Injury Recap: Broken Rib For Tapp

Head coach Andy Reid announced at his press conference on Monday that defensive end Darryl Tapp suffered a broken rib on the safety that the Eagles scored midway through the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over Miami. Initial X-rays taken at SunLife Stadium were negative, but an MRI showed that he suffered a broken rib.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin's hamstring tightened during the game and had to come out. Riley Cooper replaced Maclin on the field. Reid said that Maclin is doing OK on Monday.

During the game, guard Todd Herremans suffered a sprained ankle and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins incurred a strained groin. Also, running back Ronnie Brown suffered a slight hamstring strain on the offense's final play of the game.

Wide receiver Steve Smith was inactive for Sunday's game. The knee that Smith injured in 2010 swelled up on the team flight and an MRI revealed a deep bone bruise.
