Report: Nakobe Dean to be placed on IR due to Lisfranc injury

More injury news continues to pour in for the Eagles during a much-needed week off. According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, linebacker Nakobe Dean, a third-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, will be moved to injured reserve due to a Lisfranc injury:

Dean played just 34 defensive snaps in his rookie season and seemed primed for a bigger role in 2023, but injuries continue to pile up. A foot injury in Week 1 landed Dean on IR for the first time this season. He was activated back in October in time for the Eagles’ away game against the Jets.

In five games this season (four starts), Dean had recorded 22 solo tackles. He also got a half-sack in Week 9 against Dallas, the first sack of his career.

A Lisfranc injury is in the foot and has required surgery in the past, which would essentially end Dean’s season. For a defense as short on linebackers as the Eagles, this is an all-around brutal turnaround.
