Eagles defensive end Darryl Tapp suffered a strained pectoral muscle during Sunday’s 31-13 victory over the Rams, head coach Andy Reid said on Monday through the Philadelphia Daily News.
“He tore it pretty good”, Reid said, adding it’s unlikely to be a long-term injury.
Tapp, who restructured his contract last week, registered three tackles, a sack and forced a fumble that was scooped and traveled to pay dirt by Juqua Parker for 56 yards.
In addition to playing defensive end, Tapp will aid on the interior to rush the quarterback in nickel situations. Parker could pick up some of those snaps if Tapp is sidelined due to injury.
