Eagles LB Long Tears His ACL for the Second Straight Season

Carolina Panthers v Philadelphia Eagles

The season is over before it really even started for Eagles LB Travis Long, as for the second straight year the linebackers season is over after tearing his ACL.

The Philadelphia Daily News has the story:

SUDDENLY, Marcus Smith really matters again.

The encouraging talk from Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis about the team’s 2014 first-round pick was just a nice little note, to be filed under, “let’s check back on this after a few preseason games,” until news broke late yesterday afternoon that outside linebacker Travis Long had again torn his left ACL, in practice.

It’s the third career ACL tear for Long, the second to his left knee in as many years, and it ends the season of a player who was being counted upon for depth behind starters Brandon Graham and Connor Barwin.
