Ronald Darby is “Probably Going to Miss Some Time”

James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

Ronald Darby came out of Sunday’s game with a hip flexor injury and doesn’t seem likely to play in the immediate future.

That’s the gist from Doug Pederson’s day-after press conference, with the injury questions being answered like this:

There’s some other injuries to account for; T Lane Johnson, the two corners, Ronald Darby, Jalen Mills, WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, what can you tell us? (Tim McManus)

DOUG PEDERSON: Lane is improving. He’s more day-to-day. We’ll see. We have to get him on land, we have to get him to run and see where he’s at with the ankle but he’s improving. J.J., actually, I’m waiting on. He’s going to have another test result tomorrow but should be fine. Nothing too serious there, I would expect.

Darby is the one that’s going to probably — he’s a little more significant and probably going to miss some time. Darby’s is a little bit more serious and his will — he’s probably going to miss some time.

Mills?(Tim McManus)

DOUG PEDERSON: Mills, his ankle, and tough guy, tough kid. Ended up finishing the game obviously, but he’s going to be day-to-day. Right now, he’s hurting today but we’ll see as the week goes on and progress him.

Pederson went on to say that Rasul Douglas would get the nod with Darby unable to play. No time frame obviously with Darby, but saying it’s “a little bit more serious” seems to suggest that he won’t be back until the postseason, if the Eagles clinch on Sunday.

  1. Knowing Darby, he wasn’t tracking time very well and time sailed right over his head.

      1. Ah, yes, the guy with 18 interceptions in 7 years as an Eagle has “zero ball skills.”

        1. If he was so crazy good, they wouldn’t’ve brought Asante Samuel in to replace him his last year here. He was also drafted to return punts but he failed miserably at it. Total pussy tackler too. Sheldon was the more complete player by far.

  2. Hes one of the many who got paid and does not want to be here along with the following


    This team got noticebley better when they removed the crap

      1. but he’s honestly nothing more than an average starting defensive end – when he’s healthy. He’s not a bust, but I think it’s fair to say he has been a disappointment. When you draft a guy at 14th overall, you’re expecting a guy that will impact the game in a way like Fletcher (who was taken 12th overall). He should be a double-digit sack threat every year. But he isn’t. And worst of all, he can’t seem to stay on the field for a whole season.

  3. Rasul Douglas stepping in for Darby? I’d take Maddox over him straight up. Might even give Jones another shot. But all Douglas does is get beat deep time after time because he’s too slow to be a CB in this league. SMH
