The Philadelphia Eagles announced Friday that they’ve placed CB Nolan Carroll on season-ending injured reserve.
- The Eagles also signed CB Jaylen Watkins off of the Bills’ practice squad.
Carroll suffered a broken right ankle during Thursday’s game against the Lions.
Carroll, 28, is in the final year of his two-year, $5.25 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $2.9 million before testing the open market next year.
Entering today’s game, Carroll had recorded 56 tackles, two interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown, and 10 pass defenses for the Eagles over the course of 10 games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 66 cornerback out of 110 qualifying players.
Watkins, 24, is a former fourth-round pick of the Eagles back in May of last year. He was among the Eagles’ final roster cuts and later signed to the Bills practice squad at the start of the regular season.
In 2014, Watkins appeared in four games and recorded three tackles and a pass defense.
