The Philadelphia Eagles will face one of the NFL's better defenses while at less than full strength on offense.
The team announced Friday that wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (hip), left tackle King Dunlap (hamstring), and Riley Cooper (collarbone) all are out for Sunday's game at University of Phoenix Stadium against the Arizona Cardinals.
Demetress Bell held up fairly well replacing Dunlap last week. Bell was signed with the idea that he'd start for the Eagles. With Maclin and Cooper out, rookie Damaris Johnson and Jason Avant should have bigger roles. The Cardinals' defense will be able to focus more on stopping LeSean McCoy and the Eagles' running game. (Yes, Andy Reid allows an Eagles running game.)Follow Gregg Rosenthal on Twitter @greggrosenthal.
