The Eagles signed wide receiver Jamel Hamler to their practice squad.

Hamler will replace defensive tackle Cedric Thornton, who was was signed to the 53-man roster after receiver Steve Smith was placed on Injured Reserve on Monday.

Hamler, an undrafted rookie free agent out of Fresno State, was last with the Denver Broncos. He suffered a back injury late in the preseason, however, and was waived via an injury settlement before the season.
