Darby (knee) expressed optimism regarding his chances of being ready for Week 1 of the 2019 season, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Darby tore his ACL on Nov. 11, so a return in Week 1 would be relatively quick. He recently re-signed with the Eagles on a one-year contract. While he was the team's top cornerback prior to the injury, it may take him some time to fully get back to his old self. More clarity on his role entering the season will come once training camp kicks off.
Darby (knee) is signing a one-year contract to stay with the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Darby was the top cornerback in Philadelphia prior to suffering a torn ACL on Nov. 11. The team subsequently had a number of players emerge as viable options at the position, but none compares to Darby in terms of proven track record as a solid starter. The depth should allow him to approach his rehab in a conservative manner, potentially opening 2019 on the PUP list. Darby will have no problem finding a lucrative multi-year contract next offseason if he looks like his old self once he's healthy.
Darby (knee) is expected to test free agency in March, NJ.com's Mike Kay reports. Darby is no lock to be ready for Week 1 after suffering a torn ACL on Nov. 11, but he nonetheless profiles as one of the top cornerbacks in a weak free-agent class, having celebrated his 25th birthday in January. He likely will find a new home on the open market, as Philadelphia has solid cornerback depth with Jalen Mills, Rasul Douglas, Avonte Maddox, Cre'Von LeBlanc and Sidney Jones all under contract for at least one more season. It would come as a surprise if Darby had serious contract discussions with the Eagles prior to free agency.
Darby (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. Darby suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Cowboys. The Florida State product entered 2018 on the final year of his rookie contract, and will either re-sign with the Eagles or test free agency in March. In a corresponding move, the Eagles activated fellow cornerback De'Vante Bausby from the practice squad to the active roster.
Darby was seen with a brace on his right knee in the locker room after Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports. While the extent of Darby's injury isn't clear, there haven't been any signs the cornerback is dealing with anything severe at this point. However, we won't get a real feel for his impending availability until Wednesday when the Eagles issue their first injury report of the week.
