In advance of the Eagles-Falcons game on Sunday Night Football both teams lost some important pieces in the trenches.

Falcons OG Chris Lindstrom is out until at least week 10, while Eagles DT Malik Jackson is likely out for the season.

Former Eagles and Falcons Linebacker and current WIP afternoon host Ike Reese spoke with John Fricke and Hugh Douglas about who on the line needs to step up with Jackson out.

"I'll tell you who had a quietly good game last week was Derek Barnett. We lost Malik Jackson for the year, when you go back and look at the film, Barnett had an effective game," says Ike. "He drew two holding penalties which is just as good as a sack, so he brought some pressure in the 2nd half of the game last week and the Falcons have some issues on the offensive line.
