Report: DeMeco Ryans more likely to play than Mychal Kendricks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans (groin) is more likely to play in Week 6 than position-mate Mychal Kendricks (calf), ESPN reports.

Kendricks prompted reports that he was practicing Tuesday after wearing his helmet to warmups, but he didn't participate much, if at all. "He didn't do anything," Ryans said. "He just wore his helmet today. That's a step forward. He got to warm up with the team today."

"I expect to [play Sunday]," Ryans said. "I'll see how I feel. [Skipping Tuesday was] just precautionary. I'll see how I progress throughout the week. From Sunday to today, I feel like I've made some strides. I'm feeling better. If it keeps going like it's going, by the end of the week I'm feeling good and hopefully I can go."

If neither linebacker can play Sunday, the team will be forced to go with Casey Matthews and Emmanuel Acho on most snaps.

DeMeco Ryans very active in Week 2 win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eagles DST generates a couple turnovers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) The Eagles DST forced two turnovers but got no sacks in Monday's 30-27 win in Indianapolis. Philly allowed the Colts' formerly dormant rushing game to pile up 169 yards on the ground.

Defensive end Fletcher Cox jarred the ball loose from running back Trent Richardson in the third quarter, linebacker DeMeco Ryans recovering. Safety Malcolm Jenkins intercepted Andrew Luck in the fourth quarter on a controversial play. Colts wideout T.Y. Hilton was clearly held on his route, leading to the pick.

Ryans finished with a game-high 10 tackles and one of the Eagles' three quarterback hits.

After failing to stop Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw, the Eagles DST will be hard-pressed to stop Redskins running back Alfred Morris in Week 3.


DeMeco Ryans 'isn't going anywhere'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) Some reports have surfaced speculating DeMeco Ryans might be released, but the Philadelphia Inquirer says the Eagles inside linebacker "isn't going anywhere." Ryans, scheduled to earn $6.8 million in 2014, probably won't even be asked to take a pay cut, the paper said.

"As much as they need Ryans lining the defense up and making stops against the run, they need his leadership perhaps even more," the paper continued. "Ryans commands the most respect in the Eagles locker room and 'forcing' him to take a pay cut would not go over well with the other players."

The Eagles play the Lions in Week 14. 


DeMeco Ryans takes small step back


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans, who recorded double-digit tackles in each of his previous two games, still led the team in that category Week 11 against the Redskins, but he had only seven, including five solo.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
