The Eagles added a familiar face to the practice squad on Wednesday, signing tight end Richard Rodgers. To make room, the team released tackle Casey Tucker.

In addition, the Eagles activated the 21-day practice window for tight end Tyree Jackson and safety K'Von Wallace, who are currently on Injured Reserve. Jackson, the quarterback-to-tight end convert, suffered a back injury during Training Camp.

"If he's going to look like he did during Training Camp, like, that's going to be a player for us. But he's got to show it in games," Howie Roseman said last Friday about Jackson. "And this is an opportunity for him to come back and for us to see that. We don't think that's just a shot in the dark. We think this guy's got some traits."

Wallace, meanwhile, suffered a shoulder injury in the Week 3 game at Dallas.

The 6-foot-4, 257-pound Rodgers has been with the Eagles since the 2018 season, playing in 21 games. He was effective for the Eagles last season playing in 13 games, with four starts, and recording 25 receptions for 352 yards and two touchdowns.

Rodgers was with the Eagles in this year's Training Camp before being released during the final roster cutdown. Rodgers is the second tight end on the practice squad along with Noah Togiai.
