Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Robert Quinn will be placed on injured reserve and undergo a knee procedure, NFL Network reported Tuesday.

He will have to miss at least four games, but the NFC East-leading Eagles (11-1) are optimistic that the veteran can return for the playoffs, per the report.

Quinn, 32, was ruled out for last weekend's win against the Tennessee Titans after being a late addition to the injury report. He reportedly injured the knee during a practice.

He has two tackles, two quarterback hits and no sacks in five games -- playing a total of 70 defensive snaps -- since arriving in an Oct. 26 trade with the Chicago Bears.

Quinn, who set a Chicago single-season record with 18.5 sacks last season, has notched 102 sacks and 32 forced fumbles in 168 games (142 starts) with the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams (2011-17), Miami Dolphins (2018), Dallas Cowboys (2019), Bears and Eagles.

He is a three-time Pro Bowl selection (2013, 2014 and 2021).
