Eagles sign WR Travis Fulgham, C Luke Juriga, and RB Adrian Killins from the practice squad to the active roster

The Eagles announced on Saturday that they signed wide receiver Travis Fulgham, center Luke Juriga, and running back Adrian Killins from the practice squad to the active roster.

To make room, the Eagles placed tackle Jason Peters (foot) and cornerback Trevor Williams (rib) on Injured Reserve. There was already one roster spot open after the Eagles placed wide receiver Jalen Reagor on Injured Reserve earlier this week.

Williams was already declared out for Sunday's game, as the Eagles are also without starting cornerback Avonte Maddox (ankle). Peters missed practice time this week with an illness, but the foot injury was added on Friday's injury report. With Peters out, the Eagles have several options at left tackle. Jordan Mailata could make his first career start. Lane Johnson could also move from right tackle to left tackle. Unfortunately, the Eagles will have a fourth different offensive line combination in as many games.

• Additional roster moves: Eagles elevate DB Grayland Arnold and WR Deontay Burnett from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's game.

Fulgham's promotion is not a surprise considering the fact that the Eagles will be without DeSean Jackson (hamstring), Alshon Jeffery (foot), and Jalen Reagor (thumb/IR). Rookie Quez Watkins returned to practice this week but remains on Injured Reserve with an upper-body injury from Training Camp. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (calf) traveled with the team to San Francisco, but is doubtful for the game.

The 25-year-old Fulgham brings size at 6-2, 215 pounds. He bounced back and forth between the practice squad and active roster as a rookie, eventually playing in three games for the Lions in 2019. He was a sixth-round pick out of Old Dominion.

In 39 college games, Fulgham posted 128 receptions for 2,044 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns. He had 63 grabs for 1,083 yards and nine scores as a senior.

Fulgham has a massive wingspan measuring at nearly 81 inches, ranking in the 91st percentile, and was explosive in the jumps at the NFL Combine with a vertical jump of 36.5 inches and a broad jump of 126 inches.

The 6-4, 301-pound Juriga was a team captain and a two-time, first-team All-MAC selection at Western Michigan. He started all 52 career games with time at center and right guard. Juriga provides depth for an offensive line unit that has battled through several injuries early in 2020. With Jason Peters now on Injured Reserve, the Eagles will start their fourth different offensive line combination in as many games.

Killins is an interesting addition as a running back with plenty of receiver experience.

A rookie free agent out of Central Florida, the 5-8, 177-pound Killins gained 2,459 yards on the ground, accounted for 864 receiving yards, and scored 34 total touchdowns. He earned either first- or second-team All-AAC honors in each of the past three seasons.
