One of the under-the-radar players at Philadelphia Eagles camp was defensive end Joe Ostman, who caught the eye of the coaching staff and was doing everything he could to make this team and have an important role.

Unfortunately, Ostman suffered a knee injury during Philadelphia's only open practice, which led to him being carted off the field on Sunday while saluting his teammates.

That is not encouraging sign for the 24-year-old, who looked to be on his way to being a key cog on the Eagles defense, whether that be on special teams or as a pass rusher on certain downs.

Ostman latched on with the Eagles last year as an undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan. With the organization not having any hard ties to the up-and-coming grinder, they might end up cutting bait with him, especially if it's a serious knee injury.
