The Eagles have placed linebacker Davion Taylor on injured reserve and signed linebacker Christian Elliss to the practice squad.

Taylor injured his knee in Sunday’s win over the Saints early due to a knee injury, for which he has had surgery.

He is projected to miss three games and the bye week and could return Dec. 26.

The 6-3, 231-pound Elliss was on the Eagles’ practice squad earlier this year.

He was originally signed by the Minnesota Vikings as a rookie free agent this past spring out of Idaho.
