The Philadelphia Eagles are rolling against the New York Jets, but that success has come with a bit of a cost. Right guard Andrew Gardner injured his right foot and is out for the remainder of the game. Gardner has been replaced in the game by Matt Tobin.

Gardner won the starting guard job thanks to a solid preseason. However, the offensive line played a subpar game against the Cowboys, leading to speculation that there could be changes going into Week 3. But the Eagles offense was able to put up 17 points in the first half against a Jets defense that ranked second in Football Outsider's DVOA metric.

A sixth-round pick by the Miami Dolphins in the 2009 NFL Draft, Gardner also spent time with the Texans before signing with the Eagles in 2014. He started eight games for Chip Kelly last season. Tobin was signed by the Eagles in 2013 as an undrafted free agent out of Iowa. Tobin started seven games for the Eagles in 2014.
