Ostman (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Daniel Gallen of PennLive.com reports.
Ostman had logged an impressive training camp prior to suffering a torn left ACL, an injury that was reportedly sustained during a special teams drill. The second-year pro will now turn his attention toward getting fully healthy for 2020.
Ostman went down during Sunday's practice with an apparent leg injury and needed to be carted off the field, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
Ostman reportedly suffered the injury during a special teams drill, and he wasn't able to put any weight on his leg. While the extent of the issue is not yet known, this certainly isn't a good sign for Ostman, who was putting together a solid camp so far.
Ostman has a realistic chance of making the Eagles' final 53-man roster in advance of the regular season, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. "When you look at the transition he's made with his body just in the offseason, I know a lot of the coaching staff is excited to see him in his second year," general manager Howie Roseman said of the defensive end.
Ostman (6-foot-3, 255 pounds) is a second-year edge player who went undrafted last spring and spent the entire season on Philadelphia's practice squad. He'll have to compete with the likes of Josh Sweat and Shareef Miller for a roster spot after an offseason in which the Eagles brought back Vinny Curry and Brandon Graham in free agency. Ostman's path could open up depending on the fallout of Chris Long's retirement decision.
