Tampa Bay also elevated both tight end Codey McElroy and running back Kenjon Barner from the practice squad.

#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.

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.
