  • Eagles' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: Career year in fourth pro season

    Gardner-Johnson finished the regular season with career highs in tackles (67) and interceptions (six).

    Gardner-Johnson totaled five interceptions across his three seasons in New Orleans, but he broke out following his late-August trade to Philadelphia. His six picks earned him a share of the league lead. The Eagles will presumably want to bring him back following his strong first season in midnight green, but he'll be a free agent after the year and could elect to move elsewhere.

  • Eagles' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: Will be available Week 18

    The Eagles activated Gardner-Johnson (abdomen) from injured reserve Saturday ahead of Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Johnson landed on IR after sustaining a lacerated kidney in the Week 12 win over Green Bay, though he returned to practice during Week 18 prep. The 25-year-old is not set to play again heading into the regular-season finale, though it's possible he could still see limited snaps in his first game back following a five-week layoff. If so, Marcus Epps and Reed Blankenship could both still be in line for significant usage in the Eagles' secondary Sunday.

  • Eagles' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: On track to play Week 18

    Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said Friday that Gardner-Johnson (abdomen) has looked good in practice and is hopeful that the 25-year-old will play Sunday against the Giants, Geoff Mosher of reports.

    Although Gardner-Johnson resumed practicing this week for the first time since he suffered a lacerated kidney in Week 12, he still needs to be officially added back to the Eagles' active roster in order for him to be available for Sunday's clash versus New York. Coach Sirianni's comments makes it sound like the 210-pound safety will snap his current five-game absence streak this weekend, and Reed Blankenship would likely revert back to a rotational role should that eventually be the case.

  • Eagles' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: Partaking in Week 18 prep

    Head coach Nick Sirianni said Wednesday that Gardner-Johnson (abdomen) will return to practice this week, Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Gardner-Johnson, who's been on injured reserve since Dec. 3 after suffering a lacerated kidney versus Green Bay in Week 12, is now slated to have his 21-day elevation window opened by Philadelphia on Wednesday. Though it sounds as if the 25-year-old will resume practicing this week, his activity levels during those sessions should indicate whether he'll be able to suit up this weekend versus the Giants. Once he's eventually given the green light, Gardner-Johnson will likely replace Reed Blankenship as a starter in the Eagles' secondary.

  • Eagles' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: Lands on IR

    The Eagles placed Gardner-Johnson (abdomen) on injured reserve Saturday.

    Gardner-Johnson sustained a lacerated kidney against the Packers in Week 12, though this injury is not anticipated to be season-ending. The starting safety will now be sidelined until at least Week 17 against the Saints. Gardner-Johnson recorded 60 tackles, one sack and eight passes defended, including a team-high six interceptions, so his absence will leave a big hole in Philadelphia's secondary. In his stead, expect undrafted rookie Reed Blankenship to fill in as the Eagles' starting free safety.

  • Eagles' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: Out with lacerated kidney

    Gardner-Johnson (abdomen) is dealing with a lacerated kidney and could be a candidate for injured reserve, Tim McManus of reports.

    The Eagles don't have an exact return timetable for Gardner-Johnson yet, but though his injury isn't expected to be season-ending, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that he is out indefinitely. The fourth-year defensive back thus won't be available for Sunday's contest against the Titans, and a placement on IR would require him to miss at least four games. Reed Blankenship will likely have to handle an increased defensive role as long as Gardner-Johnson is unavailable.
