Carroll (concussion) passed concussion protocol and was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Carroll will now return to the field after missing last week's win over the Falcons. The cornerback's return is a big boost to the Eagles' secondary, as he'll play a major in slowing down Seattle's wideouts on Sunday. If he sees his reps limited because of the injury, look for C.J. Smith to have an expanded role.
Carroll remains in the NFL's concussion protocol. Carroll already missed a Week 10 matchup with the Falcons due to a concussion and it appears he's yet to clear the lingering symptoms. He still needs to pass through the final few stages of the league-mandated protocol, which should currently give him a questionable designation heading into Sunday's game against the Seahawks. If he's ultimately held out, C.J. Smith and Jalen Mills could see additional reps again on Sunday.
Carroll has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Falcons due to a concussion, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Carroll's absence provides C.J. Smith and Jalen Mills with the opportunity to see additional reps at cornerback. Carroll will need to pass through the league's concussion protocol in order to play next week against the Seahawks.
Carroll (ankle) did not practice on Friday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Carroll's off-day lets him rest his injured ankle that landed him on the IR last season. The 29-year-old is slated to be the Week 1 starter, although his ankle limitations could complicate things.
Carroll (ankle) claims his ankle was never broken, and although he never revealed the true specifics of the ankle injury he suffered last November, he is now fully healed and ready to resume practicing, NJ.com reports. After roughing up his lower leg last November against the Eagles, Carroll was placed on injured reserve with what was believed to be a broken ankle. A clean break could have required a significantly longer rehab process, but with Carroll evidencing his health with a video of himself sprinting up stairs, the veteran corner should be available as soon as training camp.
