CJ Gardner-Johnson Out Indefinitely With Lacerated Kidney
NFL Week 12 - Philadephia Eagles safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson will be out indefinitely after lacerating his kidney during Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers, according to a report from NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Further reporting from Pelissero notes that Gardner-Johnson's season is not over, and the safety is expected to return this season.
Philadelphia acquired Gardner-Johnson in a trade with the New Orleans Saints and has served as a major addition to the Eagles secondary this season. Gardner-Johnson currently leads the league in interceptions with six, leads all members of the Eagles secondary in tackles for loss, and was on pace for the second-most passes defended of his career. Philadelphia's -20.5% defensive passing DVOA is second only to the Dallas Cowboys.
