The Philadelphia Eagles announced Tuesday that they’ve placed CB Cre’Von LeBlanc on injured reserve and designated DE Genard Avery to return from injured reserve.
- The Eagles also released RB Adrian Killins from their practice squad.
It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks.
LeBlanc, 26, originally signed on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic back in 2016. He was among New England’s final roster cuts and was quickly claimed off waivers by the Bears.
Chicago elected to cut LeBlanc loose coming out of the preseason in 2018 and the Lions later signed him to their practice squad. Detroit waived him in November and he was later claimed off waivers by the Eagles.
Philadelphia signed LeBlanc to a one-year extension in 2019. He was released and re-signed in a procedural move at the beginning of 2020.
In 2020, LeBlanc appeared in seven games for the Eagles and recorded 18 total tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, one recovery, no interceptions and two pass defenses.
