Eagles coach Doug Pederson said defensive tackle Malik Jackson suffered a "significant" foot injury in Sunday's opener against the Washington Redskins, Tim McManus of ESPN reports.

Jackson will undergo further testing to see if surgery is required and determine if it's a season-ending injury. Either way, Jackson is expected to be out for a while. The Eagles may make a roster move Tuesday to account for his absence, Pederson said.

Jackson was injured late in the game during a pass rush. He left on a cart and exited the stadium in a walking boot.

The Eagles signed Jackson to a three-year, $30 million deal this offseason. In pairing Jackson with Fletcher Cox, Philadelphia was slated to have one of the top defensive tackle duos in the NFL. Tim Jernigan will step into a starting role while Jackson is out.
