While it's been widely speculated and reported that Philadelphia Eagles starting DT Brodrick Bunkley will miss the rest of the season, a source told FOXSports.com that may not be the case. It's not currently known how much time Bunkley will miss as a result of the elbow injury he suffered during the first half of Sunday's win at the San Francisco 49ers. All that's currently known is he's expected to miss at least this Sunday's home game against the Atlanta Falcons. Second-year DT Antonio Dixon is likely to start for Bunkley this week. He handled most of the snaps in his place against the 49ers. Dixon saw roughly 30 snaps against San Francisco. Dixon, according to a source, is believed to be the strongest defensive lineman on Philadelphia's roster. Third-year DT Trevor Laws, who saw close to 30 snaps as well last week, will split time with Dixon.
Philadelphia has not announced any roster moves as of early Tuesday evening, but the indication earlier in the day was that they would be signing rookie DT Jeff Owens off their practice squad to provide depth for the interior of their defensive line.
As first reported by FOXSports.com on Tuesday morning, the Eagles were scheduled to work out WR Kelley Washington. They worked him out, a source said, and had DE Pannel Egboh in for a visit. Egboh spent time with Philadelphia in the preseason and was waived on Sept. 3.
