The Eagles have announced the following roster moves ahead of the team's Christmas Eve game against the Dallas Cowboys.
- Signed Christian Elliss to the active roster
- Placed Tyree Jackson on Injured Reserve
- Elevated Brett Kern from the practice squad for the game
- Upgraded Zach Pascal from questionable to no game designation; will be available for tomorrow's game
Linebacker Christian Elliss will make his fourth appearance this season. He had four special teams tackles in the wins over the Titans, Giants, and Bears. According to Football Outsiders, the Eagles rank 11th in special teams since Elliss' debut. The Eagles were 23rd in the games prior.
Punter Brett Kern, the three-time Pro Bowl selection, will appear in his second game as an Eagle since replacing Arryn Siposs due to injury.
Tight end Tyree Jackson has dealt with a lingering knee injury, and thus has been placed on Injured Reserve.
Wide receiver Zach Pascal suffered a concussion during Sunday's game against the Bears. After missing practice on Tuesday and Wednesday, he was limited on Thursday. Now, the team has upgraded his status from questionable to no game designation. That means he'll be available to play against the Cowboys.
