Barbre Listed as Week-to-Week with Hamstring Injury
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - The Eagles could be without Allen Barbre for a bit after the starting left guard strained his left hamstring in the first quarter of the Eagles’ 29-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.
Doug Pederson labeled Barbre as “week-to-week” on Monday and in the past when the coach has used that terminology (Zach Ertz, Bennie Logan), it’s meant multiple missed games.
Veteran Stefen Wisniewski would start next weekend against the New York Giants if Barbre is unable to go. Against Dallas, Wisniewski played 69 of Philadelphia’s 78 offensive snaps and held up pretty well.
“Wiz did well,” Pederson said. “He’s such a competitor, and he’s a pro. He really focuses in on his assignment, his jobs, and he’s itching to play. He got an opportunity to play, and he played well.”
In positive injury news Pederson indicated that nose tackle Bennie Logan is scheduled to return to practice on a limited basis this week after missing two games because of a groin injury.
“He should return to practice this week and get him some reps and (we will) see where he’s at,” Pederson said.
Elsewhere, special teams contributor Kamu Grugier Hill remains “week-to-week” with a right hamstring strain after missing the Cowboys’ game and defensive tackle Taylor Hart was also given that designation due to a right ankle injury suffered in practice last Thursday..
Quarterback Carson Wentz, meanwhile, is dealing with a calf injury that spasms but should be s “OK,” according to Pederson.
