Trevor Williams' stay on the active roster is going to last for a little bit longer.
A practice squad call-up prior to Week 2, the veteran cornerback was promoted to the active roster on Thursday. Williams had to play two snaps on Sunday against the Rams when cornerback Darius Slay had the wind knocked out of him chasing down a ball carrier in the second half. The Eagles had an open roster spot after placing guard Isaac Seumalo on Injured Reserve on Tuesday.
Williams was originally signed by the Eagles to a futures deal in 2020. The 5-11, 191-pound Penn State product has 40 games (27 starts) on his resume, mostly from his time with the Chargers. In 2017, Williams started 15 of the Chargers' 16 games. The Eagles now have five cornerbacks on the active roster. The Bengals' most popular offensive formations incorporate three wide receivers, so the depth at the position is important ahead of Sunday's matchup.
The Eagles also signed Marcus Green to the practice squad to replace Williams. The wide receiver spent 2019 on the practice squad and was with the team in this year's Training Camp. The team announced that first-round pick Jalen Reagor has a thumb injury that is expected to sideline him for several weeks. Green entered the league as a sixth-round pick of the Falcons out of Louisiana-Monroe last season.
