Philadelphia Eagles Suffers Setback as Two Key Players  Sustains Severe Injuries against Cowboys…

Dallas Goedert, the Philadelphia Eagles’ tight end, sustained a forearm injury during the third quarter of their game against the Cowboys and is now officially listed as questionable for a return.

Following the incident, Goedert headed directly to the X-ray room at Lincoln Financial Field after leaving the field. The injury occurred at the end of a 28-yard catch-and-run play during the Eagles’ scoring drive, which boosted their lead to 28-17. It appeared that Goedert’s right arm became trapped, and he landed awkwardly on it. As he made his way into the tunnel, his arm hung limply by his side.

In this particular game, Goedert had made 3 receptions on 4 targets, amassing a total of 50 yards. The 28-yard catch where the injury occurred marked his longest of the afternoon.

Before this game, Goedert had recorded 35 receptions for 360 yards and 2 touchdowns in eight games this season. It’s important to note that the Eagles were already missing their third-string tight end, Grant Calcaterra, who was sidelined due to a concussion from the previous week’s game against the Commanders. If Goedert doesn’t return, the Eagles will be left with Jack Stoll and Albert Okwuegbunam as their two remaining tight ends.

In a separate development, Eagles starting linebacker Nakobe Dean suffered a foot injury during the first half of the game against the Cowboys and has been ruled out for the remainder of the match.

Following his injury in the second quarter, Dean displayed visible frustration as he left the field. He vented his frustration by slamming his helmet on the sideline and then limped towards the locker room.

It’s worth noting that Dean had previously been placed on injured reserve earlier in the year due to a foot injury. Despite starting on Sunday, Dean had been part of a three-man rotation at linebacker alongside Nicholas Morrow and Zach Cunningham. With Dean out, Morrow and Cunningham are set to play the rest of the game.

This season has been challenging for Dean in terms of injuries, as he had suffered a foot injury in the season opener and missed four games while on injured reserve. In the three games since his return, Dean had been rotating with the other two linebackers, even before this latest injury.

In addition to Dean’s injury, the Eagles had several other players dealing with injuries in the first half, including quarterback Jalen Hurts, who was hit on his left knee late in the first half. Although he appeared to be in pain, Hurts remained in the game. Furthermore, a few defensive tackles, including Fletcher Cox, Jordan Davis, and Milton Williams, suffered injuries in the first half but managed to continue playing.
