by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) The Eagles acquired running back/return specialist Kenjon Barner from the Panthers Tuesday in exchange for a 2015 conditional seventh-round pick.

Lawrence had surgery to repair a broken foot July 31 and will remain on crutches for the first month of his recovery. He's set for a doctor's visit Sept. 4.
