Sunday marked Eagles C Jamaal Jackson's return to the field, just eight months after tearing the ACL in his left knee. Now it looks like Jackson will have to miss the 2010 season after tearing his right biceps muscle in the season opener. Reports indicate the injury will sideline Jackson for the season.

Jackson left with 8:27 left in the game against Green Bay and wasn't available to reporters afterward. Jackson started every game but one the past four seasons for the Eagles. Mike McGlynn replaced the seven-year veteran from Delaware State. McGlynn started at center the entire preseason.

The way we see it

This would be another blow to the Eagles' front line on offense. They also lost Pro Bowl FB Leonard Weaver to a torn ACL during the loss to the Packers.

McGlynn is a three-year veteran from Pittsburgh and got experience with the first team in the preseason, but he does not have the veteran leadership that Jackson provides. It's also a tough setback for Jackson who battled all offseason for the chance to play the 2010 season opener.
