Eagles Lose Jamaal Jackson for the Season

There was a sinking feeling when Eagles' center Jamaal Jackson hobbled off the field during the waning seconds of the first quarter last Sunday. Jackson had been the only consistent uninjured starter on an offensive line rocked by injuries and depth chart movements. With Jackson's departure for the entirety of the game, that streak came to an end. 

After Jackson suffered what was believed to be merely a sprained left knee, MRI tests this morning revealed that the sixth year veteran had suffered a torn ACL. Obviously, this will mean that Jackson will miss not only the final game against Dallas, but the entirety of the playoffs as well. Jackson will be the third player to have his season ended by a torn ACL, and will likely join MLB Stewart Bradley and TE Cornelius Ingram on Injured Reserve.

This is a huge loss to an already struggling offensive line. Let's hope that Nick Cole can step up in Jackson's place and finish the season strong. Andy Reid is expected to go into more detail about his plans for the offensive line during his press conference at noon today.
