Recapping the Eagles' long laundry list of injuries this season

With the news that Philadelphia cornerback Ronald Darby is done for the season with a torn ACL, perhaps we should take a moment to recap the Eagles' injury carnage so far this season. Let's go position by position:


• Carson Wentz: Missed the first two games of the season as a result of the ACL and LCL he tore in December of 2017.

Running back

• Darren Sproles: Played Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons, but has missed the last eight games with a hamstring injury.

• Jay Ajayi: Tore his ACL against the Minnesota Vikings. He has missed five games already, and is done for the season.

• Corey Clement: Missed two games with a quad injury.

Wide receiver

• Alshon Jeffery: Missed the first three games of the season while recovering from rotator cuff surgery.

• Mike Wallace: Broke his fibula Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has missed seven games.

• Mack Hollins: A groin injury landed him on injured reserve just prior to Week 1. He has missed all nine games so far this season.

Tight end

• Richard Rodgers: Suffered a knee injury in the preseason that landed him on IR, just before Week 1. He has missed all nine games.

Offensive line

• Lane Johnson: Missed one game with an MCL sprain, has also played through a high ankle sprain.

• Jason Peters: Has played in every game, but he only played every snap in one of them, as he has battled through a torn bicep, a quad injury, and the effects of a torn ACL and MCL from last season, all at the age of 36.

• Jason Kelce: Has played in every game, but he is clearly playing hurt.

Defensive line

• Derek Barnett: Tore a rotator cuff, which he tried to play through initially, but eventually needed surgery to repair. He has missed three games so far, and is done for the season.

• Timmy Jernigan: Has missed all nine games this season after having surgery to repair a herniated disk.

• Haloti Ngata: Missed three games with a calf injury.


• Kamu Grugier-Hill: Suffered a thumb injury against the Jaguars that has not caused him to miss any time, but has affected his play, as a golden opportunity for a pick six against the Cowboys slipped through the club on his hand.

• Paul Worrilow: Tore his ACL in OTAs. He has missed every game, and is done for the season.

• Nate Gerry: Missed three games with knee and ankle injuries.


• Ronald Darby: Done for the season after tearing his ACL Sunday night.

• Sidney Jones: Missed three games (and possibly counting) with a hamstring injury.

• Jalen Mills: Missed a game (and possibly counting) with a foot injury.


• Rodney McLeod: Has missed six games so far with a torn MCL. He's done for the season.

• Corey Graham: Has missed three games with a hamstring injury.

• Chris Maragos: Has not yet recovered from a serious knee injury suffered last season against the Carolina Panthers. Has missed every game this season, and isn't expected to return.

Is that bad?
