Eagles slot cornerback Avonte Maddox has been activated into the 21-day practice window for players on Injured Reserve, the team announced.
A hamstring injury put Maddox, considered a starter, on the shelf before the Eagles’ Week 10 game against the Washington Commanders, the first of four games he missed on IR.
Slot CB Avonte Maddox is trying to come back from a hamstring injury that put him on IR.
Reserve defensive back Josiah Scott has filled in for Maddox and has been targeted by opponents. Maddox has an interception and fumble recovery this season along with three passes broken up.
