Report: Ellis Hobbs Out for Season With Neck Injury Suffered Against Giants

by

Ellis Hobbs cannot catch a break — but at least he's alright.

The Eagles' cornerback and kick returner was optimistic about returning to the field this year after suffering a vicious hit to the head in last night's game against the Giants, but it appears he won't be doing so.

Although X-rays on his neck were negative, a league source told CSN Philly that the former Patriot will be out for the rest of the 2010 season.

Hobbs, who missed the final eight games of the 2009 regular season with a neck injury that required surgery, was involved in a helmet-to-helmet collision with Giants defensive end Dave Tollefson on the opening kickoff.

"He does have a disc injury in there — not the same disc that he had before," Eagles head coach Andy Reid told CSN Philly. "We're just going to take our time and further evaluate and see how he does."
