Mychal Kendricks, Jason Peters head to locker room, Eagles grab lead

The Eagles are down an inside linebacker, but they are up on the scoreboard.

Mychal Kendricks had to leave the field during the Packers’ first offensive possession after suffering a right knee injury at the end of a run by Eddie Lacy. Najeh Goode replaced him in the lineup and Kendricks eventually made his way to the locker room.

The Packers drove the ball into Eagles territory with Seneca Wallace making a couple of conversions through the air after Lacy got things going early. Things stalled out and Mason Crosby missed a 53-yard field goal to keep the Packers from grabbing an early lead.

Nick Foles hit DeSean Jackson for a 55-yard touchdown on a ball that was batted in the air by Morgan Burnett and Tramon Williams before they knocked each other down and Jackson grabbed the ball for an easy score.

The Eagles have announced Kendricks is questionable to return to Sunday’s game and left tackle Jason Peters also went to the locker room after the Eagles touchdown.

UPDATE 1:58 p.m. ET: Neither Kendricks nor Peters, who has been diagnosed with a quad injury, will return. Safety Earl Wolff is also done for the day with a knee injury.

    Peters is a huge loss, but Kendricks (despite being a 2nd round pick last year) is not a big deal. Kendricks’ 15 missed tackles is the most in the NFL among inside linebackers this year. He’s more suited to play the weakside lb on a 4-3 team, and is pretty undersized to be a 3-4 ILB. He hasn’t stepped up this year.
