Just for kicks, Eagles add Elliott for injured Sturgis

Jake Elliott, whose booming leg led the Cincinnati Bengals to draft him in the fifth round this year, has agreed to terms with the Eagles, the team announced.

Elliott takes the place of Caleb Sturgis, who tore a hip flexor in Sunday’s season-opening victory at Washington and was placed on injured reserve. If the Eagles ultimately decide they want to bring Sturgis back this year, with one of the two IR slots they can use for returning players, he will be eligible to practice again during the team’s bye week – which follows their Nov. 5 home game against Denver – and he will be allowed to play again Nov.
