In John 1:14, why is the deponent verb ἐγένετο translated as if passive?

IE: Taking σὰρξ as "flesh":[Jhn 1:14 MGNT] (14) καὶ ὁ λόγος σὰρξ ἐγένετο καὶ ἐσκήνωσεν ἐν ἡμῖν καὶ ἐθεασάμεθα τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ δόξαν ὡς μονογενοῦς παρὰ πατρός πλήρης χάριτος καὶ ἀληθείας
"the Utterance made flesh and tented [in it]"
Or, taking σὰρξ as "human," might it not be deponent and be read:
"the Utterance made himself to be human" or "the Utterance became human" or something along those lines?
