Andre Dillard is week-to-week with a knee sprain. He is currently fighting for the starting LT job in training camp. Here’s what this injury means for the LT battle.
What It Means For The LT Battle
Andre Dillard was already losing the battle by a pretty large margin, so this injury doesn’t help him his chances at all. With Dillard out for the next couple of weeks, Jordan Mailata will get all the 1st team reps in camp. Prior to the injury, Dillard and Mailata had been splitting 1st team reps by alternating days.
Is The Battle Over?
If Andre Dillard is able to come back in 10-12 days, 2 of the 3 preseason games would have already been played and the majority of practices would already be finished. It is unfair to say Dillard has a 0% chance to win the starting job, but his chances are about as close to 0% as you can get.
