Eagles Release Tony Hunt

And the great Tony Hunt fullback experiment ends not in a bang, but a whimper.  The Eagles have released Tony Hunt and signed journeyman linebacker/special teams player Tracy White (who?), reflecting continuing concerns about their special-teams play.

Hunt had four carries for nine yards this season so it isn’t that surprising however I am very shocked at this considering Andy Reid has a history of not going back on his draft picks.  Especially with the increase in time on the field Hunt has seen of late in the blocking game.

Could this be a little bit of foreshadowing down the road?

Is Andy Reid’s tenure as Head Coach in jeopardy?

McNabb and Westbrook Expect to Play Sunday

Big Red said this morning that quarterback Donovan McNabb (chest contusion), running back Brian Westbrook (ankle), tight end L.J. Smith (back), fullback Tony Hunt (concussion) and guard Shawn Andrews (back) would all miss practice this afternoon.

McNabb said was still sore but expected to play Sunday against the Chicago Bears. B West is also holding out hope that he’ll be recovered enough from the injury to his right ankle to play.

I’m optimistic about getting out there and being able to play.  I’ve been rehabbing pretty agressively, doing everything I can to be out there on the field Sunday night.
