They needed an eighth lineman for depth with Wes Schweitzer already ruled out which is why Glaser (who only just re-signed to the practie squad) is up. The realistic options now are to start Billy Turner or Max Mitchell at left tackle or move Alijah Vera-Tucker or Mekhi Becton there. Indications were they didn't want to move anyone else, so they'll most likely go with Turner.
Eguavoen had to be signed to the 53 if he was going to play again and the team obviously likes his special teams abilities and experience which is why he's been playing over rookie Zaire Barnes.
These moves also clearly confirm that Greg Zuerlein will play tomorrow.
