Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby suffered a hamstring injury against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. He did not return for the duration of the game.

The severity of the injury has been unclear up to this point. But NFL Network's Ian Rapoport offers the latest on Darby's injury.

Not the update Eagles fans were hoping to hear. Through three games, Darby has 14 combined tackles and one interception. Since arriving in Philadelphia in 2015, Darby has started in 48 games. He has seven interceptions in those contests.

Considering Philadelphia's upcoming schedule, the Eagles are in a major hole. Not to mention the team is 1-2 to start the season. Over the next four weeks, they play the Packers, Jets, Vikings and Cowboys. Certainly not an easy lineup over the next four games.

The Eagles' injuries continue to mount up at an alarming rate. Leading up to their game against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, a staggering near-25% of the 53-man roster was listed on the injury report.

Injuries to key players like wide receiver Desean Jackson and defensive tackle Malik Jackson have certainly hampered the team's success. But the Eagles were just one play away from winning on Sunday. There's no doubt they'll put up a good fight with quarterback Carson Wentz leading the way.
