Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks (calf) was limited in his return to action Sunday.

Kendricks, arguably the Eagles best defender and certainly their best cover linebacker, has missed the last three weeks. Getting him back would be huge for a unit that is getting absolutely embarrassed of late. Owners of Larry Donnell and Eli Manning should be watching closely ahead of Week 6.

Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks has been assisting with defensive play-calling in OTAs.

Fellow ILB DeMeco Ryans called the plays in 2013, but Kendricks is being groomed to potentially help. It could mean anything from Ryans will play less, to the Eagles want Kendricks to be ready if Ryans goes down with injury. Ryans played 96 percent of the Eagles' defensive snaps last season, but was bandied about as a release candidate. Ryans is on the downside of his career, while Kendricks has All-Pro upside.

Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks battled thumb issues last season and had it placed in a cast for about a month this offseason to let the loose tendons tighten up.

With his hand in a cast, Kendricks worked on his conditioning over the winter and expects to play faster. He also worked on his core strength to help prevent missed tackles. PFF credited Kendricks with a whopping 21 missed tackles in 2013. He's a sideline-to-sideline linebacker with All-Pro potential.
