Despite having an extra day of rest in-between playing on Sunday Night Football in Dallas and Monday Night Football in Seattle, the Philadelphia Eagles have ruled out three starters for the game against the Seahawks.

The Eagles will try to break their two game losing streak without three starters on Monday Night: Linebacker Zach Cunningham, Right Guard Cam Jurgens, and Cornerback Darius Slay.  The news about Slay being unavailable for Monday Night was first reported earlier in the day on Saturday and confirmed at Head Coach Nick Sirianni's press conference.  Even thought the expectation is that one of the young Cornerbacks would fill in for the five-time Pro Bowl selection who had knee surgery, Sirianni would not specifically name a replacement starter for the man known as "Big Play Slay.

Even though Josh Jobe has played the most snaps of the young Cornerbacks on the Eagles roster this season (219), NFL Insider Adam Caplan from the Inside The Birds Podcast told The Sports Bash with Mike Gill on Friday that the most likely fill-in for Slay would be Eli Ricks.  Despite not starting any games this season, Ricks has played 167 snaps at multiple Defensive Secondary Positions due to injuries.  We could also see Fourth Round Pick Kelee Ringo get playing time as well against the Seahawks offense that has one of the best trio of Wide Receivers in the NFL.

Zach Cunningham will miss his second game in the last three weeks as he is dealing with a Knee injury.  Although we do not know for sure if the knee issue is on the same leg as the Hamstring Injury he sustained in the game versus the Bills, we can reasonably assume that this knee injury is not a coincidence.

Without Cunningham available on Monday night, we can expect to see more of recently signed Linebacker Shaq Leonard on the field Monday Night.  The three-time First team All-Pro Linebacker played only 17% of the defensive snaps in his first game for the Eagles on Sunday Night in Dallas.  In his nine games with the Indianapolis Colts this season, he compiled 34 Solo Tackles plus two Tackles for Loss.

Cam Jurgens has started eight of the Eagles' 13 games played this year and without  him the Eagles offense is averaging 364.6 Total Yards per game, compared to 392 Total Yards per game before Jurgens suffered his first injury this season.  After suffering a Foot Injury earlier this year, the 24-year old Interior Lineman will not miss Monday Night's game due to a Pectoral Injury.  The expectation is Sua Opeta will start at Right Guard when the Eagles play in Seattle on Monday Night.

If being without three starters was not enough "bad news" for the Eagles, there are multiple reports that the Philadelphia Eagles Head of Security Dom DiSandro has been banned from the Eagles' sidelines for the rest of the regular season.  DiSandro observed the Eagles game in Dallas on Sunday Night from the stadium tunnel and will probably do the same the next few weeks.  DiSandro is beloved by Eagles players and has worked for the Eagles since 1999.

The only "good news" for the Eagles ahead of Monday Night Football is that Safety Reed Blankenship will be back on the field starting at Safety.  The Undrafted Free Agent is in his second season with the Eagles, starting 15 games over the last two seasons.  He has 59 Solo Tackles and Two Interceptions this season for Philadelphia.

On the other side of the field, the Seattle Seahawks have listed three starters as Questionable for Monday Night: Quarterback Geno Smith, Linebacker Devon Witherspoon, and Safety Jamal Adams.  Without their starting Quarterback last week, the Seahawks offense scored just 16 points but the previous 12 games their offense averaged 22 Points Per Game this season.

The rookie Cornerback Witherspoon has played the third most Defensive Snaps for the Seahawks this season (779) but is dealing with a Hip Issue that could limit him on Monday Night.  Even though he has only started nine of the Seahawks 13 games this season, Adams is still a playmaker who is known to spontaneously come after the Quarterback from his Safety Position, compiling 19 Quarterback Hits over his four seasons in Seattle.
