Well, it isn’t getting any easier for Philadelphia Eagles fans.

Three weeks have gone by, and without even looking at the Philadelphia Eagles injury report, here’s a guess. After all, who wants to look at the injury report, right? It’s depressing, but here’s the thing. It feels like this team loses three guys a week, or they’re shuffled in and out, or guys can’t start. Whatever.

Here’s where we are. The ‘Birds’ have two guys on the team’s physically unable to perform list: Brandon Brooks and Daeshon Hall. On Sunday, Philly had six guys on the IR. Then, Avonte Maddox, DeSean Jackson, Dallas Goedert, and Jason Peters all limped off during what might be the most infamous tie in team history.

Monday, came and we learned DeSean might be able to play on Sunday night in Week 4 despite a hamstring issue. That isn’t promising. Peters will be fine too. He was simply fatigued. No seriously. That was it. In the most crucial point of the game, one of the highest-paid linemen that Philly has available couldn’t go (one who plays one of the two most important positions on the line). What’s sad is that is probably going to occur a lot this season. The guy is old.

Regardless of what happens roster-wise, the ‘Birds’ have a game to play on Sunday. To some of you, the news that Carson Wentz is still starting and Doug Pederson is still calling plays is disturbing. It is what it is though. Certainly, this team needs something exciting to happen, and they players to make that happen. Tuesday and Wednesday were busy days as they announced a few roster moves. Here are three of the highlights and one thought on each transaction.
