Philadelphia’s defensive line took a huge blow this week, as Malik Jackson went down with a foot injury. He will have surgery next week on his Lifsranc injury and will miss the rest of the season according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.
#Eagles DT Malik Jackson is expected to miss the season with a Lisfranc injury suffered Sunday vs. the #Redskins, sources tell me and @RapSheet. Jackson will have surgery next week. Tough one for Philly despite their DL depth.

Jackson, 29, was new to the team this season, coming in from Jacksonville. He was supposed to be a key part of a solid defensive line, but now the Eagles will have to rely on their depth. In the season opener, he had one tackle before going down with the injury.
In his career, he has 32.5 sacks and 55 tackles for loss in eight years.
