Joseph, 6’4″, 330 pounds, has spent the previous two seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers but has yet to be on an NFL roster in 2022. The former Super Bowl champion is a beefy nose tackle who can control the line of scrimmage, something the defense hasn’t been able to do since losing standout rookie Jordan Davis.

The Eagles have allowed a combined 320 rushing yards in the last two weeks, not an encouraging stat with Jonathan Taylor, Aaron Jones, and Derrick Henry on the horizon.

Other roster moves:

  • Placed TE Dallas Goedert and DT Marlon Tuipulotu on IR
  • Activated TE Tyree Jackson from the PUP list
  • Signed S Marquise Blair to the practice squad
  • Opened the 21-day practice window for DE Janarius Robinson

Dallas Goedert was injured early in the 4th quarter when pulled to the ground by his face mask. No flag was thrown on the play. The Eagles will look to Tyree Jackson, along with Jack Stoll and Grant Calcaterra, to help fill the void.

Second-year DT Marlon Tuipulotu unknowingly suffered a knee injury during Monday’s loss to Washington. Head coach Nick Sirianni said Tuipulotu played through the injury and is unsure if it’s season-ending.

Former Seahawks and Panthers safety Marquise Blair is a versatile player who has 50 career tackles and three forced fumbles in 25 career games. Jonathan Gannon could use the backend depth, especially if CJ Gardner-Johnson gets snaps in the slot while Avonte Maddox is out.

Blair was released from Carolina’s practice squad last week.
