Eagles release WR Greg Ward from injured reserve with injury settlement – Eagles Wire

The Greg Ward era is officially over in Philadelphia, as the team released the veteran wide receiver from injured reserve with an injury settlement.
Ward will now work to get healthy and join another roster around the league after being a late roster cut due to missing the bulk of training camp with a toe injury.

A former quarterback at the University of Houston who transitioned to wide receiver in the NFL, Ward signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent before their Super Bowl season.
Ward spent most of his first 2.5 seasons on the practice squad before becoming the full-time slot receiver. He posted 53 receptions for 419 receiving yards and six receiving touchdowns in 16 games during Philadelphia’s playoff run.
In 2021, Ward’s production slipped during Nick Sirianni’s first year as head coach, as the receiver logged just seven catches for 95 yards and three touchdowns after DeVonta Smith’s arrival and Quez Watkin’s rise up the depth chart.
With A.J. Brown and Zach Pascal now on the roster, Ward became a roster longshot.
