Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso (knee) probable vs. Cowboys

Friday November 6th, 2015

Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso is listed as probable for Sunday night’s game against the Cowboys.

Alonso was initially diagnosed with a partially torn ACL after leaving Philadelphia’s Week 2 loss to the Cowboys, which would have reportedly held him out for the remainder of the season. Five weeks ago, he went for a second opinion and was told the ligament was intact, and that he could return after a month of rehab.

He missed the entire 2014 season with a torn left ACL, and sustained the same injury to his right knee in college.

Alonso was acquired during the off-season from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for running back LeSean McCoy. In two games this season, he recorded seven total tackles and an interception.

The Eagles (3–4) and Cowboys (2–5) play at 8:30 p.m. ET on Sunday night.
