The third iteration of the Eagles’ offensive line in as many weeks is now set.
Nate Herbig will be sliding over to left guard to replace Isaac Seumalo, and Matt Pryor will be taking over at right guard for Sunday’s home game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Coach Doug Pederson confirmed the position swaps during his Friday news conference, confirming what was apparent based on the lineman pairings during practice all week.
Seumalo, was placed on injured reserve earlier this week after suffering a knee injury against the Los Angeles Rams. Herbig and Pryor have been practicing with the first team during the individual drills this week, with Pryor working next to right tackle Lane Johnson and Herbig on the opposite side.
Herbig started the first two games of the season on the right side and appeared to be settling in just as the swap occurred. But Pederson said the Eagles have more confidence uprooting Herbig because of his experience playing several spots in practice.
