  • Eagles' Nakobe Dean: Past foot issue

    Dean (foot) was a full participant in Eagles' OTAs on Wednesday, Brooks Kubena of The Athletic reports.

    Dean had an injury-riddled year last season, headlined by a foot issue that forced him to miss the final seven games of Philadelphia's 2023 campaign. Now that he's back and participating fully in the Eagles' OTAs, it seems as if he's moved past his foot injury. Across his two seasons in the NFL, Dean has appeared in 22 games and tallied 43 total tackles, including three tackles for loss, while playing 216 defensive snaps. The Georgia product is expected to be one of Philadelphia's top inside linebackers heading into the 2024 season.

  • Eagles' Nakobe Dean: Nearing return

    Dean (foot) said Thursday that he's been out of his walking boot since February, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

    Dean has been dealing with a foot injury that forced him to miss Philadelphia's final seven games last season, but it sounds like he could be returning to the field soon. Dean logged 30 total tackles, including 0.5 sacks throughout his five appearances in 2023, and the 23-year-old is expected to remain one of the Philadelphia's top inside linebackers once his recovery from Lisfranc surgery is complete.

  • Eagles' Nakobe Dean: Still in boot, could return by OTAs

    Dean said Wednesday that he still has three weeks left of wearing a walking boot after having Lisfranc surgery on his left foot, and it remains to be seen whether he will be healthy in time to participate in OTAs, Brooks Kubena of The Athletic reports.

    Dean didn't play after Week 10 due to the injury. Even if he isn't available by OTAs, the 2022 third-round draft pick should be healthy well before the start of the 2024 season. After playing primarily on special teams as a rookie, Dean started at linebacker in four of his five appearances in 2023.

  • Eagles' Nakobe Dean: Officially placed on IR

    Dean (foot) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

    The second-year linebacker out of Georgia was diagnosed with a Lisfranc sprain after leaving the Eagles' Week 10 win over the Cowboys, so it's no surprise that he's been placed on IR. Dean missed time earlier in the season with a foot issue, but he's started four of the five games that he's appeared in thus far, recording 30 total tackles, including a half-sack.Nicholas Morrow and Zach Cunningham are expected to see an uptick in work on Philadelphia's defense with Dean missing at least the next four games.

  • Eagles' Nakobe Dean: Likely to be placed on IR

    Dean (foot) was diagnosed Wednesday with a Lisfranc sprain and likely will be placed on injured reserve, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    The Eagles have no reason to rush placing Dean on IR heading into a bye week, as such a transaction would rule the linebacker out for at least the next four games. He's seeing a foot specialist to determine a course of action, with the most likely outcome being a stint on IR that would rule him out through Week 14. The second-year played has played 30 or more snaps in four of his five appearances this season, and he previously missed Weeks 2 through 5 with a foot injury. Nicholas Morrow and Zach Cunningham are left as Philadelphia's top off-ball linebackers.

  • Eagles' Nakobe Dean: Sustains foot injury

    Dean has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Dallas due to a foot injury.

    Dean missed the start of the 2023 campaign due to a foot injury but made his season debut in mid-October. He tallied three tackles (one solo), including half a sack, during Sunday's matchup but will be unavailable for most of the second half. The 2022 third-rounder will have additional time to recover since the Eagles have a Week 10 bye.
