The Eagles, gashed on the ground through two weeks of the season, will be trying to improve their fortunes by rearranging their linebackers.
Per Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, rookie Casey Matthews has been moved from middle linebacker to the weak side. Weak side linebacker Moise Fokou has been moved from the weak side to the strong side. And strong side linebacker Jamar Chaney has moved to the middle.
And so the Eagles are doing on defense what they previously did on offense. They’re addressing a weakness by moving around the parts of the puzzle. They did it with the offensive line, and they’re doing it with the defense.
Whether it works remains to be seen.
