Buffalo Bills v Philadelphia Eagles

If you were looking for the perfect omen of things to come for the Eagles and their fans this season…I think it’s finally arrived.

Prior to their preseason game against the Steelers on Thursday, kicker Caleb Sturgis was walking around helmetless when he got clocked by an errant punt that shot off the foot of teammate Donnie Jones.

NFL reporters, God bless them, managed to convey the news with a straight face via Twitter:

Concussions aren’t funny. But bad things happening to the Eagles, especially in this fashion, can definitely be funny.

Sturgis was expected to be the starting kicker this year, though he’s currently in a battle for the spot with former starter Cody Parkey.

If you wondered why teams carry two kickers, here ya go.
