To say that the Philadelphia Eagles offense has been unlucky when it comes to injuries in the 2012 season is to put the situation mildly. The o-line has been decimated by injuries, Mike Vick and LeSean McCoy are struggling to recover from concussions, and another key weapon was added to the list on Tuesday: DeSean Jackson.
Head coach Andy Reid said the wideout was placed on IR after suffering fractures to ribs in the first quarter of the Monday Night Football contest against the Carolina Panthers, ending his season. Jackson finished the season with a disappointing 45 catches for 700 yards and 2 touchdowns.
In related news, Reid also revealed on Tuesday that Jason Peters is also headed to IR. He had previously been placed on the non-football injury list.
It doesn’t like the Eagles offense will catch a break anytime soon as the injuries continue to pile up.

It is believed...
We’re told by Philly fans that this is what happens when you buy your football jersey in the parking lot before a game. Anyway, this guy is one day closer to no Andy Reid, no Michael Vick, and a top-5 draft pick. Carolina walked into the Linc on Monday Night Football and won, 30-22, which ties Philly with Carolina for the worst record in the NFC.
As for your...

Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 12 in the National Football League! Robert Griffin III put on a Thanksgiving show that I’m sure we will be talking about for sometime.
We found out Nick Foles will be the quarterback at least one more week.
DeSean Jackson could miss the rest of the season.
Jason Avant is better physically than Jackson, but still might be ready this week.
