Eagles announce 3 roster moves in advance of Monday Night Football
On Monday afternoon, the Eagles announced three roster transactions in advance of their primetime clash with the Seattle Seahawks.
The Eagles have activated defensive end Genard Avery (elbow) off Reserve/Injured and elevated tight end Caleb Wilson from the practice squad for tonight.
Additionally, defensive tackle T.Y. McGill was elevated from the practice squad as a COVID-19 replacement.
Aside from his Week 4 breakout, Avery had largely been a non-factor prior to being placed on injured reserve on Oct. 30. In six games, Avery has accumulated five tackles (one for loss), 1.5 sacks, six quarterback hits, and a pass defended on 68 defensive snaps. He'll have an opportunity to provide pressure as a changeup rusher against a vulnerable Seahawks' offensive line.
McGill rejoins the active roster and will appear in his fifth game this season. The veteran defender has registered four tackles, a half-sack, and two quarterback hits in 61 defensive snaps.
Wilson, who will assume the No. 3 tight end role behind Dallas Goedert and Richard Rodgers for the third time this season, has compiled 12 special teams snaps.
