Brodrick Bunkley Injured In Eagles Win, Could Be Done For The Year

On his weekly radio show Eagles head coach Andy Reid announced that DT Brodrick Bunkley will require surgery on his elbow and could be done for the year.

“He’s going to have to have surgery on that elbow,” Reid said. “That’s not a good thing. He had ligament damage in there. The nerve to where your funny bone is, that nerve shifted and so they have to go in and straighten it out. It’s not a career-ending thing, but it’s going to take time to get him back.”

Tough blow for an already suspect Eagles defense. I suppose the silver lining here is that DTs Trevor Laws and Antonio Dixon have played well in the rotation. So while they’ve lost a starter, it’s a position of relative depth.

Philadelphia Eagles Hold On For 27-24 Win Over San Francisco 49ers

It wasn’t pretty, but the Philadelphia Eagles went on the road and got a big win over the San Francisco 49ers. The win puts them at 3-2, which ties the Eagles at the top of the NFC East with the Redskins and Giants. Dallas lags in last at 1-3.

The 49ers were driving in the final 30 seconds, needing just a FG to send the game to overtime. On a 3rd and 10 from the Eagles 44 yard line, 49ers QB Alex Smith was hit by Trevor Laws as he threw and the ball was lofted up for an easy pick by rookie CB Trevard Lindley. It was the 5th turnover of the night forced by an Eagles defense that made big plays, but struggled to stop the leagues second worst offense overall.

On offense, the story was the play of LeSean McCoy and resurgence of Kevin Kolb. In his fourth career start Kolb bounced back from last week’s loss to deliver a 253 yard, 1 TD performance where completed 67& of his passes. Plus, he was under pressure all night after Jason Peters left with an elbow strain and backup LT King Dunlap struggled. Kolb finished the evening with a 103.3 QB rating.

That said, the Eagles best offensive player tonight was LeSean McCoy. Shady rushed for 92 yards, including a dazzling 29 yard TD. He also added 5 catches, accounting for 138 yards of total offense.

Not a pretty win, but an important win. The Eagles host the Falcons next week at Lincoln Financial Field, where they’ve yet to win this season.

Eagles Vs 49ers: Eagles Take 17-10 Lead Into The Half

This game game didn’t start out well for the Eagles, but sine the 49ers first drive things have gone pretty well.

The Niners marched straight down the field on their first possession with an impressive 7+ minute drive that resulted in a Michael Crabtree TD pass. The Eagles offense would respond with a perfect 9-9 drive from Kevin Kolb that ended in a Brent Celek TD pass.

Then the 49ers started to get sloppy. A Frank Gore fumble forced by a big hit from newly installed starting SAM Moise Fokou led to an Eagles FG. Then an Alex Smith threw a bad pick when the 49es were driving. A few series later, DeSean Jackson had a nice punt return to give the Eagles good field position on a drive that ended in a dazzling 30 yard TD run from LeSean McCoy.

The Eagles offense started to really struggle as protection started to break down in the 2nd quarter, mostly thanks to King Dunlap who is filling in for Jason Peters, who was injured on the Eagles first drive.

The 49ers would add a FG late, then Kevin Kolb fumbled(after being hit by King Dunlap’s man) giving the 49ers great field position for 3 more points before the end of the half. Then luck went the Eagles way as Joe Nedney pulled the kick wide right.

The Eagles go into the half up 17-10

Eagles Vs 49ers: LeSean McCoy Will Play Sunday

LeSean McCoy cracked a rib in the first half of last week’s game against the Redskins, he went on to have a very productive second half… This week he looked like he might be a doubt to play on Sunday after missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday. However, he was a full participant in practice on Friday and declared himself ready play.

“I feel good. I feel ready to go. Very excited to get out there and play some football. It’s another game for us.”

Andy Reid also said he expects McCoy to play, “I’m anticipating that he’ll be able to play the full game and do what he needs to do there.”
