EAGLES LB GRUGIER-HILL DINGS KNEE, SEPT. 8 OPENER IN DOUBT!

By Harry Allison

There’s bad news from Eagles training camp:

Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill may miss the regular season opener on Sept. 8 with a knee injury.

He stayed down after a collision with running back Jordan Howard in yesterday’s practice and grabbed his left knee. He took a cart back inside after limping to the sideline.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that Grugier-Hill has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 MCL sprain. He is expected to remain out into the regular season with the hope of returning to action “relatively early” in the year.

Grugier-Hill is entering his third year with the Eagles and is pencilled into a starting job for the second straight year. He had 45 tackles, a sack, an interception and a forced fumble while starting 10 games during the 2018 season.

Nigel Bradham has not done team drills yet in camp, so the Eagles are down a couple of linebackers. Zach Brown, Nate Gerry and L.J. Fort are among the healthy players at the position right now.
