King Dunlap to replace Demetress Bell at left tackle for Eagles

A source told CSN Philly's Reuben Frank that Demetress Bell will be replaced by King Dunlap at left tackle to help shore up a struggling offensive line. Jason Peters may be able to return in several weeks from an offseason Achilles injury.

Dunlap, now in his fifth year with the Eagles, started the first two games of the season at left tackle after replacing a struggling Bell in the starting lineup following the first preseason game. He’ll make his third start of the year Sunday, when the Eagles return from their bye week to face the undefeated Falcons at the Linc.
Dunlap suffered a hamstring injury in the third quarter of the Ravens game and was in turn replaced by Bell. Dunlap was inactive for the Cards and Giants and played only on special teams against the Steelers (seven snaps) and Lions (11 snaps).
The rest of Frank's story is available at CSN Philly.
