Roster Moves: Eagles activate practice window for DE Vinny Curry and CB Craig James; sign RB Adrian Killins to the practice squad

The Eagles announced on Wednesday that they have activated the 21-day practice window for defensive end Vinny Curry and cornerback Craig James, who were placed on Injured Reserve following the season opener against Washington. Per the new league rules in 2020, teams can bring back a player from Injured Reserve after missing only three games.

There is currently one open spot on the active roster after the team waived running back Adrian Killins on Monday. Killins was brought back to the practice squad on Wednesday.

The Eagles can activate Curry and James at any point before the 21-day window expires. Wide receiver Quez Watkins is also in the 21-day practice window as well.

• Curry had two tackles and a half-sack in 22 defensive snaps against the Football Team in Week 1. Curry started that game as Derek Barnett was making his way back from injury. The Eagles' defensive line has rounded into form over the past two games, and Curry will bring another versatile piece to either rush off the edge or from the interior.

• James, a special teams captain, could potentially return at a critical time as Avonte Maddox is battling an ankle injury and Trevor Williams is on Injured Reserve with a rib injury. The Eagles moved Jalen Mills from safety to cornerback for the win over the 49ers. The Eagles are also going to be without Rudy Ford on special teams. Ford suffered a hamstring injury at San Francisco.

• Killins is 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 had two touches in eight snaps against the 49ers.
