Philadelphia Eagles starting left tackle Jordan Mailata has been ruled out for Monday night's game with a knee injury.

He suffered an MCL sprain Thursday when he got rolled up on by a teammate in practice. He did not practice on Friday or Saturday.

His absence isn't expected to be long term, but Andre Dillard will get the start when the Eagles (1-1) visit the Dallas Cowboys (1-1) for an NFC East clash in Arlington, Texas.

Mailata, 24, signed a four-year, $64 million contract extension earlier this month. He played all 129 offensive snaps through the first two games this season.

The Eagles activated tight end Zach Ertz from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday and he should be available to face the Cowboys.

Ertz, who is fully vaccinated, tested positive for the virus on Monday. The Eagles did not replace him on the 53-man roster, so there is no corresponding transaction.

Ertz, 30, has three catches for 40 yards this season. He has 66 receptions for 641 yards and four touchdowns in 15 career games against Dallas.
