Report: Eagles OL Allen Barbre to have surgery, could be done for season

Tuesday September 9th, 2014

Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Allen Barbre will likely undergo surgery that could end his season, reports ESPN's Adam Caplan.

Barbre injured his ankle in the Eagles' 34-17 win over the Jaguars on Sunday and was forced to leave the game. It was reported Monday that Barbre had a high ankle sprain and would likely miss several weeks, but would know more after seeing a foot specialist this week.

The 30-year-old has been with the team since last season, appearing at both tackle and guard. He started at right tackle on Sunday in place of Lane Johnson, who's suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's drug policy.

All-Pro guard Evan Mathis also left Sunday's game with an injury and is reportedly out an "extended period" with an MCL sprain. Top backup Matt Tobin was already out with a high ankle sprain.

The Eagles play at the Indianapolis Colts next Monday in Week 2.
