Reports have surfaced that young Eagles linebacker Travis Long has unfortunately suffered yet another ACL injury in this years Training Camp.
The injury has been confirmed as season ending and it’s become a reoccurring issue. This is the second year running in which Long has torn the same ACL in his right knee.
Kelly had said last year that Long would have made the roster had it not been for the injury. You have to really feel for the up and coming talent ad he suffers yet another setback.
However, this does aid the causes of the likes of Marcus Smith. The Eagles top pick in 2014 is now competing for a spot very thin on talent, and now an extra man down. Emmanuel Acho and Najee Goode will also be vying hard to make the team in what’s now become quite an alarming situation for the Eagles.
