Eagles rookie cornerback JaCorey Shepherd has torn ACL
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Eagles rookie cornerback JaCorey Shepherd has a torn ligament in his right knee that will likely end his season.
Shepherd was injured when he ran into Darren Sproles after a play near the sideline during Sunday’s practice at Lincoln Financial Field. An MRI on Monday confirmed he tore his ACL.
The sixth-round pick from Kansas saw action with the first unit at nickel cornerback. The Eagles are looking for a cornerback to take that starting spot after trading Brandon Boykin last week.
