SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Utes star and current Philadelphia Eagles punt returner Britain Covey is already getting the rookie treatment before the home opener.

The Eagles faced the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football in their home opener when Britain Covey wasn’t allowed to park in the players’ lot before the game.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer and 94.1 WIP, Covey was trying to park in the players’ lot when the parking attendants wouldn’t allow the former Ute in because they didn’t believe he was a player.

“According to Howard Eskin of 94.1 WIP, Eagles punt returner Britain Covey, who was elevated from the practice squad on Monday afternoon, tried to park his car in the players’ lot before the game, but the attendants didn’t believe he was a player and wouldn’t let him park,” Philadelphia Inquirer writer Mike Sielski wrote. “Covey ended up parking elsewhere among several tailgaters. They apparently didn’t recognize him, either.”

SB Nation host Josh Reynolds tweeted out the bit from the Inquirer and was asking to get a confirmation from Covey.

Dan Adams posted a tweet with a photo of Covey with their group before the game, confirming that Covey parked in a nearby tailgate lot.

Covey later quote tweeted Adams, posting “great to meet you guys! Go birds!”

After signing with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent, Covey made a splash during training camp but didn’t make the 53-man roster. He was signed to the practice squad and has been called up to the active roster in each of the last two games.

Covey returned three punts for 14 yards on Monday Night Football, with his longest return going for eight yards. In the Eagles’ season-opening win over the Lions, Covey returned two punts for 13 yards. His longest return went for 11 yards.

The Eagles are 2-0 on the season and will be on the road to face NFC East division rival Washington Commanders on Sunday, September 25 at 11:00 a.m. MT on FOX.
