Report: Eagles OLB Travis Long out for season with torn ACL

Monday August 3rd, 2015

Philadelphia Eagles outside linebacker Travis Long has sustained a torn ACL and is out for the 2015 season, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and James Palmer. The Eagles confirmed the injury on Monday.

This is the second year in a row that Long has torn the ACL in his left knee. He sustained the same injury during last year's preseason finale. 

According to Rapoport, Long was going to be in Philadelphia's three-man rotation at outside linebacker prior to the injury. Other OLBs on the Eagles roster include Connor Barwin, Brandon Graham and 2014 first-round pick Marcus Smith.

The 24-year-old Long signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2013 out of Washington State.
