NFL: DEC 13 Saints at Eagles

The Eagles will be without their top cornerback tomorrow against the Cardinals.

Philadelphia cornerback Darius Slay did not make the trip to Arizona because of a concussion, the team announced. With starting cornerback Avonte Maddox also out with a knee injury, the Eagles are severely shorthanded at the position, and Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins may be poised for a very big day.

The Eagles also ruled out two special teams contributors, Grayland Arnold (hamstring) and Jason Huntley (illness).

Philadelphia is still in contention in the terrible NFC East, but Sunday’s game is a must-win, and it won’t be an easy game to win at less than 100 percent health.

  1. Man that stinks. Top corner out and that means Murry is going to throw. The next man up better step up.

  2. Murray and Arizona’s receivers are going to tear the Eagles secondary up in the passing game tomorrow, Murray is fixing to GO OFF TMRW that’s for sure. You can take that to the bank.

  3. McCleod, Maddox and now Slay ? What is it about the eagles secondary that always has them putting out a mash unit by the end of every season ?

  4. Not suggesting the Eagles should tank, but not wanting to see a hollow NFC East Championship.

  5. What a horrible trade by Philly to take on an overpaid CB primadonna CB like that, lose the draft picks, and see an aging team into a lowered cap.

    They need picks to start the rebuild they have been avoiding. lol
