Eagles clear COVID-list

The Eagles cleared their Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday as they get ready to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the wild card round on this upcoming weekend.

All 11 players who remained on the COVID list through Week 18 are now ready to return practice this week.

The Eagles activated the following players Monday: Fletcher Cox, Dallas Goedert, Rodney McLeod, Avonte Maddox, Alex Singleton, Nate Herbig, Boston Scott, Genard Avery, Jordan Howard, Marcus Epps, Jack Stoll.

Those 11 players and Jason Kelce were added to the Eagles’ COVID list on January 3, the day after the Eagles found out they clinched a spot in the playoffs.

Kelce was activated from the COVID list on January 7 and played one snap in Week 18 to extend his consecutive starts streak to 122 games. Those other players were not activated and the Eagles probably weren’t in a hurry to get them back for the meaningless Week 18 game against the Dallas Cowboys — they rested most of their regulars anyway.
