  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: No designation for Sunday

    Maddox (toe) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers. Maddox returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since suffering the toe injury against Dallas on Dec. 24. He remained limited Thursday but was upgraded to a full participant Friday and has been cleared for game action. The fifth-year cornerback recorded 43 tackles, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one sack and one interception across nine appearances this season and figures to reprise his role as Philadelphia's top slot corner during the NFC title game.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Remains iffy for Sunday

    Maddox (toe) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. Maddox is on the verge of missing a fourth consecutive matchup this weekend due to a toe injury, as the fifth-year cornerback said Thursday that he's still taking it day-by-day, per Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia. Maddox also practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, so Friday's practice/injury report should ultimately provide further clarification regarding the 26-year-old's availability for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Returns to practice Wednesday

    Maddox (toe) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice. Maddox was back on the practice field for the first time since suffering the toe injury against Dallas on Dec. 24. Because he's been sidelined for just over a month, Maddox will likely have to log at least one full practice by Friday if he wants to avoid carrying an injury designation into Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Could practice again this week

    Eagles coach Nick Sirianni said Monday he's "hopeful" that Maddox (toe) will return to practice Wednesday, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Maddox has not practiced or played since he sustained a toe injury in the Week 16 loss to Dallas. While Sirianni did express optimism, he also clarified that the team still needs to see the cornerback perform "the football movements that he has to go out there and do," before deciding if he's fit to play again. The 26-year-old also was seen with a walking boot in the locker room following Saturday's divisional-round win over the Giants, per Frank. Therefore, it could be more likely that Maddox will be ready to return by the Super Bowl if Philadelphia advances with a win during Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Sitting out Saturday's playoff tilt

    Maddox (toe) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Giants. Maddox sustained a toe injury during the Week 16 loss to Dallas, leaving him sidelined for the final two games of the regular season. While the Eagles had a week off during the wild-card round as the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the 26-year-old cornerback will now miss his third consecutive contest due to this issue. In his absence, defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson will likely slot in at nickel corner while safeties Marcus Epps and Reed Blankenship both see significant usage in the secondary as well.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Officially out for Week 18

    Maddox (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Giants, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. As expected, Maddox will miss the regular-season finale due to a toe injury that he suffered during Philadelphia's Christmas Eve loss to Dallas. C.J. Gardner-Johnson (abdomen), who's on track to play in Week 18, will presumably take over Maddox's usual role as the Eagles' primary slot cornerback.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Out indefinitely with toe injury

    Maddox suffered a significant toe injury in Saturday's loss to the Cowboys and is now expected to remain out indefinitely, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Maddox is now in line to miss the rest of the regular season after sustaining what has since been revealed as a significant toe injury this past weekend in Dallas. While C.J. Gardner-Johnson (abdomen) is now eligible to come off injured reserve and possibly work in the slot in place of Maddox, the Eagles also have James Bradberry, Darius Slay and Josiah Scott to handle the team's cornerback duties for the time being.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Requires walking boot

    Maddox (toe) was seen wearing a walking boot on his left foot after Saturday's 40-34 defeat in Dallas, Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Maddox was forced out of Week 16 action after his third-quarter sack of Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. If Maddox is forced to miss any time, Josiah Scott would be the top candidate to earn extra snaps at cornerback for the Eagles.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Back on active roster

    Philadelphia activated Maddox (hamstring) from its injured reserve list to the active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game at the Giants. After missing the Eagles' last four games recovering from a hamstring injury, Maddox appears to be in line to play in Week 14. He should reestablish himself as Philadelphia's primary slot corner, an assignment that would draw him across from Richie James on Sunday.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Practicing again

    Maddox (hamstring) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday. The Eagles have now opened a 21-day practice window for Maddox to return to the active roster following his stint on IR with a hamstring injury. The cornerback has missed the team's last four games and appears unlikely to be available for Sunday's matchup with the Giants. Maddox has produced 27 tackles, three pass deflections, an interception, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery over six games this year.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: IR-bound with hamstring injury

    Philadelphia placed Maddox (hamstring) on its injured reserve list Monday. Maddox will be forced to miss at least the Eagles' next four games as he recovers from a hamstring injury he seems to have sustained in Week 9 at Houston. Josiah Scott, a 2020 fourth-round pick, will likely operate as Philadelphia's primary slot corner until Maddox is healthy enough to play again.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Doesn't practice Thursday

    Maddox (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday. Maddox appears to have picked up a hamstring injury during last Thursday's matchup against Houston, and he was unable to participate in this Thursday's practice as a result. Luckily, the 26-year-old gets the benefit of having 10 days worth of rest between Philadelphia's Week 9 and Week 10 contests, but he'll still presumably need to practice in some capacity either Friday or Saturday to have a shot at playing Monday versus Washington. If Maddox is eventually ruled out, Zech McPhearson and Josiah Scott (ankle) would be candidates for additional cornerback snaps behind starters James Bradberry and Darius Slay.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Cleared for Week 6

    Maddox doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against Dallas. Maddox, who's missed back-to-back games due to an ankle issue, is set to make his first appearance since Week 3. Before his injury, the 2018 fourth-round pick was operating as the Eagles' top nickel corner and played over 80 percent of the team's defensive snaps in each of his appearances. He figures to reprise that role against the Cowboys on Sunday.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Won't play at Arizona

    Maddox (ankle) is listed as out for Week 5 at the Cardinals. Maddox will miss his second consecutive game as he tends to an ankle injury he picked up during practice leading up to Week 4. 2021 fourth-rounder Zech McPhearson should be in line to see more work in nickel and dime packages in Maddox's absence.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Status uncertain for Week 5

    Maddox (ankle) has an uncertain status for Sunday's game against Arizona, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Maddox didn't play in the Eagles' Week 4 win over the Jaguars due to an ankle sprain, and he was seen in a walking boot after the game. However, even if he's unable to suit up against the Cardinals, the cornerback isn't believed to be dealing with a long-term injury.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Ruled out for Week 4

    Maddox (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against Jacksonville, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports. Maddox landed on the injury report Thursday as a limited participant due to an ankle injury, and while the extent of the issue remains unclear, it's severe enough to force him out of Week 4. The fifth-year defensive back has operated as the team's primary slot corner, so his absence will be a significant loss with Christian Kirk and the Jaguars coming to town.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Nabs INT in win

    Maddox, who was limited at Wednesday's practice with a back injury, had eight tackles (four solo) and one interception during Monday's 24-7 win against the Vikings. Maddox finished as the Eagles' second-leading tackler behind inside linebacker T.J. Edwards in Week 2. The cornerback also made a leaping interception on a pass intended for wide receiver Adam Thielen in the third quarter, marking the second of three picks thrown by quarterback Kirk Cousins on Monday. Maddox should attract plenty of targets while playing in coverage alongside Darius Slay and James Bradberry this season.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Limited in Wednesday's walkthrough

    Maddox (back) was limited during Wednesday's walkthrough. Maddox recorded eight tackles and one interception across 48 defensive snaps during Monday's win over the Vikings, but he presumably picked up a back issue as well. If he doesn't get upgraded to a full participant Thursday or Friday, he may be in danger of missing his first contest of the season.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Lands on COVID list

    Maddox was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after testing positive for the virus, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Maddox had four tackles and a pass breakup during Sunday's win over Washington, but he's now on the COVID list in advance of Week 18. He can still clear the league protocols in time for Saturday's matchup with the Cowboys.
