Douglas could compete for a starting job in training camp, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Since being selected by the Eagles in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Douglas has appeared in 30 games with 12 starts while operating in a reserve role. The 23-year old has flashed whenever called upon, and injuries to Philadelphia's cornerback room in 2018 gave Douglas the opportunity to lead the unit in interceptions (three) and snaps. With Ronald Darby (knee) and Jalen Mills (foot) both nursing injuries, Douglas could potentially earn a starting role if he puts together an impressive training camp.
Douglas made just two solo tackles in Sunday's playoff loss to the Saints but finished the regular season with 58 tackles (48 solo), three interceptions and four passes defensed.
As injuries mounted up in the Eagles secondary, Douglas kept finding playing time and managed to lead the team's cornerbacks in snaps on the year while playing in all 18 games including the playoffs. He was also fourth on the team in tackles. With Ronald Darby set to walk this offseason, the 23-year-old should be in line to start again with Jalen Mills in 2019, but the duo will likely face competition from Avonte Maddox and Cre'von LeBlanc, who acquitted themselves nicely over the latter half of the season.
Douglas (ankle) returned to Sunday's divisional-round game against the Saints, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
Douglas was back on the sideline during the first half, but he didn't retake the field until after halftime. The 23-year-old should resume his usual starting role at cornerback if he can avoid aggravating the ankle issue.
Douglas is questionable to return to Sunday's divisional-round playoff game at New Orleans with an ankle injury, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
Douglas was able to return to the sideline after sustaining the injury during the first half, but he did not retake the field prior to halftime. Cre'von LeBlanc and Avonte Maddox will be heavily relied upon at cornerback should Douglas be unable to return, with Sidney Jones (hamstring) inactive Sunday.
Douglas recorded nine tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 32-30 win over the Texans.
Douglas continues to rack up tackles and has come on as a valuable IDP asset down the stretch. Since taking over at starting left cornerback in Week 13, the 24-year-old has 39 combined tackles, one pass defensed and one interception.
Douglas had 14 tackles (11 solo) in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams.
Douglas had 13 combined tackles for the season following Week 12, but has 30 tackles (26 solo) and an interception over the last three games. It's hard to imagine the 24-year-old continuing this level of production as a cornerback, but he's managed to stuff the stat sheet heading into the final weeks of the season.
Douglas had nine solo tackles and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.
Douglas almost added another interception in overtime, but instead the passed deflected off his hands to Amari Cooper, who trotted into the endzone for the game-winning touchdown. The 23-year-old and the Eagles defense will have a tall task in Week 15 as they head on the road to face the Rams.
Douglas racked up seven tackles (six solo) in the Eagles' 28-13 win over the Redskins on Monday.
Douglas was on the field for all 45 of the Eagles' defensive snaps and lead the team in tackles for the game. The 23-year-old cornerback could be busy again Sunday, as he will likely be tasked with slowing down Cowboys' wideout Amari Cooper in Week 14.
Douglas (knee) is active for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
With Jalen Mills (foot) and Sidney Jones (hamstring) inactive, Douglas will be the Eagles' top corner and will be tasked with slowing down Giants wideout Odell Beckham. Douglas has 11 tackles over the last two weeks, and he figures to have plenty of opportunities if Beckham receives double-digit targets for the ninth time this year.
Douglas (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants but is expected to play, NFL.com reports.
Per Pro Football Focus, Douglas has graded out as a below-average cornerback this season, but his likely availability nonetheless looms large for Philadelphia in light of its extensive injuries in the secondary. Fellow corners Jalen Mills (foot), Sidney Jones (hamstring) and Avonte Maddox (knee) have all been ruled out this weekend, likely leaving Douglas and a trio of relatively unproven commodities (Chandon Sullivan, Cre'von LeBlanc and De'Vante Bausby) to try and slow down the New York passing attack. None of those defensive backs currently profile as intriguing IDP options, but it wouldn't be a surprise if any of the four posted a useful tackle total in Week 12 by virtue of Giants quarterback Eli Manning choosing to target them frequently.
Douglas (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Douglas suffered a knee sprain in last Sunday's loss to the Saints but still has a chance to play Sunday. Fellow cornerbacks Jalen Mills (foot), Sidney Jones (hamstring) and Avonte Maddox (knee/ankle) have all already been ruled out, leaving the Eagles secondary dangerously thin.
Douglas (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Douglas continues to manage a knee sprain suffered during Sunday's loss to the Saints, leaving his status for the Week 12 tilt against the Giants in question. His potential absence this weekend would be costly with the Eagles already listing three other cornerbacks on their injury report.
Douglas suffered a knee sprain in Sunday's loss to the Saints and is considered day-to-day, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.
Douglas injured his knee in the fourth quarter Sunday, joining the flock of injured Eagles cornerbacks. The injury could sideline him for a bit, but he appears to have avoided a long-term issue. Look for Chandon Sullivan and Cre'Von LeBlanc to see some extra snaps as long as Douglas is limited or sidelined.
Douglas is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Saints due to a knee injury.
Douglas left the field during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Saints with a knee issue. If Douglas is unable to return, Chandon Sullivan, Cre'von LeBlanc and De'Vante Bausby will serve as the only fully healthy cornerbacks on Philadelphia's roster.
Douglas had eight tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Cowboys.
Douglas made his first start of the season Sunday with Jalen Mills (foot) and Sidney Jones (hamstring) inactive. Regardless of Mills' and Jones' health going forward, Douglas should be in line for a heavier role moving forward with Ronald Darby now lost for the season with a torn ACL.
Douglas is preparing to start Sunday against the Cowboys, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
With Jalen Mills still nursing a foot sprain and Sidney Jones (hamstring) also out, Douglas should get his first start of the season Sunday. The 23-year-old has only seen a meaningful number of snaps in two games this season, in Weeks 6 and 8, and has just two tackles (one solo), an interception and two passes defensed on the season. He should see plenty of chances to make plays Sunday, though, as Dallas likely has him pegged as a matchup to exploit.
Douglas, the Eagles' third-round selection, was on the field for the team's nickel formation in the first week of OTAs, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Returning starter Jalen Mills and offseason acquisition Patrick Robinson started in the base package, with Mills moving inside in the nickel and Douglas replacing him outside. The rookie apparently acquitted himself well, and if he continues to do so, he could easily move into the starting lineup if Robinson continues his injury-prone ways or underwhelms as he has up to now. Douglas could also face competition from Ron Brooks (quad) and 2017 second-round pick Sidney Jones (Achilles) once they recover from their injuries, however.
The Eagles selected Douglas in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 99th overall.
Douglas (6-foot-2, 209 pounds) is a huge corner who might lack the athleticism to stick at the position, but should give the Eagles a nice press corner if he can.
