The Philadelphia Eagles signed cornerback Cre’Von LeBlanc to a one-year contract extension Monday.
The team followed up the move by placing the 25-year-old on injured reserve. LeBlanc is recovering from a foot injury sustained during training camp and can return to action after Week 8.
LeBlanc had 24 tackles in eight games (four starts) for the Eagles last season. He also started one of playoff game and had an interception against the New Orleans Saints.
The Eagles claimed LeBlanc midseason off waivers from the Detroit Lions, where he played in three games before moving on to Philadelphia. He appeared in 28 games for the Bears in 2016 and 2017.
