The 30-year-old had 39 tackles entering Sunday's game.
He's been with the Eagles since the team traded for him before the 2012 season. Ryans will likely be replaced by Casey Matthews or Emmanuel Acho.
• MURPHY: Healthy again, Maclin headed for career year Eagles quarterback Nick Foles also was injured Sunday, with the team reportedly fearing he broke his collarbone.
Even the players themselves seem not to have known exactly how good they actually were until different parts of the regular season.
For linebacker Mychal Kendricks, it was relatively early.
The injury Ryans suffered as an Eagle in 2014 wasn’t the first time he hurt himself playing on that field.
According to the Inquirer’s Jeff Mc Lane, Ryans ruptured his left Achilles four years earlier in the same way (non-contact) and at the same spot (near the 10-yard line in the north end) at NRG Stadium.
That system was eliminated in 2015, in favor of the field-turf surface now in place.
Ryans' lawsuit alleges that it took Clowney's injury for the team to finally address the problem.
I love everything he's stood for in the organization. But sometimes you just have to cut those ties and move on." Hicks, whose season ended in November with a torn pectoral muscle, is expected to return for the offseason program. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do this spring." Fletcher Cox has one year left on his contract, and the Eagles are committed to signing him to an extension.
Pederson said Hicks was ready to become a full-time starter. "It's a huge priority for us to keep Fletcher Cox," Roseman said. We've been very fortunate to get [six] contracts done.
The linebacker intercepted a pass from Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and injured himself on the return, fumbling the ball and remaining on the ground while others attempted to recover it.
Players from both teams surrounded Ryans in support before he was taken off the field on a cart, receiving an ovation from his former team's home fans.
"They added pieces like Alshon [Jeffery], Torrey [Smith], Jay [Ajayi], and you knew anything could happen." "We played against some good teams, we knew could do something special, it's up to us.
