For the second week in a row, an opposing wide receiver left an Eagles preseason game on the dreaded cart that only comes onto the field for potentially serious injuries.
This time it was Buffalo wide receiver Rod Streater down with teammates huddled around him, Streater in pain after suffering what the Bills said was a foot injury. Streater, 29, from Burlington Township, played for Temple. He is a former Raider, Chief and 49er.
Last week at Green Bay, Packers wide receiver Malachi Dupre left on the cart after taking a hard hit from safety Tre Sullivan. Dupre suffered a concussion.
The Eagles were 0-for-7 on third down in the first half … They ran 40 yards on 15 first-half carries, 24 of those coming on one burst by undrafted rookie Corey Clement. The other 14 runs netted 16 yards. This was not what Doug Pederson had in mind when he talked about doing a better job of establishing the run this week after a lackluster performance at Green Bay … Marcus Johnson, who missed the preseason opener with a hamstring injury, Thursday night flashed what observers have been seeing all through training camp when he blazed 38 yards on a second-quarter catch and run … Taylor Hart, the defensive end turned right offensive tackle, actually looked pretty good in that role … First-round rookie Derek Barnett notched another sack, in the third quarter, his third of the preseason … Former Villanova linebacker Don Cherry forced a fumble that corner C.J. Smith recovered.
