Eagles activate P Arryn Siposs, elevate pair while Chiefs elevate Austin Reiter, Marcus Kemp for SB LVII

The Philadelphia Eagles activated punter Arryn Siposs from injured reserve and elevated two players from the practice squad, while the Chiefs elevated a pair of players to the active roster for Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Siposs has missed the past six games with an ankle injury. He returned to practice last week.

Brett Kern has averaged 42.2 yards per kick in place of Siposs, who last played in Week 14. However, Kern remains on the active roster since the Eagles had a roster spot open due to Josh Sills being placed on the Commissioner Exempt List.

Siposs averaged 45.6 yards per punt in 13 games this season prior to the injury.

The Eagles elevated wide receiver Greg Ward Jr. and safety Anthony Harris from the practice squad. Ward is insurance in the event punt returner Britain Covey is unable to play. Covey (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable to play against Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl LVII.

Ward has yet to appear in a game for the Eagles this season after playing in 33 games (10 starts) the past two seasons.

Harris has not appeared in a game since rejoining the Eagles in mid-December.

The Kansas City Chiefs elevated wide receiver Marcus Kemp and center Austin Reiter to the active roster for Super Bowl LVII.

Kemp appeared in three regular-season games exclusively on special teams. He did log one key catch for 13 yards in the AFC Championship Game against Cincinnati. He played 22 snaps in offense in that game while also playing on special teams.

The Chiefs will carry six wideouts in the Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Reiter has yet to appear in any game for the Chiefs this season. However, he was the team’s starting center in both Super Bowl LIV and Super Bowl LV.
