RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-06-06

Slay (back) was spotted practicing at Thursday's minicamp session, Cayden Steele of reports.

The 33-year-old cornerback was carted off the field with a back injury during the Eagles' wild-card loss to the Buccaneers, but it now seems as if he's moved past the issue. Slay, a six-time Pro-Bowler, defended 14 passes, including two interceptions, in just 12 games last season. Now that Slay has returned to form, he's expected to serve as the Eagles' top corner once again in 2024.

Back injury not serious

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-17

Slay said Wednesday that his back injury isn't serious and he'll be sidelined for three weeks, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Slay was carted off the field late in Monday night's wild-card loss to the Bucs, but he's avoided a serious injury and should be good to go for a mostly normal offseason. The 33-year-old has two years left on a new contract he signed last offseason. He missed five games in 2023 while his play appeared to fall off some.

Carted off field in wild-card game

Slay injured his back in Monday's wild-card game against Tampa Bay and was carted off the field, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports.

The injury occurred while Slay attempted to make a tackle in the fourth quarter. He grabbed at his back and remained down for some time before being carted to the locker room. Slay had just come back from a different injury -- he missed the Eagles' final four games of the regular season due to a knee issue.

On track to play Monday

Slay (knee) was a full participant at practice Thursday.

Slay also said Thursday that his knee feels "a thousand times better" than it did before the surgery he underwent on it prior to Week 15, Tim McManus of reports. His availability should provide a huge boost to an Eagles defense preparing to square off against Mike Evans and Chris Godwin in Tampa Bay.

Won't play against Giants

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-05

Slay (knee) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Slay will sit out for his fourth consecutive game in Week 18 due to a knee injury. In his absence, rookie fourth-rounder Kelee Ringo will likely get more snaps on the boundaries Sunday.

Limited participant again

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-04

Slay (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice after also participating on a limited basis in Wednesday's walkthrough.

The cornerback had arthroscopic knee surgery in December and has missed the Eagles' last three games. Regarding his status for Sunday's regular season finale against the Giants, Slay said, "We'll see," per Olivia Reiner of The Philadelphia Inquirer. If the five-time Pro Bowler is again unable to suit up, Kelee Ringo, Eli Ricks and Bradley Roby could all see expanded action.

Estimated as limited Wednesday

Slay (knee) was deemed a limited participant in Wednesday's practice walkthrough.

Slay has sat out each of the Eagles' past three contests after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in mid-December. He was originally expected to return to action before the end of the regular season, but it's uncertain if he'll be able to do so, as Philadelphia's final game is Sunday against the Giants. Slay said Wednesday that there's a chance he could return for the contest, but it depends on how he does this week at practice, per John Clark of NBC 10 Philadelphia.

Won't play Week 17

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Slay (knee) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Slay was held out of practice all week as he continues to nurse a knee issue, so it's no surprise that the 32-year-old cornerback will be inactive for the third game in a row Sunday. With Slay missing the Week 17 affair, expect both Kelee Ringo and Bradley Roby to see increased snaps in the Eagles' secondary.

Considered unavailable Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-27

Slay (knee) was considered a non-participant at the Eagles' walkthrough Wednesday.

Slay has missed the last two contests while recovering from a procedure he underwent on his knee and he has now opened the week on the sidelines once again in Week 17. The cornerback will likely have to participate in some capacity at one of Philadelphia's final two practices this week in order to be available for Sunday's matchup with Arizona.
