Philadelphia Eagles safety Jerome Couplin land on the season-ending injured reserve list, according to a report from Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.
Eagles S Jerome Couplin could be headed to IR this week, according to a source.— Jimmy Kempski (@JimmyKempski) November 15, 2015
Couplin suffered a shoulder injury during Philadelphia's Week 9 win over the Cowboys. He left the game and did not return. Couplin was held out of practice all week leading up to Philadelphia's Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins before being ruled out. Couplin doesn't get regular playing time on defense, but he does contribute on special teams.
If the Eagles are forced to place Couplin on injured reserve, they could look to promote Ed Reynolds from their practice squad to take his place. Reynolds lost out to Couplin in a training camp battle at the safety spot this summer. The Eagles could also look to take a chance on a free agent or sign a player from some other team's practice squad, similar to how they poached Couplin away from the Detroit Lions last year.
The Eagles have placed six players on injured reserve so far this year. Couplin could be the seventh.
