Report: Eagles lose Andre Dillard to Injury at Practice
Eagles backup left tackle Andre Dillard suffered a no displaced fracture in his forearm during practice today, according to Mike Garofolo of the NFL Network.
A nondisplaced fracture is one in which the bone cracks or breaks but retains its proper alignment.
Nondisplaced fractures often require only bracing, booting or casting treatment.
Garafolo reports the "expectation is Dillard will be available for a majority of the season," so it could be a quick recovery for the 26-year old.
Dillard appeared in 15 games last season, making five starts at left tackle, after being drafted No. 22 overall pick in the 2019 draft.
He is the main backup to starter Jordan Mailata. The team has La'Raven Clark on the practice squad and Jack Driscoll in the event that Mailata went down.
