Darby recorded eight solo tackles and an interception in Sunday's 27-21 loss to Tampa Bay.
Darby intercepted a deep Ryan Fitzpatrick pass to O.J. Howard with seconds remaining in the first quarter and returned it 16 yards. Again charged with covering an elite receiver in Mike Evans, the 24-year-old racked up the tackles in an effort to contain the wideout. He should be a top cornerback play in his Week 3 matchup with Indianapolis.
Darby recorded six tackles (five solo) and defensed three passes in Thursday's 18-12 defeat of Atlanta.
Darby also had a tackle-for-loss when he stuffed Tevin Coleman in three yards in the backfield early in the first quarter. Much of the day, however, the 24-year-old had the unenviable task of covering Julio Jones, allowing the Florida State product to rack up hefty counting stats of his own. As long as Darby is healthy, he should be one of the better playmakers at the corner position in IDP leagues.
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.
