Eagles DT Beau Allen suffers pectoral injury

The Philadelphia Eagles will be without defensive tackle Beau Allen for quite some time.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported Saturday that Allen suffered a ruptured pectoral muscle and will be sidelined 4-6 months, according to a source informed of the situation. Allen will undergo surgery to repair the injury Wednesday with the hope he'll be ready to play for Week 1 of the season, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport added.

The Philadelphia Inquirer was first to report the news.

Allen, who is entering his fourth season with the club, was vying for a starting role after Bennie Logan departed during free agency.

In his three seasons with Philadelphia, Allen has appeared in 16 games each year, and started in three tilts in 2016.
