Alonso emerged as one of the Eagles' starting inside linebackers before his Week 2 injury. In Week 1, he reeled in a spectacular interception to save a touchdown, and we saw flashes of the former 2013 Defensive Rookie of the Year in pass coverage.

When he returns, he will likely be involved in a rotation that includes DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks. Rookie third-round pick Jordan Hicks has been filling in for Kendricks and Ryans while they sit out with injuries.
