Fantasy Pickups of the Week:

Eagles OT Herremans lands on IR

The SportsXchange

The Philadelphia Eagles' depleted offensive line took another hit Wednesday when offensive tackle Todd Herremans went on season-ending injury reserve.

Herremans hurt his right foot Monday night in the Eagles' loss to the New Orleans Saints. According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder said Herremans dislocated a bone in the foot, which caused damage to surrounding ligaments.

The Philadelphia offensive line already was missing All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters, center Jason Kelce and guard Danny Watkins. The Daily News reported that Peters was getting closer to a return from two Achilles operations performed in the offseason, but that he hadn't practiced Wednesday.

Demetress Bell will replace Todd Herremans as the starting right tackle. Bell started four games at left tackle earlier this season.

To replace Herremans on the roster, the Eagles promoted Julian Vandervelde from their practice squad. Vandervelde, 25, was a fifth-round draft pick of the Eagles in 2011. He was on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' practice squad for part of last season and this season.
