The Eagles knew that injured Pro Bowl players defensive end Trent Cole and left tackle Jason Peters would be out this week. And now both have been listed officially as out for Sunday’s game against the Bills.
They’ll most likely be out next week as well, with the hope to return after the bye in Week 7.
The team did get some good news though, with defensive ends Juqua Parker and Darryl Tapp both likely to return on Sunday. Parker has been out since hurting his ankle against the Falcons, and Tapp has missed the past three weeks after suffering a partial pec tear against the Rams in Week 1.
Both practiced fully on Friday and should be able to help plug the massive hole left by Cole’s absence.
Unfortunately, King “Olé” Dunlap will still be filling in for Peters at left tackle.
