Injury Update: Landon Dickerson receives MRI on right elbow, is expected to play in the Super Bowl
Good news on the Philadelphia Eagles’ injury front as the team gets ready to head to Arizona for Super Bowl LVII.
According to reports, Landon Dickerson received an MRI yesterday after hyper-extending his left elbow in Sunday’s win against the San Francisco 49ers. The MRI came back negative, and he is expected to play against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Landon Dickerson Expected to Play in Super Bowl
With 10:52 remaining in the fourth quarter, left guard Landon Dickerson injured his right shoulder on a 3-yard by Kenneth Gainwell. Dickerson bypassed the medical tent and headed straight to the training room after getting looked at on the sideline.
On the injury front, Eagles fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Philadelphia is relatively healthy.
Lane Johnson is playing through a torn abductor, which didn’t stop him from dominating the 49ers’ defensive front, Dickerson will throw a brace on his arm and be good to go, and Avonte Maddox only played 19 snaps on Sunday, giving him plenty of time to gear up for the final game of the NFL season.

Dickerson has played in every game for Philadelphia this season, allowing just one sack in 1000+ pass-blocking snaps. The former second-round pick has been having an outstanding year, earning the first Pro Bowl honors of his career.
On the heels of containing a talented 49ers’ pass rush, the Eagles will need Dickerson at his best vs. Kansas City in two weeks.
