Report: Rodney McLeod Done for the Year With a Torn MCL

Per Derrick Gunn:

Welp.

McLeod missed two games last year, one due to a hamstring injury and the other because it was the Cowboys in the meaningless regular season finale. He formed a strong backfield alongside Malcolm Jenkins and Corey Graham at times.

So with McLeod reportedly done, Jenkins, Graham, and Deiondre’ Hall are the only healthy safeties on the roster. Chris Maragos is still on the physically unable to perform list.

The Eagles could look at veteran options such as Mike Mitchell and former Eagles Quintin Demps or Nate Allen. Eric Reid just signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers, so cross that name off. Tre Sullivan and Asantay Brown are on the practice squad.

  1. Before the salary cap the back-ups were as good as the starters. That’s why the 49ers won so many titles.

  2. Some of these commentators are definitely the morbidly obese Josh Innissss and his dead-eyed GF. Get over the Cuz already
