McLeod (knee) expects to be full-go for the start of training camp next month, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
McLeod participated in individual drills during this week's minicamp and appears very close to reaching a full recovery from last September's severe knee injury. When healthy, the soon-to-be 29-year-old is slated to serve as a key member of the Eagles secondary.
McLeod (knee) participated in individual drills at Monday's OTA, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
McLeod said in April he wouldn't be available for OTAs while he continues his recovery from the torn ACL and MCL he suffered in September, but his limited participation Monday is a good sign for his progression. The 28-year-old previously believed he would be ready to go for training camp and currently appears on track for that to hold true.
McLeod (knee) said Thursday that while he won't be available for OTAs next month, he could be available for training camp, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "[I'm] right on pace to come back for the start of the season," the veteran safety said.
McLeod tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee last September and will be about 10 months removed from surgery when training camp rolls around. Even if he is still operating under limitations at that point, there doesn't appear to be much fear that McLeod's recovery will drag into the regular season.
McLeod (knee) signed a re-worked contract with Philadelphia for the 2019 season, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
McLeod tore his ACL and MCL this past season and was likely to be cut if he didn't agree to a re-worked contract. The specifics of his deal are unclear, but he'll plan on playing for the Eagles for at least another year.
McLeod revealed he had surgery to repair a torn ACL along with a torn MCL in September, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
It was previously thought that McLeod only tore his MCL, and the addition of the ACL may extend the recovery time even further. McLeod wasn't going to return in 2018 anyway, and eyes were on next year for the Eagles' starting strong safety, who had 10 tackles and four pass breakups in the first four games. With Corey Graham nursing a hamstring injury, Malcolm Jenkins will start at strong safety for the time being.
The Eagles placed McLeod (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Chris McPherson of the team's official site reports.
McLeod went down last Sunday against the Colts and immediately clutched at his right knee, an injury that was confirmed to be a torn MCL on Thursday. Although his season isn't necessarily over, he'll embark upon a lengthy recovery and potentially be considered for activation from IR later this season. With McLeod out for the foreseeable future, the Eagles will turn over strong safety to Corey Graham.
McLeod was diagnosed Monday with a torn MCL in his knee and will require season-ending surgery, a league source told Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philadelphia.
McLeod has served as the Eagles' starting free safety for the last two seasons and change, accruing 148 tackles and six interceptions across 33 regular-season contests. The Eagles were hopeful that McLeod avoided a significant setback after being forced out of the Week 3 win over the Colts, but follow-up tests confirmed that the 28-year-old needed surgery. Expect Philadelphia to place McLeod on injured reserve in the near future, with the team perhaps using the open roster spot to upgrade its depth in the secondary. McLeod's injury will likely press Corey Graham into a starting role at safety alongside Malcolm Jenkins.
McLeod will get tests done on the knee injury he sustained during Sunday's 20-16 win over the Colts, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
McLeod said he felt okay after the game, which is certainly good news after what looked like a possibly serious injury. He had one assisted tackle and a pass defensed prior to his departure.
McLeod left Sunday's game against the Colts with a knee injury and is questionable to return, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
McLeod originally went down and grabbed his right knee but was able to walk gingerly off the field. In his absence, Corey Graham should see the majority of snaps at free safety.
McLeod finished the 2017 regular season with 54 tackles (39 solo), six passes defensed, and three interceptions across 14 games.
The tackle total was a career-low for the five year veteran, and it being the first time he failed to play all 16 games in a season doesn't fully explain the fall-off in production. The 27-year-old came on strong to finish the year at least, as he logged six or more tackles in four of his five final games (including the playoffs) after having made more than four tackles only once in the season's first 14 weeks. He will be back with the Eagles in 2018 and will remain a low-end IDP option.
McLeod (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
With little at stake for the Eagles in the regular-season finale, McLeod will be one of six regulars on defense who will be in street clothes. McLeod, who finishes the 2017 campaign with 54 tackles and three interceptions, will likely give way to Corey Graham at free safety.
McLeod recorded a season-high 11 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 34-29 triumph over the Giants.
McLeod's previous high in tackles this season was five in Week 13, so his performance Sunday was well above his normal expectation. The 27-year-old free safety saw all 88 defensive snaps and will presumably see another heavy workload in Week 16.
McLeod tallied his third pick in as many games during Sunday's win over the Cowboys.
McLeod has now recorded an interception in three consecutive games. The 27-year-old also added three tackles (two solo) on the day. He will look to keep his streak alive when the Eagles take on the Bears in Week 12.
McLeod recorded two tackles (one solo), an interception and a pass defensed in Sunday's 51-23 win over the Broncos.
The performance marks McLeod's fifth straight contest with a pass defensed and second in a row with an interception. The Virginia product played all but one defensive snap in this game and seems to be fully recovered from the hamstring injury that hampered him earlier in the season.
McLeod (hamstring) was listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
McLeod played all week at full speed so it's no surprise that he's playing Sunday. The veteran safety is listed as a starter, but he hasn't played many snaps since logging 63 in Week 1 against the Redskins. With only six tackles posted this season, it's hard to see him as an IDP threat at this time.
McLeod (hamstring) was a full participant all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphia reports.
It's odd that the Eagles haven't removed the injury tag after McLeod practiced all week, but it's likely precautionary in case of setbacks. The Chargers offense has been stagnant and turnover-prone, so expect McLeod to have a solid game with a chance to make some plays in coverage.
McLeod (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and is on track to play Sunday against the Chargers, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
McLeod missed the Week 3 matchup with the Giants, and his absence was obvious. Eli Manning threw three touchdowns, including a 77-yard pass to Sterling Shepard in blown coverage, as the Eagles barely scraped out a win. Although the Eagles will face a Chargers' offense that lacks a great receiving threat, McLeod's presence should still be felt.
McLeod (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Giants, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
McLeod joins fellow safeties Corey Graham (hamstring) and Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) on the inactive list this week, likely meaning Chris Maragos or Trae Elston, both third string safeties, will be forced into a starting role.
McLeod (hamstring) is considered a "long shot" to play Sunday against the Giants, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Eagles will check back in on McLeod's condition closer to game time before ruling him in or out for the Week 3 contest, but the safety's lack of practice time this week doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up this week. He was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, but was on the sideline for the entirety of the Eagles' sessions Wednesday and Thursday. With depth safeties Corey Graham (hamstring) and Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) already ruled out, special teamers Chris Maragos and Trae Elston could be thrust into prominent roles on defense if McLeod is in fact sidelined.
McLeod (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Friday and said afterward that he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Giants, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
Early reports suggested McLeod wasn't expected to play, but a Friday return to practice at least gives him some chance. Coming off an 83-tackle, three-interception 2016 campaign, McLeod has been quiet from an IDP perspective this season, but his presence nonetheless looms large for a banged-up Philadelphia secondary.
