Eagles

The Eagles on Tuesday signed defensive end Daeshon Hall and running back Boston Scott to the 53-man roster and formerly placed defensive end Josh Sweat and running back Corey Clement on injured reserve. Both got hurt in the loss to the Cowboys Sunday. The team also signed CB Josh Hawkins to the practice squad

Hall, originally a third-round pick of the Panthers out of Texas A&M last year, played in only one game as a rookie with Carolina and got just nine snaps before going on IR with a knee injury. The Panthers released him before this season began, and he’s spent time since then on the 49ers’ and Texans’ practice squads.

Scott was the Saints’ sixth-round pick this year out of Louisiana Tech this year. He had been on the Saints’ practice squad since final cuts.

Clement hurt his knee in the loss to Dallas and Sweat injured his ankle.

Clement, a Super Bowl hero as an undrafted rookie last year with 100 receiving yards in the win over the Patriots, spent much of this season dealing with a nagging quad injury, but he had just started playing at a high level before getting hurt. 

He had 76 and 74 yards from scrimmage in the wins over the Giants and Redskins and finished with 68 carries for 259 yards and two rushing TDs plus 22 catches for 192 yards.

Sweat, a rookie fourth-round pick out of Florida State, didn’t play in the Eagles’ first four games this year but got some work after Derek Barnett suffered his season-ending shoulder injury against the Titans. Sweat got 68 reps on defense and 24 on special teams and had four tackles and two hurries.

 

Sweat is the sixth defensive player on injured reserve, joining Barnett, Ronald Darby, Rodney McLeod, Jalen Mills and Paul Worrilow. Clement joins Jay Ajayi, Mike Wallace and Mack Hollins as offensive players on IR.
