Eagles linebacker Paul Worrilow was carted off the field during Tuesday’s
practice with an air cast on his left knee and the diagnosis is a bad one for
the recent addition to the Philly roster.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Worrilow has been diagnosed with a torn
ACL. The injury would knock him out for the entire season.
The injury was part of an eventful day at linebacker for the Eagles. The team
also released six-year starter Mychal Kendricks Jordan Mills

Walker, Corey Nelson Bobby Massie

Worrilow signed with the Eagles as a free agent this offseason. He spent last
season with the Lions and was a member of the Falcons for his first four NFL
General manager Billy Eppler said Thursday that Ohtani underwent an MRI in
Los Angeles that showed improvement to his ulnar collateral ligament, clearing
him to take batting practice in private.
”That’s news I was hoping to hear,” Eppler said on a conference call.
Ohtani was placed on the disabled list with a UCL sprain June 8. He will be
re-evaluated by doctors in three weeks.
Asked whether Ohtani needs Tommy John surgery that could cause him to miss
the rest of this season as well as all of the 2019 season Jeremy Kerley
Jersey , Eppler said, ”No doctor has told me that Shohei needs
surgical intervention at this time.”
Ohtani has a Grade 2 sprain, or partial tear, of the UCL in his right elbow.
In hopes of avoiding Tommy John surgery Chidobe
Awuzie Jersey , the Angels had Ohtani’s ligament injected with
platelet-rich plasma and stem cells earlier this month. Eppler said he has not
had additional injections.
Eppler said Ohtani will not play in rehab games but will take batting
practice in a ”private and controlled environment” and could face live pitching
as soon as this weekend. Because Ohtani is not a position player, rehab games
were deemed unnecessary.
”We can control a little bit more the progression,” Eppler said. ”This allows
for more freedom, structure and control.”
Ohtani has not been cleared to pitch yet.
His last appearance came June 6 in a start against Kansas City. Ohtani left
after four innings with a blister and also mentioned he was feeling tightness in
his elbow. An MRI taken the next day revealed the UCL in his right elbow had
progressed from a Grade 1 strain to a more serious Grade 2 level.
Ohtani won four of his first five decisions before getting injured. He was
batting .289 with six home runs and 20 RBIs.
”I know that not being able to play baseball competitively and only being
able to train doesn’t really satisfy his appetite and his hunger to
play Michael Irvin

he’s excited about it.”
