The Eagles announced a worst-case scenario for veteran free agent defensive tackle Amon Gordon, who limped away from a drill last week. Achilles' tendon surgery Thursday seems likely to sideline Gordon for the duration. The Eagles brought in free agent rookie Trevor Jenkins this week to take Gordon's place.
Good news for Danny Klecko. An injury to Gordon brings his chances of being the #4 DT up quite a bit. While he would have always been the favorite for the job, Gordon’s early practices showed that Klecko didn’t necessarily have the job in the bag. Now, it looks inevitable that the DT rotation is Patt, Bunk, Laws, Kleck. The only wildcard is this rookie Trevor Jenkins… but having a second Trevor at DT might just be too confusing.
