    Eagles' Byron Maxwell: Active for Week 5

    Maxwell (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's game against the Saints, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports. Maxwell logged full practices Thursday and Friday and was listed as probable heading into Sunday's game, so his status was never really in peril. The cornerback has been victimized in coverage frequently in his first season in Philadelphia, but it's probably helped his cause for fantasy purposes. Since he's being heavily targeted, Maxwell has received ample opportunity to rack up the stops, as his 23 tackles through four games put him on pace to blow past his career-best mark in that category.

    Eagles' Byron Maxwell: Listed as probable

    Maxwell (quadriceps) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Saints. Maxwell logged full practices Thursday and Friday, after sitting out Wednesday's session. He's on pace for a career-best 92 tackles, but it will be a big surprise if he actually reaches that number, as his 10-tackle game against Julio Jones and the Falcons was an obvious outlier. Of course, if he continues to struggle in coverage, Maxwell will probably see far more targets than what was expected heading into the year.

    Eagles CB Byron Maxwell (shoulder) likely to play Week 5

    Eagles cornerback Byron Maxwell (shoulder) will likely be able to play in Sunday's game against the Saints, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

If Maxwell doesn't end up playing in Week 5, Rowe will likely get the start.

    Eagles CB Byron Maxwell leaves game due to quad injury

    Eagles cornerback Byron Maxwell (quad) is questionable to return Sunday against the Redskins. The Eagles have been struggling mightily in the secondary, and the defense is likely to struggle badly if he can't return. EJ Biggers should take over for him in the lineup.

    Eagles CB Byron Maxwell could shadow top receiver across field

    The Eagles want to get maximum value out of their big free-agent acqusition in cornerback Byron Maxwell, per ESPN.com. The team could experiment with Maxwell shadowing the opponent's top receiver across the field, not limiting him to just one side. "We can," defensive coordinator Bill Davis said. "I'm not going to say we are, but we can. We have that ability. Right now, we change them left and right every day, so they're working on the right side, they're working on the left side." With Dez Bryant, Odell Beckham and DeSean Jackson all in the Eagles' division, Maxwell could get a lot of work covering top receivers this season. Maxwell recorded 39 tackles and two interceptions in 13 games for the Seahawks last season.

    DeMeco Ryans likes improved Eagles' defense

    Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans likes the changes that the team has made to its defense in the offseason. "We got better on the outside, which we struggled at last year," Ryans said, per ESPN. "We had a lot of struggles there on the outside at the corner position, so I feel we've upgraded there with (Byron) Maxwell , a guy that you've seen make a lot of plays for the Seahawks. A guy like Kiko (Alonso), who his rookie year was a really outstanding player, up for defensive rookie of the year, a playmaker all over the field, and another guy in (Walter) Thurmond , who is expected to definitely push guys to be the starting corner on the other side. So I feel like we upgraded at a lot of positions, and I feel like it's really going to improve our defense."
