WR Norwood Promoted, CB Robinson Waived

The Eagles have promoted wide receiver Jordan Norwood from the practice squad to the active roster. To make room for Norwood on the roster, the team has waived cornerback Ramzee Robinson.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson suffered a minor concussion on Sunday against the Redskins and his status for the upcoming game against the Atlanta Falcons is uncertain at the moment.

Norwood, 5-foot-11, 171 pounds, joined the Eagles practice squad on September 23, 2009. Originally signed as a rookie free agent by Cleveland after the 2009 NFL Draft, he saw action in three preseason games before being released as part of the Browns final roster cut down.

A four-year letterman at Penn State, Norwood recorded 158 receptions for 2,015 yards and 13 touchdowns, garnering honorable mention All-Big Ten honors as a senior.

If Jackson is unable to play on Sunday, Norwood will join Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and Reggie Brown on the field for the Eagles. Head coach Andy Reid has already ruled out wide receiver Kevin Curtis, who is still working his way back from a knee injury.

Stay tuned to bloghead for more details, including quotes from Norwood on his promotion.
