Eagles to place Ellis Hobbs on IR

If you saw the hit yesterday, this news should come as no surprise: we've seen the last of Ellis Hobbs this year. Hobbs, who was crushed on a kick return attempt against the Giants, will be placed on IR due to a neck injury. Given how bad the hit looked, Hobbs is fortunate he doesn't have any extensive injuries.

Since he already lost his starting cornerback spot to Dimitri Patterson, the Eagles won't miss Hobbs too much. They can use Jorrick Calvin on kick returns and Joselio Hanson will be just fine in nickel formations. In terms of Hobbs and his future with the Eagles, he will be a free agent at the end of the year and I wouldn't be surprised if we've seen his last game in an Eagles uniform.
