Report: Eagles CB Avonte Maddox (pec) set for surgery

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Avonte Maddox will have surgery this week for a torn pectoral muscle and is potentially out for the season, NFL Network reported Monday.

Maddox, 27, was injured during Thursday night’s win against the Minnesota Vikings.

MRI results and additional medical opinions confirmed that surgery was the best course of action, per the report.

Maddox exited in the second quarter of the 34-28 win against the Vikings with what was initially called a shoulder injury after posting two tackles and forcing a fumble.

Maddox is in his sixth season with the Eagles, who drafted him in the fourth round in 2018. He has recorded 246 tackles, eight forced fumbles and four interceptions in 62 games (37 starts).
