Since Chip Kelly became the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, the team as been one of the healthiest in the NFL. However, on a usually light day of practice, the Eagles were missing several key players who were sitting out of practice with some sort of an injury.
On the offensive line alone, Jason Peters, Allen Barbre, and Lane Johnson all sat out practice. Missing three out of five starters along the already struggling offensive line is a major blow to the offense, especially when they were already lacking depth along the line.
Peters left Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins with a quad injury. It is still unclear if he will play on Sunday. If not, expect Matt Tobin to replace him.
Johnson sat out practice with an MCL and ankle sprain. He told reporters on Tuesday that he is expecting to return in time for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints.
Barbre was seen standing next to Peters and Johnson on the sidelines of Tuesday's practice. There was no word on his condition and his status for the game on Sunday is up in the air. Hopefully it is nothing serious and he will be ready to go against the Saints.Read more... Join the Conversation...
