The Philadelphia Eagles announced Tuesday that they’ve placed LB Jordan Hicks on injured reserve.
This move was expected after Hicks, unfortunately, suffered a season-ending Achilles tendon rupture last week.
Philadelphia has already been working out linebackers, so you can expect them to make a move in the coming days.
Hicks was injured on the second play of the game while attempting to cover Redskins TE Vernon Davis. He was helped off the field and later carted to the locker room.
Hicks, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Eagles back in 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2,992,732 contract that included $652,732 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $729,000 for the 2018 season.
In 2017, Hicks appeared in seven games for the Eagles and recorded 28 tackles and a fumble recovery.
