The news is favorable, and at this stage of the game, that’s all you can ask for. As Philadelphia Eagles fans all over the Delaware Valley and everywhere else on Planer Earth held their collective breaths while awaiting the results of Landon Dickerson‘s MRI, a report was finally released on Tuesday.

Landon is going to be fine. He WILL be available for the biggest game the Eagles have appeared in since Super Bowl LII.

Thank NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Dave Zangaro for the update.

The roll call is complete. Everyone is present. Everyone is accounted for. All 22 starters will be available for Super Bowl LVII. Fans figure to paint Arizona midnight green with touches of black, white, and silver. Citizens of Glendale beware.

It doesn’t get much better than the most recent NFC Championship Game, but Landon Dickerson and company could deliver an amazing encore performance.

The NFC Championship Game was more of a coronation than a game with the Philadelphia Eagles seemingly experiencing only two moments that one could deem stressful. Christian McCaffrey’s brilliant run to even the score at seven points apiece was zero fun for the hometown faithful, and no one… and, we do mean NO ONE, wanted to see Landon Dickerson leave the field of play with an apparent arm injury.

Thank goodness it’s only a hyperextension and nothing worse.

The Philadelphia Eagles drafted Landon during Round 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft with the 37th overall selection. In his second season, he was elected to his first Pro Bowl. Frankly, we aren’t surprised.

He entered the NFL having racked up more than a handful of postseason honors during his final season at the collegiate level. Have a look at the 2020 resume: Rimington Trophy, Jacobs Blocking Trophy, Unanimous All-American, First-team All-SEC, College Football Playoff national champion.

On February 12th, he has an opportunity to add another accolade to the mantle, Super Bowl champion. He won’t have to do it alone. He’s one-fifth of the best starting offensive line in all of football. The Eagles have an opportunity to win another Vince Lombardi Trophy. Let’s hope they get it done.

Eagles O-line is the key to Super Bowl LVII glory. light. Hot
