The Philadelphia Eagles took some hits on Sunday against the Houston Texans. Several key players were injured with potentially season-ending injuries.

Quarterback Nick Foles suffered a broken collarbone, and he’s expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks. Last year, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had the same injury and missed 7 weeks.

Linebacker DeMeco Ryans had a torn Achilles in his return to Houston. He’s out for the rest of the season.

Now, guard Todd Herremans could be placed on injured reserve and miss the rest of the season. He has played through a biceps injury against the Texans.

He will undergo tests and may have surgery on his biceps. In the same game, he suffered an ankle issue, but the biceps is more severe.

The Eagles are considering shutting him down for the rest of the season.

If the Eagles do lose Herremans for the season, it’s a huge blow to their offensive line. Head coach Chip Kelly would have to fix the line by inserting a back-up, who he would hope that would play as good as Herremans has.

Herremans has been with the Eagles since the 2005 season when they selected him in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He’s been one of their best lineman during the tenures of Andy Reid and Kelly.
