After spending the first 12 weeks of the season on the practice rosters of the St. Louis Rams and Philadelphia Eagles, former UConn Huskies linebackers Scott Lutrus and Greg Lloyd find themselves on 53-man rosters in the NFL.
Lutrus, who was undrafted, had been on the Rams practice squad all season before was signed away on Tuesday by the Indianapolis Colts. He has been among the final cuts by the Jacksonville Jaguars before the season started and joined the Rams practice squad on September 5th.
He had battled injuries through his time at UConn but it appears now he's healthy enough to play in the NFL. He'll actually get a mini-homecoming on Sunday as the Colts are in Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots.
With Moise Fokou being placed on the season-ending injured reserve, Lloyd has been signed from Eagles practice squad to their 53-man roster.
Lloyd was a seventh round pick of the Eagles in the 2011 NFL Draft and also was among the final cuts. Obviously the Eag...

Of course Indianapolis Colts fans are talking about the Curse of Dan Orlovsky. Why shouldn’t they? The only other time the 28-year-old vet has played as a pro, he helped the 2008 Lions to the first 0-16 record in NFL history. And now, according to Colts’ head coach Jim Caldwell, he’s taking over the reins of an 0-11 team with only the slightest prospects of winning. But...
DeSean Jackson flips the ball behind him in celebration as he runs into the endzone for a touchdown. Unfortunately, he flipped it a yard too soon.
Following the completion of a 50-yard pass, Jackson flips the ball to the Giants' Defensive Coordinator, then proceeds to taunt the Giants' sideline. Jackson is penalized, the 50-yard gain is nullified.
He is truly a...
Philadelphia looked bored and pathetic in a 17 point loss on the road in Seattle last night, dropping the alleged Dream Team’s record to 4-8.
This underachieving mess of a team put an explanation point on its terrible season by not only getting crushed by a bad-but-competitive Seattle team. Many of its players, particularly DeSean Jackson, embarrassed themselves by appearing to...
SEATTLE (AP) - NFL rushing leader LeSean McCoy is active for the Philadelphia Eagles despite a toe injury that slowed him in practice this week.McCoy went through pregame warmups and was deemed ready to go Thursday night against Seattle. Along with McCoy, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha also was active despite a ...
The Indianapolis Colts (0-11) will travel to Foxboro to take on their rivals, the New England Patriots (8-3), for a Week 13 match up that is not nearly as attractive now as it was when the schedule came out. Out of the ashes of their 27-19 loss, however, comes a sense of hope for the [...]
DeSean Jackson had another subpar game and he didn’t seemed to be focused on making plays. He seemed to be going through the motions. According to the reporters covering the game, he was talking the Seahawks more than he was talking to his Eagles teammates. After the game, the reporters asked him a number [...]
Michael Vick will miss his third straight game because of broken
ribs when the Eagles play at Seattle (4-7) on Thursday night.
On this short week, it’s a perfect time to throw a bunch of quick Eagles stats conclusions at you. All the data is from Pro Football Focus.

Vince Young is throwing pretty well to all parts of the field except one -- deep down the sideline.
Standard caveats apply: small sample size, DeSean-itis. Still, it’s a striking discrepancy. Maybe Marty Mornhinweg should call...
Power rankings. You hate them. They’re so arbitrary and pointless, especially when they include all 32 NFL teams. All you want to know after a good week of NFL action is who the bestest team in the NFL right now, and which one is the absolute barrel-scraping worst. The one so terrible, it couldn’t even muscle past other shoppers for the last $10 Krups coffeemaker on Black...
It would be dishonest to predict a closer margin considering how this season has played out for both teams. The Patriots have their prolific offense led by QB Tom Brady and an arsenal of pass catchers, namely WR Wes Welker and TEs Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. The Colts give up more points than any team in the NFL at 29.7 allowed per game.
