Dillard was injured in practice today and tests revealed a tear in the muscle. He’ll have surgery and look to come back in 2021.
It’s another huge blow to the Eagles offensive line after already losing Pro Bowl RG Brandon Brooks to a season-ending injury.
The silver lining for Philadelphia is the team could move OL Jason Peters back out to left tackle after re-signing him to replace Brooks at guard.
Dillard, 24, was drafted by the Eagles in the first round out of Washington State in 2019. He was entering the second year of his four-year, $12.371 million rookie deal and is set to make a base salary of $1.057 million in 2020.
The deal includes a fifth-year option for Philadelphia to make a decision on in 2022.
In 2019, Dillard appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles and made four starts.
