Ryan Kerrigan placed on Reserve/COVID-19 list

EAGLES

Veteran defensive end Ryan Kerrigan is the latest Eagle placed on the COVID-19 Reserve list.

The Eagles placed Kerrigan on the COVID list on Thursday. Left guard Landon Dickerson has been on the list since Sunday and backup offensive tackle Andre Dillard since Monday.

Kerrigan has been the Eagles’ third defensive end most of the season and has played 30 percent of the defensive snaps (280 of 926), although over the last six weeks rookie 6th-round pick Tarron Jackson has played more snaps than Kerrigan (92 to 89).

The 33-year-old Kerrigan, a four-time Pro Bowler with Washington, is officially credited with three tackles, two quarterback hits and one tackle for loss in 14 games.

Last week, Kerrigan spoke for the first time in several months about his disappointing season.

The Eagles promoted 27-year-old practice squad edge rusher Cameron Malveaux as a COVID replacement for Kerrigan.

Malveaux, who played college football at Houston, has played in 15 games with the Dolphins, Cards and Browns and has two sacks and 19 tackles. He’s also been with the 49ers and Chiefs. Malveaux has been on the practice squad since Sept. 29. 

He last played in Week 12 last year for the Browns in a win over the Jaguars. A week earlier, he played in the Browns' win over the Eagles at the Linc and forced a Miles Sanders fumble.

The Eagles have avoided any major COVID outbreak so far this year. Sua Opeta missed two games earlier in the season and Dallas Goedert missed one. Dickerson and Dillard both missed the win over Washington on Tuesday. Their status for the Eagles' game against the Giants Sunday at the Linc remains up in the air.

Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni also remains in the protocol, and his availability for the Giants game is also unknown.
