Harris Placed On IR; Safeties Worked Out

Head coach Andy Reid said on Sunday that safety Antoine Harris was placed on the Injured Reserve list after suffering a Lis franc sprain in Friday night's preseason win over the Jaguars. With Harris out and Quintin Demps sidelined for the time being due to knee/bone contusion (Reid inferred that it's not serious), the Eagles worked out Jamaal Fudge and Terrell Skinner following the morning practice.

Fudge has four years of NFL experience with the Jaguars and the Falcons. The 5-9, 190-pound Fudge played in two games for the Falcons last season, primarily on special teams, before being placed on the Injured Reserve list with a knee injury. The 27-year-old Fudge has played in 33 career games over the past four years.

Skinner was a rookie free agent signing of the Vikings this year out of Maryland. Skinner was released when injuries at the wide receiver position became an issue for the team. Ironically, Skinner began his college career at Maryland as a wide receiver before making the transition his final two years to safety. The 6-2, 214-pound Skinner had a career-high 67 tackles last year to go along with three pass breakups and an interception.
