Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who has played the last two games after rehabbing his wrecked left knee for nine months, has a problem.
He can’t stay upright.
In last week’s loss at the Titans, he was hit 11 times.
In his first two games, he has been sacked nine times!
The franchise quarterback won’t last very long unless he can get better protection from the O-line.
And it appears that coach Doug Pederson agrees:
Isaac Seumalo will likely replace Stefen Wisniewski as the Eagles’ starting left guard tomorrow against the Minnesota Vikings, Seumalo reportedly was informed of the decision earlier this week and has been taking most of the first-team reps at left guard.
Pederson declined to confirm that Seumalo would be replacing Wisniewski yesterday, but did acknowledge that the team has been encouraged by Seumalo’s progress and would be comfortable with him as a starter.
Seumalo, a former third-round pick, opened last season as the Eagles’ starting left guard. After a poor performance in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs, Seumalo was benched and eventually replaced by Wisniewski.
