EAGLES ADD LB NICHOLAS MORROW TO ACTIVE ROSTER, DEAN TO IR

By Max Harper

The Eagles signed LB Nicholas Morrow to the active roster and placed LB Nakobe Dean on injured reserve.

Morrow spent training camp and preseason with the Eagles after signing with the team as a free agent in the offseason.

Morrow is coming off a career year in Chicago in which he registered 116 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, and an interception while playing over 1,000 snaps on defense.

“We are really confident in him. That’s why he’s on our 69-man roster,” coach Nick Sirianni said.

“We believe in him. We believe in the things that he can do. We believe in his style of play, his physicality, being able to line up the defense. A lot of confidence in Nick, and if he has to go, in that role, I’m excited to watch him roll for his opportunity.”

Dean will miss at least four games due to a foot injury incurred in the win over New England.

Sirianni said on Monday that Dean would be sidelined for a couple of weeks, but the team is “thankful that it’s not a season-ending injury.”
