As a result, Maddox will miss at least the next four weeks. CB Josiah Scott will start in his place tonight.
In a corresponding move, the Eagles have called up rookie CB Mario Goodrich. Goodrich, out of Clemson, was one of 10 corners in last year’s draft class who played over 360 coverage snaps and allowed 0 TDs.
