Reports: DeMeco Ryans Tears Achilles, Done for the Year

Eagles defensive captain and starting inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans has reportedly torn his right Achilles tendon and is out for the remainder of the season, according to multiple reports.

Ryans intercepted a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass before going down holding his right leg without any contact from a Texans player. He fumbled the ball on the play, and it was recovered by Houston’s DeAndre Hopkins.

Casey Matthews filled in for Ryans for the rest of the game, although it is likely we will now see Marcus Smith II finally see the field to spell Matthews throughout the the year.
