Mychal Kendricks Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The Eagles expect to start Mychal Kendricks on the weak side, Jordan Hicks in the middle and free-agent addition Nigel Bradham on the strong side in 2016, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Hicks played impressively well as a rookie after injuries to Kendricks and Kiko Alonso forced him into the lineup. Bradham played under new DC Jim Schwartz in Buffalo in 2014. Kendricks' skill set makes him dangerous from any spot.

The Associated Press reports that the Eagles have agreed to trade CB Byron Maxwell and LB Kiko Alonso to the Dolphins for an undisclosed draft pick. The deal reportedly won't be officially announced until Wednesday. Philly signed Maxwell to a large free-agent deal just last offseason, when Chip Kelly was running personnel. Kelly also traded RB LeSean McCoy to Buffalo for Alonso, only to watch the LB suffer a knee injury in Week 2 and never return to full playing time. The Dolphins pick up a pair of potential immediate starters at positions of weakness. The Eagles likely viewed Alonso as expendable given their switch to a 4-3 base under new DC Jim Schwartz and the 2015 emergence of rookie LB Jordan Hicks. He and Kendricks could prove to be strong IDP options in the rearranged defense. We would expect no higher than a mid-round pick to go Philly's way, given Maxwell's big contract and Alonso's 2 straight seasons with knee injuries. Of course, both players will need to pass physicals to finalize the deal.

So much for the positive spin on Eagles ILB Jordan Hicks' pectoral injury. FOX's Jay Glazer reports that Hicks will hit IR after suffering a tear, which a Monday MRI must have revealed. That clears the way for Kiko Alonso to reclaim his starting -- and likely full-time -- job next to Mychal Kendricks. Alonso returned Sunday night from a Week 2 knee injury. Both Philly ILBs carry top-20 fantasy potential at their position the rest of the way

Updating a previous item, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Eagles expect ILB Jordan Hicks to miss 2-4 weeks with the pectoral injury he suffered late in Sunday night's win over Dallas. That's relative good news, because it indicates they don't believe Hicks suffered a complete tear -- which would end his season. The rookie will undergo further tests to determine the extend of the injury. In the meantime, it looks like Philly will be back to its season-opening duo of Kiko Alonso and Mychal Kendricks at ILB in Week 10 against Miami.

Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks will return for tonight's game against the Panthers after basically missing all of the past 4 games with a hamstring injury. Playing him in your IDP league remains risky, however. Philly has proved willing to ease him back into the lineup from injuries in the past. That might be tougher to do this time, because DeMeco Ryans is inactive with his own hamstring injury. He joins Kiko Alonso on the inactive list. That leaves rookie Jordan Hicks in the lineup again, and he's probably the safest IDP bet among Philly LBs -- if you've waited this long to start 1. Kendricks, of course, brings plenty of scoring upside any time he plays.

Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks put in a full practice Wednesday. He has missed 3 full games among the past 4 and most of the other with a hamstring injury suffered back in Week 2. The full Wednesday practice has us hopeful for a full return to action at Carolina on Sunday night. We'll certainly watch for further reports on Kendricks' status this week. LB Kiko Alonso also put in a limited practice Wednesday. If he remains out, Kendricks and emergent rookie Jordan Hicks could start together. Hicks has been playing in Kendricks' spot, but veteran DeMeco Ryans suffered a hamstring injury in Monday night's win over the Giants.

The Eagles have ruled out LB Mychal Kendricks for Sunday's game against the Saints. That'll give another start to rookie revelation Jordan Hicks. He probably makes for a more attractive IDP option than Kendricks would have, given the hammy question.

The Eagles lost LB Mychal Kendricks and CB Byron Maxwell to injuries on their 1st defensive drive of the game. Kendricks tweaked the hamstring injury that cost him Week 3 and is questionable to return, according to FOX's game crew. Maxwell hurt a quad and is also questionable -- but reportedly more likely to return today than Kendricks. LB Jordan Hicks helped keep Washington out of the end zone in his 1st action with a nice tackle on RB Chris Thompson. Hicks has played terrifically in recent weeks in Kendricks' place.

Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks is active for today's game at Washington. He missed Week 3 with a hamstring injury suffered in the Week 2 loss to the Cowboys. We'd still be a bit wary of using him in an IDP league today, especially given how well rookie Jordan Hicks played in Kendricks' absence the past 2 weeks. Philly should feel comfy easing Kendricks back in to take care of his hamstring. Of course, a full-power Kendricks comes with as much fantasy upside as just about any LB. So decide how much you're willing to take the risk (compared with your other options).

Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. Kendricks practice in full all week, however, and seems on track to play. The weather/field conditions might factor into his availability and playing time. We'll check on his status Sunday morning.

Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks is inactive for today's game against the Jets. That should mean the 1st career start for rookie LB Jordan Hicks. He presents some interesting upside if you're in a deep league and willing to take a risk. Hicks outplayed veteran DeMeco Ryans when both filled in last week.

Eagles HC Chip Kelly said Thursday that LB Kiko Alonso will miss Sunday's game against the Jets with his knee sprain, according to PhillyVoice's Rich Hoffman. LB Mychal Kendricks, meanwhile, remains a question mark with his hamstring injury. Kelly said he'd work with a trainer Thursday and that the team will "monitor him" heading into Friday and Saturday. Don't plan on having Kendricks in your IDP lineup. DeMeco Ryans figures to start in Alonso's place, with Jordan Hicks joining him if Kendricks can't go.'s Les Bowen reports that Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks suffered only a mild hamstring strain when he left Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. Bowen doesn't give any expected timeline, but it sounds like a week-to-week type of injury. We'll see if Kendricks participates in practice at all this week. If he doesn't put in a full workout, he'll be an iffy IDP option for Sunday. It might be better for the team to keep him out for at least a game, especially after rookie Jordan Hicks filled in well Sunday.

Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks limped off the field appearing to hold a hamstring after running with Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar on a deep route. We'll keep an eye out for updates on his status the rest of the way -- and beyond.

UPDATE: The Eagles have ruled Kendricks out for the rest of the game.
