At the time this story was written and published, the Philadelphia Eagles are up by a 21-10 margin on the Pittsburgh Steelers. A.J. Brown has hauled in three touchdown receptions from Jalen Hurts. They celebrated by both stomping the yard and doing the electric slide. Everything is seemingly going Philly’s way. There’s just one issue. Rookie Jordan Davis has left the game due to an apparent leg injury.
Late in the second quarter, Davis was slow to get up and had to be helped off of the field seemingly as he was unable to put any weight on his right leg. After spending some time in the medical tent, he left on a cart.
Take a look.
Top draft choice Jordan Davis will be evaluated at halftime of the Eagles’ Week 8 game versus the Steelers.
We won’t speculate other than to say Jordan Davis is moving like he has a high ankle sprain. We aren’t doctors of course. We wouldn’t put any stock in our opinion, but fingers are crossed that this isn’t anything serious.
There was, unsurprisingly, no sign of him as the Eagles took the field for the second half. It appears that the 13th-overall selection will miss the remainder of Week 8’s game. Time will tell if he misses extended playing time, but in the meantime time, make sure you bookmark this one. We’ll let you know if there are any updates below.
Update: As expected, Jordan Davis has been ruled out of the remainder of Week 8’s game.
Update: The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Jeff McLane reports that Jordan Davis’ injury is indeed a high ankle sprain and that the rookie could miss 4-6 weeks. Let’s hope that he gets back to action sooner rather than later.
