The Philadelphia Eagles used a generous portion of Tuesday's workday to address the team's dumpster fire along the offensive line.
The team announced that Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis was placed on the injured reserve-designated to return list with a sprained MCL. Philadelphia also tweeted that right tackle Allen Barbre has been lost for the year with an ankle injury. Barbre was filling in for the suspended Lane Johnson.
The loss of Mathis is especially crushing. A 16-game starter last season, the 32-year-old veteran is a centerpiece of Philly's athletic line and a staple in Chip Kelly's up-tempo attack.
