Hall also released to make room for Owens on roster

The Eagles announced today that they signed punter Sean Landeta to the 53-man roster for the released Nick Murphy and that they moved another player to make room for Terrell Owens.

The 43-year-old Landeta hasn't played a game in the NFL since Week 10 of last season with the St. Louis Rams. He played for the Eagles during the preseason while punter Dirk Johnson recovered from surgery to correct a sports hernia.

Landeta, a veteran of 22 years and five different teams, previously played for the Eagles from 1999-2002. He career punting average is 43.3 yards per attempt.

Murphy was cut after just one game of duty. In seven punts against the Packers, he averaged 39.3 yards. He was replacing Reggie Hodges who was filling in for Johnson, who is out for the season.

Quarterback Andy Hall was also released, but will most likely to be signed back to the practice squad later this week.

Hall's departure was needed to make room for Owens, who will be added to the active roster now that his four-game suspension for "conduct detrimental to the team" is over.

The Eagles are expected to deactivate Owens for the rest of the season.

Injury update. Defensive tackle Sam Rayburn has a shoulder sprain and is day to day. ... Linebacker Dedrick Roper has an elbow sprain.
