Eagles re-sign CB Ajene Harris to practice squad

The Eagles re-signed cornerback Ajene Harris to the practice squad on Tuesday after the Falcons signed D.J. White off the Eagles' practice squad to their active roster.

The Falcons made the move after they placed safety and former Eagle Johnathan Cyprien on Injured Reserve with an undisclosed injury. The Eagles sent Cyprien and a 2020 seventh-round draft pick to the Falcons for linebacker Duke Riley and a 2020 sixth-round pick on September 30. Riley played 22 snaps on special teams in his Eagles debut against the Jets on Sunday.

Harris originally participated in the Eagles' Rookie Camp on a tryout basis. Harris was a quarterback in high school, but started at USC as a wide receiver. He transitioned to cornerback and had three interceptions as the team's nickel in 2017. Last year, Harris played both cornerback and nickel for the Trojans.

Harris was signed by the Eagles on August 6 and played throughout the preseason for the team. He was released during the final roster cutdown, then added to the practice squad on September 12. He was released to make room for White.
