Croom (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday after tearing his right patella tendon, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports. As expected, Croom's MRI showed a full tear of his patella tendon, and his 2021 campaign is now over. The 27-year-old has appeared in just four NFL games since 2018, when he played in 15 contests and caught 22 passes -- including one touchdown -- for the Bills.
Croom (knee) is believed to have suffered a right patella tendon injury in Thursday's preseason loss to the Patriots, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports. Croom is undergoing an MRI to diagnose the full extent of his injury, and if a patella tendon tear is confirmed, it will only be a matter of time before the Eagles officially rule him out for the 2021 season. Across four appearances for Philadelphia last season, Croom turned his only target into a three-yard touchdown.
Croom has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's preseason game due to a knee injury. Croom was targeted on the second play of the second quarter Thursday, but he sustained an injury on the play. The tight end was put into an air cast and carted off the field, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. The specifics of the issue aren't yet clear, but the 27-year-old appears to be dealing with a relatively serious injury.
Croom was promoted to the Eagles' active roster Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Croom hasn't logged an offensive snap for the Eagles since Week 8, but he now rejoins the active roster and will provide depth at tight end behind Zach Ertz with Dallas Goedert nursing a calf injury.
Croom signed a contract with the Eagles' practice squad Wednesday. Croom was waived by the Eagles on Tuesday, but rejoined the team on the practice squad after going unclaimed. The 26-year-old has suited up in four games with the Eagles this season, recording a three-yard touchdown reception on his lone target.
