Eagles agree to sign G Jack Anderson off the Bills' practice squad

The rookie guard out of Texas Tech was a seventh-round pick (No. 236 overall) of the Bills in the 2021 NFL Draft. The 22-year-old started all 38 games he played for the Red Raiders, earning first-team All-Big 12 honors in 2020. The 6-4, 314-pound Anderson was also a team captain and two-time first-team All-Big 12 Academic selection. Anderson is a native of Frisco, Texas, which happens to be the site of his game on the Eagles' roster which will be Monday night against the Cowboys.

Eagles place G Brandon Brooks and DE Brandon Graham on Injured Reserve

Head Coach Nick Sirianni indicated that these moves were coming on Monday.

Graham suffered a season-ending Achilles tendon injury in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Brooks was also injured during the second quarter on Sunday. However, unlike Graham, Sirianni said that Brooks' injury – a strained pec muscle – is not a season-ending one. He will miss at the very least three games while on Injured Reserve.

Eagles sign TE Richard Rodgers to the practice squad; release C Harry Crider from the practice squad

A familiar face, 2021 marks the fourth season in which the veteran is either on the practice squad or the active roster. Last season, Rodgers played in 13 games (four starts) and caught 24 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns, while lining up for 24 percent of the team's offensive snaps.

The 29-year-old Rodgers was with the Eagles in the preseason before being released during the final roster cutdown.

Eagles announce Week 3 practice squad protections

The Eagles protected the following practice squad players from being signed to other teams' active rosters: cornerback Craig James, guard Sua Opeta, safety Elijah Riley, and defensive tackle Marvin Wilson.
