The Eagles have re-signed CB Ronald Darby for 1 year, $8.5 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That indicates Darby's November ACL tear greatly inhibited the free-agent market for the 25-year-old corner. If healthy, Darby will return as Philly's best cover man and present top-24 fantasy-DB potential. We'll watch his progress through the offseason before projecting him there, though.

Eagles CB Ronald Darby tore his right ACL in Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys and will miss the rest of the season. That comes at a particularly bad time for the veteran corner, who's set to hit unrestricted free agency in March. We'll see what it means for his market and 2019 outlook. The Philly defense, meanwhile, loses its top cover corner from a D that was already soft vs. the pass. Look for the Eagles to present 1 of the league's top passing matchups the rest of the way. Philly was down to Avonte Maddox and Rasul Douglas leading the CBs in Week 10, with Darby going down and Jalen Mills and Sidney Jones already out. We'll see what the lineup looks like heading into Week 11.

Eagles CB Ronald Darby is only expected to miss 4-6 weeks for the dislocated right ankle that knocked him out of Sunday's win over Washington. The injury looked nasty, but PhillyNews.com reports that the team's medical staff saw "only minor ligament damage" in his Monday MRI. We'll keep an eye on Darby's recovery for the sake of an intriguing Eagles team defense.

Eagles CB Ronald Darby just clearly fractured his right ankle against Washington. The foot was turned inward as he went to the ground while in coverage in the 2nd quarter. We'll obviously await official diagnosis, but it'll be a shocker if he's not done for the season. That'll be a big blow to the Philly secondary.

Bills CB Ronald Darby has cleared the league concussion protocol, according to the team website. That should put him on track to play Sunday against the Steelers after he missed the Week 13 trip to Oakland. We'll confirm his status during the week.

Bills CB Ronald Darby suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before playing Sunday at Oakland. We'll see about his status throughout the week. IDP owners should line up another option.
