Off practice squad, Fulgham lifts injured Eagles

11:48 PM ET

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Travis Fulgham was signed off the practice squad Saturday. A day later, he elevated to the role of hero on “Sunday Night Football.”

Carson Wentz found Fulgham down the left side for a 42-yard touchdown with 4:08 remaining to lift the Eagles (1-2-1) over the San Francisco 49ers 25-20 and into sole possession of first place in the downtrodden NFC East.

“After we broke the huddle, Carson said, ‘Get ready,’ so I knew there was a good shot he’d get the ball to me,” Fulgham said after the victory in Santa Clara, California. “[I] came off the line, beat the corner, do what I do every day in practice. We just executed.

“At first, I lost the ball. But since Carson gave me a great throw, I was able to locate it, and it was right in the bread basket.”

Wentz said he and Fulgham had the opportunity to rep that play only once in practice, and they hit on it.

“So we’re 2-for-2 on that one,” Wentz said with a smile.
