Eagles place CB Nickell Robey-Coleman, RB Adrian Killins on Reserve/COVID-19 lists; elevate CB Jameson Houston for Sunday Night Football

The Eagles made the following roster moves ahead of Sunday Night Football against the Washington Football Team:

• Eagles place CB Nickell Robey-Coleman on the Reserve/COVID-19 list

The primary slot corner, Robey-Coleman started in seven of 15 games, including each of the past four in his first year with the Eagles. The Eagles' starting secondary is now without Robey-Coleman (illness), cornerback Avonte Maddox (IR), safety Rodney McLeod (IR), and safety Jalen Mills (COVID-19 list).

Who is available for the Eagles in the secondary? Grayland Arnold, Blake Countess, Marcus Epps, Rudy Ford, Jameson Houston (see below), Michael Jacquet, Elijah Riley, Darius Slay, and K'Von Wallace.

• Eagles elevate CB Jameson Houston from the practice squad for Sunday night's game

Houston was signed to the practice squad on November 25 and was previously elevated for the games against the Saints and the Cardinals. Houston gives the Eagles a third true cornerback for tonight's game.

The 5-11, 200-pound Houston is a rookie free agent out of Baylor. He signed with the Cleveland Browns following the draft and was waived in August. He quickly landed with the Carolina Panthers – and his former college coach Matt Rhule – and remained there until the final roster cutdown.

An All-Big 12 honorable mention by the coaches in 2019, Houston started all 14 games at cornerback and finished the year with 44 tackles, eight pass breakups, and one interception. The Austin, Texas native was also a state champion in the 200-meter dash in high school.
