Eagles rule out Polk, promote Tucker

The Philadelphia Eagles had to shuffle their backfield today.

They downgraded running back Chris Polk to out due to a shoulder injury.

And they promoted running back Matthew Tucker to the active roster from the practice squad.

Cornerback Jordan Poyer was released from the roster to create a spot for Tucker.
