The Eagles are in Detroit and a little under 18 hours away from kicking off the season opener on the road against the Lions.
The Birds are a slight favorite and will look to start the season on a positive note with a huge home matchup against the Vikings ahead on Monday Night Football.
Jalen Hurts will look to cement his status and a new contract this season, while Jonathan Gannon’s retooled defense could be among the best in the NFL.
With the team settled in and prepared, here’s an updated look at the 53-man roster with news and notes after the elevation of Britain Covey.
#1 QB Jalen Hurts
Hurts can use a dynamic showing on Sunday with a huge Monday night football tilt against Kirk Cousins and the Vikings set for Week 2.
#2 CB Darius Slay
Initially drafted by the Lions, Slay is returning to Detroit for the second time since being traded to the Eagles.
#3 WR Zach Pascal
Pascal will play his first game with Philadelphia, and the physical wideout should provide considerable dividends in the red zone.
#4 K Jake Elliott
#6 WR DeVonta Smith
The Slim Reaper will look to build on his impressive rookie season.
#7 LB Haason Reddick
The ‘Weapon’ will make his debut with Philadelphia, and Reddick should significantly enhance the Birds’ pass rush.
#8 P Arryn Sippos
The former Auburn punter had a solid preseason and will look to improve on his 2021 season.
#10 QB Gardner Minshew
The veteran quarterback is in the final year of his rookie deal and gives Philadelphia one of the best insurance policies in football.
#11 WR A.J. Brown
Brown will make his debut with Philadelphia amid big expectations and a huge contract.
#14 RB Kenneth Gainwell
The second-year running back is a dual-threat and impact player in the red zone.
#16 WR Quez Watkins
The third wide receiver on the depth chart, Watkins may be the teams most explosive player.
#17 LB Nakobe Dean
The former Georgia All-American linebacker will make his NFL debut in a reserve role, but his presence will be felt.
#19 QB Ian Book
Book is the third quarterback on the roster and unlikely to be active after being claimed off waivers from New Orleans at the roster deadline.
#22 S Marcus Epps
Epps will debut as a full-time starter, returning to the scene of his most impressive performance in 2021.
#23 S Chauncey Gardner-Johnson
The newest Eagle is already taking first-team reps at safety and should enhance the secondary from day one.
#24 CB James Bradberry
Bradberry will make his debut at cornerback for the Eagles against the physical DJ Chark.
#26 RB Miles Sanders
Sanders says he’s healthy entering a contract year, and he’ll look to log his first 1,000-yard rushing season.
#27 CB Zech McPhearson
#28 CB Josh Jobe
Jobe switched to jersey No. 28 and is the fifth cornerback on the roster.
#29 CB Avonte Maddox
#33 CB Josiah Scott
Scott made Philadelphia’s 53-man roster and could see time at safety and Slot cornerback.
#34 RB Trey Sermon
The hard-running Sermon could be listed as inactive after being claimed off waivers.
#35 RB Boston Scott
#42 S K'Von Wallace
Wallace is now a key contributor for the Eagles entering his third season.
#43 LB Kyzir White
The athletic linebacker offers dynamic playmaking ability for an Eagles defense lacking such a presence at the position.
#45 LS Rick Lovato
#46 S Reed Blankenship
Blankenship will make his debut and will bring an aura of physicality to the safety position.
#48 LB Patrick Johnson
#51 C Cam Jurgens
#54 LB Shaun Bradley
#55 DE Brandon Graham
Graham returns to his hometown of Detroit after missing the 2021 matchup with a torn Achilles.
#56 OL Isaac Seumalo
Seumalo will make his first start at right guard.
#57 LB T.J. Edwards
Edwards was among the best players on the defense this summer, and he’ll bring his usual physicality, along with improved athleticism.
#58 LB Kyron Johnson
#61 OL Josh Sills
#62 C Jason Kelce
Kelce will make his 123rd consecutive regular-season start at center for the Eagles.
#63 OL Jack Driscoll
#65 LT Lane Johnson
#68 LT Jordan Mailata
#69 OL Landon Dickerson
#75 DE Tarron Jackson
The second-year pass rusher is a player to watch in specific packages.
#78 OL Sua Opeta
#88 TE Dallas Goedert
Goedert enters the first year of his new deal and he’ll be the central figure at tight end with Zach Ertz in Arizona.
#89 TE Jack Stoll
#90 DT Jordan Davis
The massive Georgia defensive tackle will make his NFL debut on the road against a Lions team missing two starters on the offensive line and potentially center Frank Ragnow.
#91 DT Fletcher Cox
#93 DT Milton Williams
#94 DE Josh Sweat
Sweat tied for the team lead in sacks last season, and Haason Reddick should free him up for an uptick in production.
#95 DT Marlon Tuipuluto
#96 DE Derek Barnett
#97 DT Javon Hargrave
#18 WR Britain Covey (Elevated from practice)
Covey was elevated from the practice squad and will likely be featured in the return game.
