Tell Chris your opinion.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jerome McDougle injured his right triceps in the team's preseason opener and will likely be out for the rest of the season. McDougle was competing for a starting role on the team's defensive line. If he wasn't going to be a starter, the team may have ended up cutting him. Regardless, it's a shame that he won't have the opportunity now.

"He was competing like a lot of other guys," said defensive coordinator Jim Johnson. "It's too bad. He was having a good camp. But that's part of the game."

The Eagles drafted McDougle with the 15th overall pick in the 2003 raft. He has had numerous injuries in his career, and has never had the opportunity to shine. Last year, he only had one sack and 13 tackles in 14 games.

Meanwhile, the team received bad news also involving running back Ryan Moats, who could miss the season with an ankle injury. Moats, a third-round pick in 2005, broke his ankle during a play in the second half and will have surgery soon. He didn't receive much playing time with the team and was competing for a roster spot.
