The Philadelphia Eagles announced that they have promoted WR Greg Ward from their practice squad to the active roster and placed OT Jordan Mailata on injured reserve in a corresponding roster move.

Ward, 24, originally signed on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Houston, converting from quarterback to receiver. He was among Philadelphia’s final roster cuts during his rookie season and signed on with their practice squad.
Ward has bounced on and off the Eagles’ taxi squad and re-signed to a one-year, $495,000 contract last offseason, but was among their final cuts coming out of the preseason, once again, and re-signed to their practice squad.
He has yet to appear in an NFL game.
During his college career at Houston as a quarterback, Ward recorded 746 completions on 1,106 attempts (67.5 precent) for 8,704 yards, 52 touchdowns, and 26 interceptions.
