Reid: Hall Likely To Return Kicks

Andy Reid said that wide receiver Chad Hall is likely to return most of the kickoffs Sunday night, replacing Jorrick Calvin, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve Thursday. Returner Gerald Lawson was added to the roster Friday morning, but he likely doesn't have enough time to get acclimated to the scheme.

"Chad's been doing some of it (in practice) and (Jeremy) Maclin's been doing some of it," Reid said. "Chad's been getting most of the reps."

On the injury front, middle linebacker Stewart Bradley (elbow) has been declared out and linebacker Keenan Clayton (hamstring) will be listed as doubtful. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson (foot) and cornerback Asante Samuel (knee) will both be listed as probable after being limited participants Friday. Defensive tackle Mike Patterson (knee) is questionable.

Reid said that "we'll see when the time comes," when asked if Derrick Burgess will be active for the first time after joining the team last week.

Reid also said "there's a chance" that Calvin will require surgery for the injury to his lower back.
