Injuries can’t stop the Eagles’ punt returners from making an impact.

Kenjon Barner was named NFC special teams player of the week, after making some big plays against the Cardinals.

Barner was signed when running back Darren Sproles was lost for the season to injury, and did a pretty good impression of him last week.

Barner returned three punts for 110 yards, and his 76-yarder in the first quarter set up a touchdown in the blowout win.

He’s the second Eagle to win the award this year, along with kicker Jake Elliott. Neither of them were on the roster at the beginning of the season.

  1. I am glad to see Barner confident on returns again. He got knocked out cold in College on a kick return and hasn’t been the same player since. That concussion kept him out for several weeks, hurting his stats, confidence, and draft stock. Before the injury he was the most NFL ready back to come through Eugene since Jonathan Stewart.

    As a close friend of the organization Kenjon is a “Chip Kelly” guy and I am surprised he got the nod over Pumphrey

    As a close friend to the organization, I’m surprised you weren’t aware that Pumphrey is out for the year.
