    Eagles' Kenjon Barner: Sees six touches, 22 snaps

    Kenjon Barner rushed five times for seven yards and caught one of two targets for nine yards in Thursday's win over Carolina.Barner out-snapped Corey Clement, 22-10, and out-touched the rookie, 6-2, as both continue to fill in for Wendell Smallwood, who missed a second straight game with swelling in his knee. Meanwhile, LeGarrette Blount has grabbed a firm hold as the lead back in this offense, rendering Barner and Clement moot for fantasy except in very deep leagues.

    Eagles' Kenjon Barner: Sees five touches in win

    Kenjon Barner rushed five times for 23 yards in Sunday's victory over Arizona.Four of his carries came in the first half before it turned into a blowout, and then the Philadelphia Eagles turned to LeGarrette Blount to close out the game. After Barner was re-signed last week as a partial replacement for Darren Sproles in the passing game, it comes as a bit of a surprise that the Oregon product saw no targets and yet just two fewer carries than rookie Corey Clement. Wendell Smallwood's knee injury isn't expected to cause him to miss much time, jumbling the picture for him, Clement and Barner alike going forward.

    Eagles' Kenjon Barner: Could be used on offense Sunday

    Kenjon Barner might see work in the offense on Sunday against the Cardinals if Wendell Smallwood is limited or out, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.The Philadelphia Eagles re-signed Barner after Darren Sproles was lost to injury for the season in Week 3 and only saw action on special teams in his first game back. If Smallwood is still hampered by the swelling in his knee come Sunday, the door is potentially open for Barner, who is seen as a better fit in the passing game than either LeGarrette Blount or Corey Clement. The 28-year-old running back played 13 games last year for the Eagles, rushing 27 times for 129 yards and two touchdowns to go with 42 yards on five receptions.

    Eagles' Kenjon Barner: Signs one-year deal with Eagles

    Kenjon Barner signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday.Despite surprisingly keeping five running backs on the roster to start the season, the Eagles have had bad luck with injuries and lost both Darren Sproles (arm/knee) and Donnel Pumphrey (hamstring) to injured reserve. Barner is plenty familiar with the Eagles, having played 23 games with the team over the last two seasons. He'll likely battle with undrafted free agent Corey Clement for the third-string running back role, while he has experience as a returner and could see some action on special teams as well.

    Kenjon Barner: Released by Chargers

    Kenjon Barner was released by the Chargers on Saturday, Ricky Henne of the team's official site reports.Barner was outperformed by undrafted rookie Austin Ekeler in the preseason, so his release isn't a total surprise. As a vested veteran, Barner is immediately eligible to sign elsewhere.

    Chargers' Kenjon Barner: Fumbles twice in preseason loss

    Kenjon Barner carried the ball eight times for 28 yards in Thursday's preseason loss to the 49ers. He almost fumbled twice.While Thursday marked the most work the 28-year-old has seen all preseason, it wasn't exactly a banner performance as Barner looks to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. With Melvin Gordon and Branden Oliver seemingly locking up their spots on the RB depth chart, and undrafted rookie Austin Ekeler continuing to make a name for himself (103 total yards Thursday), Barner's hope of making the active roster may fall on his abilities as a returner. The Los Angeles Chargers, like every other NFL team, will make a wide sweep of cuts by Saturday, meaning we'll find out soon whether the former Oregon star will stick around for the regular season.

    Chargers' Kenjon Barner: Returns from concussion

    Kenjon Barner (concussion) returned to action during Sunday's preseason loss to the Saints, Eric Williams of ESPN.com reports.Despite practicing in a limited fashion Thursday, Barner wasn't a candidate to play in preseason Week 2 in the mind of head coach Anthony Lynn on Friday. That said, Barner clearly passed through the final steps of the concussion protocol in the meantime. His performance Sunday was lacking, as evidenced by three carries for minus-one yard and no receptions on one target. His return coincided with RB Kenneth Farrow suffering an ankle injury, though, so the door could be ajar for one of the final spots on the 53-man roster.

    Chargers' Kenjon Barner: Practices Thursday

    Kenjon Barner (concussion) returned to practice Thursday, Eric Williams of ESPN.com reports.Barner missed practice time earlier this week while in the NFL's concussion protocol. With the 28-year-old now back to work, he could even be in line to play in the team's preseason contest Sunday against the Saints if fully cleared for action by that time. Though clearly behind Melvin Gordon and Brandon Oliver in the Los Angeles Chargers' backfield pecking order, Barner is looking to cement a role with the squad as a change-of-pace back/special-teamer.

    Chargers' Kenjon Barner: Enters concussion protocol

    Kenjon Barner is currently going through the NFL's concussion protocol, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.It's unclear exactly when Barner suffered his concussion. Given the nature of the beast, he'll likely miss close to a week, meaning his status for Sunday's preseason contest against the Saints is questionable at best.

    Chargers' Kenjon Barner: Listed as main kick returner

    Kenjon Barner is listed as the Los Angeles Chargers' No. 1 kick returner in the most recent, unofficial depth chart, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.Barner is also in contention for the backup running back job behind Melvin Gordon (knee), but for now it appears as if Branden Oliver has the role on lockdown. Barner, who joined the Chargers in the offseason, is likely the most explosive weapon the team has had on special teams in years. Even if Barner were to win the backup job, there's certainly a possibility that he could end up returning kicks as well.
