In the wake of injuries, the Eagles signed veteran Orlando Scandrick to the 53-man roster Friday.

On Tuesday, the Eagles made another move that they hope will add depth to their depleted cornerback room.

The team added the recently released Ryan Lewis to their practice squad.

Lewis was released by the Indianapolis Colts on Friday.

He has spent time with the Cardinals, Patriots, Bills and Colts since going undrafted in 2017.

He has appeared in 10 NFL games. Three of those games came earlier this season with the Colts (as a special teamer) and the other seven came with Buffalo in 2018. He started three of those games and recorded 15 tackles, two forced fumbles and three defensed passes.

The Eagles may hope he pans out as Cre'Von LeBlanc did last season and have signed him to the squad with the intention of teaching him the defensive scheme before promoting him to the active roster.

Ajene Harris was released to make room on the practice squad for Lewis.

This comes just one day after the team added DJ White, who has 13 NFL games under his belt, to their open spot on the practice squad.
