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.
