The Eagles’ wide receiver depth chart is a little light during the offseason program.
Undrafted wideout Trevon Grimes recently underwent a knee procedure, a person with knowledge of the injury told NJ Advance Media on Thursday. Grimes’ injury is not believed to be serious in nature, the person said.
Grimes was signed after going undrafted in May. He previously starred at the University of Florida after transferring from Ohio State in 2018.
Grimes played under Eagles quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson with the Gators. Johnson was Grimes’ offensive coordinator at Florida.
Grimes tore his left ACL during his senior season of high school at St. Thomas Aquinas. It’s unclear if the recent procedure is related to the previous injury.
During Grimes’ three-year stint with the Gators, he collected 97 receptions for 1,444 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Grimes will compete for a job within the Eagles’ crowded wide receiver depth chart this summer in training camp. That group is led by first-round wide receiver DeVonta Smith, Jalen Reagor, Travis Fulgham and Greg Ward.
Grimes, listed as 6-foot-4 and 223 pounds, will compete with J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Quez Watkins, John Hightower, Khalil Tate and Jhamon Ausbon for a depth spot in the preseason.
Correction: The original post stated that Grimes tore his ACL as a freshman at Ohio State. He actually suffered the injury during his senior season of high school.
