The Philadelphia Eagles may have lost some depth in their offensive line.
Tackle Andre Dillard suffered a nondisplaced fracture in his forearm during Thursday's practice, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.
While Dillard will undergo further evaluation, Garafolo said the Eagles expect Dillard to be "available for most of the season."
That probably means he will lose time to start the season.
22 overall pick in 2019, Dillard made only nine career starts for the Eagles, five in the previous season.
He played snaps of 35 percent of the offense in 15 games last year.
Dillard became the focus of frequent business rumors during the presidency,
But the Eagles kept it as an insurance policy.
The injury leaves him with significant depth to tackle Jordan Malata and Len Johnson.
Dilliard, who turned 27 in October, is entering the fourth and final year of his rookie contract.
The Eagles declined the option for their fifth year this spring.
