Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Jack Driscoll is done for the season with a "significant MCL sprain," according to a report from Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.
#Eagles RT Jack Driscoll will miss the rest of the season with a significant MCL sprain, sources say. The rookie toughed it out to finish the game against the #Saints but further testing showed the full extent of the injury. Tough one for him and the team. He was playing well.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) December 15, 2020
The Eagles selected Driscoll in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He appeared in 11 games as a rookie, starting four, and playing a total of 300 offensive snaps.
In a normal year, the Eagles might have cross-trained Driscoll at tackle and guard (and maybe even center), but he mostly focused on tackle during the COVID-shortened offseason. When he got opportunities to play, Driscoll performed well enough to at least solidify a job along the Eagles' offensive line in 2021 as a backup. Depending on which players return and which ones do not, he could also possibly compete for a starting job.
All five Eagles offensive line starters played every snap for the first time last Sunday against the Saints, and it was looking like the Eagles might return the same starting five this coming Sunday against the Cardinals. Nope. Instead, they'll likely have their 13th different offensive line combination in 14 games, with either Matt Pryor or Brett Toth likely to fill in at RT.
Driscoll previously dealt with an ankle injury earlier this season.
