Ronald Darby suffers knee injury against Cowboys

New, comments

The cornerback situation is not great.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

With the Eagles defense already annoyingly inconsistent against Dallas, halfway through the third quarter, Ronald Darby went down with what looked like a knee injury. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but was in the blue tent on the sideline immediately after and it was later announced that he wouldn’t be returning.

This is bad because he’s been playing really well the past few weeks, but also because cornerbacks Sidney Jones and Jalen Mills are already out with injuries. The Eagles are now down to just Rasul Douglas, Cre’Von LeBlanc, and Chandon Sullivan at corner. Yikes!

Before he was sidelined, the fourth-year player had five total tackles against Dallas, to add to 38 for the season, 12 passes defended and an interception.
