Eagles C Jason Kelce reportedly needs surgery to repair a hernia.

It's the latest blow to a mangled Eagles offensive line. Kelce will reportedly be out 6-8 weeks, leaving David Molk to step in at center.

Better hope Peters isn't suspended for next week then.

Guys I'm not going to lie. Its about to get ugly for the Eagles if indeed Kelce is out for two months with a Sports Hernia. I could argue losing him might be worse then Peters. He is probably the best Center in the league, the Oline general and pretty much irreplaceable IMO.

Having lost Mathis already who could also be considered the best OG in the NFL I see Foles taking the type of beating he had last night the rest of the season. Think Vick 2012! This season is starting to look a lot like GB after the SB. Starter after Starter going down. Here's hoping Molk is some kind of hidden jem like Kelce was and somehow Tobin, Lane and Kelly step up in the weeks to come. Not liking this at all.

It's a big loss, don't get me wrong Nabbs, but Peters is still far and away the best player on the o-line. Seriously, watch him for an entire drive sometime, it is a spectacle. From pass protection, sealing the edge, simply putting the dlineman on skates to even getting to the second level, he does it all. He would be the biggest loss for sure.

Kelce definitely 2nd biggest asset on our line though, love his hustle and agility.

Molk is bad. At least it's only one more game without Lane. Also when is Mathis due back?

Looks like it's Shotgun mode and 2 TE's in at all times next game. Laughing

Eff it, just put Sanchez or Barkley in next game. With that O-line, he's in for a rough day.

Well, at least we only have one division game in the next 9 weeks. There's a realistic shot we'll have everyone back for the critical 5 week stretch at the end of the season:

@ Dallas (Thanksgiving)
vs Seattle
vs Dallas
@ Washington
@ NYG

Although everything you praised Peters for is absolutely true without question the same exact thing can be said for Kelce's play. The difference between the two losses is we have NOTHING to replace what Kelce meant to this team, Molk is trash. Losing Peters too would be catastrophic as well but at least there would be guys like Tobin, Lane and Herremans who could slide over and do maybe an adequate job. Now all of the protection calls will be made by Molk. About to get Ugly I'm telling you.

Mathis is eligible to return in week 10.

This is really bad news.... Our line was pathetic yesterday, and we are down to only two starters next week against the niners.

Kelce is basically irreplaceable. Molk has to be the worst lineman I have seen on the Eagles in at least a few years, and he was getting beat right up the middle all day yesterday.

Getting Lane back next week is even more important now We really need Tobin to step up at OG now. If we can surround Molk with a capable OL, we should be able to at least get a push in the running game and not get Nick killed by week 8.

I guess we were just destined to get beat up this year after being so healthy last year. We really need to get Kendricks back as well.

If Chip sat Foles this week as a precaution, I would not be mad.

I'm not Kelce's biggest fan, but even I know he's going to be a big miss. He basically makes so much of our offense go by getting to the second level and/or pulling.

We could really do with some healthy linemen.

Mathis can come back for Week 10 against the Panthers at the earliest.

Kelce's injury will likely keep him out 6 to 8 weeks. So the 6 week scenario has him out until the Week 10 game against the Panthers. And the 8 week scenario has him out until the Week 12 game against the Titans.

Next week will be the toughest test with just Peters and Herremans being the only original starters from the start of the year.

But we'll get Lane Johnson back for Week 5 against the Rams.

I can deal with just Peters, Herremans, and Johnson for games against the Rams, Giants, Cardinals, and Texans.

We should be able to beat the Rams, Giants, and Texans with only those 3 starters on the line and a couple other backups. That leaves two very tough tests against the 49ers and Cardinals until we can start to expect Kelce and Mathis back.

I was really really worried initially but now I think we can stay afloat. However, another injury to Peters or Herremans or Johnson puts us in an awful situation.

Might be time to call Eric Winston again.
