Eagles CB/KR Jorrick Calvin underwent back surgery this week.

The procedure was described as "similar to the one Shawn Andrews had." Andrews' most recent surgery was a "two level microscopic lumbar disectomy" that required a 6-8 month recovery period. It's a serious procedure that would have Calvin iffy for the start of the 2011 season.

Eagles placed CB/KR Jorrick Calvin (back) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Coach Andy Reid revealed that Calvin may need surgery on the back. He averaged 10.4 yards on 12 punt returns and 21.6 yards on 32 kickoff returns. Chad Hall becomes the favorite to take over on kickoffs, with backup RB Jerome Harrison also an option.

Eagles coach Andy Reid said CB/KR Jorrick Calvin will return kicks in Week 12.

It was a one-game benching for Calvin, who gets his job back by default with Ellis Hobbs landing on injured reserve. DeSean Jackson will retain the punt return job.

Eagles CB/KR Jorrick Calvin was inactive for Sunday's game due to a couple bobbles he had in the return game in Week 10.

Calvin has returned both kicks and punts in his rookie season and done a decent job, but the mistakes in the Redskins game cost him, as he was inactive for the first time since Week 2. In Week 11, DeSean Jackson returned punts and Ellis Hobbs was the kick returner before getting injured. Calvin might get his kickoff return duties back by default with Hobbs out.

Updating a previous item, CB Jorrick Calvin will handle kickoff returns in addition to punts.

Calvin is filling in on punts for as long as DeSean Jackson (concussion) is out, but he appears to have taken the kickoff return job full time. Ellis Hobbs had been averaging 23.7 yards per return on kickoffs.

Rookie CB Jorrick Calvin will handle punt-return duties with DeSean Jackson (concussion) out this week.

Calvin was excellent as a fill-in last week, returning two punts for 46 yards against the Falcons. With Jackson's status in question beyond the Week 8 bye, Calvin could keep the job for multiple games.

Eagles CB/KR Jorrick Calvin left Sunday's game against the Redskins with a left shoulder injury.

Calvin's return is questionable.

Coach Andy Reid suggested Friday that rookie CB Jorrick Calvin could work his way into the mix on kick returns.

While CB Ellis Hobbs is expected to serve as the teams kick returner and WR DeSean Jackson is expected to return punts, Calvin could see time at both positions. The rookie isn't a sure bet to be active early in the season, though, so Hobbs and Jackson remain the primary return men.

Eagles acquired CB Jorrick Calvin from the Cardinals in exchange for RB/FB Charles Scott.

The two teams have essentially swapped disappointing sixth-round picks. Scott had tumbled down the depth chart in Philly, and Calvin was outplayed by undrafted free agent Marshay Green of Ole Miss. Expect Calvin to end up on the Eagles' practice squad.

Cardinals signed sixth-round CB Jorrick Calvin to a four-year contract.

Calvin missed his senior year at Troy because he was ruled academically ineligible. He had a tumultuous 2009, as he lost his aunt and uncle in the span of two days and became the proud father of a baby girl. Now finally able to turn his full attention to football, look for Calvin to compete for punt-return duties and slowly work his way up the depth chart at corner.
