Eagles To Give Bigger Role To Wendell Smallwood Without Sproles

Eagles To Give Bigger Role To Wendell Smallwood Without Sproles”

A familiar face is back in town.

Barner offers Philadelphia an option to fill out the running back rotation quickly, assuming he retained his knowledge of coach Doug Pederson's offense previous year.

The move comes one day after the Eagles placed running back Darren Sproles on season-ending injured reserve.

SiriusXM's Adam Caplan first reported the news about the imminent deal. He also averaged 30.8 yards per kickoff return featuring a long of 61 yards.

The Eagles confirmed they signed Barner on Tuesday afternoon.

Smallwood had 12 carries for 71 yards in Week 3. Barner is likely to contribute in a punt and kick returner role going forward.

Despite that encouraging production, the Eagles let Barner walk in free agency and opted to roll with Sproles, LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood and undrafted free agent Corey Clement in the backfield.

Philadelphia also has rookie running back Donnel Pumphrey on the roster, but the San Diego State product tore his hamstring during practice on September 15 and will also be out for the entire 2017 season.

With Barner signed, the Eagles have all 53 spots on their roster filled. They signed QB Nate Sudfeld to the practice squad before the Washington game, CB De'Vante Bausby to the practice squad before the Chiefs game and now Barner before the Chargers game.

He signed with the Los Angeles Chargers, the Eagles' opponent this week, but was released at the end of the preseason.
