The Eagles announced three roster moves on Tuesday to get to the league-mandated 85-player limit ahead of the 4 PM deadline. The team waived running back Kerryon Johnson, center Luke Juriga, and tackle Casey Tucker, all with an injury designation. If they clear waivers, they will revert to the Eagles' Injured Reserve list.

The Eagles now have 86 total players on the active roster, but have an international exemption for defensive end Matt Leo.

Johnson was claimed off waivers by the Eagles in May. The former second-round pick of the Lions in 2018 was sidelined with a knee injury.

Juriga suffered an undisclosed injury during Monday's practice. A rookie free agent in 2020, Juriga played in 13 games as a rookie.

Tucker originally joined the Eagles as a rookie free agent in 2019. He returned to the team during the 2020 season and played in six games with one start. He was out with a biceps injury.

The Eagles will have to get the roster down to 80 players by next Tuesday, August 24 then all the way down to 53 by Tuesday, August 31.
