The Eagles remained without cornerback Avonte Maddox in Saturday night’s win over the Giants, but head coach Nick Sirianni isn’t closing the door on the chances of a return against the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.

Maddox missed the last two games of the regular season with a toe injury and he did not practice at all last week. At a Monday press conference, Sirianni said the team would like to see that change in the coming days.

“We’ll see. We’re hopeful. But he’s still got to get out there and run on the field. There’s some unknowns there,” Sirianni said, via Josh Tolentino of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Maddox also had a stint on injured reserve after hurting his hamstring earlier this season and he was limited to a total of nine games in the regular season. He had 43 tackles, a sack, an interception, three forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery in those appearances.

  1. I honestly think they’re better without him and CJGJ in the slot. The kid Blankenship at safety is like the Brock Purdy of DBs. No media people are paying attention to how incredible this kid is playing. Undrafted too!

  2. Blankenship,,,,,, cmon man,,,,, dude was doing the muscle flex Saturday night ,only one problem ,no muscles !

  3. Reed Blankenship is not the answer. Maddox is a difference maker when he’s on the field. He’s just had a hard time staying on the field.
