Eagles lose yet another offensive starter in 1st quarter

Already down four offensive starters coming into today, the Eagles are already down another one. 

In the first quarter, Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks left the game and walked into the locker room. Halapoulivaati Vaitai has replaced him at right guard. Brooks is questionable to return with an illness.

Brooks has been one of the Eagles' most reliable players this season. He was recently rewarded with a huge contract extension. After coming back from an Achilles tear, Brooks was on a pitch count in Week 1, but had played every snap since Week 2 until today. 

The right side of the Eagles' offensive line right now is Big V at right guard and rookie Andre Dillard at right tackle. Lane Johnson is out with a concussion. 

On the first drive with Big V at right guard, Carson Wentz fumbled the ball away. 

The Eagles came into Sunday without Johnson, Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Jordan Howard.
