On Tuesday morning, the Eagles announced that running back Kevin Monangai has been re-signed to the team's practice squad.
Monangai was originally signed by the Eagles this past August. He performed well in the preseason, finishing the four-game slate as the Eagles' second leading rusher with 126 yards and a touchdown, but was released during the roster cutdown to 53 players. He was waived on September 1 and signed to the practice squad two weeks later. On September 22, he was waived again when the Eagles signed quarterback Stephen Morris and wide receiver Jonathan Krause to the practice squad.
A four-year letterman at Villanova, Kevin Monangai appeared in 45 games for the Wildcats, finishing his career with 3,167 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns on 618 carries while adding 274 receiving yards and five touchdowns on 38 career receptions.
A native of Roseland, New Jersey, he attended Seton Hall Prep in West Orange, New Jersey where he was named the county player of the year and second-team All-State after rushing for 2,266 yards and 35 touchdowns as a senior.
Monangai fills the spot vacated by Morris, who was signed to the Indianapolis Colts' active roster last week. The practice squad is now back to the 10-player maximum.
