Tyree Jackson will make his Eagles debut on Sunday.
Jackson, who turns 24 today, is officially active as the Eagles host the Chargers at 4:05 p.m. at the Linc.
The former college quarterback-turned-tight end has been on Injured Reserve for the first eight weeks of the season with a back fracture suffered in training camp. He was officially activated off IR on Saturday.
With Jackson active, he’ll be one of three tight ends up for the Eagles today along with Dallas Goedert and rookie Jack Stoll.
Here’s a look at Eagles inactives for Sunday:
- WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (ankle)
- C/G Jack Anderson
- QB Reid Sinnett
- CB Mac McCain
- CB Kary Vincent Jr.
- CB Tay Gowan
- CB Josiah Scott
Safety Anthony Harris (hands, groin), who has missed the last couple games, will return on Sunday. Harris practiced this week with casts on both of his thumbs. In his absence, Marcus Epps had been starting.
RB Jordan Howard and WR John Hightower are both active for this game after being elevated on Saturday. Howard was also elevated last week, when he rushed for 57 yards and two touchdowns. Howard, Boston Scott and Kenny Gainwell are the Eagles’ three running backs with Miles Sanders on IR with an ankle injury.
This will be Hightower’s season debut. The 2020 fifth-round pick has spent all season on the Eagles’ practice squad but is up because of the injury to JJAW. Hightower last season as a rookie caught 10 passes for 167 yards.
Vincent Jr., whom the Eagles acquired at the trade deadline, is inactive today just a few days after arriving earlier this week.
