Report: Eagles ready to try Danny Watkins as starter

Mired in a three-game losing streak, the Philadelphia Eagles are going to make two changes on the offensive line this week, only one of them necessitated by injury.

First-round draft pick Danny Watkins will take over for Kyle DeVan at right guard, according to Geoff Mosher of the Wilmington News Journal. Watkins will make his first NFL start Sunday against the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park, N.Y.

Watkins had a rough training camp and preseason and has not been active yet this season but DeVan, plucked off waivers, has struggled himself.

King Dunlap will replace Jason Peters at left tackle with a hamstring issue plaguing Peters, who formerly played for the Bills.
