  • Eagles' Britain Covey: Stuck in special-teams role

    Covey played all three of his snaps on special teams in Sunday's 42-19 loss to the 49ers.

    Covey's standing as the team's top punt returner rather than his contributions as a receiver have enabled him to be active for all 12 of the Eagles' games this season. The Utah product has yet to draw a target over 39 career snaps on offense through 29 games over his first two seasons in the league.

  • Eagles' Britain Covey: 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.

  • Eagles' Britain Covey: 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.

  • Eagles' Britain Covey: 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.

  • Eagles' Britain Covey: 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.

  • Eagles' Britain Covey: 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 on the road against the Rams on Sunday.

  • Eagles' Britain Covey: 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.

  • Eagles' Britain Covey: 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. The 26-year-old is now tending to a hamstring issue that could sap some of his explosiveness in the short term, though his ability to open the week as a limited participant at least bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Commanders.

  • Eagles' Britain Covey: Joins 53-man roster

    The Eagles signed Covey off their practice squad Wednesday.

    Covey was elevated from the practice squad for both of the team's first two games of the season, but he'll now get a more permanent spot on the 53-man roster. The second-year player out of Utah should operate as a depth option at receiver and continue to work as the Eagles' top punt returner.

  • Britain Covey: Goes back to practice squad

    Covey reverted to Philadelphia's practice squad Friday.

    After 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.

  • Eagles' Britain Covey: Gets elevation to 53-man roster

    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 very likely he will see many offensive snaps unless Philadelphia jumps out to an insurmountable lead early.
