Ellis Hobbs will be placed on the season-ending injured-reserve list, according to his agent, Kevin Omell.

As for Hobbs' career, Omell told the Philadelphia Daily News in an email: "can't speak to that at the moment. Have to see what doctors say and how he feels in the coming months physically and mentally... Right now, he just feels fortunate to be walking."

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ellis Hobbs reportedly will not play again this season after suffering his second neck injury in two seasons.

Hobbs, who hurt his neck returning the second-half kickoff in the Eagles' victory Sunday over the Giants, had an MRI exam that, according to Coach Andy Reid, "showed some damage in there to another disk [other than the one he hurt last year]."

"We'll keep an eye on him, evaluate him," Reid said. "Hobbs' [hit] was a little bit of a bang-bang thing . . . the kickoff is a crazy deal. There have been a lot of injuries on kickoffs."
