Johnson, Pryor among seven Eagles out Sunday vs Ravens.
Injuries continue to pile up for the birds. The Eagles will now be missing RG Matt Pryor on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Pryor was placed on the COVID-19/Reserve list. For those keeping count, Pryor is now the 6th offensive lineman to be out for the Eagles. Lane Johnson is also out with an ankle injury. Jack Driscoll will replace Johnson at right tackle.
Avonte Maddox will miss another game alongside Desean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery. Marcus Epps and Duke Riley are both sidelined with rib injuries. Darius Slay is listed as questionable with a concussion but Doug Pederson said he is expected to play.
Travis Fulgham will definitely continue his heavy reps with no Reagor, Jackson, or Alshon joining him this week. This means there will be no protests at the Nova Care Complex for at least another week.
Shaun Bradley will get more playing time this week due to Duke Riley being injured.
Isaac Seumalo is still out with a knee injury. Next man up at right guard for the Eagles will be Jamon Brown. Brown was a former 3rd round pick in the 2015 draft out of Louisville for the Rams. Brown has been an on and off starter his entire career. In 2016 he went down with a leg fracture and missed the season but started all of 2017 for the Rams at right guard. He was benched in 2018 for a substance-abuse violation and was waived. Jamon started a few games in 2019 for the Atlanta Falcons before being benched again and was released at the end of the season.
Baltimore has been a force up front but hopefully, with Brown’s experience, he can help fill in the gap as Pryor has been seen as the weak link for the birds on the line. It seems to only be a one-two week issue and hopefully, Seumalo and Peters will return soon to bolster their o-line depth.
