Eagles place RB Jason Huntley, WR Quez Watkins on the Reserve/COVID-19 list

The Eagles announced on Monday afternoon that they have placed running back Jason Huntley and wide receiver Quez Watkins on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Huntley has spent the entire 2021 season on the team's practice squad.

Watkins is one of the NFC's leaders in yards per catch this season among wide receivers with 15.8, good for sixth in the conference. Watkins has 31 catches for 491 yards, starting 10 of the team's 13 games in 2021. He has three catches of 40+ yards this season, including a 91-yarder back in Week 2 against the 49ers, which marked the fifth-longest reception in franchise history.

The Eagles did not announce any corresponding roster moves to fill the spots vacated by Huntley and Watkins. The Eagles host the Washington Football Team this Sunday in an NFC East showdown at 1 PM. Meanwhile, Washington placed former first-round pick defensive lineman Jonathan Allen and several other players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.
