Found August 31, 2013 on Eagles Addict:
By 6:00pm EST, Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles have to cut nine players to get down to the 53-man roster limit.  Yesterday they released 12 and placed one on the injured reserve list. Here are the 12 released on Friday: LB Everette Brown DT Antonio Dixon QB Dennis Dixon DE David King QB G.J. Kinne OL Matt Kopa CB Trevard Lindley WR Ifeanyi Momah WR Will Murphy OL Dallas Reynolds LB Adrian Robinson OL Matt Tennant DE Joe Kruger was the guy placed on IR.

Predicting the 53

By 6 PM Saturday, the Philadelphia Eagles will have reached their league mandated 53 man roster. This is not to say that the roster will be finalized.
