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.

Adam Caplan, of, reported earlier that the team had five players in for workouts this week, several of whom have experience in the return game.


Also, wide receiver DeSean Jackson (foot) and defensive tackle Mike Patterson (knee) were limited participants in practice.

In Minnesota, running back Adrian Peterson was expected to practice after taking part in this morning's walkthrough.
