Eagles Suffer Huge Loss With Herremans Done for Year

Eagles Offensive Lineman Todd Herremans Is Lost for 2012The Eagles makeshift Offensive Line will get more makeshift for the rest of 2012 as All-Pro Offensive Tackle Todd Herremans is done for the rest of the regular season with a¬†dislocated bone along with more fractures to go with tendon & ligament damage. This leaves just 1 of the Eagles offensive line members to be starting this week out of the 5 that were the Eagles intention. Danny Watkins is not out of the season but so far has not practiced since suffering an ankle injury weeks ago. Jason Peters blew his knee out twice in a 3 month period but he could possibly still come back for the team this season although the team’s record doesn’t indicate it is likely. Jason Kelce tore his ACL & MCL against Baltimore. That leaves only Evan Mathis as the lone starter remaining. Demetress Bell will take over at left tackle while King Dunlap will slide to right tackle. Dennis Kelly is expected to start at right guard again in place of Watkins again and Mathis & Dallas Reynolds will stay in their current spots.

It is not known if surgery is going to be scheduled anytime soon but the expectation is that he will be able to play again next year for the Eagles. Before the season Herremans signed a 3-year extension meaning he will be with the Eagles until 2016.

Julian Vandervelde will take Herremans spot on the roster as he was signed from the practice squad today.
