The Eagles could be in some trouble on the defensive side of the ball.

Outside linebacker Trent Cole might be out for the remainder of the 2014 NFL season due to a fractured hand sustained during Philadelphia's 38-27 loss to the Cowboys this past Sunday night, according to a report from

That would be a huge blow to an Eagles defense to lose Cole, who has 6.5 sacks and 19 quarterback hurries this season.

If Cole is unable to play, Brandon Graham will step in the starter's role for him.
