The Eagles left MLB Jordan Hicks off the final injury report after he put in full practices Thursday and Friday. Hicks started the week limited by the calf issue that cost him the past 4 games but looks ready for a full return. He'll find a Houston offense that presents a top-6 scoring matchup for fantasy LBs on the year. We've vaulted Hicks up the Week 16 IDP rankings. Elsewhere on the Philly D, DE Michael Bennett is questionable with his foot injury. He has played through questionable tags since Week 13 with the issue. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

The Cardinals will be signing LB Jordan Hicks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hicks should grab a full-time role in the middle of Arizona's 3-4 base front and be in line for at least solid IDP value. His departure leaves a void in the middle of the Philly defense. We'll see how the team addresses it.

Eagles MLB Jordan Hicks ruptured his left Achilles' tendon in Monday night's win over Washington and will miss the rest of the season. Najee Goode is the immediate backup. Weak-side LB Mychal Kendricks could finally be in for a playing-time boost, though we'll need to wait to see if that's the case. He missed Monday's game with a hamstring injury.

Eagles LB Jordan Hicks suffered a hand injury while on his honeymoon in Greece, according to multiple reports. Philly.com reports that Hicks hurt the hand when he slipped and fell and that it's expected to heal in 3-4 weeks. That would put Hicks on track to have the hand ready for the start of training camp. Of course, we've also seen many defenders play through hand issues. This situation shouldn't affect Hicks' IDP outlook.

Eagles MLB Jordan Hicks (ankle) is active for today's finale against the Cowboys. He's OK to use as normal if he was in your IDP plans. OLB Mychal Kendricks (quad) is inactive, removing any chance of coaches taking a look at the underperforming former 2nd-round pick heading into the offseason. Kendricks remains signed through 2019, but his $4.35 million salary for next year becomes guaranteed on the 3rd day of the 2017 league calendar (which begins in March). That makes him look like a strong candidate for release this winter. A good landing spot and healthy offseason could put Kendricks back into dynasty consideration.

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
