The Eagles announced a series of roster moves on Thursday afternoon:

• Eagles sign DT Hassan Ridgeway

Hassan Ridgeway was with the team in the preseason. He was released during the final roster cutdown on Tuesday.

This is Ridgeway's third season with the Eagles after being acquired in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts during the 2019 NFL Draft. Over the past two years, Ridgeway has played in 14 games (five starts) and has chipped in with 21 tackles, seven for loss, and three sacks.

Ridgeway is the fifth defensive tackle on the active roster, along with Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave, Marlon Tuipulotu, and Milton Williams.

• Eagles place T/G Jack Driscoll, TE Tyree Jackson, and CB Josiah Scott on Injured Reserve

Since Jack Driscoll, Tyree Jackson, and Josiah Scott were placed on Injured Reserve after the final roster cutdown, they are eligible to return to practice after the first three games if they are ready.

The Eagles previously said that Jackson would be out 8-10 weeks with a back injury on August 18.

• Eagles agree to terms with TE Nick Eubanks, WR KeeSean Johnson, and DT Marvin Wilson for the practice squad

Nick Eubanks is a 6-4, 256-pound tight end who was signed by the Dallas Cowboys as a rookie free agent following the 2021 NFL Draft out of Michigan. He was an Academic All-Big Ten selection in 2020 and an All-Big Ten Honorable Mention in 2019. He caught 10 passes for 117 yards in the shortened 2020 season.

KeeSean Johnson was a sixth-round pick of the Cardinals out of Fresno State in 2019. He had 36 catches for 360 yards and a touchdown in two seasons. The Cardinals' website called Johnson's release during the final roster cutdown a "mild surprise."

"We know (Johnson) can play in this league," Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury said. "It's just tough competition in that room, there were some other guys that stepped up, and it just became a numbers game."

The 6-1, 201-pound Johnson finished his college career as Fresno State's all-time leader in both receptions (275) and receiving yards (3,463).

Marvin Wilson was a five-star recruit and the No. 1 defensive tackle prospect in the country out of Houston's Episcopal High School. He played at Florida State where he was a second-team All-ACC selection this past season after recording 17 tackles, a sack, and three blocked kicks. The 6-4, 303-pound Wilson was originally signed by the Browns as a rookie free agent following the 2021 NFL Draft.
