Eagles activate C.J. Gardner Johnson, Robert Quinn from Injured Reserve; sign Brett Kern to the active roster

Roster Moves 2022 Season 1920

The Eagles made several roster moves ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale against the New York Giants.

• The Eagles activated safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson and defensive end Robert Quinn from Injured Reserve.

Gardner-Johnson suffered a lacerated kidney in the November 27 win over the Green Bay Packers. Despite missing five games, Gardner-Johnson is still tied for the league lead with six interceptions. The Eagles are without nickel cornerback Avonte Maddox for Sunday's game due to a toe injury.

Quinn has also missed five games after suffering a knee injury that required surgery. A midseason trade acquisition from the Chicago Bears, Quinn played 70 snaps on defense in five games for the Eagles. The Eagles are without defensive end Josh Sweat, who suffered a neck injury last Sunday against the Saints.

• The Eagles signed punter Brett Kern to the active roster from the practice squad. Kern was signed to the Eagles' practice squad on December 13 after punter Arryn Siposs suffered an ankle injury. Kern has averaged 42.6 gross yards per punt with a long of 53 yards. He also assumed the holder duties in Siposs' absence. Jake Elliott has made 4-of-5 field goals and all seven PATs with Kern as the holder.

• The Eagles waived guard Sua Opeta on Friday, so there was one open roster spot. To provide two other spots, the Eagles placed linebacker Shaun Bradley (wrist) and defensive end Janarius Robinson (ankle) on Injured Reserve.
