Isaac Seumalo by the bench during the Philadelphia Eagles game against the LA Rams at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on September 20, 2020.

In his Monday morning press conference, Doug Pederson said that starting LG Isaac Seumalo would be heading to short-term injured reserve.

Seumalo injured his knee during the second quarter of the Eagles' matchup against the Rams, and missed the rest of the game. Matt Pryor filled in for Seumalo.

The Eagles now have three starting offensive linemen who are either on IR, or the PUP list.

  1. RG Brandon Brooks (PUP): Almost certainly done for the season.
  2. LT Andre Dillard (season-ending IR): Done for the season.
  3. LG Isaac Seumalo (short-term IR): Will miss at least three games (CIN, @SF, @PIT). To be determined if his absence will be longer.

The Eagles' offensive line versions (some perceived) since May.
