Last night's heartbreaking 48-22 loss against the Saints wasn't the only bad thing to happen to the Eagles last night. According to a post game release on PE.com, three players came out of Sunday's game nursing injuries. Star receiver DeSean Jackson left the game in the beginning of the fourth quarter with a groin injury and is currently listed as day-to-day. Brian Westbrook also left in the fourth quarter as well with an ankle sprain. According to reports by ESPN, the surgically-repaired ankle was swollen but coach Andy Reid said it would not require an MRI. Westbrook is hoping to play next week, but whether his ankle will allow it remains to be seen. Perhaps the worst recipient of injures though was reserve cornerback Dimitri Patterson, who fractured his hand during coverage on a first quarter punt return. Patterson's surgery is scheduled for today and he is expected to miss the next few weeks.
Cornerback Asante Samuel also sustained a stinger during a collision the fourth quarter, but he shouldn't miss any playing time.
