Report: Eagles right tackle Todd Herremans could be out for season
The Philadelphia Eagles offensive line problems just got worse.
Right tackle Todd Herremans sustained a foot injury in Monday night’s 28-13 loss to the New Orleans Saints and it could end his season, reports CSNPhilly.com. Herremans was on crutches after the game and was still on crutches on Tuesday, coach Andy Reid said.
“It’s not good,” one team official said. “It doesn’t look good at all. We’re still waiting for (more test results), but it looks bad.”
Herremans was replaced Monday night in New Orleans by Demetress Bell, who lost his starting left tackle job (in place of Peters) to King Dunlap. There’s a good chance the Eagles will flip-flop Dunlap and Bell this weekend, with Dunlap starting at right tackle and Bell at left tackle, simply because Bell is more comfortable on the left side and Dunlap is comfortable on either side.
The team is already without All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters and center Jason Kelce, who are both out for the season. Right guard Danny Watkins has not played in the last two games because of a chronic ankle injury.
