Former Philadelphia Eagles pass rusher Connor Barwin might not be able to suit up against his former team this season.
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay told reporters that Barwin suffered a broken forearm and will be out for a couple weeks.
The Eagles and Rams are scheduled to face off in L.A. in Week 14 on December 10.
Philadelphia released Barwin, who turned 31 in October, earlier this offseason in an effort to save cap space. Barwin was a good player for the Eagles who made great contributions in the community during his time in Philly from 2013-2016.
Through 11 games with the Rams, Barwin has recorded 25 tackles and four sacks. He ranks tied for second on the team in sacks.
Our friends at Turf Show Times have more info on Barwin’s replacements.
Expect to see more of rookies Samson Ebukam and Ejuan Price, and second-year player Matt Longacre. Ebukam was the main beneficiary of the Barwin injury, and capitalized his time with his second career sack.
In other injury news, Robert Woods may or may not be ready to return in time for Week 14. The Rams’ leading receiver is dealing with a shoulder issue that kept him sidelined in Week 12.
