Eagles KR/CB Jorrick Calvin

By Justin Adkins:

The Eagles have announced that rookie kick returner/backup cornerback Jorrick Calvin has been placed on Injured Reserve due to a back injury. 

His season is over.

Calvin was acquired in the preseason when the Eagles traded rookie running back Charles Scott to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for the sixth-round pick out of Troy .

For the season, Calvin had returned 32 kicks for 692 yards for a 21.6 yards-per-return average.  His long was 41 yards.  He also has returned 12 punts for 125 yards, an average of 10.4 with a long of 44.

Defensively, Calvin has played in 12 games, recording one tackle.

Earlier this week, the Eagles worked out free agent returners Justin Miller and Clifton Smith; however, a move to replace Calvin on the roster has yet to be made.
