Jordan Davis Heads to Injured Reserve

  • Jordan Davis will be out at least four games after being placed on Injured Reserve Wednesday.The Eagles rookie defensive tackle suffered a high ankle sprain in last Sundays win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.He had played 19 snaps before the injury, which occurred with 3:20 left in the first half.By making the move now, Thursday nights game in Houston will count as one of the games he will mi s.Typically, a high ankle sprain is at least a four-to-six-week injury . Minnesota Vikings tight end Irv Smith, however, suffered a high ankle sprain last week and the timetable for his return has been reported as eight-to-10 weeks.Either way, Davis presence in the middle of the defensive line will be mi sed.He had 14 tackles in the first six games-plus, with one tackle for lo s and one pa s defensed.When asked earlier in the day what the Eagles would do, head coach Nick Sirianni chose not to reveal any plans.Still sorting through that, he said.
