The Eagles announced on Tuesday the promotion of defensive tackle Treyvon Hester from the practice squad to the active roster. In corresponding moves, the Eagles waived defensive tackle Bruce Hector and added linebacker Kyle Wilson to the practice squad.
The Eagles signed Hester as a free agent to the practice squad on September 7. The second-year defensive lineman from Toledo played with the Oakland Raiders last season. He appeared in 14 games totaling 19 combined tackles and a forced fumble.
Wilson was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Arkansas State by the Eagles on May 24. He spent all of Training Camp with the Eagles before being released as part of the 53-man roster cutdown on September 1. He started the Eagles’ final preseason game against the New York Jets on August 30 and had five tackles in four preseason appearances.
Wilson takes Hester’s spot as the ninth member of the practice squad. With the addition of Hester, the Eagles’ active roster remains at 53 players.
