As if losing their seventh straight game wasn’t painful enough, the Philadelphia Eagles are forced to deal with injuries to wide receiver DeSean Jackson and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox as well.

According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Jackson has a rib cartilage injury and will undergo a CT scan and MRI on Tuesday morning.

Cox will also have a CT scan Tuesday for a lower back contusion. Both Jackson and Cox were forced from the game in the first half.

Quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy have yet to be cleared to return from concussions suffered in the last two weeks. Vick is the closer of the two to being able to return as McCoy still hasn’t reached baseline levels.

    Seems like everyone’s checking out in Philadelphia. Good Night for the rest of the season.

    Luckily the Eagles locked DeSean up long term with a big contract.

    Using DeSean Jackson is not I repeat not a loss it is a gain. Maybe just maybe the biggest punk in the league.
