Eagles placed RT Allen Barbre on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain, ending his season.
Barbe is expected to undergo surgery. He was filling in for suspended RT Lane Johnson, who can't return before Week 5. The Eagles will roll with journeyman Andrew Gardner in the meantime. Barbre's start against the Jaguars on Sunday was his first since 2009, though he appeared in 15 games last season. On the wrong side of 30, Barbre is signed on the cheap through 2017.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Eagles RT Allen Barbre (high-ankle sprain) is expected to undergo surgery that could "end his season."

It further thins an Eagles offensive line now down four of its top seven players, and means journeyman Andrew Gardner will have to fill in at right tackle until Lane Johnson's suspension is up. Philadelphia's depth is being severely tested one year after its offensive line helped fuel a run to the top of the NFC East. Barbre's status should be updated sometime in the coming days.

Eagles RT Allen Barbre has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.

It's a week-to-week injury that will probable sideline Barbre at least for Week 2, and possibly even longer. With RT Lane Johnson serving a four-game suspension to open the season, Barbre got the start in Week 1. If the NFL and NFLPA can agree to a new drug policy, it's possible Johnson's suspension could be lifted. If not, the Eagles will likely start Andrew Gardner at right tackle vs. Indy.

Eagles RT Allen Barbre suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Jaguars.

Barbre is filling in at right tackle during Lane Johnson's four-game suspension. The severity of his injury is unknown, but the Eagles need him to get right fast. Evan Mathis suffered a knee injury Sunday and Matt Tobin (ankle) is week to week. This Eagles offensive line that was dominant last year is thinning out quickly.

CSN Philly envisions Allen Barbre pushing Todd Herremans for the Eagles' starting right guard job.

Barbre will open the season at right tackle while Lane Johnson serves a four-game suspension for a PED violation. But after signing Barbre to a three-year extension earlier in the offseason, the Eagles plan on using him more. He's a plus athlete who can play both guard and tackle. Herremans is 31 and has a $4.2 million cap number. He struggled as a pass protector last season.

Eagles G/T Allen Barbre will likely take over at right tackle during Lane Johnson's suspension.

Signed to a three-year extension earlier in the offseason, Barbre is clearly the Eagles' top reserve lineman and should get the first crack at replacing Johnson. Barbre is not as athletic as Johnson, but he still possesses the plus quickness and athleticism coach Chip Kelly requires from his offensive linemen. Barbre played 89 offensive snaps at left and right tackle last season.

Eagles signed G/T Allen Barbre to a three-year contract extension through 2017.

Barbre, 30 later this month, can play both guard and tackle and played 89 offensive snaps at left and right tackle in 2013. He's the Eagles' top reserve up front. At the 2007 Combine, Barbre finished second in the forty (4.84), sixth in the shuttle (4.63), and second (7.40) in the three-cone drill at his position, so he fits coach Chip Kelly's scheme as a quick, athletic lineman. LG Evan Mathis and RG Todd Herremans have high salaries and are both in their thirties.
