Eagles Alonso (concussion), Murray (illness) out Thursday
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/6/15) Eagles standouts Kiko Alonso and DeMarco Murray were not on the practice field Thursday, as the former is dealing with a concussion and the latter an unspecified illiness, per the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The Eagles had an off-day Wednesday, so it is possible that Alonso injured himself during Tuesday's practice. Murray missed his second practice in four outings - he didn't participate in the training camp opener due to dehydration.
Eagles LB Kiko Alonso is doing 'everything' at OTA's
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/30/15) Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso has surprised everyone, himself included, by participating in organized team activities, per nfl.com.
Alonso, who tore his ACL in July, was participating without limitations at Eagles practice this week.
"I honestly didn't think I'd be doing this much," Alonso said. "I've just been going on how I feel, and it's feeling really good."
To put his recovery in perspective, Alonso tore his ACL two months prior to teammate Sam Bradford, who is still recovering and has been seen walking with a limp.
DeMeco Ryans likes improved Eagles' defense
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans likes the changes that the team has made to its defense in the offseason.
"We got better on the outside, which we struggled at last year,” Ryans said, per ESPN. “We had a lot of struggles there on the outside at the corner position, so I feel we've upgraded there with (Byron) Maxwell , a guy that you've seen make a lot of plays for the Seahawks. A guy like Kiko (Alonso), who his rookie year was a really outstanding player, up for defensive rookie of the year, a playmaker all over the field, and another guy in (Walter) Thurmond , who is expected to definitely push guys to be the starting corner on the other side. So I feel like we upgraded at a lot of positions, and I feel like it's really going to improve our defense."
LB Kiko Alonso on track for OTAs
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(3/26/15) Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso, who's coming back from surgery to fix a torn ACL, is on track to be ready for organized team activities, coach Chip Kelly told the Philadelphia Inquirer. Alonso suffered the injury last offseason and did not play in 2014.
Philly acquired Alonso as part of the LeSean McCoy trade. In 2013, Alonso had 159 tackles, four interceptions and two sacks for the Bills.
Report: Bills' Rex Ryan wanted to trade Kiko Alonso upon arrival
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/4/15) From his first day as the Bills head coach, Rex Ryan was looking to trade linebacker Kiko Alonso, according to a report from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
One of the first things Ryan wanted to do with the Bills, the report states, was trade Alonso. On Tuesday, CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora confirmed the Eagles and Bills had a plan in place to swap Alonso for running back LeSean McCoy. ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the story.
It's a strange revelation considering Alonso's stellar 2013 season as a rookie, when he totaled 159 tackles and four interceptions. However, he's coming off of an ACL tear that was sustained last offseason.
Without Alonso in 2014, the Bills were still able to finish fourth in the NFL in yards allowed per game at 312.2 per game.
|The Bills traded linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Eagles this offseason in the trade for LeSean McCoy, and Alonso is expected to start alongside Mychal Kendricks in his reunion with former Oregon coach Chip Kelly. Alonso missed the 2014 season with a torn ACL, but he was a star as a rookie in 2013 with 159 total tackles (87 solo) with two sacks, four interceptions, one forced fumble and four pass defenses. He has the upside to be a No. 1 linebacker in IDP leagues, but he's worth drafting as a No. 2 option with a mid-round pick.
