The Eagles are expected to move Kiko Alonso to weak-side linebacker in new coordinator Jim Schwartz's 4-3 defense.
It's where Nigel Bradham amassed 104 tackles in 14 games for Schwartz in Buffalo in 2014, and where DeAndre Levy notched 119 tackles across 16 starts for Schwartz's Lions in 2013. Alonso was a big disappointment in his first season with the Eagles, causing just one turnover and finishing 49th among 60 qualified inside linebackers in Pro Football Focus' grades. Still only 25 years old, Alonso is a decent bet to bounce back under Schwartz in 2016. Jan 19 - 9:40 PM

Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso (knee) expects to return for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys.

Alonso has been sidelined since Week 2. With Jordan Hicks shining in Alonso's absence, it's unclear how Philly plans to divvy up snaps between Alonso, Hicks, DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks. Ryans missed Week 7 with a hamstring issue.

Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso (knee) hopes to return Week 9 against the Cowboys.

Alonso got in a limited practice on Wednesday, but he will not play this week. The Eagles are on bye Week 8. The inside linebacker position has been a game of musical chairs in Philadelphia this season. Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) should play this week, but DeMeco Ryans (hamstring) is questionable. Promising rookie Jordan Hicks has been the only constant so far, and he should retain a role in the defense even when all three veterans return.

Eagles declared ILBs Kiko Alonso (knee) and Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) inactive for Week 5 against the Saints.

Alonso is still several weeks away, but Kendricks could return as early as next week. Rookie Jordan Hicks will continue to see a heavy workload. Philadelphia also declared DE Brandon Bair, QB Thad Lewis, RB Kenjon Barner, CB Denzel Rice and OL Julian Vandervelde inactive for Week 5.

Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso (knee) is out for Week 5 against the Saints.

As expected. Alonso hasn't practiced since aggravating his surgically repaired knee in Week 2. He should be back in about a month.

Eagles declared ILB Kiko Alonso inactive for Week 4 against the Redskins.

Alonso is expected to return in a month after getting good news on his surgically-repaired knee. Philadelphia also declared DE Cedric Thornton, DE Taylor Hart, QB Thad Lewis, OL Julian Vandervelde, OLB Marcus Smith and S Chris Maragos inactive for Week 4.

After visiting Dr. James Andrews, it was revealed Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso's left ACL is intact and he's expected to play again this season.

Alonso underwent a knee scope this week to resolve the issue. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Alonso faces a month-long rehab before he'll make his return to the field. The Eagles have yet to use their I.R./designated for return slot, but it sounds like this isn't an eight-week injury. Expect the Eagles to take it slow with Alonso, though he should be back sometime in November.

Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso (knee) is rehabbing with Dr. James Andrews this week and will not undergo surgery for his partially-torn ACL.

According to coach Chip Kelly, Alonso will not be placed on season-ending injured reserve, suggesting he has a chance to still play in 2015. It's a big risk, as Alonso partially tore the same ACL that he completely tore last year. (We know it's a new ligament, but still.) Alonso seems determined to get back on the field.

Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso is getting a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews on the partially-torn ACL in his left knee.

The second opinion will help Alonso and the Eagles decide if surgery is needed. If Alonso goes under the knife, his season would almost certainly be finished. Rookie Jordan Hicks started and played well Week 3 against the Jets.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed ILB Kiko Alonso (knee) will not play this week.

Alonso is reportedly considering surgery on a partially torn ACL in his left knee. He may be done for the season. With Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) questionable at best, rookie Jordan Hicks will likely draw the start this week.

The Philadelphia Inquirer confirms Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso (partially torn left ACL) is considering surgery.

"Still in the evaluation process," were the words of DC Billy Davis on Alonso's injury. "We’re crossing our fingers and hoping everything turns out the best." Most reports have painted a picture of surgery as an inevitability, but Alonso understandably wants to exhaust every alternative after missing all of 2014. The odds are high he's played his final snap of 2015, however.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso (knee) could still be facing a season-ending injury.

Rapoport confirmed the diagnosis of a partially torn ACL, or Grade 2 sprain, but said Alonso will get a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews to determine if he needs surgery. If he undergoes surgery, Alonso's season would be over. Considering the issues Alonso has had coming back from the torn ACL he suffered in the same knee in 2014, surgery and another year of rehab may be the best option.

The Philadephia Daily News' Les Bowen reported Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso has a Grade 2 sprain of his left ACL.

If the report is accurate, the injury will sideline Alonso at least a couple weeks, but it is not the season-ending injury the Eagles feared. The left ACL is the same one which cost Alonso the entire 2014 season. Even if it is just a sprain, Philadelphia will likely be exceedingly cautious with his recovery.
Tue, Sep 22, 2015 08:53:00 AM

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports there's a "possibility" Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso (knee) will miss the rest of the season.

Per Garafolo, more tests need to be done on Alonso's knee, but his season is in "jeopardy." Alonso's injury is to the same knee in which he tore his ACL last year, costing Alonso the entire season. It would be a devastating loss for the Eagles and a crushing blow to Alonso, who would require another full year of knee rehab.
Mon, Sep 21, 2015 07:20:00 PM

Eagles coach Chip Kelly didn't update the status of Kiko Alonso (knee) or Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) at Monday's presser.

Alonso is undergoing an MRI on his surgically-repaired left knee, and is the more concerning of the two situations. We should learn his status sometime in the next 48 hours.
