Philadelphia Eagles Rule Out Cornerback For Saturday's Game

A tough loss for the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Eagles have ruled out cornerback Avonte Maddox for Saturday's game against the New York Giants.

Maddox suffered a toe injury during the team's Week 16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, forcing him to miss the final two games of the regular season. The Eagles had a week off during the wild-card round as the No. 1 seed in the NFC, but it clearly wasn't enough time for Maddox to get healthy in time.

In his absence, C.J. Gardner-Johnson should slot in at nickel corner.

In 10 games this season, the twenty-six-year-old Maddox had 43 total tackles, one sack, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one interception and three passes defended.
