Aiken was released by the Eagles on Friday.
Analysis: Aiken saw decent action Week 1 with five receptions for 39 yards, but has only one catch in the five games since. Shelton Gibson and DeAndre Carter will serve as Philadelphia's depth wide receivers, with Jordan Matthews locked into the No. 3 role. The 29-year-old will hope to latch on elsewhere with a receiver-needy team.
Aiken made one 14-yard catch in Sunday's 26-23 loss to Tennessee.
Analysis: On the bright side, at least Aiken made it into the box score this week after being shut out in Week 3. However, with the return of Alshon Jeffery, the 29-year-old was on the field for just nine snaps and was flagged for a third-quarter holding penalty on one of them. With Jordan Matthews having vaulted up the depth chart in the short time since his signing, an injury will likely have to befall the Eagles' receiving corps before the Central Florida product sees a meaningful amount of playing time again.
Aiken played 45 offensive snaps (55 percent) in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Colts but was not targeted in the passing game.
Analysis: Seven other pass-catchers saw multiple targets on the day, leaving Aiken out entirely despite his ranking fourth among them in snaps. While it is certainly discouraging he didn't see any looks in Carson Wentz's return, the fact that the 29-year-old was on the field so much would indicate he'll probably get a few more chances with Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) and Mike Wallace (lower leg) still out.
Aiken caught five of his six targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Buccaneers.
Analysis: Aiken just re-signed with the Eagles this week with Alshon Jeffery (shoulder)set to miss another game and caught the first pass of the game from Nick Foles for a three-yard gain. The 29-year-old would see more action after Mike Wallace left the first quarter with an ankle injury. If Jeffery and Wallace are still out Week 3, the Central Florida product might be in line for more work against the Colts in Week 3.
Aiken signed a contract with the Eagles on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Aiken spent the preseason with the Eagles but was released during roster cut downs. Don't expect the veteran to see much action on offense as he will likely serve more of a depth role on the team.
Aiken (hamstring) was released by the Eagles without an injury designation Monday.
Analysis: Since Aiken is healthy, he'll be free to sign with another team at any time. His most likely destination would be a practice squad.
Aiken sustained a hamstring injury during Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots.
Analysis: Aiken was listed as questionable to return but the severity of the injury is unclear. The 29-year-old played 34 offensive snaps and did not catch a pass in the Eagles second preseason contest.
