The Eagles announced five roster moves in advance of Sunday’s road postseason matchup against the defending Super Bowl champion, Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Bucs made a series of roster moves ahead of Sunday’s home game against Philadelphia in the Wild Card Round of the 2021 NFC Playoffs, including activating inside linebacker Lavonte David and running back Giovani Bernard off injured reserve while releasing wide receiver Justin Watson and cornerback Rashard Robinson to make room on the roster.
Tampa Bay also elevated both tight end Codey McElroy and running back Kenjon Barner from the practice squad.
Star running back Leonard Fournette will miss the matchup with a lingering hamstring injury.
Kayode #Awosika among 10 #Eagles elevated for Week 18 matchup vs. #Cowboys
The Eagles announced the following roster moves ahead of tonight’s game, including elevating 10 practice squad players for Saturday’s matchup against Dallas.
Jason Kelce is the only player on the reserve/COVID-19 list activated for Saturday’s game, as his consecutive start streak will remain intact.
The Eagles will play without Fletcher Cox, Dallas Goedert, Avonte Maddox, Rodney McLeod, Genardy Avery, Marcus Epps, Nate Herbig, Jordan Howard, Boston Scott, Alex Singleton, and Jack Stoll.
#Philadelphia #Eagles sign running back Kerryon Johnson C/G Luke Juriga to the practice squad in advance of matchup vs. #WashingtonFootball
With Miles Sanders out for Week 17 and Philadelphia needing to keep their running back depth flowing, the team has signed running back Kerryon Johnson to the practice squad.
Jordan Howard is dealing with a stinger and could be a game-time decision.
The Eagles made several other roster moves involving the practice squad on Tuesday:
Former Philadelphia #Eagles WR Travis #Fulgham has been released from the Miami #Dolphins practice squad and he could be an option for #FlyEaglesFly after the team placed Quez Watkins on the reserve-COVID-19 list
The Eagles are down a wide receiver after placing Quez Watkins on the reserve/COVID-19 list and a former breakout star could be on his way back.
Travis Fulgham was released from the Dolphins practice squad after Miami signed Tommylee Lewis and Dexter Williams to the practice squad in subsequent moves.
With Watkins out, Philadelphia will only have DeVonta Smith, Jalen Reagor, Greg Ward, and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside available for Sunday’s matchup against Washington and Fulgham could be a name to watch if Howie Roseman chooses to make a roster move.
The Eagles currently have Deon Cain, John Hightower, and KeeSean Johnson as wide receivers on the practice squad and could also look to elevate one of them.
Philadelphia Eagles finally sign running back Jordan Howard to the active roster
In a move that’s been expected for days, the Philadelphia Eagles have signed running back Jordan Howard to the active roster.
The move ends speculation about an opposing team signing Howard off of the Eagles practice squad after his two-week explosion in selected spurts.
In the Week 9 loss to the Chargers, Howard gained 71 yards on 17 carries and a touchdown, while in Week 8 against Detroit, the veteran had 12 carries for 57-yards and two more touchdowns.
New York Jets to sign DB Elijah Riley off of the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad
The Jets are signing safety Elijah Riley off of the Eagles’ practice squad according to Al Iannazzone of Newsday.
With Marcus Maye headed for injured reserve after suffering a season-ending torn Achilles in the Jets’ loss to the Colts last Thursday night, Riley will fill a need and has in-game experience with Philadelphia.
The 23-year-old Riley was signed by the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2020 after a standout career at Army.
Philadelphia also released cornerback Mac McCain and signed cornerback Craig James to the practice squad.
Philadelphia Eagles announce 2 roster moves as the team starts preparation for Week 10
The Eagles announced a couple of roster moves on Tuesday, waiving cornerback Mac McCain and signing cornerback Craig James to the practice squad.
An undrafted rookie free agent signing of the Broncos out of North Carolina A&T, McCain was active for Philadelphia’s game against the Cowboys.
James has been a special team’s ace for the Eagles over the past two seasons.
Philadelphia Eagles announce 2 roster moves in advance of Week 9 matchup vs. Chargers
The Eagles announced two more roster moves on Thursday morning.
Philadelphia signed Brett Toth to the practice squad after he went unclaimed on waivers Tuesday afternoon.
Toth was waived to make room for defensive back Kary Vincent Jr., who was acquired from the Broncos in a trade at the deadline.
Toth saw action in seven of the Eagles’ first eight games this season.
Toth originally joined the Eagles as a rookie free agent out of Army in 2019 after the U.S. Department of Defense granted him a waiver to pursue his NFL career.
To make room on the practice squad, the Eagles released cornerback Craig James.
Philadelphia Eagles protect 4 practice squad players in advance of Week 9 matchup vs. Chargers
The Eagles made a few roster moves on Tuesday, cutting tackle Brett Toth, and trading for cornerback Kary Vincent Jr.
Along with the trade, Philadelphia protected four practice squad players for Week 9, including running back Jordan Howard.
Howard can’t be protected again, and the Eagles will likely need to sign the running back to the active roster heading into Week 10.
The Eagles have a Jordan Howard conundrum and here are 5 NFL teams that could look to poach the running back from off of Philadelphia’s practice squad
The Eagles sat Jordan Howard for 7 weeks and after a noteworthy performance that showed he can still be an athletic and physical running back, after rushing for two touchdowns and leading Philadelphia to a dominating victory over Detroit.
Now the Eagles have a self-made issue because Howard’s now available to any team around the NFL that makes an offer and gets approval for a signing.
Miles Sanders is still out two more weeks, and Philadelphia only has 1 running back on the practice squad.
The Eagles are about to be out chances to protect Howard from week to week as well, meaning Howie Roseman must release a player and sign the veteran running back for the rest of the season.
We’ve highlighted five teams that could look to acquire Howard without giving Philadelphia compensation.
