  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Underwent successful surgery

    Blankenship is fully recovered from surgery to repair a groin injury that he suffered Week 18, Brooks Kubena of The Athletic reports.

    Blankenship signed a one-year extension with the Eagles on Monday after a 2023 campaign that saw him record a team-leading 113 combined tackles despite playing just 15 regular-season games. "It feels good now not being as sore anymore like I did this past season dealing with it," the safety said Tuesday, insinuating the injury was affecting him before his Week 18 exit. A healthy Blankenship should be a key piece of the Eagles secondary in 2024.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Gets one-year extension

    The Eagles signed Blankenship (groin) to a one-year contract extension Monday.

    Blankenship led Philadelphia in tackles (113 total, 79 solo) and interceptions (three) last season while suiting up for 15 regular-season games, so it makes complete sense for the team to extend him through 2025. A groin injury kept Blankenship from suiting up for the Eagles' wild-card loss to the Buccaneers, but given that his status for that contest came down to the wire, the safety should be fully healthy for the start of offseason workouts.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Leads team in tackles and picks

    Blankenship (groin) appeared in 15 regular-season games this season, leading the Eagles in interceptions (three), solo tackles (79) and total tackles (113).

    The second-year pro took a big step forward from a rookie season that saw him record just 34 tackles in 10 games, four of which were starts. The former undrafted free agent is now a key part of the Eagles defense and should remain one next season, as the groin injury that caused him to miss the team's wild-card loss shouldn't be a long-lasting problem given that he was listed as questionable leading up to the game.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Will miss wild-card game

    Blankenship (groin) is inactive for Monday's wild-card contest against the Buccaneers.

    Blankenship was hurt during Philadelphia's season finale against the Giants and wasn't able to practice at all leading up to Monday's contest. He was still given a designation of questionable after the team's final practice session, but he's ultimately been deemed unable to suit up. Sydney Brown tore his ACL in Week 18 and is done for the season, so Avonte Maddox is sliding over from cornerback to start at safety.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Could suit up vs. Buccaneers

    Blankenship (groin) is listed as questionable ahead of Monday night's game against the Buccaneers.

    Blankenship sustained a groin injury in the Eagles' regular-season finale -- despite a week of no practice participation, he's got a shot at playing Monday night. If the 24-year-old is unable to play in Philadelphia's wild-card affair, it would leave Kevin Byard as the only available safety on the team's active roster (barring any signings or practice squad elevations).

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Misses practice Thursday

    Blankenship (groin) did not participate at practice Thursday.

    Blankenship was forced out of Sunday's loss against the Giants by a groin injury, and that issue is now also holding him out of the Eagles' first practice of wild-card week. He'll probably need to practice in some capacity Friday or Saturday to have a chance to play Monday.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Will not return Week 18

    Blankenship will not return to Sunday's tilt against the Giants due to a groin injury, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    The seriousness of Blankenship's groin injury is not clear at this point in time. With Sydney Brown (knee) knocked out of the game, Tristin McCollum is the only other healthy safety to play alongside Kevin Byard at the moment.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Registers 11 tackles in loss

    Blankeship tallied 11 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 35-31 loss to the Cardinals.

    Blankenship was one of three Eagles defenders to finish with double-digit tackles Sunday. He played 69 snaps on defense, his most since Week 12 against the Bills when he played all 92 defensive snaps. Blankenship has 108 tackles (74 solo) over 14 games this season, which is the ninth-highest total among safeties in the league.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Clears concussion protocol

    Blankenship (concussion) does not have an injury designation heading into Monday's Week 15 game against Seattle, Tim McManus of reports.

    Blankenship was evaluated for a concussion during last Sunday's loss to Dallas and wasn't able to return to the game. However, he followed a limited practice Thursday with a full session both Friday and Saturday and has been able to clear the league's five-step concussion protocol. Consequently, Blankenship will be able to suit up on Monday Night Football against the Seahawks, and he'll presumably resume his every-down role.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Logs full practice Friday

    Blankenship (concussion) was a full participant in practice Friday.

    Blankenship exited last Sunday's game against Dallas and didn't return after being evaluated for a concussion. He hasn't yet passed through the league's five-step concussion protocol, but it's a good sign for his chances of playing Monday night that he followed Thursday's limited practice session with a full session Friday. Assuming he clears protocol in time, Blankenship should be set to resume his every-down role against the Seahawks on Monday Night Football.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Practices Thursday

    Blankenship (concussion) was a limited participant in practice Thursday.

    The safety suffered a concussion during the Eagles' Week 14 loss to the Cowboys and had to exit the game in the first half. Blankenship appears on track to return for Philadelphia's Week 15 matchup with the Seahawks. The second-year pro has 84 tackles, 10 passes defensed, two interceptions and a fumble recovery in 2023.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Getting tested for concussion

    Blankenship (head) is being evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

    Blankenship went to the medical tent following a tackle on tight end Jake Ferguson. Blankenship had three tackles before heading to the sideline and has been replaced by Sydney Brown.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Ruled out due to concussion

    Blankenship (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Dallas.

    Blankenship was evaluated for a concussion in the first half prior to being ruled out at halftime. He will have to pass the NFL's five-step concussion protocol before returning to game action. Blankenship will have one extra day to recover before the Eagles travel to Seattle for Monday Night Football in Week 15.

  • Eagles' Reed Blankenship: Posts double-digit tackle total

    Blankenship recorded 11 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 37-34 overtime win versus the Bills.

    Blakenship's tackle total was his best since Week 1 at New England (12), but it was somewhat predictable given he played a whopping 92 defensive snaps in Week 12. Either way, he's been a tackling machine as a defensive back for Philadelphia in his sophomore season, and he's a great IDP option at that position for Week 13 versus the 49ers.
