When the Philadelphia Eagles introduced their initial 53-man roster and they were void of both a punter and punt returner, most of us arrived at the same theory. Britain Covey and Arryn Siposs would clear waivers before being added to Philly's practice squad. From there, the Birds could use the allowable three game-day elevations for both as a three-week regular-season tryout.

We were right for the most part; however, leadership determined they didn't need to see three games. Siposs was released after the Birds added Braden Mann. Covey got some good news. He has been promoted to the 53-man roster.

Britain Covey's promotion and Avonte Maddox's addition to the injured reserve highlight several announced Eagles roster moves.

It's Bucs Week at the NovaCare Complex. The Eagles are busy preparing to fly south to tackle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football.

Coordinators met with the media on Wednesday. This came after Philly announced that they had invited William Jackson to the NovaCare Complex for a workout and decided to add cornerback Tiawan Mullen to the practice squad on Tuesday.

Wednesday also saw the Birds continue to shuffle the depth chart. Britain Covey is now on the 53-man roster as Philly's full-time punt returner. Avonte Maddox is now on the injured reserve. Running back Bryant Koback finds his way onto the practice squad.

The Eagles shared a previous post that Maddox shared via his X account. Good for them! We're all pulling for you Avonte! Oh, and how could we forget? Kyron Johnson is also back on the practice squad. This follows tight end Brady Russell being signed off of Philly's practice squad and onto the Seattle Seahawks 53-man roster.

Keep an eye on Koback. His acquisition is interesting seeing as how Trey Sermon now plays for the Indianapolis Colts. Trey was waived from Philly's injured reserve on September 15th. Fans loved him, and we wish him the best of luck.
