Rodney McLeod Out for the Season with Knee Injury
Eagles safety Rodney McLeod is out for the rest of the season with a torn MCL suffered in the third quarter of the Eagles win over the Colts on Sunday.
Coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday: "At this time, quite honestly, we're waiting on one more test result to come back, and I should have something later in the week, actually. I keep pushing it down the road, but that's the truth again."
Today we found out that McLeod will miss the rest of the season, and Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said the team will have to move on without him, like they have in the past.
"If he's available, we'll have him out there. If he's not, we'll have a Plan B. That does not just go for Rodney. That's sort of everybody. We'll have a plan for everybody if they can't play."
Last season, McLeod was a very important part of the Eagles Super Bowl winning defense, with 54 tackles, six passes defended and three interceptions. So far this season, McLeod has 10 total tackles and four passes defended.
