Eagles Place RB Corey Clement On IR, Promote RB Boston Scott

The Philadelphia Eagles have promoted RB Boston Scott to their active roster and placed RB Corey Clement on injured reserve.

Clement, 24, wound up signing on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin back in 2017. He agreed to a three-year, $1.66 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $645,000 for the 2019 season.

In 2019, Clement has appeared in four games, but has yet to receive a carry or catch a pass.

Scott, 24, is a former sixth-round pick of the Saints back in 2018. He signed a three-year, $1.71 million contract with New Orleans, but was waived him coming out of the preseason.

The Saints later signed Scott to their practice squad after clearing waivers and he was eventually added to the Eagles’ active roster last year. Philadelphia cut him loose at the start of the regular season before re-signing him to their taxi squad. 

During his college career at Louisiana Tech, Scott rushed for 1,840 yards on 288 carries (6.4 YPC) to go along with 32 receptions for 307 yards receiving and 15 total touchdowns over the course of 38 games. He also contributed 633 kick return yards on 29 attempts (21.8 YPA).
