The Eagles upgraded their running back depth chart on Friday, claiming former Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson off waivers, Mike Kaye of NJ Advance Media reports.

The Lions waived Johnson on Thursday.  The 5-foot-11, 211-pound running back was a second-round pick in 2018. During his three seasons in Detroit, Johnson produced 1,225 rushing yards, 527 receiving yards and 11 total touchdowns. While he has a notable draft pedigree, Johnson only has a career average of 4.3 yards per carry. His production has also dropped off in each of the past two seasons following a promising rookie campaign.
