Eagles LB Emmanuel Acho left Sunday's Week 12 win over the Titans with a groin injury and did not return.

Acho appeared to pull his groin while trying to chase down Delanie Walker on a 68-yard gain. It left Casey Matthews to play all the snaps next to Mychal Kendricks at inside linebacker. The Eagles already lost starter DeMeco Ryans to to a torn Achilles' tendon in Week 9.

Eagles re-signed LB Emmanuel Acho.

CB Shaun Prater was waived in a corresponding roster move. The Eagles acquired Acho from the Browns in April, but he didn't make it past final cuts. He then signed with the Giants' practice squad. The 2012 sixth-rounder should contribute on special teams.

New Eagles LB Emmanuel Acho is 100 percent recovered from the meniscus tear that landed him on injured reserve last August.

Initially, the injury was undisclosed, but after his trade to the Eagles on Wednesday the nature of it was revealed. The 6-foot-2, 238-pound inside 'backer will compete for a job behind Mychal Kendricks and DeMeco Ryans.

Eagles acquired LB Emmanuel Acho from the Browns in exchange for RB Dion Lewis.

A sixth-round pick last season, Acho missed his entire rookie year due to a knee injury. The brother of Cardinals OLB Sam, Emmanuel will be inside 'backer depth and a special teamer in Philly's new 3-4.

Browns placed rookie LB Emmanuel Acho on injured reserve, ending his season.

Acho went down in Cleveland's second preseason game with an undisclosed injury and hadn't returned. A sixth-round pick out of Texas, he was going to be a reserve on defense and play special teams. He'll compete for a job in 2013.

Browns agreed to terms with sixth-round LB Emmanuel Acho on a four-year contract.

The brother of Cardinals LB Sam Acho, Emmanuel was a highly productive player his final two years at Texas, but has a tendency to get swallowed up by bigger linemen. Acho has practiced at middle linebacker during Browns rookie minicamp, but will likely focus on special teams if he makes Cleveland's roster.
Sat, May 12, 2012 03:22:00 PM

Browns selected Texas LB Emmanuel Acho with the No. 204 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

A different player than his brother Sam of Cardinals, Emmanuel Acho is an instinctual 4-3 linebacker that has little wasted movements when playing the run or short zones in coverage. However, too often he gets engulfed at the second level and has difficulties fighting through those blocks. Acho offers nice depth at the linebacker position and a great work ethic.
