On the first day of spring workouts, the Eagles have already lost a player for the season.
Veteran linebacker Paul Worrilow collided with a teammate during a 7-on-7 red zone drill on Tuesday and the news isn’t good.
Worrilow is out for the season, a league source confirmed to NBC Sports Philadelphia. ESPN and NFL Network first reported Worrilow's season was over.
Based on Worrilow's reaction earlier in the day, that’s not much of a surprise. As soon as Worrilow went down after colliding with Corey Nelson on the pass to Donnel Pumphrey, Worrilow clutched at his right knee and began to pound his fist on the ground.
The entire NovaCare Complex’s practice bubble became silent while players took a knee and waited for the cart to arrive after the music was turned down almost completely. Worrilow’s right leg was stabilized by an aircast as he was helped onto the cart.
Worrilow, 28, was signed to a one-year deal worth $790,000 this offseason. He was brought in to provide some depth.
Worrilow, a Wilmington, Delaware, native, started 43 games for the Falcons from 2013-15 before becoming a rotational player for Atlanta in 2016 and then the Lions last year. He started eight games in Detroit in 2017.
