Evan Mathis To Have MRI Monday

Eagles’ left guard Evan Mathis injured his knee when running back LeSean McCoy was tackled into him during the team’s 34-17 victory over the Jaguars. He will have an MRI on Monday morning, reports Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com.

Mathis has started 47 games for the Eagles since arriving in 2011, after coming in and out of the lineup with the Panthers and Bengals. He was named to the All Pro team in 2013, as one of the best offensive linemen in the league.

Andrew Gardner replaced Mathis until right tackle Allen Barbre had to leave the game with an injury as well. Gardner then moved to tackle while David Molk took over duties at Mathis’ spot. The team is already without last year’s first-round pick Lane Johnson, who will miss four games while serving a suspension.

The team is extremely thin along the offensive line at the moment, and with very few options available, the Eagles will hope Mathis’ injury turns out not to be very serious.
