The Eagles made a gameday roster move bringing in defensive tackle Landon Cohen
. To make room for him on the 75-man roster, linebacker Monte Simmons was released.
Cohen will wear No. 77 and is expected to play against the Jets on Thursday night. The Eagles are resting Cullen Jenkins
, Derek Landri
and Fletcher Cox
so Cohen will be utilized to eat up snaps. Cohen was with the Cardinals in Training Camp and released when Arizona got to the 75-man limit.
A seventh-round pick of the Detroit Lions in 2008, Cohen has played for the Jaguars and Patriots in addition to the Lions. In four seasons, the 6-3, 300-pound Cohen has played in 25 games.Make sure to follow us on Twitter @EaglesInsider
