UPDATE: The Hicks injury was worse than expected. The team has officially placed him on injured reserve, which means his season is over.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie linebacker Jordan Hicks is not believed to have suffered a season-ending injury, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport. While nothing is official yet, this is a good early sign for both the player and the team.
Based on preliminary results, good news for #Eagles standout LB Jordan Hicks, who injured his pec. Belief is just a 2-4 week injury. MRI now— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 9, 2015
Hicks suffered a pectoral injury late during the Eagles' victory over the Cowboys on Sunday night. Hicks got hurt while making a tackle on Dallas receiver Cole Beasley.
After the game, Hicks told reporters he felt good. That seems like a positive sign, but it will be interesting to see what the MRI results reveal.
Despite being a rookie, Hicks has been such a stud for the Eagles this season. He's been making a strong case to earn the Defensive Rookie of the Year award. Losing Hicks for a few games is certainly bad news, but the team will at least be glad they're not losing him for the rest of the season.
