Just over a week ago, the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football by a score of 34-26.

Now, it seems the Eagles are turning to a former Vikings RB to help fill out their backfield as they have signed Bryant Koback to their practice squad.

The news was reported by Eagles insider John McMullen, who tweeted, “All the Eagles roster moves today: CB Avonte Maddox was placed on IR and PR/WR Britain Covey was elevated from PS. TE Brady Russell signed to Seahawks 53 from Eagles PS and RB Bryant Koback and Edge Kyron Johnson signed to the Eagles PS.”

After spending the past three months or so with the Seattle Seahawks, Koback now heads to Philadelphia following a game where offseason acquisition D’Andre Swift totaled 175 rushing yards against the Vikings last Thursday.

Koback spent his collegiate years at Toledo and totaled 679 carries for 4026 yards and 45 TDs over four seasons. He then joined the Vikings prior to the 2022 season and spent training camp and preseason in Minnesota.

During three preseason games for the Vikings in 2022, Koback totaled 21 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown. Now, he heads to Philadelphia, joining an RB room that holds Swift, Kenneth Gainwell, Boston Scott, and Rashaad Penny on the 53-man roster.
