Eagles lose Jamaal Jackson for the season

The plight of the Eagles offensive line continues. Just when the group started to gain some consistency and develop some real chemistry, they lose their anchor: center Jamaal Jackson will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL.

Jackson, who had started 70 straight regular season games, injured his leg yesterday in the win over the Broncos. An MRI today revealed the tear that will keep him out until at least the preseason next year.

While Jackson is their best offensive lineman, the Eagles do fortunately have some quality depth along the offensive line. Nick Cole will move from right guard to center and should be solid there. Starting at right guard will likely be Max Jean-Gilles, although Andy Reid has already said that the much beleaguered Stacy Andrews could see some time there as well. Andrews has been a major disappointment this year and has been a healthy scratch for the last few weeks. Him getting his act together would go a long way towards the Eagles not missing Jackson that much.
