Some of this looks familiar. COVID-19 reminded us all that, despite the fact that we love this game so much and can’t get enough of it, there are more important things in life than Philadelphia Eagles football. It’s hard to deny that even though the results we enjoyed during the 2020 season left much to be desired, having 16 games to watch did help get our minds off of things though.

Once we entered the current campaign, things felt a bit closer to normal. A vaccine was introduced. We were going to games again. Somewhere along the line, despite a rough start, we realized that the possibility of the Eagles making the postseason was realistic.

The recent news of variants and league-wide COVID-19 outbreaks has us all bummed. The Eagles’ have added names to their Reserve/COVID-19 list, including one belonging to their head coach, Nick Sirianni, but that isn’t all.

We’ve learned that one of Philadelphia’s high-profile offseason signings will join him.

The Eagles announce the addition of Ryan Kerrigan to the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

According to an official team report by Chris McPherson, the Philadelphia Eagles, less than three days from their Week 16 game versus the New York Giants are placing defensive end, Ryan Kerrigan, on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

As mentioned, he joins Coach Sirianni there. Offensive tackle Le’Raven Clark saw his name added to the list on Wednesday. Landon Dickerson and Andre Dillard have been there since December 19th and December 20th respectively.

In subsequent moves that followed the Kerrigan announcement, the Eagles added Cameron Malveaux to the active roster from the practice squad as a COVID-19 replacement. If you’ll remember, Inside the Iggles published a story stating that it could behoove the Birds to give him some snaps, but we’ll have to wait and see if the coaches agree.

Philly also bought a familiar face, tackle Casey Tucker. This is his fourth stint with the team after the Denver Broncos announced that they were releasing him on December 21st.
