Eagles’ linebacker Nakobe Dean exits matchup vs. Patriots with foot injury

The Eagles are holding on to a 22-14 lead over the Patriots, and they’ll need to do it without second-year linebacker Nakobe Dean.

Dean is questionable to return to the contest at Gillette Stadium with a foot injury suffered in the third quarter.

Before suffering the injury, Dean had seven tackles for Philadelphia, who inserted Christian Elliss as the only remaining off-the-ball linebacker on the depth chart.
