LB Jordan Hicks injured his hand on his honeymoon
- According to the Philly Voice, Eagles linebacker Jordan Hicks injured his hand on his honeymoon in Greece this week.
- Hicks had a strong year quarterbacking Philadelphia’s defense in 2016. He was our fifth highest graded inside linebacker out of 59 qualifiers (88.0 overall) and his 91.7 coverage ranked second.
- The young defender led his position in interceptions (five) and coverage snaps per reception (21.1), while also averaging the lowest yards per coverage snap (0.39).
- The injury is said to be minor, but Hicks is one of the Eagles’ primary building blocks on defense. He could open training camp on the Non-Football Injury list if tests reveal a multi-week injury.
