Eagles Slot Corner Avonte Maddox Suffers Torn Pectoral Muscle


Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Avonte Maddox suffered a torn pectoral muscle during Thursday night’s win over the Minnesota Vikings, potentially ending his 2023 season, according to reports.

This could mark the second straight season that Moaddox misses time, leaving the team with two starters on the defensive side of the ball, with Nakobe Dean also out with a foot injury.

Maddox is a key part of the Eagles defense, playing the nickel corner spot, he recorded 43 tackles with an interception, a sack and three passes defensed in 2022, missing seven games due to various injuries, and he has played a full season only once in six NFL seasons.

It’s a big loss at an important position.

“That nickel position is a marquee position in this league,” Eagles defensive coordinator Sean Desai said at training camp. “There are so many confrontational issues created there.”

With Maddox down, the expectation is that backup Mario Goodrich could play a bigger role on defense. Other potential options could be Josh Job, who started at outside corner in place of James Bradberry on Thursday night, Kelee Ringo and Eli Ricks.

Another option could be to move Bradberry to the slot and use Jobe on the outside. In mid-August during training camp, the team gave Bradberry reps.

“We’re just trying to find different matchups, different roles. It’s about getting the best 11 on the field in different ways,” Desai said.

Well, they might have to try him in this position sooner than expected.
