Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) has been designated as questionable for the Sunday game in Washington.
Kendricks logged full practices throughout the week, which would typically lead to a probable designation. He should be able to play, but between his 'questionable' tag and teammate DeMarco Murray 's surprise absence last week, it would be unwise to assume Kendricks will suit up.
If he does play, Kendricks should be assured of a three-down role, as Kiko Alonso (knee) has been ruled out.
Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso is expected to play again this season following a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews , Dan Hanzus of NFL.com reports.
During Andrews' evaluation, he scoped Alonso's knee to determine the extent of the damage to his left knee, according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News. Andrews found the ACL intact within that knee, but a return to the field won't be considered as Alonso takes the next month to rehab.
In the meantime, DeMeco Ryans , Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) and Jordan Hicks will handle the two inside linebacker spots.
Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso (knee) will not play Week 4 against the Washington Redskins , Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Alonso is in Florida being evaluated by Dr. James Andrews and will not practice nor play this week. It has not been decided whether Alonso will require surgery, but he will be held out Sunday for the second week in a row.
Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso 's (knee) status for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins is up in the air, according to the Eagles' official Twitter account.
Alonso wasn't in the building when the report first surfaced Tuesday, prompting some speculation that the 25-year-old may be ruled out of this week's game with an ACL sprain. However, Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis didn't want to lean in either direction.
With Alonso and Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) missing Sunday's contest against the New York Jets , rookie linebacker Jordan Hicks made a big impact, recording 10 tackles, one interception and recovering a fumble. He could potentially earn additional snaps with the starting group should Kendricks or Alonso miss more time.
Chip Kelly has announced that
His inability to practice Wednesday or Thursday was enough for Kelly to make a final call. Consider Alonso week-to-week going forward, but his history with knee injuries will likely spur the Eagles to err on the side of caution.
With Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) also in line to sit out in Week 3, Jordan Hicks would get the nod at inside linebacker next to DeMeco Ryans.
