The Philadelphia Eagles’ injured reserve list continues to grow.
Defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu was the latest player to be added, and will miss the remainder of the 2022-2023 season.
MARLON TUIPULOTU LANDS ON IR
The Philadelphia Eagles lost their first game of the season in Week 10 against the Washington Commanders. Unfortunately they also lost tight end Dallas Goedert to a shoulder injury, and now defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu.
During last Monday’s game, Tuipulotu was injured early in the game. Though he continued to play, it was later reported that he suffered a torn meniscus. He was placed on injured reserve the following day.
Sources stated that Tuipulotu would be eligible to return in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans; however, he is now expected to miss the remainder of the regular season. He is scheduled to undergo knee surgery.
“We felt really good about Marlon, the things that he was doing, the camp that he had, the games that he playing in, everything — we felt really good about him,” head coach Nick Sirianni stated. “He played through a lot of the pain that he was having. He toughed that out, which is awesome. He played through. He kept going, which is pretty impressive from him on his part.”
Tuipulotu has been with the Eagles over the last two seasons, joining as a sixth-round pick in 2021. He’s completed a tackle in every game, totaling five (a career-high) and a fumble recovery against the Commanders last Monday.
The Eagles also lost defensive tackle Jordan Davis to an ankle injury. Though Davis is expected to return, Philadelphia added veteran tackles Ndamukong Suh and Linval Joseph to their roster last week. Both played against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Suh finished with three total tackles and 0.5 sacks, Joseph completed four tackles and 0.5 sacks.
