Nolan Carroll Injury: Eagles cornerback ruled out vs. Lions with broken ankle

New, comments

The injury bug strikes again.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Nolan Carroll II injured his ankle and was carted off the Ford Field turf during he second quarter of Philadelphia's game against the Detroit Lions. Per the team, Carroll is out for the remainder of the game after being taken to the locker room for x-rays.

Carroll was carted off the field after being checked on by most of the Eagles sideline. The former Dolphins corner was replaced by rookie second-round pick Eric Rowe, who has played sparingly this season. Though Carroll has been burned over the last few games, the Eagles could use his veteran presence against the Lions, who have been taking advantage of the Philadelphia secondary so far.

The injuries continue to pile up for the Eagles. Left tackle Jason Peters, who has battled a litany of injuries all season, left the Thanksgiving game in the first quarter after a Lions player fell on his leg. He hasn't returned since leaving.

Update: The Eagles have announced that Carroll has a broken ankle. So it looks like Eagles fans will see plenty more of Eric Rowe this season.
