In addition to utilizing that vacancy, the Birds can temporarily elevate two practice squad players if they wish. Britain Covey and Davion Taylor might be the top candidates to get bumped up. Covey is probably the Eagles’ best punt returner option and Taylor can play special teams while providing a fifth body at linebacker. The Eagles have until 4:00 PM Eastern on Saturday to conduct any roster moves.
