MVP and presented the Laurie Niemi Award, which is given to the senior who best shows courage and attitude.
Originally a fifth-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2009, Phillips' rookie season was also ended in Training Camp when he suffered a left knee injury.
