Eagles lose Jorrick Calvin for the season

The Eagles have lost another player for the season: DB/KR Jorrick Calvin has been placed on IR due to a back injury. Calvin, who was acquired back in August from the Cardinals, has had an unremarkable season which has mostly been limited to kickoff return duty. While he has had his moments, Calvin is a mediocre returner at best.

There is no word as of now from the Eagles as to who will replace Calvin on the roster and who will return kicks. It's possible that the Eagles will turn to Chad Hall for returns or they could bring in someone of the street with some experience in the role.

Calvin is the 9th Eagle to be placed on IR this season. He joins Nate Allen, Brandon Graham, Antoine Harris, Ellis Hobbs, Jamaal Jackson, Marlin Jackson, Ricky Sapp and Leonard Weaver on the sidelines.
