Mychal Kendricks, Inside Linebacker
Mychal Kendricks is an absolute monster on the field, the only problem is that Mychal’s always on the sideline. The young stud inside linebacker hasn’t disappointed this season on the field, however it has been his lack of availability that has disappointed. Kendricks injured his hamstring week 2 against Dallas and has barely touched the field since. Kendricks tried coming back week 4 but re-aggrivated the injury and hasn’t played since and won’t play this coming Monday. The Philadelphia Eagles gave Kendricks a 4 year extension and was thought to be one of the young leaders to make a huge impact.
This hasn’t been the case so far this season, Mychal has always had an injury history. Kendricks missed 4 games last season because of a calf injury, and missed 2 games in 2013 with a knee injury. These little nagging injuries are becoming common with Kendricks. Fortunately for the Eagles, the team has gotten good play from veteran DeMeco Ryans, and stellar play from rookie Jordan Hicks. The team should be in no rush to get Kendricks back on the field because of the play of others, but Mychal really does make a difference when healthy which hasn’t been the case.
