Pro Football Weekly did a ranking this week of all 32 NFL teams in order of how badly they've been hit by injuries. It's a somewhat subjective rank in that it's not about the amount of weeks missed to injuries, instead they focus more on how important the injuries they've had were. They ranked the Eagles down at #23.
The Eagles have five players on IR this season (DE Victor Abiamiri, S Colt Anderson, DT Antonio Dixon, OLB Moise Fokou, WR Steve Smith), but as PFW says, their injuries have been more week to week.
The Eagles' injuries have been more of the week-to-week variety. Starters such as QB Michael Vick (three games), WR Jeremy Maclin (three), CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (three), DE Trent Cole (two) and OLT Jason Peters (two) all have missed time. Other key contributors such as DE Brandon Graham, Smith, Dixon, QB Vince Young, DE Darryl Tapp and special-teams ace Anderson all have missed various lengths of time, but it's not like you can say injuries have decimated Philly's season.
What do you say? Have injuries played a big part in the Eagles struggles this year? Obviously they lost two of three without their starting QB, so that's notable... There have been a lot of key players missing games but it is true that there hasn't been one killer, lost for the season type injury.
The Bills, who have 14 players on IR, led the list.
