The injury news could have been worse for a couple of Eagles linebackers.

Kiko Alonso has a Grade II sprain - a partial tear - of his repaired left ACL, a source close to the situation said last night, which should sideline him at least a few weeks, but not for the season. And Mychal Kendricks has a mild hamstring strain.

Meanwhile, Eagles starting defensive end Cedric Thornton broke the fourth metacarpal on his right hand and will be sidelined a few weeks, according to freelance reporter/producer Laura Goldman, who met Thornton last night at a Big Brothers fundraiser and took a photo of Thornton with a cast on his right hand.

Efforts to elicit comment from Thornton and the Eagles last night were unsuccessful.
