Philadelphia Eagles bring back Kenjon Barner in wake of Sproles' injury

Sproles out with torn ACL and broken forearm Smallwood will take over 3rd-down duties | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Barner, 28, spent the last two seasons with the Eagles after he was acquired in a trade with the Panthers.

One day after placing Sproles on season-ending IR with a torn Achilles, the Eagles have announced the signing of running back Kenjon Barner, who they worked out on Tuesday.

Barner gained 253 yards on 55 carries in two seasons with the Birds, but Philadelphia did not make a strong push to re-sign the ball carrier this offseason. He also had three punt returns for 19 yards and 10 kickoff returns for 287 yards.

With Sproles on IR and out for the season, the next punt returner in line was Torrey Smith, who before last Sunday had never returned a punt in the National Football League, and had only one punt return attempt in college. In Sproles' 12-year career, he has scored seven touchdowns on punt returns and two on kick returns.

With Barner signed, the Eagles have all 53 spots on their roster filled. Barner's role will begin to unfold against the Chargers in Week 4.

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

The better news? He also knows the offense of the team the Eagles will be playing this Sunday in California - the Chargers. The Eagles do have running back Byron Marshall on the practice squad, but it appears they have chose to go in another direction.
