Eagles lose defensive end Derek Barnett for the season

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett had shoulder surgery and will miss the rest of the season.

Barnett had 19 tackles and 2½ sacks this season. He had six sacks as a rookie, including playoffs. The 2017 first-round pick recovered Tom Brady's fumble on Brandon Graham's strip-sack to seal Philadelphia's 41-33 victory over New England in the Super Bowl.

Three-time Pro Bowl pick Michael Bennett will likely replace Barnett in the starting lineup. Bennett has three sacks in the past four games.

Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was back at practice Wednesday after missing three games because of a calf injury.

The Eagles (3-4) play the Jaguars (3-4) in London on Sunday.
