Eagles Add 3 to Active Roster Before Season Finale vs. Giants
The Philadelphia Eagles announced multiple roster moves ahead of the season finale against the New York Giants on Sunday.
The team activated safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson and defensive end Robert Quinn from injured reserve. They also signed punter Brett Kern to the active roster from the practice squad.
Getting Gardner-Johnson back from his lacerated kidney, suffered in the Nov 27 game against the Green Bay Packers, is a huge boost to the Eagles defense. He still leads the NFL in interceptions, even though he has missed the past five games.
Quinn should get some reps at defensive end with Josh Sweat ruled out this week. He has missed time with a knee injury, that required surgery. He was acquired from the Bears in exchange for a fourth-round pick, but has made little to no impact since coming over on Oct 26.
Kern was out of practice squad designations had had to be signed to the active roster.
The team also ended the season of special teams ace Shaun Bradley and defensive end Janarius Robinson, both were placed on Injured Reserve.
Catch the Eagles’ season finale on Sunday against the New York Giants at 4:25 p.m. on 97.3 ESPN, South Jersey Official Eagles Station.
