If you tuned in late last night to the Eagles-Falcons game, you might have been wondering where all their offensive weapons were.

Wide receivers DeSean Jackson (above, groin) and Alshon Jeffery (calf) both exited in the first half, and tight end Dallas Goedert appeared to tweak his calf in warm-ups and did not play a snap.

Jackson walked with a slight limp as he left the locker room after the game. Jeffery declined to talk but nodded in the affirmative when asked if he would be OK.

Defensive tackle Tim Jernigan left the stadium in a walking boot after sustaining a foot injury in the first half. He had replaced Malik Jackson in the starting lineup after Jackson had a season-ending foot injury Week 1 against the Washington Redskins.

Quarterback Carson Wentz was evaluated for a concussion late in the first half and left the game briefly before being cleared to return. Wentz took issue with the process, as several minutes passed between when the previous series ended and when he was called to go into the blue medical tent for evaluation, forcing him to miss some snaps.

“Honestly, that was super frustrating,” he said after the game. “I came to the sideline and I was sitting there for about five minutes, and then they called down to go look at that. To me, that’s something they’ve got to figure out. … I think the league needs to look at that.”
