Philadelphia Eagles star safety Rodney McLeod found out he’ll miss the rest of the 2020 NFL season with a torn ACL.

Rather than sulk, the Eagles safety decided to take part in a scheduled event for his charity titled, ’12 Days of Christmas’.

 

The event is a part of Rodney and Erika McLeod’s ‘Change Our Future’ foundation.

McLeod was recently announced as the Eagles nominee for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award presented by Nationwide.

Considered the league’s most prestigious honor, the award recognizes an NFL player for outstanding community service activities off the field, as well as excellence on the field.

With the COVID-19 pandemic having a deadly impact on the Philadelphia region and across the nation, Rodney and his wife, Erika, founded the Change Our Future Foundation.

The Foundation was designed to empower people through education, advocacy, and awareness in the areas of youth development, healthy lifestyles, and community enrichment.

McLeod had already established various signature campaigns and programs through his foundation and during Week 2, Rodney was named the NFL Players Associations’ Community MVP after distributing 40,000 pounds of fresh food to families through Philadelphia’s Share Food Program.

There were times, Rodney McLeod admits now, when he wasn’t sure “I had it in me” to recover from a torn ACL suffered in December 2020 in time to play during the 2021 Eagles season. The long hours of rehab that translated to mini-steps of recovery seemed like such a mountain to climb for McLeod, who had suffered the same injury in 2018 and also had come back from a rotator cuff injury a season later.
