Eagles CB Avonte Maddox gives update after being stretchered off field

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Avonte Maddox says "everything is going well" after he was stretchered off the field during Thursday night's game against the Green Bay Packers. 

Maddox was involved in a scary situation when he and teammate Andrew Sendejo collided while attempting to tackle Packers tight end Robert Tonyan. The cornerback immediately went limp and remained motionless on the field for several minutes while Philadelphia's medical team rushed to his aid. 

After the game, which the Eagles won 34-27, the team posted an update on Maddox, saying he had "movement in all extremities" and was being sent to the hospital as a precaution.
