The Philadelphia Eagles announced that wide receiver Steve Smith has been placed on injured reserve.
Signed to a one-year deal in August, Smith started one of the nine games he appeared for the Eagles, catching 11 passes for 124 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown reception in a 17-10 win over his former team, the New York Giants, on November 20.
Smith had missed the last two games with a knee injury.
Roster move: To replace Smith on the 53-man roster, the Eagles have promoted defensive tackle Cedric Thornton from the practice squad. Signed by the Eagles an undrafted free agent out of Southern Arkansas, the 6-foot-4, 309-pound Thornton had five tackles in four preseason games before he was released and re-signed to the practice squad at the start of the season.
