Injury-depleted Eagles add a receiver and running back
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles have signed wide receiver Shelton Gibson and running back Elijah Holyfield.
The NFC East champions placed three-time Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks and defensive end Daeshon Hall on injured reserve. The Eagles also signed offensive tackle Dieugot Joseph to the practice squad and released linebacker Deshaun Davis from the practice squad.
The Eagles (9-7) host Seattle (11-5) on Sunday. They were missing seven starters on offense in Week 17.
Gibson was a fifth-round pick by the Eagles in 2017. He has three career receptions and was released in training camp.
Holyfield spent the season on Carolina’s practice squad. He ran for 1,018 yards and seven touchdowns with a 6.4-yard average his junior season at Georgia in 2018.
