The Philadelphia Eagles released their final 53-man roster
for the 2022–23 NFL season. Despite making some noise
and turning a lot of heads during the preseason,
the former Ute Britain cove has been officially pardoned.
After suffering a thumb injury early in preseason, Covey pulled it out
and stitched together some remarkable returns on special teams for the Eagles.
Fielding two kick returns, Covey recorded 45 yards against the Miami Dolphins.
He also recorded two punt returns for 21 yards (10.5 average).
Covey amassed a total of 92 kick return yards, finishing 11th in league.
So unless he has made an official NFL roster, his professional dreams
should not be over as his chances of still making a practice team are high.
