Kendricks posted 77 total tackles (55 solo), two sacks and six passes defensed across 15 games during the 2017 regular season.
Kendricks' defensive snap count jumped back up to 2015 levels, and accordingly he came just shy of his statistical output from that same season. The 27-year-old was on the field sparingly through the first few weeks of 2017, but his 17-tackle game Week 6 at Carolina ensured that his per-game snap count would almost double thereafter. Despite the increased opportunity, he was never able to rack up tackles consistently and only averaged five per game from Weeks 8-16. The California product's contract status makes him a constant subject of trade rumors, but if he is back in Philadelphia in 2018, similar production can be expected.
Kendricks (foot) is active for Monday's contest against the Raiders, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
Kendricks followed a limited/full/full practice regimen this week but still received a questionable designation for this contest. Given the all-clear to play Week 16, the weakside linebacker will seek out a fruitful outing versus Oakland's 22nd-ranked offense.
Kendricks has drawn a questionable designation ahead of Monday's game against the Raiders due to a foot injury, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Kendricks was absent from the injury report throughout the week, so it is unclear when he picked up the injury. Kamu Grugier-Hill would likely fill in at weakside linebacker should he ultimately sit out. Final confirmation on his status is unlikely until closer to kickoff Monday.
Kendricks' tackle total tied his second highest output on the season. All of his production came across 61 defensive snaps (69.0 percent). The 27-year-old outside linebacker will look to carry his momentum into the Eagles' Week 16 matchup versus the Raiders.
Kendricks made nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.
The tackle total was his highest since Week 6 at Carolina, and he hadn't exceeded four in any of his previous three contests. He is not a recommended IDP option in Week 14 against a Rams offense that does not give up many points to linebackers.
