Not only are the Eagles off to a 1-3 start after blowing a second-half lead against the 49ers yesterday, but they're also getting banged up in a big way. 

The team's top defensive player, pass rusher Trent Cole, is out with what head coach Andy Reid says is a "fairly significant" injury. Cole suffered a severe calf strain in the loss. 

What's more, left tackle Jason Peters suffered a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter that Reid also terms "fairly significant." 

In a word: ouch.
