Andy Reid may have figured out what his suddenly stagnent Eagles offense may have needed.

A dose of his favorite toy, Chad Hall.

Hall was promoted from the practice squad today to the active roster, making it the second year in the row he has made the leap. To make room for Hall, the Eagles released Jarrad Page, who has seen his playing time decreased significantly since his benching earlier in the season.

"This year was a little different," said Hall. "It was a little tougher. But I've gotten better every week, helping this team anyway I can on scout team. Now I get a chance to help them on Sunday."

Here is video of Hall addressing the promotion.


With Hall back on the roster, it is a safe bet that he will be involved in the game on Sunday night in a large way. Whether it is returning punts, kickoffs, or seeing plays ran for him, Hall should see a similar role to the one he did last year.

As for Page, his tenure in Philadelphia will be remembered more for the tackles he didn't make than the ones he did. Page being gone also means that even once Nate Allen returns, Jaiquawn Jarrett will likely continue to see playing time.
