Hicks only has one full season (2016) as a starter under his belt, when he recorded 85 tackles, 11 pass breakups and five interceptions. The 26-year-old followed that up with 28 tackles and no pass breakups or interceptions in seven games before a ruptured Achilles ended his 2017 campaign. That's the tale of two years, so it's tough to tell where Hicks should be rated in IDP formats until preseason games kick off.
Hicks (Achilles) has been able to participate in individual work during the first round of OTAs, Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice reports.
Hicks has made steady progress in his recovery from a ruptured Achilles this offseason. He should be operating at full capacity in time for training camp.
Hicks (Achilles) remains ahead of schedule in his recovery, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports. "It has been a very good rehab," the linebacker said. "It feels like since Day 1, I've been ahead of schedule. Doctors and training staff are pleased with where I'm at, just progressing every day, constantly trying to get stronger, trying to get my explosion back.
Hicks ruptured his right Achilles last October and wound up missing the final nine games of the 2017 season. While the 2015 third-round pick has been a productive asset when healthy, Hicks has been unavailable for at least half of the schedule in two of the past three years. Fortunately, there have only been positive reports on his recovery thus far and Hicks seems on track to start the 2018 season off on the right foot, as the linebacker is expected to be nearing full strength in time for training camp this summer.
Hicks (Achilles) said Tuesday that he's ahead of schedule in his rehab but wouldn't offer a timetable for his return to full activities, Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com reports.
Hicks was a spectator during the Eagles' run to the Super Bowl after rupturing his right Achilles' tendon in an Oct. 24 win over the Redskins. His absence for the second half of the campaign and the postseason opened up more reps in the middle for Dannell Ellerbe, but Hicks should take back the starting gig entering the 2018 season if his Achilles' tendon heals as expected. Though Hicks could be restricted when the Eagles reconvene for Organized Team Activities in May, Hicks should be close to full strength by the time training camp opens in the summer.
Hicks (Achilles) said Friday that he'll have the walking boot on his right foot removed around Christmastime and expects to be a full participant when training camp next summer, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Hicks ruptured his right Achilles' tendon in an Oct. 23 win over the Redskins, with the Eagles shutting him down for the season and moving him to injured reserve shortly thereafter. It appears Hicks has progressed well over the past two months following surgery and expects to require only 4-to-7 more months to fully recover. Unless he endures any serious setbacks in his recovery, Hicks will likely resume manning the middle linebacker spot for the Eagles in Week 1 of next season.
