Eagles safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson left Sunday night’s win with an injury and he’s on track to miss more time.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that Gardner-Johnson has been diagnosed with a lacerated kidney. The injury is not expected to end his season and Gardner-Johnson will not require surgery, but he is out indefinitely while undergoing further testing that will give a better idea of his timeline to return.

Gardner-Johnson joined the Eagles in a trade with the Saints in late August. He has 60 tackles, six interceptions, and a sack while starting every game this season.

Reed Blankenship stepped into the lineup after Gardner-Johnson left against the Packers. K'Von Wallace and Andre Chachere are also on the depth chart at safety.

  1. WOW! That was one heck of a hit he laid on Christian Watson! Wishing him a speedy recovery, and hoping Blankenship can continue to show why the Eagles kept him. No more roughing the passer penalties Reid!

  2. For a top rated team the Packers had no problem moving the ball against that over rated paper defense.

  3. Come back for the stretch run. Certainly will need him…not much faith in the rookie long term.

    Aaron Rodgers had about 100 yards passing before that defense eliminated him. Once the Eagles were up 2 scores in the fourth quarter the backup added some yards and points. Otherwise good story.
