[UPDATE]: Jordan Davis has officially been ruled out with an ankle injury, and will not return in Week 8 against the Steelers.
Eagles first-round pick Jordan Davis was slow to get up and had to be helped off the field with just over three minutes left in the first half on Sunday against the Steelers. The rookie was clearly in pain, and he couldn’t put weight on his right leg as he got to the sideline. Shortly after being evaluated in the medical tent, they brought out the cart to take him to the locker room.
Davis has played in at least 30 percent of the defensive snaps in each of the team’s first six games. Defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon was asked if they intended to increase his work load earlier in the season, but he’s been pretty consistent with Davis’ use and part of the defensive front rotation.
Coming out of the bye week, the Eagles had been relatively healthy. Hopefully Davis isn’t facing something that will keep him out for an extended period.
