Corey Clement

Running Back #30

College:Wisconsin
Age:25
Born:November 2, 1994

Corey Clement: Returning to Philly

Clement signed a one-year contract with the Eagles on Wednesday.

Analysis: Philadelphia opted not to tender the 25-year-old a contract as a restricted free agent in March, but the team is now bringing him back on a more affordable deal. Clement had a solid rookie campaign as an undrafted free agent in 2017, but he's been limited by injury to 15 games over the past two seasons. The Eagles didn't add any running backs during the course of the 2020 NFL Draft, so the Wisconsin product figures to compete for the backup job with Boston Scott behind starter Miles Sanders.

Corey Clement: Cleared from shoulder injury

Clement (shoulder) received medical clearance Monday, NJ.com's Mike Kaye reports.

Analysis: The Super Bowl XXXIX hero has struggled with injuries ever since his big moment, limited to 15 games and 259 rushing yards over the past two seasons. Now that he's been cleared from October surgery, the unrestricted free agent hopes to re-sign with the Eagles. Regardless of where he ends up signing, Clement will need to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster, considering he's played nearly as many snaps on special teams (474) as on offense (497) in three NFL seasons.

Corey Clement: Hitting open market

Clement (shoulder) is set to become an unrestricted free agent, with the Eagles choosing not extend a contract tender, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.

Analysis: The minimum restricted free agent tender costs $2.132 million, which would be a large number for a third/fourth-string running back. Clement was never able to build on the promise of a rookie season that culminated with a huge performance in the Super Bowl, hindered by knee and shoulder injuries the past two years. He's believed to have undergone shoulder surgery in October.

Corey Clement: Could get RFA tender

Clement (shoulder) is set to become a restricted free agent in March, NJ.com's Mike Kay reports.

Analysis: A Super Bowl hero at the end of his rookie season, Clement took a step back in 2018 with 3.8 yards per carry and then played just four games in 2019 before landing on injured reserve with a shoulder injury that required surgery. The Eagles may still value him for his versatility on both offense and special teams, but there's no real justification for using a first- or second-round RFA tender on the 2017 UDFA. An original-round tender would allow the Eagles to retain Clement at a reasonable price, or at least have the right of refusal if he gets an offer sheet from another team. Clement will need to prove his health and compete for a 53-man roster spot in 2020, be it with the Eagles or another team.

Corey Clement: Placed on IR

Clement (shoulder) has been placed on injured reserve.

Analysis: After picking up at least 68 rushing attempts in each of his first two seasons, Clement had been relegated to a special teams role in Year 3 while Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders split running back duties. Philadelphia promoted Boston Scott from the practice squad to fill Clement's spot.

Corey Clement: Won't play Sunday

Clement (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Analysis: With Darren Sproles (quadriceps) also out, the Eagles' Week 6 backfield will be led by Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders, with Boston Scott a candidate to be promoted from the team's practice squad for depth purposes.

October 11, 2019 12:42 PM EST

Corey Clement: Absent from practice

Clement (shoulder) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: With back-to-back absences at practice to begin Week 6, Clement will likely need to log some form of activity Friday for the Eagles to feel good about his chances of playing Sunday in Minnesota. If Clement is ultimately sidelined, the Eagles would be down to just Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders among their available running backs. Passing-down specialist Darren Sproles (quadriceps) has already been ruled out for the contest.

Corey Clement: DNP to begin week

Clement (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Clement expects to resume practicing Thursday, according to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia, so it doesn't appear as though he's dealing with a long-term injury. If the 24-year-old running back is able to get healthy in time for Sunday's tilt against the Vikings, he'll serve as the Eagles' No. 3 running back with Darren Sproles (quadriceps) sidelined, and he could additionally return punts.

Corey Clement: Opportunity on tap

Clement is in line for more work versus the Vikings on Sunday with Darren Sproles (quadriceps) ruled out, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Clement's primary opportunity will likely come as a punt returner, but it's noteworthy that he'll also step up as the No. 3 running back on the Eagles' roster as long as Sproles is unable to go. While it's likely that Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders will continue to dominate touches at the position for Philadelphia, a minor role on offense would at least give Clement fantasy value in deeper leagues.

Corey Clement: Only plays special teams in win

Clement played eight special teams snaps and none on offense in Thursday's 34-27 win over the Packers.

Analysis: Clement returned to the active roster after missing a week with a shoulder injury, but the Jordan Howard, Miles Sanders, and Darren Sproles trio handled all the work on offense. Even prior to the injury, the 24-year-old had seen just three offensive snaps all season. Clement's role will likely be confined to special teams for the foreseeable future.

September 28, 2019 9:30 AM EST

Corey Clement: Returning to action Thursday

Clement (shoulder) is listed as active Thursday at Green Bay.

Analysis: Clement progressed well through the shoulder injury that he picked up Week 2, going from DNP to LP to FP on Eagles injury reports in advance of this contest. Poised to return from a one-game absence, he may not be more than a special teamer with all of Miles Sanders, Jordan Howard and Darren Sproles healthy.

Corey Clement: Trending toward playing Thursday

Clement (shoulder), who is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Packers, is expected to be healthy enough to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Clement looked to be trending toward an inactive status for a second straight game after he was listed as a non-participant in the Eagles' initial practice report for Week 4, but his outlook improved substantially after he upgraded to a full listing Wednesday. While Clement isn't fully in the clear just yet, the Eagles will likely make him available Thursday if he experiences no complications during his pregame workout. The clear No. 4 option on the Eagles' depth chart at running back, Clement is expected to be limited mostly to special-teams work if he suits up.

September 26, 2019 10:27 AM EST

Corey Clement: Listed as questionable for Week 4

Clement (shoulder) practiced fully Wednesday but is listed as questionable for Thursday's game at Green Bay

Analysis: Clement emerged from Week 2 with a shoulder injury and didn't take the field this past Sunday against the Lions. The initial prognosis called for 1-to-2 weeks out of commission, but with a "full" designation on Wednesday's injury report, he has a chance to return Week 4. The Eagles will confirm Clement's availability, or lack thereof, about 90 minutes before Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff.

September 25, 2019 10:38 AM EST

Corey Clement: Trending upward

Clement (shoulder) was a limited participant on Tuesday's practice estimate, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Clement was listed as non-participant on Monday's report, so it appears the Wisconsin product is trending in the right direction in advance of Thursday's game against Green Bay.

September 24, 2019 1:36 PM EST

Corey Clement: Still battling shoulder issue

Clement (shoulder) was listed as a non-participant in Monday's practice estimate.

Analysis: Clement will need to get on the field in some capacity by Wednesday's practice. However, the fact that he wouldn't have been on the field if the Eagles hosted a Monday practice makes it likely Clement misses his second straight game. He serves mainly as a return man anyway, so Miles Sanders will field kicks if Clement sits out.

September 23, 2019 1:50 PM EST

Corey Clement: Will not play vs. Lions

Clement (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Analysis: This comes as no surprise, as Clement was unable to practice all week due to his shoulder injury. Reports surfaced earlier this week that Clement would likely be sidelined for 1-to-2 weeks, so his status for Week 4 is certainly in doubt as well. Clement had gotten very limited work on offense to start the season, so his absence shouldn't have much of an impact Sunday.

September 20, 2019 12:26 PM EST

Corey Clement: Spectator at practice

Clement (shoulder) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Monday that Clement's right shoulder injury would likely keep him sidelined for 1-to-2 weeks, but the Eagles have yet to officially rule him out for Sunday's game against the Lions. That said, Clement's lack of practice participation Wednesday and Thursday suggests that he'll likely trending toward an inactive status in Week 3. The 24-year-old has mainly handled a special-teams role through the Eagles' first two games, logging just three offensive snaps between the contests.

September 19, 2019 1:32 PM EST

Corey Clement: No practice Wednesday

Clement (shoulder) is listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report.

Analysis: Clement is nursing a shoulder injury suffered during Sunday's loss to the Falcons and is expected to miss at least one week. He was spotted wearing a sling following the Week 2 contest, according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, but it was reportedly just a precautionary measure. Miles Sanders stands to see work returning kicks as long as Clement is unable to go, with Darren Sproles handling punt returns.

September 18, 2019 1:27 PM EST

Corey Clement: Will miss at least one week

Clement (shoulder) underwent an MRI on Monday and is expected to miss one or two weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Clement suffered a shoulder injury during the third quarter of Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Falcons. He did not return to the game, but appears to only be managing a short-term injury. As long as Clement is forced to miss time, expect Miles Sanders to handle kick returns and Darren Sproles to take back punts.

September 16, 2019 10:58 AM EST

Corey Clement: Taken to locker room

Clement (shoulder) was taken to the locker room during Sunday's game against the Falcons, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

Analysis: It's unclear when Clement may have gotten hurt, but he joins an extensive list of Eagles injured in this one, highlighted by wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin).
