Eagles suffer huge injury, seek last second trade for a TE.

Post by Xedo19 on Mon Mar 17, 2014 6:36 am

Just days after trading away their talented 2nd string TE Zach Ertz to the Seahawks to bolster their defense, the Eagles are already regretting the decision. During their blowout of the San Fransisco 49ers, talented TE Coby Fleener (aquired recently in a trade from Indianapolis) was taken from the field in what appeared to be a minor injury. Speculation was that it would be a week off, but now an MRI has revealed an upper arm fracture that was worse than originally believed. Coby Fleener will now miss the following 6 weeks, hopefully returning for the very end of the regular season. The Eagles front office is left shaking their heads after entering the season with one of the deepest TE groups in the NFL, James Casey, Brent Celek and Zach Ertz. They're now all gone and the stud they traded for is on the shelf with some very big games coming up against fellow unbeatens in Seattle and divisional rivals the Dallas Cowboys. Coach Ditka has said that Philly will look for a free agent to fill the void as right now Philly has 2 developmental backups, and they will pursue a trade for a cheap stopgap, but time is quickly running out on that as the trade deadline looms, less than 24 hours away. Can the Philadelphia Eagles overcome this ironic twist? Check back in a few weeks to find out.

Marcedes Lewis is available as a viable stopgap
