The full band isn’t back together yet, but some of the members are beginning to show up at practice again and play a few notes, in this case literally. A little over four full days ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles‘ next game, one versus the Tennessee Titans in Week 13, they’ve announced that they’re activating a 21-day practice window for Jordan Davis. That’s a very positive sign.
We’ve seen exceptions to the rule, Brandon Brooks’ situation in 2021 for instance, but typically this means Philly is expectant that the player they’re opening said window for will be elevated from the injured reserve back to the 53-man roster and soon.
The 13th-overall selection of the most recent NFL Draft, Davis, could be back in the lineup soon. Allowing him to practice means that he’s being evaluated physically. If the Eagles like what they see, he can be reinserted back into the active roster at any time during the three-week span. If he doesn’t appear to be ready, he returns to the injured reserve and stays there for the remainder of the season.
He’s missed four games since having to be helped off of the field versus the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8. Don’t be shocked if he’s back in the lineup versus the Tennessee Titans.
The Eagles announce more changes to their practice squad.
Less than 24 hours after announcing the release of running back Kennedy Brooks and offensive tackle Roderick Johnson from their practice squad, the Eagles are at it again. On Wednesday, they announced the release of defensive tackle Marvin Wilson, meaning they had three open spots. Each one was filled swiftly.
They’ve now announced that they’re adding offensive lineman Tyrese Robinson and wide receivers Auden Tate and Kawaan Baker. This is Tate’s third stint with the team already this season. He was released on November 16, re-signed one day later, and released six days after that.
This is Robinson’s second stint. He was originally signed on October 3rd and released the day after Thanksgiving.
Baker is a new face. He played at Southern Alabama University during his NCAA days before being selected by the New Orleans Saints in the seventh round of 2021’s NFL Draft. He was suspended for the first six games of the 2022 regular season and waived on October 17th.
The Green Bay Packers signed him two days later and released him on November 8th. Hopefully, he makes the most of this opportunity. There are no guarantees, but this may be his final opportunity to prove he belongs in the NFL.
