Head coach Doug Pederson indicated that defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway would be sidelined indefinitely during his Wednesday press conference. The team officially placed Ridgeway on Injured Reserve after he suffered an ankle injury Sunday in Dallas.
Acquired in a draft weekend trade with the Indianapolis Colts, Ridgeway took over as the starter alongside Fletcher Cox in Week 3 after injuries to Malik Jackson and Tim Jernigan.
Ridgeway had 10 tackles and two sacks in 252 defensive snaps. The 24-year-old Ridgeway is in his fourth season out of Texas.
The Eagles released veteran Akeem Spence on Monday, so they filled their spots on the roster with rookie free agent defensive tackles Albert Huggins and Anthony Rush.
