The Philadelphia Eagles’ trade for pass-rushing dynamo Robert Quinn hasn’t gotten the results they were initially looking for.
According to reports, the Eagles will place Quinn on IR following the 32-year-old getting a knee scope for a twisted knee last Friday in practice.
Quinn was traded to the Eagles a week before the trade deadline from Chicago for a fourth-round pick. In five games for the Eagles, Quinn has not recorded a sack and has just two tackles. On the season, the former first-round pick has just one sack after an 18-sack year last season.
In 12 years with the Rams, Bears, and Dolphins, Robert Quinn has recorded 102 sacks while leading the league in tackles for loss and fumbles forced twice.
Quinn’s IR stint is yet another key role player that has suffered injuries over the last few weeks. Safety, Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Avonte Maddox, and Jordan Davis have all gone on IR over the last few weeks with their own injuries.
While there is optimism that the team will have Quinn back for the postseason run, they will have to move on with their current depth until then. Look for the Eagles to maximize on their current depth to fill in during Quinn’s absence.
