The Eagles have elevated punter Braden Mann and cornerback Bradley Roby from the practice squad for Sunday's Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

This is Mann's third time being elevated this season. He will need to be signed to the active roster following the game or placed on waivers.

There is an open spot on the active roster after the Eagles placed Cam Jurgens on Injured Reserve on Saturday. Jurgens suffered a foot injury last Sunday against the Commanders. Sua Opeta will start at right guard against the Rams in Jurgens' place.

Mann has punted four times for an average of 41.8 yards per punt. Mann has two punts inside the opponent's 20-yard line. His longest punt of the season was a 48-yarder against Washington in Week 4.

Mann will also be the holder for the reigning NFC Special Teams Player of the Week, Jake Elliott.

Roby will make his Eagles debut this weekend.

The veteran cornerback has spent nine years in the league, playing with Denver, Houston, and New Orleans.

Roby spent last season with the Saints, where he played in 13 games (10 starts, including the win over the Eagles) and totaled 36 tackles and five passes defensed in 600 defensive snaps.

In 126 career games (60 starts), Roby has accumulated 11 interceptions (3 returned for touchdowns), 85 pass deflections, eight forced fumbles, seven fumble recoveries, and five sacks.

Roby could provide much-needed depth at the slot cornerback position.

"I was waiting for the right situation," Roby said. "I really want to win a championship. I have one in my career, and I am thirsty to get back."

The Eagles also announced that wide receiver/punt returner Britain Covey has been removed from the injury report after clearing concussion protocol. Meanwhile, running back Rashaad Penny has been added to injury report with an illness. Penny is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Rams. – Written by Owen Boyle
