You can add another Eagle to the injured list. Another corner, in fact.

Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philly reported Sunday night that starting slot corner Cre’Von LeBlanc broke his finger in the Texans game. Almost no one noticed, however, because he kept playing.

It is not yet known whether he will end up on injured reserve or not, but the Eagles do have two other defenders playing with casts on broken fingers – Kamu Grugier-Hill and Nigel Bradham.

The injury did not appear to affect his play in this game, but it would certainly limit his ability to get an interception, though he has not registered one since 2016. If the Birds decide he needs to hit IR, DeVante Bausby will likely start in the slot with Chandon Sullivan being the back-up.
