Considine done for season

The Philadelphia Eagles placed strong safety Sean Considine on injured reserve with a shoulder injury suffered in Sunday night’s game vs. Dallas. The third-year safety had started all eight games and ranked sixth on the team with 47 tackles, while adding one interception.

To replace Considine on the roster, the Eagles promoted safety Marcus Paschal from the practice squad. Paschal (6-0, 201) was signed as a rookie free agent from Iowa following the 2007 draft and had spent the entire season on the team’s practice squad.

In addition, the team signed strong safety Erick Harris and defensive end Xzavie Jackson to the practice squad. Defensive end Marques Murrell was signed from the Eagles practice squad by the New York Jets.

Harris (5-11, 208) was originally signed to Philadelphia’s practice squad on January 3, 2007, and was allocated to Amsterdam of NFL Europa last spring. He was released as part of the team’s final roster cutdown on September 1.

Jackson was signed as a rookie free agent by Cincinnati following the 2007 draft, but was released on September 2. The Vacaville, CA, native played collegiately at Missouri, where he notched 8 sacks, 13.5 tackles for a loss, and one interception as a senior in 2006.
