Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Avonte Maddox is feared to have sustained a torn pectoral muscle in Thursday night's win against the Minnesota Vikings, ESPN reported.

Maddox, 27, is seeking a second opinion but his season likely would be over if the injury is confirmed.

He exited in the second quarter of the 34-28 win against the Vikings with what was 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).

--The Los Angeles Rams placed rookie defensive back Jason Taylor II on injured reserve Friday.

The seventh-round draft pick sustained a groin injury in Sunday's season-opening 30-13 win at Seattle.

Taylor, 23, played 16 snaps on special teams against the Seahawks.
