When Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby discussed his recovery from a torn ACL in June, he said he is “going to be doing stuff in training camp.”

It appears practicing will not be on the list of things he’s doing when camp gets underway this week.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the expectation is that Darby will be placed on the physically unable to perform list by the team. That will leave him ineligible to practice, although that designation can be lifted at any point.

If it isn’t lifted and Darby is in need of more time, he could remain on the PUP list for at least the first six weeks of the regular season. Rapoport reports that’s not expected to be the case as the team believes he’ll be ready to go for their opener against Washington.

Darby started nine games last season before being injured. He had 43 tackles and an interception.

  1. Ugh… this is what I am worried about. I love my Eagles but our corners. After the Saints loss, Sean Payton came out and said that they game planned for Sidney Jones and went after him. Sadly, he’s probably our best corner.

    Our D line will need a LOT of pressure and sacks to cover up for our corners.

  2. The Eagles have a lot of depth at corner this year and a lot of young guys hungry for bigger roles. Darby is good player when healthy but he is at best a one year rental. He wouldn’t have been back this year without the injury killing his market.

    The best thing about last year’s crazy run of injuries was the young kids getting experience.

    Best possible scenario is for him to get healthy, young players step up, he shows he can still play and get’s traded
