Eagles CB Ellis Hobbs is "very likely" to retire, according to reporter Jason La Canfora.

Hobbs suffered a neck injury covering a kickoff in the third quarter of Philadelphia's Week 11 game against the Giants, causing an 11-minute delay and requiring him to be taken off the field via stretcher. The sixth-year pro had full movement of all extremities following the game.

The Eagles placed Hobbs on injured reserve.

The way we see it

Hobbs' health is the most important thing, and he and the team's medical staff must feel he'll never be able to fully recover from the injury if he's considering ending his career. Hobbs had lost his starting job but was making an impact on special teams and provides a veteran presence with the team.
