Darius Slay Injured Late In Loss to Buccaneers

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay (back) was injured late in the fourth quarter in Monday night's wild-card loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and had to be carted to the locker room. Slay got bent awkwardly while trying to make a tackle and then grabbed at the right side of his back. He appeared to be in a lot of pain and could be dealing with a significant injury, but we may not know the extent of it until Monday after he undergoes more tests. The Eagles' season is now over anyway after the 32-9 loss, so Slay will have all offseason to heal up. The 33-year-old had missed the final four games of the regular season due to a knee issue. The five-time Pro Bowler only played 12 games in his fourth year in Philly and finished the regular season with 57 tackles (48 solo), two interceptions (one for a touchdown) and 14 passes defensed.

Darius Slay On Track To Play Monday

Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Darius Slay (knee) was a full participant during Thursday's practice. The stud defensive back recently underwent surgery on his knee prior to Week 15. However, it sounds like Slay is trending in the right direction ahead of Monday's Wild-Card matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His availability would provide this defense with a much-needed boost ahead of this game. There is still a few more days of practice, but Slay appears to be ready to go.

Darius Slay Out For Week 17

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay (knee) has been ruled out for a third consecutive game in Week 17 while tending to a knee injury. Slay had arthroscopic knee surgery ahead of Philadelphia's Week 15 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks and has avoided injured reserve since he was not expected to need four weeks to recover. During his absence the Eagles have allowed a total of 396 passing yards, though that was against Drew Lock and the combined efforts of Tommy Devito and Tyrod Taylor. Philadelphia's secondary has usually been one of the league's worst in 2023, and they will likely miss Slay's contributions against a stiffer opponent in Kyler Murray (illness) when they take on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

Darius Slay Has Surgery, Will Miss Monday Night Game

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay (knee) had arthroscopic knee surgery this week and will be out for the Monday night game in Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks, but he is expected to return by the end of the regular season, according to sources. It's a big-time loss for an already suspect Eagles secondary as they look to snap a their first two-game losing streak since the 2021 season. The 32-year-old five-time Pro Bowler has 57 tackles, 15 passes defensed and two interceptions this year. Slay's absence will be great news for Seahawks wideout DK Metcalf on Monday night. With Slay out this week, Bradley Roby will be pushed into more playing time as the Eagles look to slow down Seattle's passing attack.

Eagles Will Have Darius Slay, Jalen Carter Against Miami

Fantasy managers should probably be fading the Philadelphia Eagles defense/special teams unit in Week 7 as they face the highest-scoring offense in the NFL in the Miami Dolphins, but they will at least be getting both cornerback Darius Slay (knee) and rookie defensive tackle Jalen Carter (ankle) back after they missed the Week 6 loss to the New York Jets. Meanwhile, free safety Reed Blankenship (ribs) and cornerback Bradley Roby (shoulder) have been ruled out. Right tackle Lane Johnson (ankle) will also play on the offensive side of the ball for Philly. The returns of both Slay and Carter is big news for the Eagles as they look to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time since 2021.

Darius Slay Ruled Out For Week 6

Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Darius Slay (knee) has been officially ruled out for the Week 6 matchup against the New York Jets. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering Slay was unable to practice all week. He suffered a knee injury last week, so it appears the issue is still bothering him. The expectation is that either Bradley Roby or Josh Jobe will get the spot start at corner this week. The hope is that Slay will be able to return for the Week 7 matchup against the Miami Dolphins.

Darius Slay Signs Extension With Philadelphia

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay will remain with the team for a few more seasons, agreeing to a two-year, $42 million extension ($23 million guaranteed). There were talks the veteran would be on the way out of Philly. However, he is now committed to the franchise for the next three seasons. Slay finished the 2022-23 campaign with 55 total tackles and three interceptions, contributing to a potent Eagles defense. With James Bradberry also staying put, the Eagles defense should remain a top fantasy option in 2023-24.

Darius Slay Expected To Stay With Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles never officially released cornerback Darius Slay on Wednesday, and now one source said that the Pro Bowl cornerback is "expected to stay with the Eagles. It's not final, but that's the way it is looking right now." The two sides are likely working on a new deal that will also help the Eagles shed some more salary cap space for this year. Philly also brought back corner James Bradberry on Tuesday, and now it looks like they'll be keeping both of their star cornerbacks, which is a big win for their secondary. The 32-year-old Slay has been a Pro Bowler in five of the last six seasons, including the last two years with the Eagles. In 17 regular season starts in 2022, he had 55 tackles (40 solo), three interceptions and 14 passes defensed.

Eagles Plan To Release Darius Slay

The Philadelphia Eagles are planning to release cornerback Darius Slay, according to sources. The release comes after the Eagles tried to restructure his contract for the upcoming season. The 32-year-old five-time Pro Bowler will attract heavy attention on the open market as the top cornerback available now. He's made the Pro Bowl in five out of the last six seasons with both the Eagles and Detroit Lions, and he was also a first-team All-Pro back in 2017 with Detroit. In his three seasons with the Eagles, Slay recorded 133 solo tackles, seven tackles for loss, seven interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), 29 passes defensed and two fumble recoveries returned for touchdowns. The Eagles re-signed cornerback James Bradberry to a big deal on Tuesday.

Darius Slay To Seek A Trade

Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Darius Slay has been granted permission to seek a trade. The organization is still hopeful to get a deal done, but it seems likely that the two sides split this offseason. The release of Slay would with a dead cap hit of $21.265 million, but they could save $4 million with a pre-June 1st cut. The 32-year-old remains one of the better defensive backs in the league. He earned his second straight Pro Bowl selection this past season with a PFF pass coverage grade of 77.3. There should be plenty of trade partners for Slay if the Eagles do eventually move him.
