When I entered in this headline, Safari's auto-complete was already entering "Marlin Jackson Out For Season", since I posted that article recently enough. Either way, it might not be all that surprising that Marlin Jackson got injured, but the nature of his injury and the timing is considerable -- he's ruptured his Achilles tendon, an injury that will surely keep him out for the year unless he's on the Clady timetable.
The bright spot in this for the Eagles is that Jackson ruptured his Achilles now and not in August or early September. That gives them the opportunity to shop for a safety and bring someone into camp. Perhaps they go for O.J. Atogwe on a one-year deal?
