Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive tackle Malik Jackson is expected to miss the rest of the 2019 season after injuring his foot in Week 1 against the Washington Redskins.

The Dallas Cowboys don’t play the Eagles until Oct. 20 at AT&T Stadium. It’s a 7:20 p.m. Sunday night game on NBC. The Cowboys play at Philly at 3:25 p.m. Dec. 22.

Jackson, who was a 2017 Pro Bowl selection with Jacksonville, is scheduled to have surgery next week to repair a Lisfranc fracture, which is an injury to the foot in which “one or more of the metatarsal bones are displaced from the tarsus,” according to WebMD.

Jackson hasn’t missed a game since his rookie 2012 season.
