Roster Moves: Eagles activate 11 players from Reserve/COVID-19 list
In an expected move, the Eagles have activated all 11 players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list this afternoon. This move clears the way for Fletcher Cox, Dallas Goedert, and several other starters to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Nick Sirianni said that all 11 were good to go last week before the team decided to bench their starters. All 11 tested positive alongside Jason Kelce last Monday, after their victory over the Washington Football Team. Kelce was activated ahead of their game against Dallas to keep his Iron Man streak of consecutive games played.
Injured Reserve news
Wideout J.J. Arcega-Whiteside was placed on the injured reserve following their loss to the Cowboys on Saturday and is done for the season. Also headed to the IR are Tyree Jackson and Brett Toth. Jackson tore his ACL, and Toth left early with an undisclosed reason.
After a standout performance, running back Jason Huntley was activated from the practice squad to the active roster. Huntley rushed for 51 yards on 13 attempts this past weekend and looked impressive as the Eagles’ kick returner.
Johnson’s return to Philadelphia was short-lived, having been released from the practice squad today. The running back was signed to the practice squad a few weeks ago but didn’t see the field during his time here. The emergence of Huntley also showed there was no need for Johnson on the team’s practice squad.
