Eagles' Andre Dillard: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson confirmed Saturday that Dillard (biceps) will be placed on IR, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

The 2019 first-rounder is expected to miss the entire season after tearing his biceps in Thursday's practice. With Dillard done for the year, there will be a competition between Jason Peters, Jordan Mailata, Matt Pryor and Jack Driscoll for the starting left tackle spot.

Eagles' Andre Dillard: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillard suffered a torn biceps at Thursday's practice and will undergo season-ending surgery, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The Eagles selected Dillard in the first round of the 2019 draft, ostensibly as the team's left tackle of the future. He was poised to get that chance this season with long-time LT Jason Peters swapping to right guard, but the nature of Dillard's injury will delay the move. In the wake of the news, Peters will move back to left tackle while Matt Pryor likely takes over at right guard.

Eagles' Andre Dillard: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillard (upper body) has been deemed day-to-day, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Per Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger, Dillard departed practice early Sunday, though it's worth noting he left the field on his own to get checked out. The 2019 first-round pick has bulked up ahead of 2020 as he prepares to start at left tackle for the Eagles after seeing limited action as a rookie last season.

Eagles' Andre Dillard: Bulks up for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillard has added about 15 pounds this offseason as he prepares to take over as the Eagles' starting left tackle, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

The 24-year-old started his rookie year at 315 pounds but played about five pounds heavier for most of the season, and teammate Brandon Brooks (Achilles) said he's currently up to 335 pounds. Longtime left tackle Jason Peters hit free agency this offseason and remains unsigned, but the Eagles have committed to moving forward with their 2019 first-round pick. Dillard appeared in all 16 regular-season games during his rookie year and started four contests, so he at least got his feet wet as a starter as he takes over the full-time gig.

Eagles' Andre Dillard: Full participant on estimated injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillard (knee) was listed as a full participant on Tuesday's estimated injury report, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Dillard left Sunday's game against the Lions with a knee injury after veteran Jason Peters (illness) needed to briefly leave the field. Considering Dillard was estimated to be a full practice participant, while Peters isn't even listed on the injury report, it seems both tackles should be good to go for Thursday's clash with the Packers.

Eagles' Andre Dillard: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillard (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Lions.

Dillard came in to replace Jason Peters (illness) before getting injured himself. For the time being, it appears Matt Pryor will bump over from guard to the tackle position.

Eagles' Andre Dillard: Scooped by Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles selected Dillard in the first round of the NFL Draft, 22nd overall.

Philadelphia traded up three spots to get its guy in Dillard, who looks to be the heir apparent for Jason Peters at left tackle. Dillard is considered the most polished tackle product in this class in terms of pass protection. Per Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus, Dillard had far and away the most "true pass sets" of any tackle prospect -- thanks in part to the Washington State offense -- and he turned out a high grade in those situations. The bottom line is that Dillard is both experienced and adept in pass protection and will be a major help on the line in keeping Carson Wentz upright.
