Rumor: Isaac Seumalo could miss the remainder of the season with a broken foot
The Philadelphia Eagles offensive line suffered another brutal blow during last night’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys. After losing Brandon Brooks for half the season last week, Isaac Seumalo is likely done for the season. According to Derrick Gunn, Seumalo broke a few bones in his foot last night and is almost certainly out for the remainder of the season.
Isaac Seumalo has been tremendous to start the season, and this is truly a devastating blow to the Philadelphia offense. Jordan Mailata also was out last night with an MCL Sprain, but it isn’t believed to be serious. K’Von Wallace was ruled out with a shoulder injury, but no further details have been provided.
Although the Eagles have been praised for their deep offensive line, their depth is already very thin after losing Brooks and Isaac Seumalo. Landon Dickerson will be starting at right guard for the next several weeks, while Nate Herbig will take over for Isaac Seumalo at left guard. Dickerson has been brutal through two starts and can hopefully get on the right track soon.
The remaining backups for the Eagles include Andre Dillard, Jack Driscoll, recently signed Jack Anderson, Brett Toth, and Sua Opeta. If Dickerson or Herbig were to go down, Opeta is Philadelphia’s next best option until Anderson is situated with the playbook.
Jack Driscoll is cross-trained at guard but is best served as the backup right tackle. Currently, Driscoll is on the injured reserve list but is expected to come off this week. Other injuries for the Eagles include Brandon Graham, who is done for the year with a torn Achilles, Rodney McLeod, Davion Taylor, and several others.
After thinking things might change this season for the Eagles, the injury bug continues to be a serious issue for this team. They are now down several of their critical starters for significant periods of time while heading into their most brutal stretch of the season.
Isaac Seumalo is out for the season with a Lisfranc injury, according to reports. Lisfranc is the same injury that Alshon Jeffery suffered a few seasons back. K’Von Wallace heads to the IR with a separated shoulder.
