Wide receiver Britain Covey and tight end Noah Togiai have been elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's season opener against the Detroit Lions.

"You can plug me in at any position, and I'll know what to do. You'll trust me to know what to do. I'll show you my skills. But first and foremost, you know that I'm going to be on the right page," Covey said.

"I do a lot of visualization to put myself in that mindset. So I'm not going to be wide-eyed. That's never the type of person I've been, and I hope that my teammates trust me enough. That's kind of what I've been working on. But I live for that moment. I'm excited for that moment."

Here's what you should know about the rookie wide receiver:

• Covey was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Eagles in April of 2022; he was waived by Philadelphia in late August, before signing to the practice squad.

• He played college football at the University of Utah during the 2015 season before embarking on a mission trip with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for two years. He returned and played from 2018-21.

• During his tenure at Utah, he recorded 2,011 receiving yards with 11 touchdowns, 1,092 punt return yards with four touchdowns, 838 kickoff return yards with one touchdown, 300 rushing yards, and 71 passing yards with two touchdowns in 47 career games.

• His grandfather, Stephen R. Covey wrote the best-selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People, which sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie distributed it to everyone in the Eagles organization.

Covey spoke with reporters following Friday's practice. You can watch the interview below.

Togiai meanwhile has played in five career games over his first two NFL seasons with the Colts and Eagles. He suited up for the regular-season finale and played 40 total snaps between special teams and offense, chipping in with two special teams tackles.
