Eagles likely lose Brodrick Bunkley for the season

Add another player to the growing list of injured Eagles: according to Andy Reid, defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley is likely out for the year. Bunkley, who suffered an elbow injury last night against the Niners, is going to have surgery on his elbow that should keep him sidelined for the rest of this year but will not end his career.

In Bunkley's absence, Antonio Dixon will likely step into a starting defensive tackle spot opposite of Mike Patterson. Dixon has been good in small doses so we will see if he can handle an expanded role. Look for the other backup DT, Trevor Laws, to also get some extra snaps with Bunkley out.

As for good Eagles injury news, Reid said that he expected concussion victims Asante Samuel and Riley Cooper to be ready to play next week against the Falcons. With the way the Eagles secondary looked against the Niners, Samuel is going to be needed if the Eagles want to contain Roddy White of Atlanta.

Remembering what the Silver eagles supplementary appeared against the Niners, Samuel will probably be necessary if the Silver eagles need to incorporate Roddy White regarding Atlanta.
