It has been a long road back for Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso after he missed the 2014 regular season with a torn ACL, and his comeback might have to be put on hold. During the second quarter of a Week 2 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday in Philadelphia, Alonso was forced from the game with a left knee injury, and the team quickly ruled him out of the game.
#Eagles injury update: LB Kiko Alonso (left knee injury) will not return to #DALvsPHI.
The 2013 Defensive Rookie of the Year suffered the injury to the same knee that cost him last season with a torn ACL. It was not obvious which play caused the injury, but it’s never a good sign when a player is ruled out for the rest of the game immediately. Alonso came to the Eagles in a blockbuster offseason trade that sent star running back LeSean McCoy to Buffalo.
