According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Eagles DT Jordan Davis is set to miss up to 6 weeks after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Sunday’s win over the Steelers.
The rookie lineman picked up the injury in the second quarter. Nick Sirianni and a few of Jordan’s teammate rushed to his side to see if he was okay, before the Georgia product was helped to the blue tent.
Davis has gradually been eased into the thick of things during his rookie season. He has 12 tackles through 6 games but has been absolutely monstrous against the run. With Davis off the field, the team is allowing 5 yards per carry to its opponents. With him on the field, that number drops down close to 3.
If we assume that Jordan Davis will miss the full six weeks, that means he’ll be back in time for a clash with the Giants and the final 5 games of the year. In his place, expect versatile sophomore product Milton Williams to get some additional snaps. He recorded a sack today in place of Davis and brings a very different skillset to the table. It will be interesting to see how Jonathan Gannon shakes up his D-line moving forward.
The main thing here is that Jordan Davis is okay and that the injury isn’t season-ending. Here’s to a quick and healthy recovery!
