27 August 2020 Eagles News
Why can’t the Philadelphia Eagles injury bug just go away.
At practice today, left tackle Andre Dillard went down injured. We just found out that his injury will cause him to miss the entire season.
Eagles’ left tackle Andre Dillard tore his bicep at practice this morning and most likely will need season-ending surgery next week, as @Realdgunn reported. Dillard was dominant in camp.

Dillard will likely have to have season ending surgery to repair his bicep tendon tear. This is very unfortunate news for a player looking to make his mark with the Eagles.
Luckily for the Eagles, they brought back Jason Peters. Jordan Mailata has been getting the first team reps when Dillard has been absent the last few days.
The Eagles have also been very high on rookie Jack Driscoll, so it’s possible he can get a shot there. Either way, this is a big blow for the Eagles because it’s one they definitely didn’t think would happen. After already losing Brandon Brooks, the Eagles are down two starting offensive linemen.
