Todd Herremans injury: Eagles offensive lineman injures biceps

New, comments

The Eagles may be dealing with yet another offensive line injury.

According to Howard Eskin of FOX29, there is an injury concern with Philadelphia Eagles right guard Todd Herremans. The veteran offensive lineman has apparently injured his biceps.

Herremans left the team's Week 8 game against the Arizona Cardinals late in the fourth quarter but returned shortly afterwards. Backup offensive lineman Andrew Gardner played just three snaps in Herremans' absence.

The Eagles have obviously suffered a number of issues up front on the offensive line all year. The team started out the season with starting right tackle Lane Johnson suspsended for four games. Then in Week 1 both Evan Mathis and fill-in starter Allen Barbre both went down with long-term injuries. Barbre was placed on season-ending injured reserve while Mathis was placed on injured reserve, designated to return. Starting center Jason Kelce was the next man down after suffering a sports hernia in Week 3.

The good news for Philadelphia is that Kelce and Mathis are both scheduled to return by Week 10. It's even possible Kelce returns as soon as this week (Week 9), but that's no guarantee.

In any case, the Eagles will hope Herremans' injury isn't too serious. If the veteran right guard is expected to miss time, however, Andrew Gardner will likely fill in during his absence.

The status of Herremans will be one to watch as the Eagles prepare to play the Houston Texans this week.
