Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Jordan Hicks has participated in individual drills during recent organized team activities, PhillyVoice.com reported.

Hicks is working his way back from a torn Achilles sustained on Oct. 23 against the Washington Redskins.

The 25-year-old recorded 19 tackles in seven games last season for the Eagles, who have become a bit thin at linebacker after releasing Mychal Kendricks last week while seeing free-agent acquisition Paul Worrilow suffer a torn ACL in practice.

Hicks totaled 163 tackles, seven interceptions and two sacks in 31 games over three seasons since the Eagles selected him in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

The Eagles signed Kyle Wilson last week to address their depth at the linebacker position.

Wilson, who went undrafted last month, signed with the Eagles after trying out during their rookie minicamp on May 11-13. The 6-foot, 231-pound Wilson recorded 173 tackles, 4.5 sacks and an interception in the last two seasons at Arkansas State.
