Bengals Sign Former Panthers, Eagles Running Back Elijah Holyfield to Practice Squad

Cincinnati added some running back depth on Tuesday.

CINCINNATI — The Bengals are shorthanded at running back with Joe Mixon nursing an ankle injury and Samaje Perine on the NFL's Reserve/COVID-19 list. 

They're signing Elijah Holyfield to the practice squad on Tuesday according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. 

The 23-year-old went undrafted in the 2019 draft. He signed with the Panthers' practice squad before joining the Eagles' active roster at the end of the 2019 season. He appeared in one NFL game, but didn't record any statistics. 

Holyfield spent the 2020 season on the Eagles' practice squad. He was in Philadelphia during training camp, but was waived in August.

Holyfield is the son of boxing legend Evander Holyfield.
