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.
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.
