Ronald Darby exited to the Philadelphia Eagles locker room on a cart after taking his ankle gave due to a non-contact injury in the second-quarter.

The starting cornerback didn’t return in the Eagles’ 30-17 win on Sunday in Washington.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports the initial read on the injury is no no major ligament damage, meaning he could return in 4-6 weeks..

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was noncommittal today during his day-after presser, on the injury report regarding Darby.

“Well, this is something we’re going to gather a little bit more information on,” Pederson said at his press conference today. “We haven’t — talking with our doctors and [Director of Sports Medicine/Head Athletic Trainer Chris] Peduzzi, we need to get some more information on it before we make a full statement on it.”

According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the Eagles have discussed placing Darby on the IR, but are keeping all their options open.

Pederson indicated today that Rasul Douglas might be active next week, in place of Darby, but that it will be evaluated during this week of practice.

“Yeah, we’ll look at that this week, too,: Pederson explained. “We do have, obviously, Rasul sitting there and C.J., obviously. But we’ll look at it, talk with [Defensive coordinator Jim] Schwartz in the next couple days and have a plan. If he can’t go, then possibly Rasul.”

We’ll have more information on Darby’s injury as it comes it.
