Abiamiri could miss season with torn Achilles’
Eagles defensive end Victor Abiamiri could miss the season after
tearing his Achilles’ tendon during a training camp practice at
Lehigh University, the team announced Thursday.
Abiamiri got hurt at practice on Tuesday.
Abiamiri, an honorable mention All America at Notre Dame, was
taken in the second round of the 2007 draft, but injuries limited
him to just 29 games in his first four seasons.
He has four regular-season sacks in four years, plus one in the
2008 NFC championship game.
Abiamiri missed all of last season with a knee injury that
required offseason microfracture surgery.
The Eagles’ defensive line has struggled with injuries in the
first week of training camp. Defensive tackle Mike Patterson is out
indefinitely after suffering a seizure on Wednesday and defensive
tackles Trevor Laws (hip flexor) and Antonio Dixon (knee sprain)
are both out of practice.
