It looks as though the Philadelphia Eagles have lost yet another starting offensive lineman, and if right tackle Todd Herremans does indeed have to miss time and Danny Watkins remains out, the Eagles will have just one healthy starting O-lineman from 2011.

Herremans suffered a foot/ankle injury Monday night in New Orleans and is now slated to undergo an MRI, according to CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher, who says "it's not looking good" for Michael Vick's blind-side protector. 

Demetress Bell performed horribly in place of Herremans Monday night. Without him and with Jason Peters and Jason Kelce already out, Vick stands little chance of bringing this offense back to save Philly's season. 

On to what else is being talked about in the league's most popular division...

Surprise, surprise. One of the team's "decision-makers" admitted to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer after Monday night's game that the decision to fire Juan Castillo was a "miscalculation."

From's Sheil Kapadia: Michael Vick's brother, Marcus, tweeted during Monday night's game that his brother needs to be traded to a team that can protect him better, but Michael had no idea and said he'd deal with it.
