LB Lloyd Activated; Fokou To IR

Posted Nov 29, 2011

Linebacker Greg Lloyd, a seventh-round pick by the Eagles in this year's draft, has been called up to the 53-man roster from the practice squad, the team announced Tuesday. Lloyd, who has been on the practice squad all season long, takes the roster spot of fellow linebacker Moise Fokou, himself a seventh-round pick in 2009, who was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

Lloyd, 6-1, 247, started 23 games at middle linebacker at the University of Connecticut, amassing 177 tackles, three sacks and an interception. He earned second-team All-Big East honors following the 2009 season after starting 10 games and finishing second on the squad with a career-high 91 tackles and one sack. A native of Clermont, FL, Lloyd attended East Ridge High School, where he earned All-Central Florida honors. He is the son of former Steelers linebacker Greg Lloyd.

In April, head coach Andy Reid called Lloyd "a big, physical guy from Connecticut and he’s very good inside the tackles; he will hit you."
