Eagles bring back DT Bruce Hector to the practice squad

It's been a crazy few days for defensive tackle Bruce Hector.

Hector was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster on Friday, ahead of the team's trip to Buffalo. On Sunday, he started for the first time in his career as the Eagles defeated the Buffalo Bills 31-13. Hector registered a quarterback hit in 30 snaps.

Hector was waived on Monday, but re-signed to the practice squad on Tuesday where he spent the first seven games of the year.

To make room for Hector, the Eagles released cornerback Ajene Harris.

The Eagles also addressed the practice squad on Monday signing tight end Scott Orndoff. The 25-year-old Orndoff originally joined the NFL as a rookie free agent signing of the Steelers in 2017 out of Pitt. He's also spent time with the Lions, Bengals, Jaguars, and Bucs, but was never on an active roster. The 6-4, 255-pound tight end had 35 catches for 579 yards and five touchdowns in his final season at Pitt. He had a career game with nine catches for 128 yards and two touchdowns in a stunning upset of the eventual National Champion Clemson Tigers.
