Snap Counts: The Complete Breakdown at Eagles’ Rotating Left Guard

[CSNPhily] Snap counts: The complete breakdown at rotating left guard
Dave Zangaro |

It was the worst kept secret in Philadelphia over the last week. We all knew Chance Warmack was starting over Isaac Seumalo at left guard but the Eagles didn't announce it until they absolutely had to. 

But it isn't just Warmack's job either.

While Warmack started the game at left guard, the Eagles rotated at the position in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Giants. And Stefen Wisniewski actually played more. Wiz got 44 of 76 possible snaps (58 percent), while Warmack played the other 32. 

According to Doug Pederson, rotating at LG was the plan going into the game. The rotation was based on performance. We'll see if Wiz did enough to solidify his spot. 

Seumalo didn't get on the field on offense. It's the first time in his NFL career that he has been active and didn't get a snap on offense. 

Jason Peters missed one snap but the other three O-linemen and Carson Wentz played all 76 snaps. 

At running back, Wendell Smallwood led the way with 43 snaps (57 percent) - the most of his career. He led the way on the stat sheet too, carrying the ball 12 times for 71 yards. LeGarrette Blount got 22 snaps and had 12 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown. Corey Clement played seven offensive snaps after coming into the game with just one in his career. He made the most of them, rushing six times for 22 yards and a touchdown. Darren Sproles played five snaps before leaving with a wrist injury. 

On defense, Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Maragos, Nigel Bradham, Jalen Mills and Rasul Douglas all played the entire game, 69 snaps. Maragos played just one defensive snap all last season but thanks to injuries to Rodney McLeod, Corey Graham and Jaylen Watkins, he was thrust into action. 

Fletcher Cox played 17 snaps before leaving with a calf injury and Jordan Hicks played 14 before leaving with an ankle injury. With Cox gone, Beau Allen filled in, playing 50 snaps, his most since the first Dallas game last year. Without Hicks, Mychal Kendricks played 48 snaps. 

Joe Walker played just three defensive snaps but one of them was that huge fourth-down stop in the second quarter. He helped finish the tackle with Vinny Curry.

Eric Rowe tracker 
We are keeping an eye on Rowe in New England all season. If he plays more than 50 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps this season, that 2018 fourth-round pick the Eagles got in exchange for him will turn into a third-rounder. 

On Sunday, Rowe was inactive with a groin injury in the Patriots' 36-33 win over the Texans. That's obviously not good for the Eagles. 

Week 1: 37 of 69 snaps
Week 2: 34 of 65 snaps
Week 3: 0 of 71 snaps

2017: 71 of 205 (34.6 percent). 

Still a lot of time left.
