DE Josh Sweat regarding Jordan Davis’ ankle injury: “But we’ll adjust”

Jordan Davis is one of the finest NFL players and a firm cornerstone for the Philadelphia Eagles. The team had a good start to this season with  Davis on their side. While he averaged only 35% of snaps on defense through the first six games, he was a hulking presence in the base five-man front.

Eagles were having their time until the DE faced an ankle injury while playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Sunday.

Davis was slow to get back to his feet after falling late in the second quarter of the game against the Steelers, and he needed the assistance of a couple trainers to walk off the field into the blue medical tent.

Davis was down for a while, and head coach Nick Sirianni even went out onto the field to check on him. “It was just one of them plays where he got rolled up and somebody fell on him,” defensive tackle Fletcher Cox said.

The team definitely can not afford to lose such a skilled player in the midst of the season, but the show must go on. Eagles’ defensive end Josh Sweat also suggests the same, as he said, “It’s definitely going to change some things. But we’ll adapt.”

Although the severity of his injury is not determined yet, it’s assumed not to be season-threatening. The 22-year-old promising star will soon be back on the team after recovering from the injury. And while he is at it, the team will have to go on without him and maintain their winning streak.
