The Eagles announced several roster moves on Tuesday.
Opened the 21-day practice window for S Justin Evans
The Eagles have opened safety Justin Evans' 21-day practice window, designating him for a return from the Injured Reserve list.
Evans, if healthy, is eligible to return this week against the Chiefs.
The safety has spent the past month on Injured Reserve after injuring his knee in the team's Week 5 win over the Rams.
Evans also missed Week 4 with a neck injury.
In four games this season, Evans has had 14 tackles, two pass deflections, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery.
Signed OL Lecitus Smith to the practice squad
The Eagles have signed offensive lineman Lecitus Smith to the practice squad.
The Cardinals drafted Smith in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft out of Virginia Tech. During his rookie season, he played in 10 games, starting two.
After being released by the Cardinals during final roster cuts before this season, Smith briefly spent time on the Texans' practice squad.
Signed TE Noah Togiai to the practice squad
The Eagles have signed tight end Noah Togiai to the practice squad.
Togiai is headed back to Philadelphia for his third stint with the team. The tight end was signed by the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2020, but was waived during final roster cuts.
He rejoined the team in 2021, spending time on the practice squad and active roster until the end of last season. While not in Midnight Green, Togiai has spent time with the Colts, Cardinals, and Raiders.
Togiai has played in seven NFL games.
Released TE E.J. Jenkins from the practice squad
Jenkins (6-foot-6, 245 pounds) was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Jets in 2023. He had a solid preseason (3 rec., 23 yards, 1 TD), but was waived on August 29. The Eagles signed him to the practice squad on November 1.
In his final college season, Jenkins caught 17 passes for 316 yards and three touchdowns at Georgia Tech. – Written by Owen Boyle
