He sustained a knee injury. The Eagles waived Grimes Thursday and after going unclaimed Philadelphia placed him on injured reserve.

Mike Kaye for NJ Advance Media reported that his injury does not seem to be serious.

Grimes won’t count against the Eagles 90-man roster, and he’ll be a player to watch on their practice squad when he becomes fully healthy.

Entering college out of high school, the St. Thomas Aquinas product signed to play football at Ohio State. He then transferred back to his home state to UF in 2018.

He played three seasons with the Gators and recorded 97 catches for 1,444 yards and 14 touchdowns. His senior year Grimes shined despite being the clear third star in the passing game behind tight end Kyle Pitts and Kadarius Toney.
