The Philadelphia Eagles have released safety Kenny Phillips, ProFootballTalk is reporting.

The team signed the 26-year-old former Giant to a one-year deal in the offseason after Phillips played just seven games in 2012 due to knee injuries.

He also missed all but two games of the 2009 season -- after being selected in the first round in 2008 -- with arthritis in his knee that required microfracture surgery.

With the Eagles, he competed for a starting safety spot, but has been out of action for the past two weeks with a quad injury.


The Eagles are left with Patrick Chung, Nate Allen, Kurt Coleman, Colt Anderson, David Sims and Earl Wolff.
