Eagles Elevate WR, DB from Practice Squad for Week 3
The Eagles are filling their roster out after losing rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor this week with a thumb injury and special teams ace Rudy Ford to injury.
Philadelphia promoted cornerback Grayland Arnold and wide receiver Deontay Burnett from the practice squad on Saturday.
Adding Burnett was expected after the team lost Reagor this week and Alshon Jeffery was ruled out for the game. Arnold should help out on special teams, replacing Rudy Ford.
Burnett had a good camp, and had some buzz to make the Eagles’ initial 53-man roster out of training camp but was moved to the practice squad. The 22-year-old was undrafted out of USC, and was Sam Darnold's favorite target while with the Trojans. He was initially signed by the Titans and could get some snaps at the Eagles X receiver with J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and John Hightower.
