The Eagles have placed kick returner Jorrick Calvin on injured reserve with a back injury.

He has not practiced all week.

The team has not made a roster move, although one possibility would be to bring up Joquie Bell off the practice squad. The Eagles also could use Chad Hall as a kick returner and make a move to bolster another position.

Calvin has returned 32 kickoffs for 696 yards, an average of 21.6 yards per return.
