Jordan Hicks' season came to an end during the Eagles Week 9 win over the Cowboys.

Rookie ILB Jordan Hicks has been an absolute stud this season for the Philadelphia Eagles. As we wrote earlier, Hicks is an emerging star player who had the pivotal play of the game Sunday night in Dallas when he intercepted Matt Cassel and scored on a 67-yard pick-six.

Hicks' injury occurs at a time when Kiko Alonso and Mychal Kendricks are healthy, and DeMeco Ryans could be returning soon. Here was the play where Hicks got hurt. Hicks immediately motions to the sideline that he's not OK after tackling Cowboys WR Cole Beasley:

Chip Kelly dismissed the report. "That's not my understanding of it," said Kelly. "He's supposed to get an MRI this afternoon. I don't have any information from yesterday. They said he's going to get an MRI."
