Big blow, I really like Bradley. Wish the Colts had him. The Eagles are the favorite in the NFC, but the defense has already lost Jim Johnson and now Bradley for the year and we haven't even reached the Hall of Fame game yet. Tough stuff.
I've read that Bradley was going to be the playcaller on the field and was stepping into the leadership role that Dawkins left behind...so yeah, that is really tough for Philly.
Kris Jenkins hasn't been practicing for a bit because of a left calf injury. Not shocking that the offense is having a much easier time blocking the interior DL without him there since there's nothing behind Jenkins. Apparently it went from the OL getting owned to the DL getting owned, all just because Jenks hasn't been playing.
Also, Leon Washington isn't really holding out. He's unhappy and wants a new contract (I hope he gets it and think he deserves it) but he's at camp. Given he's making like 535k this year and fines are 17k a day he really has no choice. Unfortunate, I think the team is using it's leverage a little too much and he may end up elsewhere after the season based on how he's being treated. Negotiations are still ongoing though, hopefully something gets done.
God damnit two positions we couldn't have hurt on defense both get dinged up.
Marlon Favourite ended up taking his place 60 pounds less and didn't even start at LSU.
Kemo is HUGE part of that defense literally (6'5" and 'listed' at 350 lbs.) and figuratively. Look what happened when he wasn't there, the Panthers defense got trampled by the Giants running game. And Beason? He is the leader of that defense and like I said earlier those injuries (hamstring) tend to linger a while.
