Maxwell is slated to sign with the Eagles, reports.

With the Eagles having released Cary Williams last week and fellow starting cornerback Bradley Fletcher set to become a free agent, Maxwell fills a positional need for the team. Maxwell recorded 39 tackles and two picks in 13 games with the Seahawks last season, including 12 starts, while working opposite Richard Sherman.

Maxwell (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Maxwell is anxious to return to the field after being out for nearly a month with the injury. His return will help a Seattle secondary that will be without Kam Chancellor.

Maxwell (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Maxwell logged a limited practice Thursday and a full one Friday, so it looks like he might return Sunday. He'd be a welcome boost to the Seattle cornerback rotation.

Maxwell (calf) is out for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Maxwell was aiming to return to practice this week, but he wasn't quite able to make it. Hopefully his goal of returning to practice this week forecasts an ability to get back on the field following Sunday's game.

Maxwell (calf) could return to practice this week.

Maxwell suffered the injury during the team's loss to the Cowboys, and he did not play Sunday against St. Louis. If the veteran returns to practice this week, he stands a good chance to play against Carolina on Sunday. On the season, Maxwell has 26 tackles, one pick and five passes defended.

Maxwell (calf) is expected to miss one or two weeks after suffering a calf injury Sunday, reports.

Maxwell was initially feared to have suffered a serious ankle injury, but fortunately escaped such a setback. Instead, the cornerback is dealing with a calf injury that might just sideline him a couple weeks. If that proves true, Marcus Burnley is expected to start opposite Richard Sherman at cornerback for the Seahawks.

Maxwell suffered a calf injury during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, ESPN 710 Seattle reports.

Maxwell was initially thought to have suffered an ankle injury, but coach Pete Carroll deemed it a calf ailment Monday. Nonetheless, his health situation is worthwhile to monitor, since the Seahawks have already placed cornerback Jeremy Lane (groin) on their IR/designated to return list. Should Maxwell be forced to miss time, promoted nickel corner Marcus Burnley would figure to start opposite Richard Sherman, while DeShawn Shead fills Seattle's slot role.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said after Sunday's loss to the Cowboys that Maxwell may have suffered a high ankle sprain during the game.

Maxwell never returned to Sunday's contest after exiting around the five-minute mark of the second quarter. His absence left more playing time for nickel corner Marcus Burley and fellow defensive back DeShawn Shead. With CB Jeremy Lane (groin) already on IR/designated to return, the Seahawks have shaky depth at cornerback, despite their reputation for developing talent at the position. Maxwell had 25 tackles (22 solo), three passes defensed and an interception through his first four games, so Burley could make for a nice temporary IDP option, if the injury turns out to be serious.
