Eagles will have decisions on offensive line
With two weeks to go until the start of the regular season, the Philadelphia Eagles are still juggling the offensive line looking for the right fit.
Jamaal Jackson, recently removed from the physically unable to perform list, got some action with the first team in practice on Sunday, according to Jonathan Tamari of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Jackson is working his way back from a knee injury, and while coach Andy Reid will not play starters in the preseason finale, the hope is Jackson will be up to speed in time for the opener.
“We're going to work him in there with the ones and let him get some reps, see how he feels and push him a little bit there, and just see how he responds," Reid said. "He said he feels well, and the doctors have given him the clear. So, we'll give him a little work."
Of concern right now has to be left guard Todd Herremans. He had surgery on his left foot a year ago and had been held out of the first half of camp with a stress reaction. Herremans played on Friday at Kansas City and then suffered a right ankle injury on Sunday. It’s not believed to be serious, but Herremans needs to prove he can get on the field and stay on the field.
Meanwhile, at the other guard position Reid experimented with using Nick Cole in place of Stacy Andrews. We’ll see what shakes out at right guard moving forward. Soon, Reid will need to make a decision on the interior of his line.
