  • 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.

  • Eagles' Nakobe Dean: Ready to return

    Dean (foot) has been cleared to make his season debut in Sunday's matchup with the Jets, Tim McManus of reports.

    Dean logged a pair of limited practice sessions after being designated to return from IR before practicing in full Friday. He seemingly had no setbacks and now carries no injury designation ahead of Week 6. His return means he is ready to enter Philly's linebacker rotation, assuming he avoids any setbacks.

  • Eagles' Nakobe Dean: Limited in practice return

    Dean (foot) returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant.

    The Eagles designated Dean to return from injured reserve Tuesday, opening a 21-day window in which he can practice without being activated to the roster. He seemingly expects to be active much sooner than that, telling reporters Wednesday that he's almost back to 100 percent strength, Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. He opened the season as an intriguing IDP in a three-down role and could still make good on that promise at some point in October -- possibly as soon as this Sunday against the Jets.
