The Eagles struck a deal to acquire pass rusher Robert Quinn from the Bears in exchange for a fourth-round pick.
The move just didn’t work out the way they had hoped.
Head coach Nick Sirianni provided some insight into the role he played for him on Black Friday.
“I see his ability to really run the passer and we have to continue to work on putting him in situations where he can do that. Yeah, I’m happy with Robert and happy to have him on this team and he’s a great addition to the depth that we already have good defensive lines.”
“I just know he’s going to play very soon, a big game in a big situation here because we know how much talent he has and how good a player he is,” Sirianni continued.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelossero reported on the extent of the knee on Tuesday afternoon.
Pelissero added that he believes Quinn will be out for at least the next four weeks.
Quinn has had little to no impact since coming off the trade with the Bears, but the team hopes he may be able to return before the end of the season and give them something in the playoffs.
He was one of the top tacklers in the NFL during Chicago, finishing the season with 18.5 sacks and has 102 career sacks.
