Eagles pass rushers hurting

Posted by Chris Brown on October 6, 2011 – 3:53 pm

While the news that Trent Cole is expected to miss Sunday’s game with a calf injury, his backups are not looking all that good for Sunday’s game either.

Darryl Tapp and Juqua Parker, who both have missed the last two games with a pectoral strain and a high ankle sprain are having trouble getting through the practice week. Tapp was a full participant Wednesday, but was limited Thursday. Meanwhile Parker was limited both Wednesday and Thursday.

The only other healthy pass rusher on the roster besides starter Jason Babin is rookie Phillip Hunt. Philadelphia may have to resort to lining up a linebacker at defensive end on obvious passing downs if neither Tapp and Parker are available Sunday.
