Eagles' Ronald Darby: Practices as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday.

Darby has missed the last three games due to the hamstring injury but has a chance to make his return Week 7 at Dallas. The 25-year-old hadn't previously practiced since suffering the injury, so how he responds to the practice reps will dictate his status for Sunday.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Could play versus Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (hamstring) has a chance to play Sunday against the Cowboys, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

Darby's lingering hamstring injury has cause him to miss the previous three games. He's expected to increase his level of practice participation this week, and depending on how well he handles those practice reps, Darby could tentatively take the field against the Cowboys on Sunday. Jalen Mills (foot) also appears to be nearing a return.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Ruled out versus Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Vikings, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Darby will miss his third straight contest due to a lingering hamstring issue. A timetable for the starting cornerback's return remains undisclosed. On a bright note for Philadelphia's secondary, Sidney Jones is expected to retake the field versus Minnesota.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: On track to miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that Darby (hamstring) will be out for "a little while," Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Darby is nursing a hamstring injury picked up during Week 3's loss to the Lions. While an exact timetable for the starting cornerback's return remains undisclosed, it appears as though he's trending toward missing multiple games. With Sidney Jones (hamstring) day-to-day and Avonte Maddox (neck) week-to-week, Philadelphia's banged-up secondary could be a point of weakness for the Jets to try and exploit Sunday.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Ruled out for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (hamstring) is ruled out for Thursday's game against the Packers.

Darby is expected to miss multiple weeks as he works to recover from a hamstring injury. In his stead, expect Sidney Jones and Avonte Maddox to see increased snaps as the Eagles work to contain Green Bay's aerial attack.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Set to miss a few games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (hamstring) is expected to miss multiple games after having an MRI on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Darby suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's loss to the Lions and appears on track to miss significant time as he works to recover. The Eagles' secondary is already missing cornerbacks Jalen Millis (foot) and Cre'von LeBlanc (foot), leaving Rasul Douglas to play increased snaps on defense until Darby is able to return.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Won't return after injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (hamstring) won't return to Sunday's game versus the Lions.

Darby has been healthy through the first two games, but the injury woes have resurfaced. In his absence, Rasul Douglas will be relied on for a heavier role on defense, helping slow down Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Flying around in coverage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby registered three tackles, three pass breakups and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Darby missed the final seven games last season with a torn ACL, but he doesn't look like he's missed a beat with five pass breakups and an interception through two games. He appears to be the Eagles' No. 1 corner, so he'll be tasked with covering Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones in Week 3's game against the Lions.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Sheds injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (knee) is not listed on Wednsday's injury report.

Coming off an ACL injury suffered early last November, Darby worked his way back to participating in team drills mid-August and is now on track for Week 1 versus Washington. The 25-year-old cornerback will start opposite Sidney Jones and attempt to contain the Redskins' aerial attack.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Set to start Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Doug Pederson said Monday that Darby (knee) would start at corner opposite Sidney Jones in Sunday's Week 1 matchup with Washington, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Darby is seemingly still working his way back from a torn ACL suffered in early November last year, but it appears that Pederson has confidence in the fifth-year-pro's recovery. Darby was able to participate in team drills in mid-August. The 25-year-old's participation in practice this week will certainly be worth monitoring.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Sees team work Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (knee) participated in 11-on-11 drills sporting a knee brace during Sunday's practice, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Darby was able to make his first appearance of training camp in team work Sunday, after he was limited to individual drills to this point. The 24-year-old is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in early November last year, and is still hoping for a Week 1 return. The fact that he's back during team work is a step in the right direction, but a return for Week 1 might still be a bit optimistic at this point.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Participating in individual drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (knee) practiced during individual drills Thursday, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

Darby said that he would be back for team drills later in camp and that Thursday was about "just getting my feet back underneath me and working." The 24-year-old is recovering from a torn ACL suffered on Nov. 11 and is hoping to return Week 1, although a return sometime in mid-September might be more realistic given the nature of this injury. Regardless, fantasy owners should be cautious in determining Darby's fantasy value until he or the team can confirm a clean bill of health.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Staying optimistic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (knee) said he will participate in some capacity at training camp and is hoping to play Week 1 against Washington, Jimmy Kempski of The Philly Voice reports.

While keeping Week 1 in the timetable for Darby's return is certainly optimistic, there may be reason to believe he'll need more time. The 24-year-old tore his ACL on November 11, and if he takes the average amount of time to rehab -- roughly 10 months -- he would return sometime in mid-to-late September or early October, barring any setbacks. When healthy, Darby is certainly capable of managing a starting role, as proven by the 38 tackles (36 solo), 12 pass breakups and one interception through the first eight games of last season. Of course, caution should be exercised with respect to determining Darby's fantasy value until he can confirm a clean bill of health.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Looking good during minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (knee) participated in individual drills Tuesday, specifically cutting and pivoting, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Following a torn ACL last season, this is positive news considering his injury is one that could restrict cutting and lateral movement. Darby himself already said he expects to be ready for Week 1, and this news confirms that notion. The 25-year-old is expected to once again take over as the team's top corner after he made 43 tackles and one interception last season in just nine games.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Expects Week 1 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (knee) said Wednesday that he's optimistic about his chances of returning to full activity at some point during training camp, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The 25-year-old previously mentioned in March that he expects to be ready for Week 1, and it doesn't sound like his tune has changed over the subsequent two and a half months. The cornerback is rehabbing the torn ACL he suffered last November but seems to be making steady progress after he was spotted on the field Wednesday.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Returns to field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (knee) was spotted on the field in advance of Wednesday's practice, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Darby isn't expected to do much in practice, but it's nonetheless a highly encouraging sign as the 25-year-old works his way back from the torn ACL he suffered just under seven months ago. The Eagles' main goal has always been for Darby to be ready for Week 1, but it now looks possible that he could be in the fold well before September.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Expects to be healthy for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (knee) expressed optimism regarding his chances of being ready for Week 1 of the 2019 season, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Darby tore his ACL on Nov. 11, so a return in Week 1 would be relatively quick. He recently re-signed with the Eagles on a one-year contract. While he was the team's top cornerback prior to the injury, it may take him some time to fully get back to his old self. More clarity on his role entering the season will come once training camp kicks off.

Ronald Darby: Staying with Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (knee) is signing a one-year contract to stay with the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Darby was the top cornerback in Philadelphia prior to suffering a torn ACL on Nov. 11. The team subsequently had a number of players emerge as viable options at the position, but none compares to Darby in terms of proven track record as a solid starter. The depth should allow him to approach his rehab in a conservative manner, potentially opening 2019 on the PUP list. Darby will have no problem finding a lucrative multi-year contract next offseason if he looks like his old self once he's healthy.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Likely to test open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (knee) is expected to test free agency in March, NJ.com's Mike Kay reports.

Darby is no lock to be ready for Week 1 after suffering a torn ACL on Nov. 11, but he nonetheless profiles as one of the top cornerbacks in a weak free-agent class, having celebrated his 25th birthday in January. He likely will find a new home on the open market, as Philadelphia has solid cornerback depth with Jalen Mills, Rasul Douglas, Avonte Maddox, Cre'Von LeBlanc and Sidney Jones all under contract for at least one more season. It would come as a surprise if Darby had serious contract discussions with the Eagles prior to free agency.

Eagles' Ronald Darby: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darby (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Darby suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Cowboys. The Florida State product entered 2018 on the final year of his rookie contract, and will either re-sign with the Eagles or test free agency in March. In a corresponding move, the Eagles activated fellow cornerback De'Vante Bausby from the practice squad to the active roster.
