Eagles Place Tight End Clay Harbor on Injured Reserve

No. 2 tight end Clay Harbor was expected to be a bigger part of the Philadelphia Eagles’ offense this season. Like so many others, however, Harbor was nothing more than a disappointment in his third year in the league.

The Eagles ended Harbor’s season on Tuesday by placing him on Injured Reserve; he suffered a back injury in last Thursday night’s loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Harbor finished the year with only 188 yards on 25 catches, only a 7.52 yards per catch average. Most of that production came in the last two games when Brent Celek was out with an injury; in those two games, he combined for 9 catches, 82 yards, and a touchdown.

He was supposed to see more of the field in two tight-end sets like he did in the preseason, but the Eagles ended up going with more two-back sets than expected thanks to the decimating injuries to the offensive line.

Nobody has taken Harbor’s spot on the roster as of yet.
