Eagles Travis Long Tears ACL Again
Travis Long's season is over.
In just his second practice back from surgery, Long tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee which will end his season for the second consecutive season.
The Eagles have some depth issue at outside linebacker with the struggles of first round pick Marcus Smith, they also released veteran Trent Cole in the offseason.
If the Eagles want to open up a roster spot to sign another linebacker the team would have to waived the injured Long to do so.
Long, 24, spent the entire 2013 season on the Eagles practice squad before his hopes of making the roster, but his season was ended with the injury.
This is very unfortunate news for Long who also has suffered a torn ACL in his right knee in the past.
The Eagles are hoping that this is the last player to have a repeat injury to their same ACL as multiple players recovering from those injures were brought in during the offseason including Sam Bradford and Kiko Alonso.
