Injury Update: Dorenbos' Season Ends


The Eagles not only came out of Sunday's game disappointed by the final result, but they also came out of the 27-22 loss to Washington with a few key injuries.

The toughest blow for the Eagles is the loss of Jon Dorenbos, who will be placed on Injured Reserve after undergoing wrist surgery on Sunday evening. Dorenbos, who injured his wrist on a punt play, had just tied Harold Carmichael for the most consecutive games played in Eagles history at 162.

The Eagles also suffered another injury on the offense line, as reserve lineman Matt Tobin suffered an MCL sprain. Fellow lineman Halapoulivaati Vaitai has been recovering well, according to head coach Doug Pederson, so there's a chance he could still play again this season.

Meanwhile, Darren Sproles is in the league's concussion protocol after taking a vicious hit form Deshazor Everett while trying to field a punt. Another Eagles back was also injured, as Wendell Smallwood suffered a knee injury that could ultimately land him on Injured Reserve.

On defense, safety Jaylen Watkins ruptured a tendon in his left hand and will get an MRI to provide further details.

As for Allen Barbre (hamstring strain) and Brent Celek (stinger), Pederson explained that they should both be good for Sunday's game against Baltimore, but they will both be held out of practice on Wednesday as a precaution.

Guard Brandon Brooks also missed Sunday's game with an illness, but Pederson explained that he and wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham (abdomen) should be able to play on Sunday.
