UPDATE: Davis had x-rays done yesterday that did not reveal a fracture; however, a league source believes he suffered a high ankle sprain. He is pending an MRI today. If the diagnosis stands, Davis will be out 4-6 weeks.
The Philadelphia Eagles are more than halfway through their Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But, it didn’t come without injury.
In the second quarter of the game, Eagles’ first-round pick Jordan Davis was carted off of the field.
JORDAN DAVIS SUSTAINS INJURY IN WEEK 8 GAME
With a little over three minutes left in the first half of Philadelphia’s Week 8 home game, Jordan Davis was hurt. Injuring his right leg, he was unable to put any weight on it as he made his way to the sideline. After being evaluated in the medical tent, a cart was made available to take him to the locker room.

He has since been ruled out with an ankle injury, but will need further testing to determine his future status.
Throughout training camp, Davis was a standout. His size paired with his unconventional quickness has become a key piece to the Eagles’ defense. In Philadelphia’s first six games, Davis has played in at least 30 percent of the defensive snaps. He has one tackle under his belt.
The Eagles are now 28-10 in the third quarter. If they come out victorious over the Steelers, Philadelphia will continue their undefeated streak at 7-0.
