Phillip Hunt DL PHI 7 Months
Eagles OLB Phillip Hunt underwent surgery for a torn ACL on Thursday and is done for the season.
Hunt is the fourth Eagle to tear his ACL this summer. The former CFL standout has three career sacks across 16 games the past two seasons. Hunt was competing for a backup spot, and he'll revert to injured reserve shortly.

Updating a previous item, DE Phillip Hunt was not among the Eagles' final cuts this weekend.
A Saturday report claimed Hunt was waived, but he played his way onto the roster with three preseason sacks. Hunt will open the season competing for nickel rusher snaps with Juqua Parker and Darryl Tapp behind starting RE Trent Cole and LE Jason Babin. Hunt looks like the Eagles' fifth end at the moment.

Eagles waived DE Phillip Hunt and DL Daniel Te'o-Nesheim.
Te'o-Neshiem made no noise as a 2010 third-round pick after being given an opportunity to play inside on nickel downs. Hunt racked up three sacks this preseason. It's pretty surprising that the Eagles didn't believe that was enough.
