The Philadelphia Eagles moved to 10-1 with their 40-33 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, but they did suffer a loss in the win. Defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson was carted to the locker room in the first quarter with what was described as a rib injury at the time, but further testing showed something else.

Gardner-Johnson suffered a lacerated kidney in Week 12, and is out indefinitely, per NFL Media. This is reportedly a non-surgical injury, and testing is ongoing. However, he is expected back at some point this season. 

In 11 games played for the Eagles this season, Gardner-Johnson has recorded 60 combined tackles, one sack, eight passes defensed and a league-leading six interceptions. He has been very much worth the fifth- and sixth-round picks the Eagles sent the New Orleans Saints back in August for his services. The Florida product has made himself some money with his play this year, as Gardner-Johnson is set to become a free agent this offseason. 

Philly's No. 2-ranked defense won't be the same
