Eagles Activate TE Richard Rodgers From IR, Place TE Joshua Perkins On IR


The Philadelphia Eagles announced Friday that they’ve activated TE Richard Rodgers from injured reserve and placed TE Josh Perkins on injured reserve.

The Eagles designated Rodgers to return on Tuesday and indications were that they were going to add him to their active roster before Week 11’s game, so this doesn’t come as a big surprise.

Rodgers, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Packers back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,761,016 contract with the Packers before agreeing to a one-year contract with the Eagles this past April.

Philadelphia placed Rodgers on injured reserve at the start of the regular season.

In 2017, Rodgers appeared in 15 games for the Eagles and caught 12 passes for 160 yards receiving and one touchdown. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 41 tight end out of 71 qualifying players.
