Barwin (bone bruise) will not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin isn't a likely candidate to miss Monday's contest against the Packers, but he figures to miss some practice time in order to heal the bothersome bone bruise. Marcus Smith and Vinny Curry figure to see additional reps with Barwin sidelined for the time being.

Barwin is dealing with a bruised bone, Philly.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles were ravaged by injury Sunday against the Seahawks, but Barwin is likely one of the most fortunate players to have gone down as his bone bruise isn't expected to prevent him from playing in this weekend's game against the Packers.

Barwin recorded a sack, his seventh of the year, in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin's sack production was halved from last season to this year, as the Eagles' defense on the whole was less effective in pressuring opposing quarterbacks. He still piled up 45 tackles and seven passes defensed, but he only forced one fumble and didn't come up with an interception. Ultimately, the stud linebacker didn't live up to his preseason expectations.

Barwin recorded a sack and four tackles in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin dropped the same stat line in back-to-back weeks, and now has two sacks on the year. He has been used plenty in defensive coordinator Bill Davis's pass rushes so far this season, and has looked just as strong as he did in 2014. He's likely limited to one sack per game unless he has another October outburst, but Barwin is a consistent playmaker to keep an eye on.

Barwin picked up a sack and four tackles in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin, who set a career-high with 14.5 sacks last season, picked up his first of the season against Dallas. He's officially on pace for eight sacks this year, although we know sacks tend to come in streaks and bunches. Barwin is an intriguing IDP; if the Eagles' offense can fix its problems, the team's defensive front seven is strong. But if the defense continues to spend 40 minutes on the field, Barwin and the rest of the defense will start to wear down and the playmaking ability won't always be there.

Barwin picked up four tackles and a pass defensed in Monday's 26-24 loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin continues to be a consistent tackler, but his big-play potential has been missing as of late. He didn't record a sack during the preseason, nor during the first game of the 2015 season, after recording a career-high 14.5 last year.

Barwin recorded five tackles, including one for a loss, in Saturday's 39-26 win over the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin hasn't recorded many big-point plays this preseason, but he's been near the top of the stat sheet in tackles in each of the team's first three preseason games. He stays around the ball, which bodes well for sacks, fumbles and knockdowns, all of which he brought to the table last season. Barwin remains a sensible IDP selection after his 14.5-sack campaign in 2014.

Barwin finished the 2014 season with 64 tackles (47 solo), 14.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in 16 games.

Barwin's 2014 was a smashing success and easily the best of his career. He's obviously a very good fit in defensive coordinator Billy Davis' scheme, and he'll be back as the team's lead edge defender in 2015. It would probably be best to expect more modest production from Barwin in 2015, however -- he totaled just eight sacks over two years the last time he posted double-digit sacks (11.5 in 2011).
