Last year’s first round pick by the Philadelphia Eagles, Andre Dillard, has suffered biceps injury that will end his 2020 season before it begins. The injury will need surgery immediately, and recovery will keep him out of all 17 games.
The NFL’s Mike Garafolo reported the injury via Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
#Eagles left tackle Andre Dillard will miss this season with a biceps injury suffered in practice today, sources say. @RealDGunn first on the injury earlier. Tests revealed the team’s fears were warranted. Surgery needed. Tough one for last year’s first-round pick.

Dillard played in all 16 games last season, starting in four of them. He played 29 percent of all offensive snaps and 14 percent of special teams snaps during his first year in the league. Philadelphia selected him with the 22nd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
It is unclear who will take Dillard’s place as second on the depth chart. Jason Peters will continue to hold down the starting right tackle spot for the Eagles, however.
