Good to go Sunday

Covey (concussion) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Rams.

Covey left Philadelphia's Week 4 win over Washington late with a head injury, but he's since cleared concussion protocol and has no injury designation this coming Sunday. The Utah product is the Eagles' main punt returner, tallying 151 return yards on nine chances this season.

Gets questionable tag for Week 5

Covey (concussion) is listed as questionable to play against the Rams on Sunday, Tim McManus of reports.

Covey entered concussion protocol Monday after suffering a head injury late in Sunday's win over Washington. He didn't practice Wednesday but promisingly followed a limited session Thursday with a full practice Friday. That seems to give Covey a good chance of playing Sunday -- if he's able to do so, he'll likely continue to feature as the Eagles' primary punt returner.

Manages limited practice Thursday

Covey (concussion) was a limited participant at practice Thursday.

Covey missed practice entirely Wednesday, so his limited participation Thursday represents a positive development. He still probably needs to practice fully Friday to avoid an injury designation headed into the weekend, though.

Misses practice Wednesday

Covey (concussion) was a non-participant at the Eagles' practice Wednesday.

Covey's absence comes as no surprise considering he entered concussion protocols Monday. The return-specialist faces an uphill battle to be able to play Sunday against the Rams.

Enters protocols

Covey suffered a head injury late in Sunday's win over the Commanders and has entered the league's concussion protocols, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Covey will need to clear the league's five-step process to be able to suit up Week 5 against the Rams, which will likely be a tall task for the Utah product. Assuming he is unable to play, Boston Scott and Olamide Zaccheaus will be candidates to handle return duties in Week 5.

Upgraded to full Thursday

Covey (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

It's an upgrade after Covey was limited Wednesday. The Eagles' return man, Covey has six punt returns for 113 yards, including a long gain of 52 yards.

Dealing with hamstring issue

Covey was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice estimate due to a hamstring injury.

Through three games, Covey is averaging a robust 18.8 yards on his six punt returns while also recording one 30-yard kick return. Now, though, he's tending to a hamstring issue that could sap some of his explosiveness in the short term.

Joins 53-man roster

Covey signed with the team's active roster Wednesday.

Covey was elevated for each of the team's first two games of the season, and this move will make him an official member of the active roster again. The second-year pro should operate as a depth option at receiver and continue to work as a return man on special teams.

Goes back to practice squad

Covey reverted to Philadelphia's practice squad Friday.

After again playing exclusively on special teams in Week 2, Covey will head back to the practice squad. The Eagles will be able to elevate him once more this season before they'd have to sign him to the active roster to make him available.
