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

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-15

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.

Gets elevation to 53-man roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-14

Philadelphia elevated Covey from its practice squad to the 53-man roster ahead of its game versus Minnesota on Thursday.

After suiting up and playing exclusively on special teams in Week 1, Covey will once again be available for the Eagles in Week 2. He is a good candidate to return punts, but it's not terribly likely he will see many offensive snaps unless Philadelphia jumps out to an insurmountable lead early.

Back to practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Covey reverted to the Eagles' practice squad Monday.

Covey logged five snaps on special teams including two punt returns for a combined 30 yards in the team's 25-20 win over the Patriots in Week 1. The wide receiver will now wait for his next chance to be elevated to the active roster.

Added to active roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-09

Covey was elevated to the Eagles' active roster Saturday.

The 26-year-old was waived by Philadelphia on Aug. 29 before agreeing to join their practice squad one day later. Covey will add depth to the Eagles' special teams unit, as he was primarily used returning punts and kicks last year. The Utah product appeared in 16 games for the Eagles during his rookie campaign, racking up 514 total return yards.

Back with Philadelphia

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-30

Covey is signing with the Eagles' practice squad Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Covey was waived by the Eagles on Tuesday but will rejoin the organization a day later. He appeared in 17 games with Philadelphia last year and could join the 53-man roster at some point if the team's receivers deal with injuries.

Gets cut loose

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-29

Covey was waived by the Eagles on Tuesday, John Clark reports.

Covey's exit comes as a bit of a surprise after appearing in 17 games with the team last season. He was in the mix for a depth receiver role as well as earning the team return duties. The Utah product should be considered a likely candidate for the practice squad and possibly still someone who could find his way to the 53-man roster.

Returns to practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-27

Covey (hamstring) is practicing Sunday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Covey's hamstring issue has held him back for a couple of weeks now. His return comes at a good time with final cuts due Tuesday as teams set their 53-man rosters. The Utah product operated as the team's return man last season, and he'll continue to work to earn that role again in 2023.

Unavailable Saturday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-12

Covey was out with a hamstring injury during Saturday's 20-19 loss to the Ravens, Tim McManus of reports.

Covey was on the sidelines Saturday and after the game head coach Nick Sirianni explained that it was due to a hamstring issue. More information on his status will likely be provided later this week. Once healthy, the wide receiver is expected to be a top option to return kickoffs and punts this season.
