Eagles place Corey Clement, Josh Sweat on injured reserve



The Philadelphia Eagles have placed Corey Clement and Josh Sweat on injured reserve. Their seasons are now over.

Clement left Sunday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys with a sprained knee while Sweat left with an ankle injury. To replace Clement and Sweat on the roster, the Eagles signed Boston Scott from the New Orleans Saints practice squad and defensive end Daeshon Hall.

Scott was drafted out of Louisiana Tech by the Saints in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He initially made the Saints’ 53-man roster, but was waived on September 5 and re-signed to the practice squad.

Scott hasn’t been active for any regular season games but was given a fair amount of reps in the preseason, and convinced the Saints that he was worth a roster spot. In four preseason games, Scott recorded 25 carries for 121 yards and one touchdown, and also caught three passes for 18 yards.

Scott had 183 carries for 1,047 yards and eight touchdowns in his senior season at Louisiana Tech, having 20 catches for 181 yards and a touchdown.

Hall was able to parlay his production at Texas A&M (158 tackles and 14 sacks) into a spot in the early rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft, as he was selected by the Carolina Panthers, who traded up to draft him with the No. 77-overall pick in the third round. But his rookie season failed to launch, as he only played in the regular season opener before undergoing knee surgery that ended his season.

Returning for 2018, Hall did not impress in training camp: Hall had only recorded a lone pass deflection and two assisted tackles through most of the preseason, before he recorded two tackles and a sack in the preseason finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Hall was on and off the Houston Texans practice squad before signing with the Eagles.

The Eagles also made another roster move on Tuesday, signing cornerback Josh Hawkins to the practice squad. Hawkins had been signed to the Carolina Panthers’ practice squad shortly after failing to make the Green Bay Packers’ roster. Hawkins did not record any statistics with the Panthers, but did earn playing time over second-year cornerback Corn Elder due to his abilities on special teams. He played in five games before being released for Kenjon Barner in November. 

Hawkins started three games for the Green Bay Packers in 2017, which singed him as an undrafted free agent in 2016. Hawkins started in three games that season, having a forced fumble and six pass deflections, including 37 tackles and six quarterback hits.

Hawkins allowed 26 carries for 269 yards and six touchdowns as opposing quarterbacks had a 126.0 passer rating when targeting him.
