Eagles lose two starting offensive tackles to injury in Week 8

Jason Peters

The Philadelphia Eagles suffered some significant losses early in their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, as two starting offensive linemen were forced to leave with injuries.

Former first-round pick Lane Johnson was carted off in the first quarter with a knee injury. Then in the second quarter, nine-time Pro Bowler Jason Peters also left the game after he suffered a head injury. The Eagles announced that both players were questionable to return.

The Jaguars sacked Carson Wentz twice and hit him six times in the first half. They also forced a Wentz fumble and had an interception, so the loss of Johnson and Peters appeared to be a factor.

Peters is already playing through a significant injury this season, and Johnson has been banged up as well. Both players have been dependable starters in Philly for several seasons.
