The Eagles have reportedly lost one of their defensive linemen for the rest of the season.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that defensive end Derek Barnett will miss the rest of the year after having shoulder surgery. Barnett has been dealing with shoulder problems and missed their Week Five game against the Vikings as a result of the issue.

The 2017 first-round pick has started the other six games that the Eagles have played this season. He had 17 tackles and 2.5 sacks after recording 21 tackles and five sacks during his rookie season.

Brandon Graham, Michael Bennett and Chris Long will likely be the lead options at defensive end with Barnett out of the mix. The Eagles could also take a look at 2018 fourth-round pick Josh Sweat, although he has not played since Week Three.

  1. Ugggh. Different kinda feeling this year. After 41 years with no Super Bowl, I can live with a down year after getting that elusive, veeeeerrrrrry elusive ring.

  2. The rest of their schedule is relatively easy and that division rivals the AFC East as the worst in football. They can easily make the playoffs.

  3. Why do I feel that the Eagle’s theme song for this year should be Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust”?

  4. Get Sweaty baby!!
    This one hurts, but the depth on the line should be able to handle this.
    Next man UP!!
    ALL WE GOT/ALL WE NEED

  5. At least he there to grab that stripped ball from Brady in the Super Bowl. It was also kinda handy he was there to sack Luck at the end of the Indy game too. Miss u bro.

  6. This may be a reach by after this injury in addition to the injuries last year, im taking a serious look at the Eagles training/medical staff. Last year, Peters, Sproles, Wentz, Hicks etc. This year Wallace, Hollis, Jernigan, Ngata, Ajayi. Something’s not adding up.

    Lane Johnson is still having fun

    I’m sure every time he get’s a little bit down he remembers winning SB LII. How about you? Enjoying that runner-up trophy?

  8. Not sure what league pastabelly is following, but in the National Football League, only the AFC West and NFC South have better records than the AFC East.

    No, I’m enjoying my 5 super bowls.

  10. The bitterness from Pats fans is what makes this tough injury riddled year so much better for me. Tommy lost to a back QB ladies, never forget!

  11. Pats fans bitter??? No , Pats fans know we have a solid chance to be back in the playoffs, or even AFC championship, we have been BLESSED the past 19 years!!! Repeat BLESSED!!!Nothing to be bitter about!!
    Go Red Sox!!

  12. Eagles have suffered a lot of injuries this year. You have to wonder if trading for veteran help is the right thing to do at this point? getting the team younger with draft picks and playing the best they can with this year’s team might be the best option.

  13. Gloating over an injury to a player on another team is as classless as, well, the typical Patriot fan.
    There is only one reigning World Champion, so get over it. Nothing else matters until a new one is crowned.
    Kudos to the Pats for their success in the past. However, The Eagles are much better positioned for success in the next several years.

    41-33. That is all.

  14. Stop.. There’s no Pats fans gloating over injuries..Tell yourself that to get everyone worked up. Alternative facts.

    Injuries are sad to see and way too common for all NFL teams.

    Your comment about all that matters is you hold the title until the next Super Bowl winner is silly.

    And I would seriously doubt you are positioned better for future Super Bowls.. As you were this year right?

    Go Pats!

  15. Eagles fans are OK with this and the team…

    Why? Because the players are having fun, they said so.

    FYI, I do not like the Pats being a long time Bears fan, but the fans of the Pats are having fun, even if Pats players aren’t having fun.

  16. Stay classy Pat fans. Wow.. salty and still bitter. Quick to point out the multiple SB wins but continue tp bitch and moan about losing. If you want to talk about cheating, let’s talk about the 2004 SB and spygate.

    I respectfully disagree, which is how mature discourse used to happen in this country.

    This is an article announcing the surprising season ending injury to a promising young Eagles player. Among the first comments is TYLAWSPICK^ talking about the football gods. I don’t know what you call that, but I call it gloating.

    Unless and until you are eliminated, everyone has a shot at the Super Bowl this year and they are all chasing the reigning champ. Nothing silly about that, in my opinion. It is a fact. Facts, by definition, do not need a qualifying adjective.

  18. Philly talks non stop about super bowl. Act like it’s a given every year. Team is one year wonder and now mad getting trolled. Can’t make this up
