Prior to Monday night's game against the Buccaneers, the Eagles elevated two players from the practice squad:
WR Devon Allen
Allen spent all last season and the first two weeks of this season on the practice squad.
The two-time U.S. Olympian dazzled with a 73-yard kickoff return to open the team's final preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts.
He will dress for his first regular-season game tonight.
P Braden Mann
Mann was signed to the practice squad on September 18, following punter Arryn Siposs' release, who was elevated from the practice squad for the first two games.
The former sixth-round pick spent Training Camp and preseason with the Pittsburgh Steelers after playing his first three seasons with the New York Jets.
Mann averaged 45.4 yards per punt (39.4 net) over his first three seasons. Mann's best season came in 2022. The 25-year-old registered career highs in total punt yardage (3,889), yards per punt (46.9), punt net yards (3,386), punts inside the opponent's 20-yard line (27), and the longest punt of his career (72 yards).
Along with punting, Mann will be the holder for kicker Jake Elliott. Mann and Elliott worked out together during the summer on numerous occasions. This has made the transition smoother, per the pair.
"He has done it in this league for a few years," said Special Teams Coordinator Michael Clay. "I am very excited to get to work with him both as a punter and a holder." – Written by Owen Boyle
