Darby was a 16-game starter in 2020, recording 55 tackles (43 solo), 16 pass defenses and a fumble recovery on 1,001 defensive snaps.
Darby was fifth in the league in PDs, yet didn't record a single interception. PFF graded him at No. 31 out of 122 qualified cornerbacks, 13 spots ahead of teammate Kendall Fuller. Washington more than got its money's worth on a one-year, $3 million contract, so it'll likely be far more expensive if the team wants to keep Darby around for 2021 and beyond. Granted, other franchises may have some concerns about his medical history, as the 27-year-old cornerback played just 28 games in his three seasons (2017-19) with the division-rival Eagles.
Darby (illness) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
Darby missed Wednesday's practice session with a non-COVID-19 related illness, so the fact that he returned so quickly is a positive sign. Now that the veteran appears healthy, he'll assume his usual starting role at cornerback, tasked with slowing down the dangerous Dallas receiving corps Sunday.
Darby (illness) didn't practice Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN NFL Nation reports.
Darby will hope to feel better as the week progresses, as his status come Sunday will be key against a Dallas receiving corps that features the fearsome trio of Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb. If the cornerback's able to return to practice in the coming days, there's a good chance that he'll be able to play.
Darby (hip) inked a one-year, $4 million deal with the Redskins on Sunday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Darby battled injuries for the Eagles last season, suiting up in 11 games as a starter, racking up 37 tackles (34 solo), two interceptions and 11 pass breakups. The 26-year-old missed the final two games of 2019 with a hip strain, and his timetable to return remains unclear. New head coach Ron Rivera has long been a fan of Darby, so he likely will battle for the starting cornerback spot that was vacated when the team traded Quinton Dunbar (hamstring) to Seattle.
Darby (hip) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Darby was already scheduled to miss a few weeks after aggravating the hip strain he originally suffered Week 15. His season is now over as he won't be eligible to return for the playoffs.

Coach Doug Pederson said Monday that Darby (hip) will be sidelined Week 17, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The 25-year-old sustained the hip injury last week against the Redskins and aggravated the injury during Sunday's win over the Cowboys. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Darby is dealing with a hip strain and is expected to miss a few weeks. Rasul Douglas will step into the starting role at cornerback for Philadelphia.
Darby (hip) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Darby first picked up the hip injury when he exited last week's game against Washington and looks to have aggravated it Sunday. He walked to the locker room under his own power to receive extra treatment, however, which was a positive sign for the injury. As long as Darby is sidelined, Rasul Douglas and Avonte Maddox would be in line to see an increased snap count.
Darby (hip) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Dallas.
Darby upgraded to a full practice Friday after two limited sessions this week. His return will boost the Eagles' secondary with the NFC East title on the line.

Darby came out of Sunday's win over the Redskins with "lower body issues" per coach Doug Pederson, but the injury report indicates he's dealing with a hip flexor injury. Regardless, the 25-year-old's limited participation to start the week is a good sign for his Week 16 availability.
Coach Doug Pederson said Monday that Darby is nursing "lower body issues," Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
Darby exited Sunday's win over Washington in the third quarter for reasons that appear to have been related to injury. He was initially listed as questionable for the contest due to a hip flexor issue.

Darby (hip) is expected to play Sunday at Washington, Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Darby was a late addition to the injury report this week and is considered questionable, but it appears he'll be able to suit up Sunday.

Darby (hip) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt in Washington.
Darby was limited in Friday's practice due to a hip flexor injury. The 25-year-old appears to be trending toward availability for Sunday's game against the Redskins, but if he were limited or forced to miss any time, Avonte Maddox and Rasul Douglas would likely see increased snaps on defense.
Darby posted three solo tackles, a pass breakup and an interception in Sunday's 37-31 win over the Dolphins.
Darby had a difficult time covering DeVante Parker in this contest, which lines up with his course for the season, as he's allowed 8.1 yards per target compared to 6.4 last year. However, the 25-year-old still managed to notch his first interception since Week 2. Darby will look to add another against Daniel Jones and the Giants in Week 14.
Darby (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game at Dallas.
Darby will make his return after missing three weeks with the injury. He should provide a big boost to a banged-up Eagles defense.
Darby (hamstring) is considered questionable for Sunday's game at Dallas.
Darby sat out the last three games with the hamstring injury but practiced as a limited participant this week and appears to have a decent chance of returning to action. The Eagles could use the boost at cornerback with Avonte Maddox (concussion/neck) still sidelined.
Darby (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday.
Darby has missed the last three games due to the hamstring injury but has a chance to make his return Week 7 at Dallas. The 25-year-old hadn't previously practiced since suffering the injury, so how he responds to the practice reps will dictate his status for Sunday.
Darby (hamstring) has a chance to play Sunday against the Cowboys, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
Darby's lingering hamstring injury has cause him to miss the previous three games. He's expected to increase his level of practice participation this week, and depending on how well he handles those practice reps, Darby could tentatively take the field against the Cowboys on Sunday. Jalen Mills (foot) also appears to be nearing a return.
Darby (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Vikings, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that Darby (hamstring) will be out for "a little while," Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
Darby is nursing a hamstring injury picked up during Week 3's loss to the Lions. While an exact timetable for the starting cornerback's return remains undisclosed, it appears as though he's trending toward missing multiple games. With Sidney Jones (hamstring) day-to-day and Avonte Maddox (neck) week-to-week, Philadelphia's banged-up secondary could be a point of weakness for the Jets to try and exploit Sunday.
