I can see the Eagles making some changes this weekend, but here’s one I didn’t expect, via Dave Zangaro over at NBC Sports Philadelphia:
League sources indicated that Seumalo has been getting at least some first-team reps this week in practice, so there’s a good chance the Eagles have already seriously contemplated a move.
Even in the portion of practice open to reporters on Wednesday and Thursday, Seumalo took first-team reps at left guard next to Jason Peters and Jason Kelce.
Zack Rosenblatt at NJ.Com is also reporting this:
The Eagles offensive line has struggled recently, and now some changes are in order.
Isaac Seumalo will likely replace Stefen Wisniewski as the Eagles’ starting left guard on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, a person familiar with the situation told NJ Advance Media. Seumalo was informed of the decision earlier this week and has been taking most of the first-team reps at left guard.
The offensive line has not been great through four weeks, but I don’t know if swapping Seumalo for Wis is the magic bullet here. Who knows?
Doug Pederson wouldn’t confirm any personnel changes this weekend during his Friday press conference, but I think a lot of people are hoping for a different look in the defensive backfield when “Kurt” Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings come to town.
