A bad offensive line in Philadelphia could be getting even worse.
According to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com, right tackle Todd Herremans could be done for the year after suffering a foot injury on Monday night against the Saints.
“It’s not good,” one team official told Frank. “It doesn’t look good at all. We’re still waiting for [more test results], but it looks bad.”
Before the season, the Eagles lost left tackle Jason Peters and center Jason Kelce. Guard Danny Watkins has missed the last two games with a sprained ankle.
Given that quarterback Mike Vick is, unlike Inigo Montoya, actually left handed, Herremans protects the quarterback’s blind side. So the loss of Herremans hurts badly.
Until, of course, right-handed quarterback Nick Foles takes over.
