The Philadelphia Eagles’ Pro Bowl left guard Landon Dickerson is expected to play in Super Bowl LVII. Landon Dickerson’s injury is a hyper extended elbow and he is currently listed as questionable.
The Philadelphia Inquirer was the first to report this news on Tuesday morning. Landon Dickerson’s injury occurred late in the fourth quarter while the game was already out of reach.
The Alabama product has been a key part of the Eagles dominant offensive line this season. He owns the highest pass blocking win rate amongst the NFL’s guards. He has also been one of the top run blockers in the league.
Dickerson is expected to play with an elbow brace during the big game, and will be a key piece in stopping Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones. Jones single handedly wrecked the AFC Championship game and made Joe Burrow’s day a nightmare. Having a player with Dickerson’s caliber ready to play will be crucial for protecting Jalen Hurts.
Members of the Eagles offensive line have stated numerous times how important it is to maintain a connection with the man next to them. And with Dickerson expecting to play that connection will remain intact.
Dickerson is now the only starter in the Eagles lineup to be listed on the injury report. Whereas Kansas City’s injury report expanded greatly after their clash with the Bengals Sunday night.
The second-year man made his first pro bowl this season and will look to help his team win it all on February 12th.
