The Eagles made two roster moves ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs, activating tackle/guard Jack Driscoll and cornerback Josiah Scott from the Injured Reserve list. Both players are now on the active roster and eligible to play against the Chiefs. There were two open spots on the active roster, the Eagles did not need to make a corresponding roster move.
Driscoll, a fourth-round pick of the Eagles in 2020, played in 11 games (four starts) and lined up for over a quarter of the offensive snaps as a rookie. The Eagles will be without three starting linemen as guards Brandon Brooks and Isaac Seumalo are on Injured Reserve and left tackle Jordan Mailata is out with a knee injury.
Scott was acquired in an offseason trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars, so Sunday could potentially be his Eagles debut. Scott was also a fourth-round pick in 2020, eight slots before Driscoll, and played six games in his rookie campaign, notching 11 tackles. Scott competed as a nickel cornerback throughout Training Camp.
The Eagles will also welcome the return of safety and team captain Rodney McLeod, who will make his season debut after rehabbing from a December knee injury.
