Struggling Eagles Lose Another Offensive Lineman
Eagles right tackle Todd Herremans was placed on the season-ending Injured reserve list on Wednesday.
Herremans suffered a dislocated bone and ligament damage in his right foot in Monday’s loss to New Orleans. He should be ready for training camp, but the injury is the latest blow to a depleted offensive line. Herremans will wear a boot for at least eight weeks.
Philadelphia’s makeshift line is now without Herremans, left tackle Jason Peters, center Jason Kelce and right guard Danny Watkins. It’s one reason quarterback Michael Vick was sacked seven times by the Saints. Left guard Evan Mathis is the lone starter left standing.
The Eagles (3-5) host the Cowboys (3-5) on Sunday.
