WVU Players in the NFL

Wendell Smallwood waived by Philadelphia

Written by Caleb Wygal

Wendell Smallwood is a casualty on cutdown day around the NFL.

The Eagles have a crowded backfield and Wendell Smallwood is the odd man out per Ian Rapoport.

The former Mountaineer RB spent three seasons with Philadelphia and was a member of their Super Bowl-winning team. He was one of four players contending for the final spot at running back.

He started the final preseason game for Philly, but fumbled once and gained 23 yards on 7 carries.
