An underestimated aspect of strikes and lockouts in professional sports is the impact that work stoppages can have on the careers of individual players.

When Major League Baseball went on strike in 1994, Matt Williams was on pace to break Roger Maris' home run record. It didn't happen, of course, and Williams missed his one shot at baseball immortality.

Al Harrington came out of high school to be drafted with the 25th pick in the 1998 NBA draft. He needed desperately to be around NBA players doing NBA activities at that impressionable point in his young career. The 1998 NBA lockout prevented that from happening and Harrington was a non-entity for five years at the beginning of his career.

Then there are guys like Derian Hatcher in the NHL.

Hatcher missed most of the 2003-2004 season and needed to come back strong in 2004-2005, aged 32. But there was no 2004-2005 season, and by the time Hatcher was playing NHL hockey again, his prime was behind him. He was never the same player.

And so with the NFL work stoppage looming large in the Philadelphia Eagles' future, here's a look at the 10 Eagles most likely to be hurt by losing part or all of the upcoming NFL season.
