Eagles RG Cam Jurgens

In the Philadelphia Eagles' Week 4 win over the Washington Commanders, starting RG Cam Jurgens injured his foot and did not return to the field. He was in a walking boot in the locker room after the game. According to a report from Jeff McLane of the Inquirer, Jurgens has a foot sprain that could cause him to miss several weeks.

To be determined if Jurgens' injury is severe enough for him to land on injured reserve. Backup guard Sua Opeta replaced Jurgens in the lineup on Sunday, and according to Nick Sirianni, he played well.

"I thought [Opeta] played outstanding yesterday," Sirianni said. "I mean, outstanding. I thought we all felt that in the game, and then you watch it on tape and you can verify that. Even Lane [Johnson] came up to me in the locker room after the game... and was singing the praises of Sua."

Expect Opeta to start going forward, not third-round rookie Tyler Steen.

The Eagles will be facing a whole lot of opponents with outstanding interior defensive linemen in October.

• Week 5: At Rams, Aaron Donald 
• Week 6: At Jets, Quinnen Williams
• Week 7: Dolphins, Christian Wilkins
• Week 8: At Commanders, Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne

In other words, it's not an ideal time to lose an interior offensive lineman. #Analysis.
