Darby picked up his second pick of the season in Sunday's 34-29 triumph over the Giants.
Darby added five solo tackles and three passes defended to go along with his second interception of the season. The pick came midway through the second quarter. He returned it 37 yards before being taken down 20 yards short of the end zone. The 23-year-old participated in 84 defensive snaps (95.0 percent).
Darby made eight solo tackles, defensed two passes and intercepted another in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.
Darby played all 63 defensive snaps in his first game action since his ankle injury in Week 1, and he made quite the impression. The eight tackles were good enough for the team lead. The 23-year-old will have an enticing matchup against the Bears and rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky in Week 12.
Darby (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
This marks the first time Darby has practiced in full fashion since he dislocated his ankle in Week 1. Barring a setback over the final two days of practice this week, Darby should be good to go for Sunday's divisional matchup with the Cowboys, strengthening a pass defense that has been one of the few weaknesses for an 8-1 Eagles squad this season.
Darby (ankle) is set to play against the Cowboys on Sunday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Darby has been sidelined since suffering a dislocated ankle in the season opener, and has been a limited practice participant for the last three weeks. The Eagles opted to wait until after their Week 10 bye to bring back the 23-year-old, and is poised to make his return against Dez Bryant and the Cowboys on Sunday.
Darby has been sidelined since Week 1 with a dislocated right ankle, but it looks like another week of rehab and recovery could do the trick for the cornerback. The Eagles will likely update Darby's status once they resume practicing next week, but should he return, he's expected to slot in as Philadelphia's No. 1 cornerback.
