Eagles Poach Steelers DB, Sign RB & Cut 2 Players Ahead of Huge Matchup vs Dolphin

The Philadelphia Eagles are bolstering their secondary due to a growing list of injuries.  

They've signed cornerback Josiah Scott from the Pittsburgh Steelers' practice squad to their active roster. In a corresponding move, they waived cornerback Mario Goodrich. 

This signing comes after the Eagles recently added veteran wide receiver Julio Jones and running back Lew Nichols to their practice squad while releasing running back Bryant Koback.

The Eagles' secondary has been plagued by injuries, with veteran cornerback Bradley Roby, who was signed just a week ago, getting injured in Week 6 against the New York Jets, along with cornerback Eli Ricks.

Josiah Scott previously spent two seasons with the Eagles, playing in 29 games, making four starts, and accumulating 38 tackles, eight pass breakups, a sack, and two interceptions. 

His addition provides much-needed depth to the injury-stricken secondary. 

As for Lew Nichols, he was a seventh-round draft pick for the Green Bay Packers in 2023 but was released due to a shoulder injury that kept him out of the preseason.  

Nichols played college football at Central Michigan, where he showcased his ability as a rusher and receiver. 

The Eagles have been grappling with more injuries than usual, particularly in their secondary, with players like Darius Slay and Avonte Maddox dealing with various issues.  

This signing aims to address the team's pressing need for healthy players as they navigate a challenging season.
