Carroll (leg) has agreed to re-sign with the Eagles on a one-year contract, ESPN reports. Carroll started the first 11 games of last season before suffering a broken fibula in a Thanksgiving loss to the Lions. He may have to compete for a starting job in 2016, as the Eagles traded away Byron Maxwell but did sign Leodis McKelvin. 2015 second-round selection Eric Rowe also figures to compete for a starting spot on the outside.
Carroll (broken ankle) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports. Already coming unglued, the Philadelphia defense will lose arguably its most consistent cornerback. On the bright side, rookie second-round draft pick Eric Rowe should now have the opportunity to play nearly every defensive snap. Carroll, who can hit free agency this offseason, should have enough time to recover before training camp.
Carroll has been diagnosed with a broken right ankle, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Carroll left Thursday's game in Detroit on a cart and was ruled out shortly thereafter. With only five contests remaining on the schedule, he'll be hard-pressed to make another appearance this season. In the meantime, rookie Eric Rowe will likely get the nod at cornerback.
Carroll won't return to Thursday's contest in Detroit due to an ankle injury, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Carroll was carted off the field in the first half, and after undergoing X-rays, he was ruled out for the remainder of the contest. While the severity of the injury isn't known, Eric Rowe will cover for Carroll at cornerback.
Carroll returned an interception for a touchdown in Monday's 27-7 win over the Giants. Carroll's name wasn't called very often in the Eagles' first five games, which is normally a good sign for a cornerback. He put himself front-and-center in the team's sixth game of the year with his game-changing score, his first interception since 2013 and his first pick-six of his career. Carroll has played strong, consistent football as a key part of a defense that has seen its fortunes change dramatically with two dominant performances in a row.
