Wilcox suffered a torn ACL at practice Monday and is out for the season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Wilcox went down in a heap and had to be helped off the field by teammates, and he was later seen limping noticeably before being escorted to the locker room by trainers. Coach Dan Quinn did not specify the nature or severity of the issue immediately after practice, but it was revealed soon thereafter that the 28-year-old safety's season would be over before it truly got underway. Wilcox was not expected to start over Keanu Neal (knee-ACL) by any stretch, but he was certainly considered to be a steady rotational player who could see substantial regular-season playing time. Now that Wilcox is out for 2019, Damontae Kazee would likely be the No. 2 option at strong safety if Neal were to miss time.
