Mills (foot) was arrested Saturday morning after a fight at a Washington D.C. nightclub, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
This doesn't sound like anything that would warrant a lengthy suspension, but it's a safe bet the NFL investigates the incident after Mills and Washington Wizards forward Devin Robinson both were arrested and charged with disorderly affray. The 25-year-old cornerback is hoping to bounce back from a season-ending foot injury in time for the start of training camp, now facing tough competition for snaps at a position group that also includes Ronald Darby (knee), Avonte Maddox, Cre'von LeBlanc, Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas.
Coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that Mills (foot) is targeting a fully recovery for training camp, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Mills will likely compete for a starting role in the Eagles' crowded secondary this offseason, which places increased significance on full participation in training camp. Entering the final year of his rookie contract, 2019 will likely act as a make-or-break campaign for Mills' future with the Eagles. Pederson also notably stated that the 24-year-old cornerback will not be moved to safety, according to Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger.
Mills (foot) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
The third-year cornerback's season will end after just eight games as Mills never made enough headway with a problematic foot injury to return to the field. With just one more year remaining on his rookie contract, 2019 will act as a make-or-break campaign for the 24-year-old, who has flashed at times as a versatile cover corner in the league.
Mills (foot) could miss the remainder of the season, Daniel Gallen of pennlive.com reports.
It has been a bit over a month since suffering the foot injury. If the Eagles feel hard-pressed for roster spots, perhaps they'll opt to move Mills to injured reserve. Philadelphia was optimistic that Mills would eventually return following the injury, but things haven't progressed in a timely manner. Either way, it seems as though Mills' 2018 campaign is nearing the finish line.
Mills (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys.
Mills hasn't played since before the Eagles' Week 9 bye. The LSU product was unable to practice at all this week. Mills has yet to log a practice in any capacity since injuring his foot Week 8 against the Jaguars. Sidney Jones will likely get the starting nod again.
