Philadelphia Eagles Tackle Injures Forearm

The Philadelphia Eagles have put together a fantastic roster ahead of the 2022/23 season, and if Jalen Hurts can be the man to lead this team around, they could be in for a very deep playoff run if they can have some luck and avoid major injuries. Unfortunately, the team couldn't escape that before the season began, as starting Tackle Andre Dillard left practice today after sustaining a non-displaced fracture in his forearm.

Thankfully for Philly, it doesn't seem as if the injury would be a significant one, as he is expected to make a full recovery and bee available for the majority of the season, but for a team with so much positivity and optimism around it, this isn't a good thing to happen before the season even kicks off.

Dillard was the 22nd overall pick in 2019 by the Eagles, and although he's been solid, it's safe to say that he hasn't lived up to expectations, and if this team is to once again make it deep in the playoffs and potentially all the way to the Super Bowl, he'll need to play as good as possible. The Eagles declined his fifth year option early in the off-season, so whenever he gets back on the field, he'll be auditioning for a new contract in 2023, but with all the talent and physical attributes, it's safe to say that Dillard should bounce back from this injury.
