Punter Braden Mann has been elevated from the practice squad for the Week 4 game against the Washington Commanders

Mann was signed to the practice squad on September 18, following punter Arryn Siposs' release.

The former sixth-round pick was elevated in Week 3 when the Eagles defeated the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay. Mann punted once for 38 yards, pinning the Bucs' offense inside the 20-yard line.

Mann also held for Jake Elliott for the first time during a game. Elliott was perfect on three field goals and two extra points.

"For his first game, it was seamless in terms of the operation," said Special Teams Coordinator Michael Clay. "He had good work pregame. Hopefully, the second week in is even more seamless."

With Sydney Brown out and Justin Evans questionable for Sunday, Tristin McCollum has been elevated to provide depth at safety.

"We're confident in him if his number is called that he can come in and do an effective job," said Head Coach Nick Sirianni. 

McCollum will make his NFL debut in Week 4 after spending the first three weeks on the Eagles' practice squad.
