The Philadelphia Eagles' offensive line took a major injury hit in Week 4's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Starting left tackle Jordan Mailata went down with a shoulder injury early in the contest, and initial reports suggested somewhat of a lengthy recovery process.

Fortunately, the latest update took a massive turn for Philadelphia.

Jordan Mailata Injury Update

Eagles insider Eliot Shorr-Parks reported a conversation he had with Mailata. The third-year left tackle called himself "day-to-day" with the current ailment. He also met with doctors and asked about the potential length of his absence, to which they replied he may not miss any games at all.

This is just a few days after the Eagles signed Tyrese Robinson to the practice squad. Many in Philadelphia's camp believed this to be a sign of serious injury for Mailata.

Eagles fans should pay close attention to the weekly injury report. At this point, Mailata may be a game-time decision. His loss would be felt for a Philadelphia line playing average football through the first four weeks. The Eagles rate middle-of-the-pack in pass protection, allowing the 13th-most sacks (9) and 12-highest sack rate.

Philadelphia looks to remain undefeated in its Week 5 clash with the Arizona Cardinals. The Eagles enter this matchup as solid 5.5-point road favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
