The Bucs injury-riddled roster may meet its’ match on Thursday night against the Eagles. Most of the Eagles starting offensive line was listed on Monday’ injury report, which could be a big factor on a short week. The Bucs pass rush seems to be finding their way, and Philadelphia already has two starting offensive linemen on injured reserve. Shaq Barrett has especially done well with 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble in his previous two games.
The Eagles have already lost starting guards Brandon Brooks and Isaac Seumalo to injury, and now replacement Landon Dickerson is banged up. The Alabama rookie should be able to play on Thursday night, but star right tackle Lane Johnson might not be so lucky. Johnson is away from the team dealing with a personal matter. Right now, head coach Nick Sirianni isn’t sure if he’ll be back at all this season.
Here is the Eagles’ Monday injury report:
DE Derek Barnett – Ankle – Did Not Participate
G Landon Dickerson – Ankle – Full Participation
TE Dallas Goedert – Illness – Did Not Participate
T Lane Johnson – Not Injury Related – Personal Matter – Did Not Participate
C Jason Kelce – Foot/Rest – Did Not Participate
T Jordan Mailata – Knee – Limited Participation
